Attended for a breakfast with a work colleague. Located in the historic and beautiful Hotel Kurrajong, the experience was disappointing. The restaurant had plenty of dinners but not packed, yet the wait to be served, even acknowledged by the staff, was long. No water on...More

After 2 years back to this place. More welcoming with overlooking to history. I had a very well cooked steak with great service on a Monday night. Compliments to the chef and restaurant team, couldn't ask for more.

Breakfast had all the usual pieces but they kept running out of things and slow to replanish (small portion display). Otherwise good flavourful food. Dinner is a la carte and the steak I had was superb - medium rare, good size, juicy. very well done....More

The steaks that my son, husband and I had were all delicious. The potatoes roasted in duck fat were excellent. Some more choice in the sides - with a wider selection of vegetables (eg mixed greens or salad leaves) would have been good. Great for...More
