“Pathetic...”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

If you except the views, this place is really not worth it.
Come armed with cash... is the first advice. You have to pay ($5) for car park... Really??? What next, the air I will be breathing? BBQ also come at a price $2 for 10min (!!!) may as well going to the pokies.
At the restaurant, the food is very very ordinary and serves are rather small. You'd better order a kids menu if you are really hungry at least they have plenty. Available choice is rather limited to the very basics.
While it sounds great the hedge maze is overpriced ($6) and not worth it at all. Spare your change & time, don't go.
As for the toilets outside, you may as well be in the middle of nowhere or in an overcrowded place so much they were dirty.
So much could be done much better in that place. What a shame to spoil such a prime spot of real estate.

“Ordinary!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We had high expectations of a restaurant that many said 'you just have to go, it's amazing'. Our waitress seemed dazed and looked as if she would rather be somewhere else. We ordered the special and received something similar from the normal menu. We ate it anyway because we were hungry. The meal itself was just ok. Do not order the cheesecake for dessert. It tasted like soap. Sadly we left there unsatisfied and disappointed. Also be prepared to pay $5 to park your car.

“Doesn't live up to the hype”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Amazing views, dull menu and service needs to be kicked up a notch eg. if you see a family of 3 celebrating their kids birthday, offer to take the photo instead of them attempting selfies; take out plates when we've finished our meal; don't send someone else home in our limo when we've booked it.

“good city view”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went there to just see the city from the mountain and found the view is really nice to look at. We were 9 people together and we enjoyed much. We wanted to do some bbq and found out that the bbqs are coin operated and $2 for each 10 minutes session. Anyway, we did it and spent some time in the afternoon there. oh remember, you need to pay money if you are there by car - $5/car.
