This was by far the Worst Melbourne Cup luncheon we have experienced. Starting with 5 phone calls to get confirmation of booking...then the day! We arrived 25 mins early to have drink at the bar to be greeted by abandoned vacuum cleaner at lift entrance. Bar closed....at entrance of the restaurant was cleaners trolley. Entree...average. We were advised Wellington was rare to medium. Was very well done, not pleasant. Not one flower or anything to indicate Melbourne Cup. Unprofessional fashion parade to say the least. Race was shown on old roll down movie screen and could not hear due to poor sound. At the best part of race...message flashed on screen that broadcast would switch off due to lack of power! Have dined in very many restaurants for this day....have to say, for $160 this was a disaster! The only positive was we had a nice waitress who was attentive to our drinks.
