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.

We booked this restaurant in our motel on the basis of the great reviews here - and it did not disappoint! We had the salmon and the barramundi and both were excellent, but it was the accompanying vegetables which were the revelation! Full of surprising...flavours, perfectly cooked and an absolute delight to eat! The chef deserves high praise and the staff were lovelyMore

Terrific dining experience in Dubbo! Great venue. Wonderful service! Excellent menu. Great variety. Excellent wine list to match with food. The children’s menu is terrific. Dessert for adults and children were amazing!

Shown to table soon after arriving, water to table and not long before orders for predinner drinks taken. Meal orders taken in good time, and meals to table not long after. Spacing between entrée and main meals was good.

We went out for a birthday dinner & some aspects were good & others poor. Starting with the negatives Alcohol drinks took a long time to arrive at the table (approximately 20mins) The “reflections” cocktail tasted like a lemon squash & served in a beer...glass. After selecting our dishes & the waitress was taking our order did she inform us that a few of the dishes were not available. Blamed supermarket shortages They could have removed them from the menu as it’s photo copy paper. My Scotch fillet steak (surf & turf)was char grilled which is fine but tasted burnt. Also only 2 overcooked prawns. Pork belly dish was average & soft skin, not crackling. Lamb rack tasted great but looked anaemic. Only one waitress initially so it was difficult for her to get everything out & look after customers as well as could be expected (not her fault & she did a great job anyway) The positives. Everyone (7 of us) enjoyed the entrees which were plentiful & tasty It’s a nice atmosphere All the meals are a generous serving.More

Very disappointing … entrees 2 spring rolls and 4 dumplings, duck in spring rolls tasted like bland mush, dumplings chewy and soy was the only flavour. Wine came after starters and told to shout out if we wanted our wine pouring. Chilli prawns…covered in sweet...chilli sauce from bottle, no salad left (we were the 6pm booking), veggies instead…Indian spices potatoes, maple syrup carrots and burnt snow peas, frozen sweet potato fries. Scallops were tiny over cooked and had no seasoning. Purées grainy and again not seasoned. The only thing good was the wine we poured for ourselves. Mentioned scallops over cooked told no negative feedback and then were ignored. $120 later (obviously no gratuity for sending food back) feel pretty stung. Avoid. Feel sorry for the previous owners…hope they don’t come and eat here.More

My wife booked Reflections for my birthday dinner whilst we were road tripping around Oz. The meal was excellent, including a very nice affogato for desert. My birthday is between Christmas and New Year and we found that many of the restaurants in Dubbo shut...over this period. So we were very happy to find this one and recommend a meal here when in Dubbo.More

We are doing a roadie & decided to visit Dubbo and the Zoo. What a great experience the meal & the service at this restaurant which you could rate as 5 star dining. The wine & menu with great choices to decide on albeit a...difficult decision to choose. Well done chef and team.More

Great atmosphere as you enter the Bar area. Friendly staff, shown to table in the restaurant which also had a friendly vibe. Tables well spaced and staff Covid19 aware wiping down after guests leave. We shared the bruschetta, lovely balsamic drizzle over bite sized serves....I had Duck Maryland & my wife the Pork Belly, both dishes were very good. Shared the Chocolate Ganache, death by chocolate. Would be a challenge to eat by yourself. A great dessert. This motel restaurant punches above its weight. Would thoroughly recommend & would definitely come back again. Well done to the kitchen and front of house.More

We dined here tonight after searching TripAdvisor for a nice restaurant. We were a little dubious about going to a Motel for dinner, but Wow... Amazing food, seriously so nice and flavoursome and really well thought out. Our compliments to the Chef and his team,...a wonderful menu and incredibly, well priced. Wine list was good too, and the Grenache was a perfect match for our Scallops, Duck, Steak and Lamb. Thank you for a wonderful experience in a quirky town!More

The food was perfect. The staff were friendly yet professional. The whole experience was perfect. One of the things that we really noted, and appreciated, was that as we were being seated they didn’t ask us if we wanted a drink before we even took...our seats. They said once we were settled they would be back to take our drink or order. A large majority of other restaurants could take a leaf out of their book.More

This restaurant should not be missed. The food is outstanding. It’s located in a three star hotel but it’s a five star restaurant. For the entree a must are the lamb fried dumplings, very delicious. The main I had was the barramundi fillet with coriander...rice, greens & a tasty native spiced broth. Could not resist dessert of sticky date pudding with honeycomb, mascarpone & salted whisky caramel sauce. There are other wonderful dishes on offer and it’s important to book. With COVID service is quite rapid. But take time to enjoy the food. This place is a gem.More

Reflections was recommended by a local. Four of us Stayed two nights at the Quality Inn Dubbo and decided we would eat in the first night and check out another restaurant in town the other. However, the food was so good the first night we...had to back up for the second. Lamb dumplings were sensational, prawn spring rolls also great, salmon as good as we’ve had anywhere , duck rated top class by a duck expert and my fillet steak just a superb lump of meat perfectly cooked medium rare. Not sure you can get better food that this anywhere!More
