WE were recommended to this restaurant and arrived for lunch at 1.15 having tried to book by phone earlier with no success. The restaurant and grounds looked really inviting but certainly not busy. We went to the reception desk where a young lady seemed to be busy with paper work. After waiting for a few minutes, and a few coughs... More

Booked this restaurant via internet 25 days in advance and booking was confirmed, only to be told once we got there that they were booked for a private function and we couldn't have a table. He did say we could have a free bottle of wine on our next booking though for the inconvenience, we had already paid $42 for... More

Hmm, no online menu, will have to comment entirely from memory. Spontaneous lunch visit, we live in the general area. Had been meaning to try 1024 for some years but somehow had never taken that final step and turned into their driveway. Prompt attention at door. "Casual for two?", no problem. Pleasant light and airy setting, outdoor tables available but... More

We went for the chef's surprise lunch and every course was a delight. Dietary requirements were able to be accommodated easily. I would love to go back again.

Went in with Grab one voucher and would have been the best valued 3 course meal we have enjoyed for a long time. Service was great and we let more than satisfied with the whole experience.

Purchased a 69 dollar Grab one and hoped the gentleman who has served us on a previous visit would not be working the day we went for lunch. Unfortunately he was. An older gentleman who has a very rude demeanour . I asked what the tasting notes were on the merlot we were interested in drinking. He stated it was... More

We recently ate at ten twenty four on a grab one deal and were absolutely delighted with our three course chefs choice meal. The portion sizes were medium (not tiny as expensive) and after three courses we left feeling more than satisfied. The service was amazing, although drinks were a bit slow in coming.

This was a private function for nearly 30 people. Kent - Chef/owner was tasked with all the food choices for our meal. This was the best meal we have had in a very long time. Each course featured local available produce with amazing taste results plus the presentation was beautiful. Would also like to make special mention and thanks the... More
