We were entertaining friends over from Sydney and had a fantastic lunch experience. Really loved the brewery downstairs where we started off with a pre lunch drink and then went back down to relax in the arm chairs in front of the fire :-)

Tantalus came highly recommended - so I decided it would be a great spot to bring my brother and his wife (who were visiting from Australia) here for their 24th wedding anniversary. To say this was the best decision is an understatement. The wine/beer tasting on arrival set the standard for the exceptional friendly, professional service we experienced. The staff were all so friendly, egaging and knowledgeable. We had the pleasure of meeting Carrie - who made the non-wine drinker so happy with a tour of the brewery - and Brix. The food was exceptional - each dish was a work of art. This is somewhere - if we didn't have a ferry to catch - we would have happily spent the entire afternoon. We will definitely be back again soon! Thank you all for such a truly memorable afternoon.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating for half our group as they are vegan. Amazing atmosphere, will be going back. Food is a little on the pricey side but yummy.

Had a fantastic time shame about your taxi prices!! $40 each way maybe consider a pickup service even if you added $20 would be better

We had a fantastic lunch at Tantalus. From the very outset, we felt extremely well looked after by all the serving staff, and in particular our fabulous waiter. The menu was great and the food even better when it came. The timing of everything was perfect and the birthday cake made by the pastry chef was gorgeous to look at and to eat. A top class experience from beginning to end. Thanks Tantalus, you made my birthday super special!!
