The new menu is delicious including the pumpkin gnocchi but the old menu and its enter of prawns and barramundi main is definitely missed. Service and atmosphere was amazing as always.

Facing the golf course so has good views. Mains to share are generous portions. Starters are creatively prepared and presented. Thoughtful service. Have been here before (also at lunch time) and will be back whenever in the area.

I have marked the friend recommendation and service very low because we have dined at Barrett's Restaurant on a number of occasions and always found the food exceptional but the service sadly lacking. On Sunday we dined with 2 friends for lunch. Again we were let down by the poor service. The four of us were settled at a table for six but the additional table settings were not removed which, later when I asked for water refills, caused confusion with the additional glasses. We ordered a bottle of wine from the young waiter and he also took our entrée order. He returned with the wine and ice bucket but never served the wine nor did he return at any time to check on our wine or refill water glasses. Our entrees were served by a waitress and as no mention was made of taking main meal orders, I highlighted this with her and she subsequently took our orders. Our main meals duly arrived and the presentation and the quality of the meal, as always, was superb. The chef should be congratulated. It is such a shame that the meal was let down by the poor service.

Had dinner for our anniversary last Saturday during the storm. Power went out which meant it was a forced candlelit dinner. Staff did an amazing job given the circumstances and wish we could have waited around for dessert.

The only constructive criticism we would make is that the choices of mains was quite limited .

Service was great. Entrees and mains were amazing as usual. Side dish of “roasted” potatoes were actually deep fried. Not what we ordered nor what was on the menu. My last meal there, the potatoes were definitely roasted. Not sure why the chef made a shortcut this night. But it certainly should have been communicated to us especially with guests choosing to be on a lower fat diet. I’m looking forward to my next stay there next weekend Sunday 16th September and looking forward to quality food again.

Hello, thank you for having us dine with you last weekend for my husbands 40th birthday. Unfortunately, we were not overly impressed with the meals which were served to our large table of 12. Most of the meals were dry, including the prawns and duck and not of great quality or flavor. We did however have good comments on the beef. The cheese plate was two large lumps of cheese thrown on a plate not the quality at all that was shown in photos on your website. The service was average. Meals were given to the wrong people and we had to ask multiple times for the drinks and wine we ordered. Overall it was overpriced for what we got and not of the standard that should come with the price tag.

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.

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!

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.
