Great place for Friday brunch and the free-flowing Champagne is fantastic. A la carte food is also fantastic.

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
