Overall food was really good except the broccoli wasn’t really grilled and garlic wasn’t fresh garlic. Meat was cooked perfectly and presentation was great. Will definitely be back :)

Overall an A+ experience. The only minor issue was that the brocoli was described as chargrilled, but was very clearly not chargrilled at all - when this was suggested to the waiter, he then spoke to the chef who said that it was cooked in a pan and therefore chargrilled, despite this obviously not being the case. Was a strange little thing to put just an ever so minor downer on an otherwise excellent meal.

First time at this restaurant. The service was excellent. The food was very yummy and tasty. Food presentation was great. Using our Accor Plus makes the dinner a real value for money experience.

Was very disappointing, it took along time to get served when we arrived and even longer to get our drinks. We only had dessert and was very disappointed. I had the rocky road ball and besides a very small amount of crumble it was sitting on that was it!! Have had it before and definitely got more crumble and fruit. The pictures on fb shows this dessert and it was not what we got. There was no fruit and only two tiny little marshmellows not the big ones shown on the fb page. For $18 it was a rip off. Wont be back in a hurry!

Disappointed with my main meal Thought I was getting bacon wrapped around my steak all I got was this tiny bit of bacon around my steak didn’t look like bacon looked like fat On the menu it sounded nice but what I got wasn’t what I had expected and when I asked the waitress is this the bacon she said yes !!

The bottomless lunch was amazing! Food was delicious, we had the beef burger, the fish and the risotto - all beautifully presented. The sorbet was so good that we had trouble picking a favourite flavour. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and was very attentive, she made sure we never saw the bottom of our glasses! I thought this would be a try once event but the lunch was an experience to be enjoyed and shared, we will definitely be going back again.

Great lunch with First Table. Having popped in prior to our booking to discuss dietary requirements i had confidence on the day to enjoy my meal. Luke our waiter was awesome. Really polite, helpful and attentive without being over the top. Generous servings which we couldn't fault.

You need some blinds to stop sun striker immediately.No one could see while sun was setting, very uncomfortable & it really ruined the whole night... which was a special night for our family. When we mentioned this to the staff they couldn’t do anything about it...

Arrived and greeted nicely but after getting drinks and seated into lounge, chairs were dirty with crumbs and flies were a real nuisance. Came to dinner, the staff had bad breath and the sun was really bad to the point of not being able to see the food or my partner. Was not the only people with the issue. Other than that was a nice time had.

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.
