This is a gorgeous restaurant. It's fine dining yet maintains a lovely relaxed feel about it. Each dining table in the restaurant is positioned so that you have amazing views out across the lake and the city below. You can also see across to Mount...More

Went with family for morning tea. Ordered scones and drinks. Coffee , tea and hot chocolate fine. Scones like rubber balls. Doughy, heated in microwave which made them even heavier. One had a hair in it which was really off putting. General cleanliness left wanting....More

We had morning tea at the restaurant on a beautiful, cloudless autumn morning. The views were 'take your breath away' stunning. There is work being done to improve the outdoor area. It certainly would make a great location for a wedding or any other group...More

We brought some friends up for the view and some drinks but decided to eat instead, boy was that a mistake, lamb was blend and salad had hair in it, soup was just warm and watery, cheese board was very disappointing. As a chef my...More

We came across this place by chance, having not seen any reviews. The moment we stepped out of our car we were hit with a strong smell of a rotting carcass. The stench continued through the restaurant and out into the front garden, making it...More
