Daylight interesting as can watch the rowing events from within. Has tinted glass so walking spectators unable to look into restaurant so assured of some privacy. Staff eager to please. Attractive food presentation, generous size serves although menu limited, basic, but nice. The venue offers 'something different' for corporate lunch, dinner or party group, overseas guests, yet also nice for... More

Lakeside is an out of the way restaurant with a simply and relaxed atmosphere. The food was amazing from entree to dessert. Our waiter Maria was brilliant and attentive.

Not the most romantic setting with blank walls, cheap industrial carpet and very basic tables and chairs but the food was excellent as was the service.

I have been here twice for dinner with my partner. Both times the service and food were lovely. The Moscato is amazing. It's nice and quiet in there so you don't have to yell to be heard, which is hard to find these days. I do recommend making a reservation though as they are closed alot due to private functions.

Chose Lakeside to celebrate a colleagues retirement and so glad I did. Vince was so easy to deal with and was always quick to reply to any enquiries regarding numbers and menu choices. I chose the 3 course alternate menu and the choices were mouthwatering! I had one guest with a dietary requirement which was no problem at all. Everyone... More

We discovered this restaurant about 3 years ago when we moved into a new residential estate close by. After that first experience we were hooked! We now frequent as often as possible. If we can't make it for a dinner we'll do Sunday brunch. The menu is varied enough to be interesting but not "mind boggling". The quality of the... More

Great food. Excellent sized servings. Meals prepared wonderfully - one of the top three steaks I've had in the last twenty years - cooked brilliantly and melted in my mouth. Great service. Vincent and staff go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your visit. Given its not central to Penrith, you have to know to go..... And it's... More

We often struggle for dining options in Penrith where food is not churned out on a production line, very happy to have found the lakeside restaurant. I previously thought this restaurant only operated as a function centre however after recommendation by a friend we visited on Friday night and are very pleased to have found a relaxed yet fine dining...
