Title of review says it all, its all just about the view. Everything else is just blahhhh. Cost to park $6 is entry fee for everyone, you do have some walking trails but honestly that walk through the woods can be found 1 kilometre away at park entrance for free. Cost of food & beverages is over the top for... More

Hadn't been there in years as it was just too amateurish. Thought after 20 years it would have improved. Very disappointing. Very, very slow service, food appallingly cold, greasy food, innattentive staff, ( or should I say untrained children), with a part time job. A magnificent location that needs a good chef and good floor supervision. Never again

I visited here for lunch recently and was quite disappointed with the food. It seems they are relying on the views to do all the impressing for them. I had a risotto with peas/asparagus/goats cheese and added chicken. It was supremely bland even with extra salt and a very claggy texture. The chicken parma was just pub quality, although at...

We had an early Christmas office dinner party yesterday (on 19th Nov 2016). There was table... More

Definitely some beautiful views, if your going during the winter wrap up lots because it's very cold. It can be very crowded during the sunset as everyone literally is there. So please be mindful of other people and other families. Sunset pictures are beautiful. It's a shame when we went they closed the top but I bet it's even nicer... More

Were picked up by Kate driving the Limousine and on arrival were shown the views. Inside and taken to our table by the window, drinks were a bit slow at first then the orders were taken and the meal was very nice and the drinks flowed after that. Service by Johnathon was rather good. The night time view of the... More
