Arrived on time at 5.45 last night, hostess very uninterested, rushed off in front of us and was waiting at the table for us to get there. Dumped us and left us to be seated. Looked like we were an imposition. Meals arrived promptly, too quick really. Wine list extensive and expensive. Odd to order ...taste, half glass or full... More

I expected much more. Food was OK and service slow and lack lustre. Staff in the open kitchen looked disengaged and floor staff unmotivated. It was high quality steak, but not cooked as asked. The wine list is great. We did not have the patience to wait for sweets service.

The restaurant is attached to the beautiful Regatta hotel. We went in a large family group and had a really nice evening. There is a decent wine list, and great cocktails. They specialise in steaks and these were beautifully cooked, but there is also a wide selection of seafood, chicken and other meats. Highly recommended

We were part of a family group of 19 and were seated at two adjacent tables quite early, at 5:30 pm. The large room was virtually full by 7 pm and the noise level fairly high so this is not a place on a Saturday night for a quiet romantic meal. That was not a problem for us because we... More

Booked an early dinner as we were attending a show. Ordered straight away, but it took about 50mins before the meal arrived. The food was delicious but we had to rush as we were then running out of time. Allow yourself plenty of time, as the food is worth the wait!

On the side of the delightful Regatta Hotel, right on the river. A pleasant place and food OK.Steaks are probably best call. We did have very good Tasmanian oysters. Service OK also but inconsistant. Wine list good Go for the ambience

I was part of a group, 12 adults. We ordered and somehow the bread starters went missing. They came out just before the main and we were very hungry by then. What a shame. Our waiter did not seem to have the skills required as several staff came after him to sort it out. This was kind of a kill... More

We dined here on Sat night for our daughter's 21st. It was just a beautiful setting with excellent meals. The staff were friendly, however felt that there could have been more staff rostered on, as we literally had to wait ages to even pay our bill. The front area was very congested about 8.00pm ish, and there was no procedure... More

Visited with family very impressed with the restaurant. The steaks were great. The staff were ok BUT the organisation of staff was dreadful. We waited ages to be served different member of staff alll the time. Only saved by a great young Lady from Canada, who saved the day. Overall a great place just needs organising.
