The food was very basic. Way to much balsamic reduction on everything. Starter portions were far too big. The Brioche bread, certainly wasn't Brioche, more like toasted french stick. The sauce with the steak tasted like a packet sauce. The resturant manager was turning people away at 7pm when the restuarant was empty, then going and telling the chefs what... More

We were unlucky enough to have the first night of a new menu. What a great disappointment. We booked for 8 o'clock and we were the last to arrive in the Restaurant. From the time we entered until we left we felt we were rushed out. We ordered bread from the menu only to be informed that the brioche that... More

Amanda, our waitress was a star!!!! She looked after us for dinner and breakfast. The kangaroo was good. The beef was fantastic! Breakfast was a continental offering, plus pancakes.

Mixed feelings ...... We booked early on a Wednesday for the evening. They wanted us to eat at 6pm but relented to 7pm when we pushed as that was a little early for us. It was not a busy night but the male waitperson was not at all friendly and I felt he barely tolerated us. We did not have... More

There were 10 of us who had dinner here over three consecutive nights. Between us we managed to eat everything on the extensive menu and all raved about the quality of the food. There was not one complaint from any of us. Bob, the Maitre D made sure that everything went smoothly without being intrusive and he was caring, polite... More

As we stayed at the resort, we decided to have dinner at their onsite restaurant. It was a quiet time of the year, so just two other people apart from us in the restaurant, which was fine as we didn't have to compete with noise levels or attention from the waitress. We enjoyed an entree of the garlic & herb... More

My bf and I went for a nice drive up to wise mans ferry. We stumbled across this lovely restaurant. We had the eye fillet for lunch followed by chocolate brownie and ice cream. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the brownie just melted in your mouth. Thank you for a lovely Sunday lunch! We will be back!

A very good resort with beautiful gardens, very comfortable and spacious rooms, good car parking facilities and very pleasant staff. A well maintained 9 hole golf course compliments the resort. The area can be reached entirely by car or by use of a free ferry service and car. Well worth exploring the are for a couple of days. The restaurant... More

Food was fresh and tasty, service was very good, good selection of wines available. Nice ambience but they could vary the music a bit, we went through the playlist twice which was a bit boring.
