“Best food at Mt Hotham”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

quiet restauant tucked away but with great views across the valley
They managed to get the balance right again this year between price and food served.
A good choice of a nice lunch menu and wine to match.
Try this place for lunch instead of the other options available and you will be impressed.

“Fine dining? I don't think so!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at the White Crystal apartments and went to The White Room for our first meal at Hotham. The write up said 'fine dining' so my expectations were fairly high. We were ignored for about 5 minutes, so ended up just seating ourselves on one of about 15 empty tables, only to then be told that we had to go to the lounge while they 'found us a table'. When we were seated, the waitress rattled off a list of 12 items that were unavailable that night, including all tap beer, half the wine list and some items from the menu. We ordered, and our food came out overcooked yet cold. After a $97 bill for one drink and two meals, I can clearly say we will avoid this place again at all costs. A note to visitors - walk 3 mins and get to Last Run Bar. Top points for service, food and atmosphere there.

“Real food in the snow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

White room is a respite from the deep fried fare and noise mostly found in ski areas. This is quality restaurant fare at reasonable prices for what you get- $35 for a hearty main plus glass of wine in pleasant surrounds would compete with city lunches. Slow cooked hearty lamb with papardelle was rich and sweet. Mushroom risotto with truffle oil was nicely balanced, not overpowered. Coffee good. Sevice can be relaxed, but the view is great and heh you're on holidays.
