We were greeted with a glass of bubbly each, a rose and chocolates. The meal was one of the best we've had in a long time. The service was smooth and discrete and we were... More

Dinner while it was still daylight (daylight saving!) in a beautiful room, hushed and yet not oppressively so, with a beautiful outlook to the terrace and garden beyond - what a great evening. I give it full marks for atmosphere and ambience. This was assisted by the wonderful staff, who were attentive but not overwhelming or 'false'. The complimentary amuse... More

A Seafood chowder that has set the bar high for the following eye fillet and it did not disappoint. Cooked to perfection. Thanks to a top quality Tassie beef and served with superb professional and fun staff

I recently attended a dinner function at Bruni's restaurant. I have dined here before and I was not disappointed at this event. The venue remains refined with a touch of glamour and the staff were welcoming and friendly. It is the food that continues to star at Bruni's. Our entire meal was delicious from petite caramelised onion tartlets to quail... More

Villa Howden presented a wonderful and creative menu for a private function. The room was extremely well presented and beautifully prepared. Accolades to the chef and the wait staff. Food was wonderful and all people were served consistent meals in a very short time frame from a slick kitchen.

See my review of Villa Howden (I spoke about the meals at this restaurant) but the service was 5 star and the food 5+ stars! So much flavour, and unlike being at many other restaurants, there is usually an appetiser or something you don't like - not here! Everything I tried was unbelievable! Be sure to leave room for dessert!

We totally enjoyed our dinner at Bruni's (inside Villa Howden). Staff were excellent and friendly and helpful! The risotto and the chicken breast were well prepared and delicious. Wine selections were also local and excellent.
