We all had the trust the chef option. The variety, flavour and quantity of food was perfect. And at only $55, it's great value. The family style service works well, as not every dish is to everyone's tastes. Highlights were the venison carpaccio, tomahawk steak...and delicious roast spuds. Service and drink selection also great. Highly recommend.More

We had a delicious dinner here last night. Our waitress was most helpful and attentive to our child’s requests. We had the fish and chip croquettes to start and actually one order of this was enough to almost fill our child (they were so good...that we ordered a second lot for ourselves!). We then had the Beef Wellington which was the best I’ve had (which is what I was hoping for at $110 but this feeds 3 people easily and includes 2 sides - the potatoes were crispy and the carrots lovely and sweet). I had the coconut pannacotta for dessert which wasn’t quite as amazing as I had hoped (presented set in a large shallow dish but the highlight was the pineapple rum compote and sorbet). The drinks menu is one of the most extensive that will be found anywhere in town and this was a nice surprise. The pina colada and Midori illusion were excellent. Overall, we had a lovely evening with delicious food and excellent service. The background music was a bit too loud to hear our conversation easily and it is quite expensive but was well worth it for our evening celebration. Thank you to the lovely waitress and compliments to the chef. Highly recommended.More

In all my 40plus years of fine dining we thought that we had experienced the best that the industry can offer; that was until last night. Lucy our host was simply amazing. She made us feel so welcome and her polite, timely attention to every...detail was just perfect. Add the lovely decor and well presented quality menu and it for sure will be a place we will be returning to enjoy with our family and friends.

Very interesting / tasty food. But do be aware before you come that if you want to do Trust The Chef which is definitely the best value....then to get this everyone at the table has to be in. Definitely on the more upmarket side with...both food and prices.More

Excellent restaurant. We had the Trust The Chef which was very very good. Two different entrees & two different mains to share. Portion sizes are adequate for the quality of the food. Fantastic service. Car parking close by. Great bars close by for pre-dinner drinks.

I went to the monday room with my friends, we didn't get the degustation but we ordered 3 entree to share and 2 main plus sides... of course the deserts to finish. It was very busy ...full restaurant and the waiter (think he is from...europe) was busy but he looked after us really well considering it is the full house . The food is very tasty and I am not vegetarian or vegan but their vegetarian/vegan dishes were soo tasty. It was so tasty to impress the meat lover😉 scallops wqere cooked to perfection, ribeye and tarragon mayo was good combination, and homemade tortellini were stunning . Also the desserts..... we tried all 4. So good. Hazel nuts and chocolate was my favourite but the summer fruits was good, strawberry and coconut were absolutely delicious...will definitely go back.More
