You really can’t beat Brick Bay for its stunning gardens, ponds, sculptures and scenery as a back drop to a wonderful long lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We haven’t been for a couple of years and we were delighted to see the gardens still looking...so beautiful, particularly with all the autumn leaves coming through. The food has stayed consistently good and the service was friendly and efficient. Being vegetarian it is a restaurant close to my heart that provides a considerate entree and main. Tasty and interesting. My mum had the beef cheeks which she found really tasty and the truffle chips always a favourite on the side. Was lovely to be back and we won’t be strangers for so long again!More

Hi Kushla, Thanks for coming back to experience it all again. Is there anything we can do to make it a 5 star experience for you next time? Cheers, Tom

We popped in for brunch and had planed to do the sculptural trail but weather was a little dodgy today so past. Everyone enjoyed their brunch.

Great location for lunch and a glass of wine. Various seating options we were lucky enough to secure a table on the veranda next to the pond. The food and wine were both good as was the service.

Worth a visit to dine here and DO the Sculpture Art trail too! I had the Tofu salad for lunch - so delicious! Service was great. Such a beautiful view all around where you sit.

We had booked a table indoors but was told we had to sit outside in the wind.The meal service was very slow and poorly cooked. The servers were young people who took the brunt of it from other customers as well.More

We had a lovely lunch here. Very good service, excellent food (but all four of us had the squid) and superb wine. A memorable visit and we will definitely return. Lovely location too.

Beautiful place to end of sculpture walk. I would recommend booking a table as we only just managed to get one! Kids meals were great and the sharing platter was delicious

Birthday lunch celebration. Just absolutely beautiful food we had a series of small plates to share and then mains. We had three different teenagers with different food requirements and that was all handled with ease. Waiters were so helpful, patient and capable. Best of all...the food was absolutely lovely. Big shout out to the chef, and special thanks to our lovely and very helpful young waiter - Robbie, and also Rosie.More

We had a family lunch celebration for 17 people with an age range from 12 years - 95 years and everyone thought it was wonderful. The food (set menu of tasting plates and platters) was delicious and plentiful. The venue and service was outstanding.
