Booked dinner here with my partner and dearest friend and was expecting a great evening. We were one party of two others dining that evening in the whole restaurant. That should have been a sign. The waiter was obviously new and inexperienced. He managed to...More

Great Menu with lots of options for tasting and experiencing lots of Tassie's produce. The setting is magical, if you can - take the chair ride across and stop to have lunch or dinner at this restaurant. You will not regret it.

Picture this, a drizzly Autumn day with just enough light making its way through the clouds to enhance the rich golden colours of the leaves that adorn the outdoors. Then as you shake the rain from your umbrella with peacocks watching on unperturbed you step...More

A place of true natural beauty, where its been open to the public for free over many generations. With modern technology always changing at a fast rate- it's comforting to know The Gorge hasn't changed.

Food was hit and miss for our visit to the restaurant. The decor is dated and doesn't seem to take advantage of the fantastic scenery inside the restaurant. The kiosk section is nicer for atmosphere, where you can appreciate the scenery and local wildlife. The...More
