“Eat somewhere else”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We were told dinner was served from 6-8, so I asked for 7:45 and was told that was too late, so we went at 7:30. A huge room with no atmosphere, no music and only two people - soul-less. The menu was limited but I chose the safe trout with Hollandaise sauce. It came smothered in sauce, looking quite revolting. We just laughed about it. The girl serving had no knowledge at all of wines. At 8:30 four people came from outside to eat and were shown a table. Clearly the lady I had spoken to about the table had hoped to have an early night. A take-out pizza in the room would have been a more appetising evening.

“Every course a winner.”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Had no idea where to eat on NYE in Halls Gap but after reading reviews decided on Darcy's. There were10 of us, 6 adults and 4 teens. Some had entrees, some chose a la carte and some the Stone Grill. All the choices were excellent, tasty and perfect serving sizes. Had room for dessert and again all were happy with their choices, lemon meringue a big hit. Staff were attentive and friendly. A great way to finish off the year.

“Food is not bad but service and ambience is excellent”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

At Halls Gap, there are limited places to eat. Food is quite OK but it was made up by the excellent service provided by Nikki. Perhaps you can find a better chef, I think that will make your restaurant have full capacity. Nikki is great and she is an asset to your restaurant.

“Melt in your mouth steak”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Great meal, friendly staff and overall a nice experience. Service was a bit on the slow side but I could see the waiters were rather busy so was to be expected. Made up for it with the cheery attitude.
