Decent place to go for a group. Adequate amount of seating and you go up to the counter to order so there's no issues splitting bills and stuff. Customer service was nice. Nothing amazing but no complaints at all, all the staff seemed friendly! The food however is below average. Do not come here if you're looking to impress. Every single person in our group of 13 left food on their plate and one person took their entree home in a napkin to give their dog.

It's not horrendous but it is stunningly average low class pub food. Chips tasted stale and floppy like they had been reheated in a microwave.

Would prefer this venue for some after work drinks. Nice decor and casual friendly vibe. Need serious work on their menu or their cooking :)

We ate at the Carindale Hotel on a Monday night and both chose the Chicken Schnitzel. It was the Monday night special for $14.95 and came with salad and chips. The schnitzel was really large and the gravy provided in a little jug was just what it needed as it was a bit dry. For the money it was very good value. However, the staff let the place down and there is absolutely no atmosphere which is why it is getting a 3 rating.

We were sooooo disappointed with both the service and he food. Pulled pork pizza tasted awful, chicken chniztel was dry and nothing on the plate for the price you pay. Not very good value for money and the staff absolutely couldnt give a hoot we were even there. Their menu has this massive front page on it that says 'if we dont ask you for garlic bread you get one free' ...... get over it! Maybe have a sign that says bring your table number to the counter or your waitress will groan and sigh about you not knowing it then moan to the waitress next to her saying loudly so everyone can hear 'is it that difficult to know your table number?!'

Carindale Hotel maybe spend more time in customer service and educate your customers on your procedures and scrub up on the quality and content of your meals as its definitely waaaaaay to over priced. I get better food in the $10 line at Carina. You only got an extra star because yor espresso martini spftened the blow.

Never coming back.

It was 8.30 before we ordered on a Wednesday night but I did make a reservation and we were made to feel like we were putting them out.
We weren't the only late dinners as a couple of tables were still waiting for their meals when we got there.
Food was very ordinary nothing exciting I'd go back for.
