“Very enjoyable”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Yummy food with peace and quiet - the kids were straight to the kids corner with iPads, dolls house and train set as well as many other toys and activities. They only came back to the table to eat their dinner in record time and disappear back to the games again! Heaven. Had both lunch and dinner on different days and all very tasty ( can recommend the samovar salad, seriously delicious, especially for a salad), but all adult and kids meals were good portions and very tasty and fresh. We will be right back the next time we head down south :)

“Below Average Food...”
Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

We decided we would go to the samovar for a nice dinner. How wrong could we have been firstly we ordered tapas a ciabatta with olive oil loaf turned out to be stale toasted bread served with blatantly obvious vegetable oil on the side !!! The mains were a long wait afterward and two of us ordered barramundi served with tangy sauce.. Turned out to be very average cooked barramundi with some jar tartare on the side.

Unfortunately we won't be visiting samovar anytime in the near future

“Total turn around!!!”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

Since the new people took over at the end of December the Samovar is back to the way of the 'old days'. We are back to coffeeing there most days. Kids love making the cup cakes, the kiddies corner is great..
So nice to have a peaceful lunch with friends and know the kiddies are happy.
Most of the staff are really friendly and happy to help. Still a couple of glitches that need to be sorted but If you dined there last year I really recommend you go back now. You won't be disappointed.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Went on 31 December 2013 for NYE meal with wife and elderly mother. Large meals presented on platters with different themes, and very tasty. Food was cooked very well and served at the right temperature. Service was excellent and wait staff fun and very friendly and engaged with customers extremely well including dancing with them. Drinks reasonably priced. Terrific play and entertainment area for kids to allow adults space to discuss important things of the world. Restaurant now has new owners and has improved immensely from last visit. Well done Lisa and Nathan and bonus points to great waitress from NZ. Highly recommended and will return..
