Great service but the food was terrible. The steak had no flavour and certainty wasn’t medium rare like I requested. The Seafood marinara was also very bland. A real shame as the resort is really something else.

This was definitely a afternoon tea than high tea affair. Majority of the food are sweet. (Some overly sweet). And I don’t think you can get seconds of the food like some other places.

The venue didn’t really scream high tea either. It felt like a bistro. This was a shame since the hotel grounds are lush, but the venue didn’t have much of a view.

This restaurant is absolutely lovely. The chefs cook with fire ovens (hence the name). Food is fabulous (expensive but worth it). Service is very friendly and efficient. Wines are great. I would recommend the degustation menu with matching wines!

We had the degustation menu. The quality of the food was 5 star and the serving sizes were generous to the point that we couldn't finish the last course. John, the sommelier, was fantastic, and made the difference between a good and excellent experience. Perfect for a special occasion.

What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon - having a wonderful afternoon tea with friends in great surroundings. The food was marvellous. We were not at all rushed and the staff helped whenever was necessary with refilling our coffee cups or topping up our water glasses. Great experience.

Nice place with great atmosphere how ever slightly let down on the food servings as we needed to eat again a little while after considering the main dishes we ordered were quite small and very pricey. I feel the Ala carte thing is taken a little too far. Also forgetting the drink order for my companion was also noted.

Definitely the best 3 course meal I ever had in QLD. The service was also very professional and the restaurant itself has a lot of charm. For entree me and husband ordered wild mushrooms and duck, for main steak and seafood pasta and for desert choc caramel mousse.

I had the best experience at The Fireplace Restaurant. The staff were lovely and helpful. The food was beautiful! The balance of flavours and attention to details of entree, mains and the dessert was impeccable! I will definitely be returning again in the future.

Introduced 8 yo granddaughter and mum to experience a High Tea. She loved the experience as did we, staff were very attentative and made her feel special. A lovely range of food with a glass of bubbles for the big kids (could not finish all the deserts!) and a strawberry mock tail. Lovely setting for the experience with Covid measures in place. Definitely will come back.

The ambience isn’t what it use to be. The interior has been painted white and it’s not as cosy as I remember.

You need to use the QR code to access the menu which is a little frustrating.

The food was delicious and the staff very attentive.

This was an all round delightful experience. My Husband and I attended High Coffee in October 2020. From the moment we walked in the door we were made to feel welcome, the service was impeccable.
We were seated next to a window (and I noticed that none were placed in the sun so that you could dine in comfort) and the experience explained to us. The coffee was bought out promptly (and was delicious) and refills offered quickly.
The food was delicious and plentiful - you never know if you are going to need to stop and grab lunch after something like this - we didn't even need dinner.
The location was also just sublime.
I highly recommend this experience specifically to you.

Food nicely presented but fillings in pastries & sandwiches very poor - hardly any filling at all. Some little hot pastries would have been appreciated!
Would not recommend to friends for High Tea but unsure with regard to a la carte dining at Fireplace as I haven't tried that yet!

There was more cakes than savouries. I think you need to have more savouries than the amount of cakes.
