    We were celebrating our anniversary and we were seated and given a glass of champagne on the house, a great start to our experience and it just got better from there. The Staff were knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly, a credit to the restaurant. The food was beyond delicious (and so were the cocktails). I would highly recommend and will definitely be making a return visit

    The wait staff were informative and polite throughout. The food was served at a good pace and was great. The cocktails were delicious and on point with the theme. One point of concern is we may not book here during the week if we were looking for a smaller feed as the buffets are filling.

    The food was amazing as always. The service was average. Don't get me wrong, the staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable on the menu. However it took far too long to take our order which meant by the time we were finished we run out of time for dessert. More on this later (we are not slow eaters either). We got our drinks at the start of the meal and that was it. Nobody came back to see if we wanted more drinks. To me this is a sin in hospitality. There is good money to be made on drinks and not offering more costs the business money. Lastly, the rice cooker stopped working. Apparently the kitchen can't use a pot to cook rice? We were offered a free dessert to make up for it. As earlier stated we didn't end up receiving this because of poor timing. They did take a side off the bill for us and the other tables around us. Which while nice, could have been totally avoided with switched on service. After all I would rather be giving the business more money, not less. I will absolutely be going back again. As stated the food is consistently amazing and I believe the lapse in service to be a one off, as we have eaten here many times before with no issues.

    The staffs knowledge of the food was fantastic. We ordered the Full Moon menu and were full of food by the end. So many beautiful flavours and textures. The only slip up was they forgot my cocktail that we’d ordered to drink pre food. We had to ask and I received it with the third course. One of my partners pet hates in a restaurant. Other than that the service was superb and I would highly recommend the experience at Moon and Mountain. We booked this for my birthday dinner on our return from South Australia via Ballarat.

    Was treated poorly by door boy and manager. Being accused of producing fake vaccination certificates, drove home to get one of our parties phones and show a pdf copy and was still almost refused entry. Was asked to produce identification to prove i wasnt lying after arging for minutes with a rude and dismissive manager. Totally over zealous, discriminatory and was well beyond their responsibility and authority. Have eaten there many times and spent thousands of dollars over the years and have never been treated so poorly at a resturaunt in my life. Will not be going back. Food was great as always.

    Food was great as always. Service was poor which is not normal. First two courses brought to the table before any drink service. Had to chase them up for drinks. We were second into the restaurant amongst the roughly 9 tables and were last to get third course after first asking them why we didn't have it, and were told it was on the way, and then having to ask the second time 10 minutes later. For the rest of the evening the service was attentive and not sure whether that was being sorry for the poor service to begin with or the need to get us out of the resturant prior to the next booking.

    Not a very warm arrival.. overly focused on vaccination requirements and per booking charges…. Everyone forgot to say “welcome”. Waiters new and thus struggling to grasp service needs and menu items. Food was very well executed and good value.
