Went there for lunch after hearing my friends raving about it. Food looks good but taste is nothing spectacular. I still don't get it why the chicken fettuccine have vegetables in it but it was good just have to remove the veggies. The prices of food made me scratch my head. It's so overpriced. If you are on a budget... More

Took a reasonable size party to Cabbage Tree for work do. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I loved my whitebait fritters, lots of whitebait in them.

Had a work meeting here and the menu is the same for lunch as dinner so prices for lunch become quite expensive. I had a salad and was not very excited by the presentation. The menu is so big and I had Gordon Ramsey on the back of my head. How can a menu this large all be fresh ?... More

Stopped into the cabbage tree to enjoy the sun in their garden. Unfortunately, management had nowhere enough staff on for the day and drinks, food and dirty plates took an age to be sorted. The food was ok and there was lots of it, but not to the calibre of its mid to late thirties price tag. With the menu... More

We came here for a family dinner and although we arrived early the staff were happy to accommodate us. The menu is very large which made it difficult to make a choice. Although we were the only table in the restaurant, staff were slow to take our order. However when they did so they were wonderful and very accommodating. The... More

Extensive menu, probably in reality too many choices. Main meals are on the pricey side although for lunch type items they are reasonable. Portions are generally very generous so entree, main and dessert would be beyond most diners. Entrees and dessert could be shared. Desserts are very well presented and substantial. Very good range of wines and beers. Seems very... More

Prices did not reflect the quality of our meals. Both our meals were very basic. Probably bought from the frozen section of a supermarket!!! Would rather less to choose from and have local fresh or frozen products. Staff were friendly and obliging. Will not be back.
