Room service was very quick and the meals were nice. Had the chicken parms, and chicken breast on potato mash (mash wasn't anything to rave about) but over all the meals were good.

The Jarrah (pronounced with a hard 'J") Restaurant and Bar are a slightly unusual 'annex' to the Quay West Suites Hotel. Unusual because it's location promotes itself more to the waterfront patrons than to the hotel guests. That being said, the food is gorgeous, the staff are adorable and the tolerance for weird guests from Sydney is heart warming! Just,... More

Attended a function here on a Saturday night. I believe a lot of research went into selection of the venue & it proved to be tops. Great service of drinks & canapes. We did have breakfast one of the mornings, a buffet which was excellent. Instead of bring out a great heap of food, the servings were in small lots... More

I must say, food was exceptional on our visit. Salmon the wife had she tells me was beautiful and pork belly I had was very well done but a little tough. Side dishes were well portioned with old style chunky chips. For us the atmosphere was perfect. We were able to sit and talk without yelling. Well done team.

Work Christmas lunch booked here. One colleague has strict dietary requirements with restaurant advised when they asked. Upon arrival expected a separate plate for her, NO told to just help themselves to what they could eat! 3 children's chicken wings and a small salad later for $70.00!! Waiting staff excellent, management rude........food appalling. If I wanted Sizzlers 1980 buffet we... More

This restaurant has delicious food with friendly service and nice ambience. It's quite small but is good for intimate dining. It can be a little hard to find but it's tucked away behind the southbank thoroughfare up the steps near the HeraldSun Building. I recommend trying it.
