It has taken a long time to find a restaurant on the NSW Central Coast that has quality dining at its core. While it can be a little noisy, you just need to remember you are in a hotel/resort complex & then turn your concentration to the food. Servings are generous, almost too much, but it is the quality that... More

Last night we had dinner here as we have done so many times before but it has gone down hill, the first problem was at the bar when we asked for a tap beer but when the bar tender was poring the beer it ran out half way and and he asked if we wanted to just top the beer... More

We were part of a group of 50 & had a $36/person fixed menu of Turkish bread with butter as Entree, a choice of either Grilled Beef Rump or Barramundi fillet. The Turkish bread tasted yummy, Barramundi fillet was tasty & cooked just right. However everyone who had the Beef was a bit disappointed as the Beef was a bit... More

A classy 5 star restaurant with just the right mix of choices available, a great view from the restaurant overlooking the lagoon and golf course, would thoroughly recommend.

Right from the time we walked into the restaurant we were welcomed by a very attentive waitress Shanice.. She was very attentive through our our dinner, making sure we were happy with the service.. All the courses served were spaced out to give us enough time to appreciate what we ate.. Chef Garry created some amazing food for our main... More

The chef does a great job as the food was very nice and well presented. The gap really is the service with the staff very slow to serve and food being brought out sporadically. We also ended up with champaign when we ordered white wine. Overall not to bad and worth a visit.

We had the pleasure of meeting up with friends (two other couples) for a leisurely Saturday lunch at this delightful restaurant, with it's pleasant view across the golf course. We all ordered something different and we all enjoyed our meals immensely, everything was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The service was excellent. There was absolutely nothing to fault about this... More

We went to Barretts last night for dinner and were very disappointed. The service was very poor. The restaurant was only 1/2 full, but the staff, while very friendly were struggling to keep up. Almost all the empty tables had dirty plates and glasses on them that were not cleared the entire night. It took close to an hour to... More
