The food is fresh and you can be sure you will be seated quickly with a hot drink and pastries. If the restaurant is busy and you want to order egg dishes, you may need to wait. So if you are a business guest, perhaps give yourself a little more time. As we speak the Yalumba is being refurbishment, so... More

I was only here for breakfast. However I would return for any meal here because of their attention to detail. Breakfast is themed and the day I was here, it was international. You have a drink as you come in, aptly called the "eye-opener". Someone comes to get your choice of hot drinks as you browse the menu to order... More

We celebrated our sons 21st birthday there and had a great time. Great value, great service, Yalumba has been a staple Brunch for some time - the Thursday night or Friday Brunch are both great fun!

We were staying in Meridien and came to this restaurant last year. It didn't disappoint this year, we came on shaken and stirred night - got a complimentary cocktail - I wondered if there would be more choice of cocktails on this theme night but just the usual standard drinks menu.

I have been to 3 Friday brunches at Yalumba in the past 6 months. This is an amazing brunch with an incredible selection of food.

The atmosphere was outstanding. Food stations everywhere and selection was limitless. Entertainment was fantastic and we danced our shoes off. Unfortunately, it will be closed for the next few months for renovations. But I'll be anxious to revisit when it reopens.
