A lovely open area for dining, the high quality presentation and choices available for breakfast buffet caters for all dietary needs. The staff are professional and friendly, very happy to assist and make the start to the day a pleasant one. Buffet Breakfast represents excellent value for money.

We dined here for dinner and found the setting to be very pleasing. The menu had enough choices for even the most picky guest. The wine list covered all the main varieties at most price points. The food was very well prepared and presented and every dish was delicious. Wine by the glass was readily available. The staff managed to... More

I ate here for three nights in a row and was not disappointed with the food. Beautifully presented, good portion size and very tasty. I did not take photos of my food (sorry) I just wanted to eat it! Each meal was fantastic from Salmon to duck and finally mushroom lasagna. Side vegetables chosen included green bean salad (perfect and... More

We had 2 night stay at out hotel. First night thought we would have a really good meal ready for the next day. We both had steak (2 different types) and was full. Well cooked. Waitress looked after us very well as it was not busy. Next night room service as I really did not expect so much food for... More

We stayed at the Parkview for a weekend, a regular place we stay when in the southern capital. I was disappointed on this trip with Woods. On Friday evening, I dined with a party of six adults. The meals and drinks were expensive and the servings of the mains were small. Despite the staff coming and taking drinks order regularly,... More

During our stay in Melbourne we dined here five time. The staff are attentive and professional, The atmosphere family friendly, the food world class, what more could you want. One of the few establishments with properly trained bar staff, who know how to serve Cognac and they would never put ice in cider. They all deserve a bonus.

The kids meals were huge, except for the pasta which is presented in a trendy huge bowl, but not a huge serving. The kids cheeseburger is the size of a kids head though so be prepared to go halves ;-) Steak was perfect as was the port belly from all reports. Staff are excellent!

We ate here as we were staying at the Parkview Hotel (which was excellent by the way). Unfortunately the food was poor - I had the barramundi which was very ordinary, my daughter had the butter chicken which tasted nothing like it should and my husband had a steak (which he said was good). The service was good, but sadly... More

I recently stayed at the Parkview Hotel overnight with my daughter and granddaughter. As usual the breakfast at Woods Cafe was beautiful. There is a great selection of hot and cold foods and the staff are always very attentive and ready to help if you need it. We look forward to our next visit in August.
