Serving sizes for mains were entree size. I had to have a lamb kebab elsewhere afterwards, I was still hungry. Angel Hair Pasta had too much vinegar and chilli, couldn’t taste the crab. Oysters were shabby and looked old and tired. Ordered a grapefruit seltzer. They offered pot or pint. Ordered a pint, it came in a wine glass stacked with ice. Absolute joke. Had a pot of beer and it cost $16. Disgraceful value for money. Two people. No change from $220. Didn’t even have desert. Avoid this place.

Would highly recommend the lamb shoulder but you could skip the pickled vegetables. Catered for my coeliac partner with most items on the menu having gluten free options. Unfortunately that they run out of gluten-free bread but that happens

The food was absolutely amazing. We had the slow cooked lamb shoulder which was coupled perfectly with slaw and the most delicious pickled vegetables. For dessert....you must try the Lamington Bomb Alaska....it was The Bomb. And the Beetroot Chocolate Cake.

I had made a reservation for 8p.m. for 3 people on Wednesday (30/03/2022). We arrived 5 minutes before 8p.m, and ordered within 15 minutes. I had ordered a porterhouse steak with mushroom sauce (MEDIUM RARE), my other guest had ordered a rib eye fillet with garlic and butter sauce (MEDIUM RARE). My partner had ordered angel hair pasta with crab. The waiter who had took our order had lost his voice (for no fault of his, the management should NOT have requested him to work that day). We could not hear anything he was saying as the ambient noise was very loud. He kept leaning into my face without a mask. He cautioned us that the steaks would take 30-40mins and suggested we order a starter. We order the jumbo prawns. Our starters only arrived 1 hour later, the prawns were not 'jumbo', and they tasted awful. It was undercooked. Our steaks and the pasta arrived 30 minutes later. BOTH steaks were burnt on the outside and very rare inside. Clearly, very cold meat had been thrown onto the grill. It was awful. The pasta was flavourless, prawns undercooked. Me and my other guest were okay, but my partner struggled with stomach discomfort overnight and this morning. A horrible experience overall, and not worth the $200 we had paid. Throughout the time we were seated, only the waiter who had lost his voice served us and checked up on us, no one else bothered to. We could also hear the table beside us lamenting on how poor the service was overall. What an appalling management team and restaurant. No one should ever go here, and have to experience such atrocity in the name of 'fine dining'.

Took far to long for cocktails to be made (25-30 mins). No one checked on us to order more drinks or even our food after we had our first drink. Food was terrible , Ragu pasta was flavourless and chips with burger were cold. There was a $73 Saturday surcharge which is outrageous. Left feeling ripped off. Will never go back.

We didn't think the steak was as tender as it should have been for 45 day dry aged beef and the knives which we were provided with could have used and edge. Otherwise great!

When we did speak with someone, the woman we spoke to was absolutely awesome. We went to the bar to order drinks as we arrived earlier than expected. This is my only real quandary ... when paying a silly amount of money for cocktails, I would expect that the bartender fine strained an espresso martini, or a margarita. I didn't know how to bring this up on the day, but there really is no excuse for making a sub par drink, and then paying almost $30 for it. Our main waiter had his last day working in Hospitality, and he made the experience awesome. -Perplexed.

The waiter did remove one of the two calamari mains we ordered from the bill, but unfortunately my son wasn't keen to try another course after the calamari. Angel hair pasta with lobster was very good, as was the panch phoron prawns as a starter. I'll still come back for another meal, as the restaurant and ambience were very good, but overall, this trip was only a fair experience.

(Why do upmarket restaurants continue to serve these? Cheap and easy, I guess. I can, after all, get the same at Macca's for a lot less money!) My chicken schnitzel was well cooked and still juicy, quite an achievement. My wife and our friend had the lobster 'entree' which they found excellent. The wine-list is stupendously long, although the first wine we ordered was not chilled. We had to reorder another wine which, fortunately was not too much more expensive. (Yes, there's a lot of Grand Cru Burgundy and Bordeaux with prices to match!) All-in-all, well worth a visit if your bank-balance is healthy.
