I recently had dinner here as part of a work function. It's a lovely building with a great balance in décor between the historical and modern, very well done. The view from from the back windows is gorgeous, with a lovely verandah (with heaters, handy on cool night) and the whole place has a lovely ambience.
Unfortunately the food was a bit of a let down. Understandably with a large party we had a set menu, however there was no menu on the tables detailing what we were to be served (I've since worked out what each dish was by checking their website).
We started with canapes which were fairly ho hum mostly deep fried.
This was followed by alternating servings of lamb strap wrapped with basil, roasted capsicum and mozzarella in proscuito served on soft polenta with red wine jus (quite nice, however the polenta wasn't great) or oven baked atlantic salmon on golden potato rosti with lemon and chive beurre blanc sauce (most people couldn't seem to bring themselves to eat the potato rosti).
Dessert was either apple and raisin strudel with creme anglaise and vanilla ice cream or flourless chocolate and almond cake with raspberry sorbet and double cream both quite nice.
Overall whilst the venue was lovely, the service and food lacked something. A bit disappointing.
