I know lock down and all but the mussels served were disgusting they were frozen left overs that were stringy with no bulk, the seafood bisque was way below par with tiny scallops and prawns again frozen. Sorry for the price I won’t sugar coat it should be all fresh the fresh seafood market is just in town and the mussel boat is right next door no excuse. The waitress however on the night was fantastic.

I’ve wanted to dine with you for many years and can honestly say I was not disappointed. Everything was fine except there was only 1 waitress wearing a mask, a waiter with one below his nose and the rest not wearing one at all including the waitress who attended us most of the time. I felt uncomfortable about it and wished I had said something at the time. We all live in Portarlington but were not checked so could have come from anywhere in a lockdown. Shame the current rules were not followed but that’s not to say I wouldn’t return in easier times

I was very disappointed . We were seated upstairs which I was looking forward to. Until we got to our table and noticed that the tv was on showing horse racing. Then I ordered my gin and tonic and there was a plastic straw in it. Totally unacceptable in today’s world when we should be more mindful of our environment and reducing plastics. I can go on but I won’’t . We will not be returning !

Paying $40+ per meal that didn’t wow us. Location is lovely and has potential with more silver service experienced staff. Horse racing on a TV took the ambiance from 4-5 to 2-3, felt like we were at a bar, not a nice restaurant.
We didn’t feel like hanging around for dessert and coffee like we normally would have.

My wife enjoyed her overall meal, the entree I felt was a bit too salty, my main was blain in flavour but I did enjoy the dessert and the wine.

Food and service were great, but prices are unjustifiably expensive for the dishes presented. Paid $20 for one glass of scotch and $10 for water. Meals are also way overpriced.
Good experience but wouldn't go back again any time soon.

All four main meals were brought out together and all were extremely enjoyable. Possibly , a little quicker on the drinks supply would be the only thing that could improve. However , a very enjoyable day was held.

Such a beautiful restaurant with incredible food and service. The lighting was a little disappointing as it lacked atmosphere and was a bit too bright & glary for intimate dining. Next time would go for lunch to enjoy the views. Food was delicious!

When we arrived, there was confusion over our table. It had to be cleaned down and reset. We were then seated and forgotten about.

It took at least ten minutes to get someone's attention to take our order. My wine arrived followed by the oysters, which we finished before my daughter's cocktail arrived.

The service was haphazard.

The food was fine.
