We decided on a night out and chose The Deck On High. We had wonderful seating in a very cosy corner. The meal was very nice, and we enjoyed our drinks with friends.

The Deck has a range of inside and outside dining, including a bar and internal (but dark) private rooms. Meals are reasonably priced and there would be something on the menu for all - their Asian fusion dishes are excellent, particularly for "the country", where basic steaks, chicken, etc are more the norm. Sitting upstairs and outside is to truly enjoy The Deck (so named) and if you can get lucky and get a front row table you can watch the town and towns folk go about their daily lives (farmers and farm dogs, cattle trucks and horse floats passing down the main street, etc) plus the heady vibe of tourists passing through town enroute to the snowfields or the boating on Eildon. Mansfield is a prosperous town with surprising shopping opportunities as well. But back to the restaurant, they cater for everybody, arrange some themed evening events with entertainment, all in all a reliable place to eat - think you may need to book for evenings or if you really want to sit on the deck at lunch, particularly in the summer.

Love the outlook from the deck upstairs. The coffee is not bad, and the different menu is a great contrast from many standard country establishments.

We were there for lunch. Although we were greeted and given a seat quickly, the waiter was very slow to come and take our order. At one stage I was tempted to get up and walk away.

Food was a bit too salty for my liking and the portion was small for the price we pay. For example, the pork slider was almost $20 but consists of only two small pieces of pork on two small buns with about 10 salad leaves.

Good atmosphere with the decking upstairs but probably not my favourite place in terms of service and food.

Hi Southsoul,

We appreciate your feedback. While we are pleased that you were addressed and seated promptly, we do apologise for delays in table service. We strive to uphold high standards with respect to our food and beverage product and its delivery. With regards to the Pork Belly Slider Buns - these are $16.00 which we do not feel is close to $20.00. They are served as either a two piece or three piece depending on the thickness of the cut - the two pieces are usually significantly thicker so we apologise if this was not the case. Our pricing does incorporate table service in what we believe to be a beautifully furnished and relaxing environment. We would welcome a return visit and would be happy to email you a discount voucher for this purpose.

Kind regards,
Melissa Crow
