Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Thought we would enjoy a family dinner after a big day out, we ordered our meals which arrived in a timely manner, my wife and i were looking forward to the stone grilled bacon wrapped pork fillet and the Prime fillet. Alas both arrived aerial...topped dressed with copious amounts of salt, i brushed the salt aside only to find the first mouthful of rare prime fillet had been bathed in salt as had the bacon wrapped pork fillet, I was nearly reaching after the first teaspoon/mouthful of salt/ steak and had to send it back, it seems more and more restaurants are adding salt to everything to try and bolster up their Bar turnover, one may as well go to McDonalds ,,you want fries with that?? extremely disappointing.More

Good range on the menu, but we chose the Thurs special of Rubs with the Spicy Thai sauce. The ribs were perfectly cooked and tender with a very nice coleslaw and a good fresh side salad and roasted vegetables. The staff were attentive, friendly and...helpful.More

Went on a Thursday night which was the ribs special deal $25 for ribs, slaw and chips. Nothing special with fatty ribs and tasted like the sauces had just been poured over but may be mistaken. Wouldn’t recommend. Think we were lured by the price...against the higher priced menu.More

Pizza... out of this world! especially if you like a think crispy base (almost like a focaccia style a little bit) and loaded with super tasty toppings! We went for Hawaiian, Meaty one, and grilled chicken. All delicious! And kids loved it as well. Highly...recommend if you are looking for a place to eat in Hanmer Springs.More

Dined on a Thursday of show weekend. Have been here before. Wife and I had the ribs special - her the Thai ribs and myself the bbq ribs. Was really tasty. I can’t really complain as they were the special of the night and only...$25 each - but the only thing holding me back from giving it a 5star was that I could have done with a little more. However; was cooked perfectly. Food came out promptly. Service was great. Had the chocolate Brownie desert with coffee and it was great! Thank you.More

Absolutely fantastic service and food. Our daughters have coeliac disease and the waitress was so helpful in recommending menu items that would be suitable for them. The food was great and our girls really enjoyed their dinner...so much so that we went back the following...day to have dessert for lunch! Highly recommend this place.More

Great Restaurant in Hanmer Springs. Food is mouth-watering, but slightly expensive. Bar includes non-alcoholic cocktails which we found rich in flavour. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We even left a tip. Highly recommend. It’s a must go.

We were prepared to have a few drinks as well as a meal. My partner requested a little parmesan to be sprinkled on the fettuccine. Both managers advised they would charge $4 ..and wouldn't waver on this. The beer was on the wrong taps. Heineken...was coming out of the Tiger trap and Tiger was coming out of Heineken. Pointed this out and swearing was heard from the Indian behind the bar. We left. Never to return again. Not recommended....More

Terrible meal, ordered a pizza and it was awful. Chefs have obviously never been to Italy. I got a bit of pizza with my cheese. Greasy and sloppy and generally not good at all.
