The food very good and service excellent. I was disappointed with the variety of game on offer - no emu or venison for example. I'd go again but hope they change their menu frequently.

I was invited to the function centre/restaurant for a business dinner. It was a set menu with 3 or 4 choices for 3-courses. I go to many dinners like this around the world and I don't set my expectations too high. I found the choices...More

We did the degustation. They do a terrible job of explaining the fantastic value it is. They explain it's five courses but they don't explain how many dishes they bring out as part of one course. We loved the food. Modern Australiana. Service was fine....More
