This is my second visit to Glasshouse but my first for day time views! The service from check in to the meal and departure were all excellent. Our coffee order was promptly taken and delivered with our midmorning breakfast to follow. All plates were beautifully...presented and tasted divine. I highly recommend a visit to Goonoo Goonoo Station for breakfast, lunch or dinner just insure you are not in a rush to enjoy the stunning surroundings!More

Wife and I are annual visitors over the last 4 years to the restaurant and accommodation if it wasn't good we wouldn't return. This visit again exceptional. Dinner experience over two nights opted for mains and sweets. I prefer my eye fillet to be charred...grilled but enjoyed the dish in any case, the charred broccoli as a side scrumptious, second night we had the trevalla again with the broccoli as a side, the meal was superb the flavours excellent, we really enjoyed this meal. Sweets also very special and innovative. Wine list very good and prices you would expect. Our second night we walked up from the Shearers Quarters a storm looming we should have driven although with trusty Goonoo umbrella supplied in room we chanced it. It rained while we were having dinner, time to leave the restaurant still raining someone had lifted our umbrella. Emma to the rescue insisting to drive us back to the accommodation in her own car. That type of service is exceptional and well appreciated. All the staff we found excellent, management should be congratulated on how the restaurant operates. Will we have a 5th visit next year we certainly hope so.More

We stayed, unfortunately, only one night in the Shearer's Quarters and had dinner and breakfast the following morning at the Glasshouse Restaurant. The restaurant has been built on top of a hill in between the old Woolstore (which has been totally renovated and appears now...to be a large function room) and the old disused shearing sheds. As the name would suggest the restaurant has very large floor to ceiling glass windows that afford great views over the surrounding countryside. It was about a 7/10 minute uphill walk from the Shearer's Quarters to get to the restaurant. We were required to book both for dinner and breakfast. The dinner menu was not large with a choice from five entrees, four mains, three sides and four desserts though there were seafood and vegetarian options included in each of the first two courses. As entrees we had the lemon myrtle confit salmon and the octopus and mussel escabeche. For mains we both ordered the 200g eye fillet with cauliflower puree and baby vegetables with a side of baby potato salad. All of these dishes when plated looked appetising and didn't disappoint. The beef was cooked perfectly to order. For dessert we shared a Native Davidson plum and salted caramel bombe Alaska - delicious! We thought that most of the dishes were reasonably priced given where we were. Wine list again was not overly extensive and there were a number of good options at what appeared to be good restaurant price points. The menu for breakfast had six main choices included bacon and eggs, corn fritters, house made granola, walnut and raisin toast, house smoked salmon and smashed avocado plus a list of additions that you could have ordered to go with these meals. There was also a children's menu. We had the house smoked salmon, corn fritters, a jug of sparkling water, two fresh orange juices and two coffees and the bill was only $62 which we thought was comparable to most Sydney cafes. Staff on both occasions were very friendly and efficient. Would absolutely dine here again even if we did not have overnight accommodation at the property.More

We had a window seat which was lovely, there is an extensive wine selection. The mains menu was limited due possibly to the covid virus but what we we chose which was all we ate, were very nicely presented and tasty. I highly recommend this...restaurant, the staff were perfect, the views great, the building is very unusual and I really couldn't find any fault with anything at all. It topped off a great stay at Goonoo Goonoo Station.More

Stay at the station and breakfast for two mornings. These were lovely. Disappointed with dinner, the vegetables on the steak dish was cold. The Trevalla was ordinary, nothing special. Commented on cold vegetables to wait staff. She was most helpful and provided a discount on...the dish. Must mentioned all the staff were wonderful, with smiles on their faces, helpful all the time Recommend heat lamp be installed in kitchen to keep dishes warmMore
