Well who knew such a place existed in Corowa but it does. This is an excellent re-use of an old bank building providing quality product and service. Much better than the original bank service no doubt. We dropped in with friends for tapas and wine, both enjoyable. The tapas menu

Hello Richard, Thankyou for visiting us and taking the time to write the review. We try to stress to all of the many people who venture through our front doors that we are not a restaurant, bistro or even cafe, but a luxury hotel with day spa and a retail component, hence the word Lounge when we describe the area where we serve food and beverage. The food and beverage menu that we offer from 11am until 4pm is simply there if those people that are not staying with us,or using the day spa and wish to browse our retail area or simply view the stunning interior design and architecture and require a light snack, that there is something on offer. It is an abridged version of our extensive Club Lounge offering for our House Guests that is available in the evening - and which does provide both vegetarian and gluten free items - but only to our in house guests and occasionally just one outside table. We have come to realise that by offering food during the day to the general public that we will get confused with a cafe and not reviewed on our award winning guest suites and day spa, hence the reason that we are stopping food and beverage service to non hotel guests shortly. Thanks again for your comments and enjoying our Lounge and hopefully in the future you can indulge in the full guest experience here at CIRCA in our guest suites and day spa. Regards Kevin
