“Give this one a big miss”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

We were not staying here but decided to make a booking for dinner in the restaurant as it was our wedding anniversary.
We walked into reception, there was no one there. We waited and waited and no one came to serve us. While there we checked the menu and found it ridiculously expensive. We walked out without anybody knowing that we were ever there.
Judging from our experience, I should imaging that the dinner would have been top priced with poor service.

“God quality food and attentive service”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The food was served with interesting and complementary sides. Four of us ate, and all were happy with their meal. Service was attentive and yet discrete. The sommelier was knowleadgable. The housemade sorbets and icecream were excellent.

“Quirky place, great dinner”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We enjoyed dinner here on our second night staying at the sister resort Lilianfels and we had the best time. The restaurant is quite modern and extremely stylish. We loved just looking around at the pictures, the colours of the place, very stylish.

Staff extremely attentive but we felt that our young waitress was fairly new as she was a little in our faces and seemed apprehensive at times with topping up wine etc, but she was lovely and didn't get in our faces at all.

Food was simply scrumptious I must say, I enjoyed the way that you could select a "trio" of the entrees and desserts, that was a great way to share it with your partner. We selected the trio of entrees which were simply scrumptious - hickory smoked salmon with caviar and celeriac, cous cous with stuffed zucchini flower and the duck, extremely yummy entrees. Had barramundi for main which was simply mouth watering, husband had the guinea fowl. Very nice. We decided to only have the 2 courses as we wanted to relax in The Lounge at Lilianfels with a cheese platter. Extremely nice experience and we'll definitely return there for a meal

“Enjoyable experience(s)”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Enjoyed a lunch and a dinner at the restaurant and loved both.

Lunch: got a table with a spectacular views (see photos). The food was great and the servings were quite big, in particular a platter for two, which three of us could have easily shared with some leftovers. Service was very friendly and discrete. I can’t remember when was the last time when I’ve got my white wine with the fish without specifically asking!

Dinner: there was a compulsory minimum two course dinner on the Saturday, which we didn’t have a problem with. Again, the food was delicious and well timed, allowing us plenty of time to relax with discrete live piano music.

The highlight of the evening was taking coffees in the lounge, in front of the fire (unfortunately, the piano lady left for the evening just before we moved). Anlthough we stayed quite late, we never felt unwelcome, so thank you guys for not urging us on!
