Together we had the king fish ceviche, kapitan duck, sweet and sour lamb, kampung beef curry and the special ice cream desert. Everything was perfect, super fast and surprisingly not as expensive as we thought it would be. The waiters, sommelier were all super friendly, and happy to accommodate our needs. Definitely want to dine here again, and the other... More

We had the banquet which included a glass of bubbly. The food and service was great. The $18 corkage is on the robbery side of things. If you want to buy a bottle of wine there it will set you back $50. We stuck with the included bubbly. Not sure why they have such a ridiculous corkage charge.

Amazing! Great portions, great presentation and delicious food! Highlight was the king prawn tom yum dish! Service was fantastic too. From the outside the Resturant does not look like much but once in side, it really creates a memorable atmosphere. I highly recommend this place!

Our most recent visit was a dinner featuring a vineyard from Margaret River presented with specially matched food. It was superb! The restaurant was full and still they maintained their usual high level of service. The attitude of the wait staff was attentive and very pleasant. At the end of the meal, everyone in the restaurant spontaneously applauded. A wonderful... More

A really good evening meal for three couples. Service was spot on. We had a Chinese New Year set menu, which was very good. Certainly there was no shortage of food. Personally I don't think the barramundi dish "works" all that well, but I'm prepared to accept that could just be personal preference. Everything else was great. The kampung beef... More

I certainly enjoyed although my wife was not so impressed. We had the Valentines day Banquet, served expeditiously. A good variety of food small serves but there was plenty of food. they are BYO but at $19 a bottle rather expensive but did not look at the wine list to compare. A little on the expensive side but appeared to... More

I've been dining at the Lanterne Rooms regularly since it opened about 8 years ago. The food is always consistently great and the staff have always been wonderful. Highly recommended!

We had dinner on a Wednesday night. While it was busy it was not noisy and we felt we had some space and privacy because of the way the restaurant is designed, separated into smaller dining areas and screens which absorb sound. We had the Chinese new year banquet - essentially a degustation providing small servings of most dishes on... More
