Enjoyed a light lunch - Prosecco all round. Sourdough topped with goats cheese, garlic oil and hazelnuts... Yumm. Grilled prawns were just right with a little chilli, watermelon & mint - perfect. Other dish was lamb wraps - two small wraps filled with delicious lamb.

Have been here several times now and they continue to do well. Friendly, prompt and efficient service. Good coffee and tasty food. Nice views too if you can score a table outside.

On Sunday I went here with a friend from Sydney. We were both very impressed by the food and the friendly service. To start with we had a selection of olives from the Hunter Valley. For mains, I had a roasted beetroot, walnut and baked ricotta salad and my friend had soft pulled lamb tacos. Both of us wanted a... More

I had lunch here yesterday with my partner and five year old daughter. We were a bit apprehensive about going into a nice looking restaurant as we were wearing our bike clothes, having just ridden to Belmont from Newcastle along the Fernleigh track. We were glad we did. It was lovely and cool out on the deck, the food was... More

Its best to drink before you go. Took our small group 30min before we were offered a drink. We weren't even shown the specials. We only saw there was a specials menu as we left. The food we received was good and deserts were great. It is only a small area so you can't here yourself think, let alone hold... More

Had a lovely light lunch here and was surprised by the food on offer. We shared a charcuterie plate and the spiced calamari - both of which were really nice. I'm not really a fan of the current food trend in pickling/fermenting vegetables etc so I left these components to my partner to enjoy.

Went to Deck 56 for 30th wedding anniversary on a Tuesday night and found a seat without even booking. The wait staff were great showing us the not too extensive menu . the food some of the best we have had in the Lake area. We will be back again.
