My partner and I dined at the Hermitage last night and had a fantastic meal. The steak was cooked to absolute melt-in-your-mouth perfection. The wine recommended to match our meals was spot on. They even let us know when our show was about to start...More

Thought we'd give an old Canberra institution a go tonight, before attending a show. The reservation was cheerily taken this afternoon. The waiting staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgable. I had the Eye Fillet and my partner had the Lamb. Serving size was typical for...More

My lunch 'special' at Hermitage - wow - I've never been less inclined to eat anything in my life. The barramundi was slimy and overcooked. The beurre au blanc sauce had soaked the chips into soggy oblivion (chips - really - straight out of a...More

My fiance splurged on lunch for our 4yr anniversary recently, we got a garlic bread entree and then both ordered the 'hermitage special' at $42 each... The bread was the best part of our meal. The hermitage special came with a half lobster, fillet steak...More

We went for a relaxed dinner. We were rushed out of there by 8:30 (arrived at 7:00). It would have been 8 but we made them slow down. It seemed as if we were keeping them up yet when we booked I had made it...More
