I always try to avoid hotel restaurants but more and more these days they are a wonderful revelation. Exactly what happened here - had a main of lamb sumac salad followed by creme brûlée - amazing flavours, great portion size. Excellent staff, great business lunch experience, will definitely be back

Been here at least five times over the years and it has never disappointed. Great meals all round, great service. A little pricey and parking is difficult but it is worth it. Not too noisy, don't get moved on for the second setting, nice ambience. Knowledgable experienced waiters too! Classy.

Dinner for two: Friday 03rd of February, 2017 around 7:30pm. ARRIVE & SERVICE: waited for a while before anyone noticed we were there. We actually had to grab someone's attention even though two waiters walked past us (remember that it is part of the Royce Hotel, a 5 star hotel). Were seated and we had to remind them to give...

As I was staying at the Royce I thought I'd try the restaurant the first night there. The menu was interesting and I settled on the herb crusted lamb loin with baby vegetables. Everything was cooked to perfection, and the lamb was incredibly tender. Unfortunately it was spoiled by the herb crust which was incredibly bitter, so I had to... More

I've stayed in the Hotel for almost half a year but I still don't get tired of the excellent food. The spaghettini with seafood and the lamb are a must. They have a very good selections of wines and you can rely on their recommendations. Brett and his team are fantastic and we always have a good time with them.... More

Had both dinner and breakfast here. Food and service were both very average. Decor is tired and in need of a makeover

The restaurant is ok. I would not rush back. I ate twice. I had minestrone which was nice and fresh but not outstanding. Pellegrinis in Bourke st also has excellent minestrone. There are no daily specials. The wine list by the glass is not exhaustive. The breakfast is ok but nothing special. The spaghetti is ok but again not outstanding.... More
