Good music being played. Food was lovely but had to wait quite a long time I thought. Waitress did approach us and apologise about the time it was taking. Quite expensive for a dinner out.

I was surprised that several menu items were not available early in the evening but managed to find acceptable alternatives which we enjoyed

A previous phone call, on Saturday morning, was very unpleasant when I was discussing a gift voucher that was expired by 10 days. This was for $100 and a genuine over sight on my part. The young lady I spoke with in the Eatery was very unhelpful and unwilling to allow me to use it. When I asked to speak to someone else she put me through to the front desk. The young man I spoke with was fantastic as was the young lady that greeted us on our visit. These two professionals are a credit to your business, and the young indian lady in the restaurant could learn a lot from them. Customer service is highly regarded and I imagine you value your customers more than she does.

To only have 3 items available out of 7 on the main menu (as stock hasn't turned up??) is a bit inadequate for a hotel that is supposed to have a four star rating. The food that did come out was very nice. To not be able to speak with the manager as they are really 'busy' tonight in the kitchen is also not a reason to speak with the Manager and the restaurant wasn't even full.... Finally when paying my bill I noticed one of the chefs in the kitchen cooking was slapping the kitchen tongs in the palm of his hand and then flippping what was ever in the dish - that is extremely unhygeneic.. yuk Wont' be going back there anytime soon.

There was a stuff up with online reservation then after waiting 40 minutes for a table- turns out they had forgotten about us, then our drinks were forgotten, out waiter then dropped one of the drinks over the floor and then 3 of the main meals were sold out- worst service I have ever received. Only saving grace was the food

We had to ask to order our drinks after being seated. The lamb dish was not up to previous standard as far as flavour goes.
