We had high hopes of this ‘hatted’ restaurant and were sorely disappointed. After being seated we were advised that two exotic and key ingredients of two dishes were not available and had been substituted. The service was very ordinary with the waitress not coping with taking orders from 7 people, and not being familiar enough with the menu to realise that veal and beef were the same dish. We had to ask a couple of times for wine and drink orders (despite four waiting staff and an uncrowded restaurant). For the entrée, the rocket (watercress substitute) was yellowing. On a positive note the salmon entrée was cooked to perfection, although under seasoned (and with no pepper grinder within sight or reach of our table). The veal beef cheeks with mash for mains and warm berry and rhubarb crumble for dessert were an odd menu choice given the high summer season. The beef was bland and the ‘crumble’ was more breakfast granola than crumble. Our salad was forgotten. To top it off the waiter seemed confused about my liqueur coffee - asking if I’d like it as a cappuccino, then bringing a vienna coffee. Most of this would have been fine if we’d been in a suburban pub and weren’t paying $20 for an entrée and $35 for a main. All in all this was a very disappointing and very expensive experience. Give this one a miss.

From the amateur service to the very average food, this was a most disappointing restaurant experience. There is no justification for charging these kind of prices for this kind of ordinary bland food. Last words: go elsewhere

We came with high expectations and left highly disappointed. We arrived at the restaurant and were greeted and taken to our table. 25 minutes later we were acknowledged by the staff and we asked for our food and beverage order to be taken. Our entrees arrived in a reasonable time and were tasty, once again the mains arrived in a reasonable time however the fish was overcooked and the beef cheeks underdone. Dessert again took a long time to be ordered but arrived promptly. Service was fairly ordinary the only time we encountered our waitor was when we ordered or when delivering food. Value for money was
Not there. Considering this is a hatted restaurant I may of attended on a off night because it's a distinction which is not easy to attain. However I was made aware the owner has just opened a new bar so his attention may be elsewhere.

We tried to go here but it was closed Sunday and Monday night in the holidays in January. The phone recorded message was not accurate, there was no signage to explain out the front. What a pity. No one rang back. Very disappointed.

Go. Order. Eat. Smile. You will not be disappointed. They really know what they are doing.
