About Barrett's Restaurant
Central Coast dining in Barretts Restaurant is the perfect place to relax and enjoy fine food and the stunning vistas overlooking the tranquil fairways of Magenta Shores Golf Course and lake. The modern Australian menu offers a Mediterranean influence featuring fresh seasonal local produce.
Beer selection was as limited as the menu
Small menu (4 entrees, 4 mains) and a little pricey (4 people for dinner (1 bread, 2 entrees, 4 mains, 2 extra veges, 2 bottles of red) = $400. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal - really great desserts! and quality wine but it would have to be a special occasion to justify the spend.
Beautiful evening spent at Barrett’s Restaurant. The food and service were exceptional.
We unfortunately had a glass of sparkling wine spilt on us at the start of our meal but that didn’t ruin our meal. The entrees in particular the prawns and chicken were very tasty. The mains of barramundi and beef were cooked perfectly and delicious. Breakfast was an amazing variety of everything you could imagine. From the hot breakfast to the fresh bottled juices and protein balls. We can’t wait to stay and dine again.
Over the years I have loved dining at Barrett’s for the amazing food and exceptional service they have been renowned for. Sadly my last experience was not so similar.. while the staff at Barrett’s are top notch, the same can’t be said about the menu and the food we were served.. for main I had the duck confit,which was over cooked served with 3 pieces of gnocchi!! The menu had nothing exciting and everything that we had was supposedly “chefs recommendation”. I surely won’t mind paying a higher price tag if the food was exceptional. This time around Barrets really disappointed in the food front.. The only thing Barretts has going for themselves are the staff at Barrettes were exceptional in their service. I would like to make a special mention of Jeanette who was our waitress.. she was very attentive and friendly.. Here’s to hoping my next visit to Barrett’s will change our current opinion.
I wouldn't ask your guests at time off booking if it is a special occasion and then not even acknowledge the occasion, not even a congratulations! plus once we were seated and our order was taken and the meal served we never seen staff again till we had to chase down our bill at which point we were asked if we wanted dessert or coffee!
A nice Meal Again Lighting was just a little dim but food was fine
The restaurant could do with updating their menu and offering more vegetarian options. I had to request a vegetarian option and it was a bit pricey for some basic roasted veggies.
Service from entry to departure was first class. There were a few birthday celebrations in progress and the server apologised in advance for noise levels.The meals for the four of us were all well presented and very tasty. A huge wine list, cocktail list and other beverage list were well appreciated.
Waitresses need more training. Lack of menu knowledge and not listening to the order. We enjoyed our meal. The draught coming from the windows was unpleasant.
Thankyou for a beautiful lunch, compliments to the chef and the lovely staff.
Nice restaurant, staff were attentive during the night, duck was a bit dry but the steak was cooked perfectly.
Went there for dinner, had wanted to go try berrets for some time.There was no lighting It was like eating in the dark. This restaurant compares no where to the likes of bells, the ocean, osterio amano.. i could go on. Lets just say i wont be back.. the mains and the service were good, the rest was not at the same level.
With our ACCOR membership the value for money is good. The menu is very limited and doesn't offer a lot of choices. Our entrees were very good (rating 8) but the main (we had a share beef) was tepid at best when it arrived. Greens were the same (mains rating 5). The wine we chose was out of stock and there are no fortifieds despite the "Port and Fort" section on the drinks list....it was all Port. The service we received on the night was exceptional. We decided not to return on night 2 mostly due to the limited menu.
Our new favourite restaurant. Impressive service, finest ingredients, chefs amazing. Made feel special. Thank you Barrett's Restaurant
Nice food probably 1 of only a handful decent restaurants in the area.
The Mothers Day high tea buffet was absolutely wonderful.
Food was pleasant but not outstanding. Drinks very expensive- paid $48 for a bottle of wine Friday night, $27 for the same wine at another restaurant the following night.
Great to be able to use 50% off dining benefit. The food was good. Waiters could have been more attentive. I tried to get their attention several times so that I could have more water. On the whole, a pleasant experience.
lovely food and service but the window frame which is exactly at eye level blocks the view of the golf course. We were constantly ducking our heads to look out under it. The high teas looked very nice too!
My wife and I now have a new favourite restaurant on the Central Coast. Innovative menu from inspired chefs.
The only disappointing thing is my requested entree to main size serve didn’t really appear to be a main. Very tasty however small in serve.
Great venue and food.
My wife and I dine here regularly and it always great.
