Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

7 course tasting , only one out of 7 had no faults ,appetiser one out of three was nice , the mains first one trout , no trout they took it back to the kitchen and returned it back to me , I had four large bones in my trout , when I mentioned it no apology nothing , mistakes happen but four !!!! Next course pork belly which was so undercooked it was rubbery and very very chewy, definitely no crackle or crunch just a massive choking hazard all the way through the pork belly , next course barramundi , which was so overcooked it was chalky and dry unpleasant, Junee lamb next course was lovely shame the jus was a coloured water with no flavour , next course was Angus striploin very tough and overcooked the braised shallots on this dish were completely raw not even warm just raw yuck , the two desserts were so disappointing in a big way , the pavlova was a teaspoon if that and it was like egg white with sugar put in a syphon gun and not even torched no crunchy bits just egg foam with half a raspberry three tiny dots of passionfruut gel and 3 tiny dots of blueberry foam with no flavour , the icecream with it tasted fine but was melted ,the other dessert vanilla Panna cotta was so hard and rubbery , the strawberry coulis was a set flavourless hard layer on top and no hazelnut praline in sight , all we can say is never again and we would never suggest to anyone to go there , all the meals needed seasoning as well and I personally do not use much of either , we had a couple travelling through on there way to Melbourne and decided to eat there , they asked us outside about our meal and our thoughts were exactly the same as there's, the lady actually asked were is the pavlova and the gentleman couldn't eat his pork belly , we needed more food and they were on the hunt for something else to eat as well , a huge disappointment.

Attended this restaurant (again) recently with extended family for our wedding anniversary. I believe everyone enjoyed the food, service and the atmosphere. Only minor spoiler was the absolute rip-off for bottled water. On arrival we were offered ‘still’ or ‘sparkling’ water … tap-water was ‘strategically’ omitted from the offering. Hence, many of us who ordered the still water, assuming that was the tap-water offering, got quite a rude surprise when the bill arrived with something like $50 worth of the ‘still’ water on it. Will be back for the food, but won’t get caught with that one again … BEWARE!

I was really looking forward to visiting this restaurant based on the reviews. The menu looked lovely and we opted for the 5 course set menu. The food was underwhelming. Lots of fancy touches but the basics were not great. The chefs starter was three pieces of fried things that you couldn't really tell what was in them. Stodgy and unimaginative. The gnocchi flavour was good but the actual gnocchi was not light and fluffy. The fish dish overcooked with cold pumpkin puree. The highlight of the meal was the desert. The staff were lovely and very attentive. I would not go again.

A disappointing experience at the Charles, food was poorly cooked and lacking flavour. The service was ok and the vibe of the restaurant was good. The overall experience was not great, our friends who are local were deeply disappointed and wished they booked elsewhere.

Not quite good enough for a restaurant that is supposed to be one of the best in town. We were told that we could only have the tasting menu - no choice at all and no notification. Not sure if they were running out of food or ? The restaurant was packed and noisy and we went home hungry

The meals were so good that I highly recommend the 7 course menu. It gave us a chance to try everything on the menu. The lamb was melt in your mouth flavoursome delight. The pork and the fish were also terrific. But the lamb was my favourite. The staff were so accommodating and helped with every detail. Making us feel like royalty. Overall a wonderful experience. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

This is trying to be a “Fine” dinning experience but fails on all levels. The food was dry, bland, under cooked, no seasoning, and a bone left on n my entree, when I brought this to the waitress attention, there was a care free attitude of zero. Please see picture below. Lack lustre experience one which want be repeated.

Right from the moment we stepped into the restaurant, we were taken on a wonderful dining experience. The service was exemplary, the food simply divine. It was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. Well done to staff and management, you delivered the best value for money!

Advertised as a fine dining experience the quality of the food was below average. Underseasoned meals with poor execution. The largest meal was a bowl of seasonal veggies, which consisted of undercooked carrot, zuccini and broccoli. I don't mind having small meals. However, they need to pack a punch when it comes to flavor. Main meals were cold and the brisket that accompanied the beef was dry. The meals left us dissatisfied and wanting more. Cannot fault the service, good atmosphere and great cocktails

We had the 7 course degustation menu and each dish was faultless. Fantastic service, food was prompt and we left very satisfied.

The staff are pleasant and well informed on the beverages and food they are providing. Very helpful when we were trying to make our menu choice. The food was delicious we had the five course. The interior of the restaurant is modern and light. The windows at the front add to the atmosphere. The facilities were spotless and well maintained. It is a credit to Jamie and all his staff.

I took my Ex here to celebrate her birthday, it's safe to say we loved it! The food, service, and feng shui were amazing. it was both of our first times having a 5-course dinner and the Charles did not disappoint. All of the servers were lovely and we felt really welcomed. I tip my hat off to you guys.
