We are 3 couples who have know each other for over 30 years. We go out to catch up infrequently and celebrate per the review title. We booked a Saturday night after a hot summer day in Sydney followed by an afternoon storm. We were greeted by the smiling engaging Maitre d who apologised that service would be a little... More

We used a Groupon voucher to try out Lachlan's Restaurant and we were so glad we did. We were able to choose from the full A La Carte menu food - there were some great choices. All the food we had was lovely - we do recommend the Lamb Shanks and Beef Eye Fillet. You could not fault the service... More

We had a conference at Old Government and used the catering from this restaurant. The food was OK but the service was beyond slow. We preordered our lunches in the morning and it took me up to 30 minutes to receive my meal each day. Unacceptable when you have 45 minutes for lunch. They simply needed to get more staff... More

Had a lovely dinner here using a Groupon voucher. Interesting old buildings nicely set out as a restaurant. Had choice of the whole menu 3 courses with a bottle of wine. Excellent service as well so worth a visit. Possibly a touch expensive without a voucher but great for a special occasion when you don't want to go into the... More

We were lucky enough to visit on Australia Day when there were constant guided tours available run by volunteers and our whole family, including the teenagers, found it really interesting - and now would like to visit the new Government House.

Have been taking friends to Lachlan's at Old Government House for years. Lovely old heritage setting around a delightful courtyard. Meals have always been exceptional and now all meals are available as either an entree size or a main size. The entree size is just perfect for those with a smaller appetite or for those who wish to also indulge... More

We just had our quiet, intimate wedding reception dinner at Lachlans and I couldn't say enough about how amazing this place is!! Food was exceptional, the staff were outstanding and the grounds were breathtaking! I will be returning and would recommend to anyone who is after the best venue! Made the night unforgettable!
