    Lovely service, nice food. Beautiful spot next to the lake and grass, easy to take toddlers as they can just run around on the grass.

    Absolutely fantastic setting and unreal venue, so serene down there and will definitely be back firstly However, the service could do with a bit of work and a bit of training up for sure Ensure the diner is being listened to - if a guest of the party mentions they are vegetarian then this has to be front and centre. Upsell on the drinks too. Get people having at least a drink and maybe even a starter and this will alleviate a lot for the staff as the diner is 'kept occupied' and is not sat there waiting with nothing in front of them. Seems '101' but must be right Everything else was really good, food was great, very tasty The events manager lady was really good too welcoming people in and saying good bye

    Portions and freshness of food outstanding. Staff polite professional and friendly. It was a wonderful way to spend a mother's day lunch thankyou. Would only have preferred more relaxing music being played but it wasn't a bother and just my own personal preference. I would definitely recommend to eat here for lunch on a special occasion

    The Mother’s Day Breakfast was lovely. We all enjoyed the food and had a great morning. It would have been nicer if we were seated near the balcony as we didn't get the outdoor vide, and that was why we booked it. The price was also rather high. $30 per meal made for a very expensive breakfast. All in all, a great morning.

    With the rains the cafe was split between the hall and undercover cafe parts. We were outside undercover. But service felt like an afterthought, our coffees forgotten. I understand it’s Mother’s Day, but all breakfasts were $30, plus coffees, but they did not all seem like $30 of value, well none did but not even in relation to each other. For 3 adults and 2 kids, $175! That’s pretty nuts.

    A beautiful mother's day breakfast. The hall was lovely and the native flowers on each table a great touch. We sat outside and loved the view. The food was great. This will be a mother's day tradition for us!
