“Always good”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Been there a number of times, generally on special occasions - awesome stuff. Probably had the most amazing dish of my culinary experience there - this unbelievable blue cheese suffle.

“All good, bar dessert”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

I really enjoyed the food here especially the lamb, which was superb. There is an excellent wine list and the service was attentive,The only disappointment was the dessert, so mediocre. It was meant to be served with creme fraiche and ice cream, when in reality a little blob of Ice cream was all that came with it. Frankly, it was only the standard of a very ordinary dessert one might get at a local cafe for $5-$6.

“Different isnt always better.”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Took some clients to Jacksons for the degustation menu. Althoug some courses really hit the mark we felt that overall the meal was not cohesive enough. A degustation at the Loose Box for instance leaves you feeling much more satisfied with the experience.

The restaurant is very noisy, dont take clients if you want to be able to hear them well.

“Good, but pretentious.”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Food and service good, if a bit aloof. Chairs uncomfortable and not up to snuff for the price. It was enjoyable enough, but not enough to return.

“Bugger the spoilers”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Its so obvious when people write a bogus review on here. I cannot help but comment on the bitterness of some. Its rather blatent when someone fails to mention a particular fault in food or service and just says, "don't waste your time" or a similar off hand remark. Your ignorance of the industry and inability to critique just shows how little you know, not only about food, service or restaurants but how dull you are. Do you really think the general diners who read your comments take them as gospel?
No, neither do we. Do us and yourself a favour....tell us why. tell us what was so bad. tell us what you ate and tell us when. Or better still don't even bother.
