After being away for a week, this was a lovely dinner to take my partner to. It is an attractive and traditional restaurant that has always provided great service and great food. As expected the evening went perfectly and I couldn't have been happier with either the service or the food choice and quality.

Great food and service as always. I do think the fixtures and fittings are starting to show their age but it doesn't yet detract from the experience.

We were drawn in by the beautiful look of the restaurant and the Winter Festival menu advertised. The restaurant had a great feel and ambience and the staff were very welcoming. Our waitress in particular was so warm and friendly, really professional and very knowledgeable on the food. We had the Winter Festival Feed Me degustation menu option and it was amazing! Pure deliciousness! The food was fresh, elegant, well balanced and highlighted local produce. It was well priced for quality and service. The wine list was extensive and had a lot of local options. I would only recommend allowing at least two hours rather than the suggested 90 minutes to enjoy this incredible experience as we almost ran out of time having to get back to our babysitter. All in all, a very memorable dining experience.

I chose to dine at The Playford because of the decor - beautiful Art Nouveau. The food was good. The waitress tried hard and is on the way to being excellent as she gains experience. It was quite expensive but at about the prices I would have expected. The wine list was extensive - I was disappointed that you would have "Adventurous" sections for red and white but only offer them by the bottle. Adventurous varietals should be available by the glass. A little bit more choice for vegetarians (like me) would also be nice but at least the main wasn't the standard risotto for a change.

Enjoyed the experience of eating here on my wifes 33rd birthday. I found the staff to be enthusiastic and wanting to please. The medium rare wagu beef was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. The dessert menu had a good selection and the wine menu was vast. The decor in the restaurant is feeling a little tired, but still presents well.

Great service and food. Only critics that we ordered an expensive glass of champagne as a predinner drink for our anniversary and it didn’t come until after our first course which had wine matches.

Food was absolutely delicious. Couldn’t fault anything. Our waiter was very friendly and courteous. I have eaten here a few times over the years and the standard has always been great.

Everything was delicious from start to finish. I think $25 corkage on wine is a little pricey. Service was great. Atmosphere good, except lights a little too bright and I didn’t like how my table was below another table on the ledge above, my head was too close to the other diners feet. Also, in my booking I mentioned if was my friends birthday and if something special could be done with dessert, at candle or something, but nothing was done. :(

The 18 hour slow cooked Pork as part of the Gluten Free menu was just awesome. They cater to my needs. Such friendly helpful staff and love the ambience of the Hotel. It is one of our favourite places.
