At first look, the menu looks pricey. But the portion sizes and taste prove that you pay for quality. The pumpkin soup was delicious. The patio is beautiful and makes for a relaxing environment.

After our guided tour of the gardens, we were looking forward to ma snack in the café. My first two selections were not available so just opted for a coke and lemonade. Both were served cold. ENOUGH SAID.

Not particularly busy at 10.30 and seemed to be enough staff. Just ordered 2 coffee and milkshake which took ages. Other people's brunch looked ok.

I didn't think the restaurant was as bad as others are making it out to be. It's a small cafe, though I'm noticing a trend of them running out of items. While we were there they ran out of scones.

Had a great lunch in this restaurant among the plants and trees of this park. The barramundi and salad was fantastic especially with a glass of wine. I topped it of with a nice Spicy Apple with Vanilla and Ice Cream.
