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.

Had the Guiness pie of which I have tried a few and this was one of the better ones. Service was fast - only waited about 5 or 6 minues. Price was quite reasonable too (about $19). No salt or pepper on the table in...these Covid times.More

My group of 7 all enjoyed their meals. We selected from the "specials" We had steak, silverside x 2, pizza, brisket x 2 and lamb. Everyone said their food was great. I would have liked a few more chips with my steak. Not that there...wasnt enough - they were just very yummy.More

Regular diners at Plantations as it is our closest hotel with a restaurant. Can often be a long wait for meals. There excuse is always that they have to service the Char'd Restaurant also. Well maybe do something about that. The food is generally ok....The meal deals are good value if you're looking for an ok meal under $20. It includes a drink. The most annoying thing about this place is that they never have any available to serve at the bar section. A few times now we haven't bothered waiting to get a second drink as there was no one to serve. They are only doing themselves out of income. Also didn't bother ordering dessert as there was a long queue at the ordering counter.More

I have eaten here before several times and been reasonably satisfied, sometimes the food has been very good, sometimes very bad. The long Lunch does seem to offer value, so we take a punt now and then. However tonight was very disappointing. I had 200gm...steak, chips and salad for main. The steak was very chewy and gristly. The so-called salad was mainly pea shoots with a small lettuce leaf, a tiny bit of tomato and 2 onion rings. As I said, 90% pea shoots. Perhaps this is the chef's favourite. But it ain't mine. Can't stand pea shoots, or bean sprouts. Usually push them aside, as they are usually in SMALL QUANTITY as a garnish, not the WHOLE DISH. And buggerall dressing. My wife had same with vegetables. The vegetables had no taste and were very under cooked. Overall, after many visits over the last few years, I have decided the steaks are just too inconsistent in quality and not worth the money. You never know if the steak is going to be tender or tough. And service, while improved lately still is lacking. Especially if you want a drink at the bar. Always a long wait for service. I thought pubs specialise in at least serving beer quickly.More

Once again this place didn't disappoint, 4 of us had lunch here on a Sunday. The food was awesome and all of us throughly enjoyed our meals. We all shared the salt n pepper calamari for entree . I had the ribs n wings for...main which could have easily been shared with another diner however I took the left overs home and it was dinner for me on Monday night.More

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining at Plantations Restaurant, a part of the Prince Alfred Hotel Booval. As always, we found both the food and the service to be first rate, and the staff to be friendly and attentive. We would consider...Plantations to be our favorite restaurant in the Ipswich area.More

This restaurant and hotel are amazing. We went for lunch and it was a real experience. The atmosphere was attractive, the staff really welcoming, the food 'wow' so tasty, and the layout was roomy. i would recommend this hotel to everyone. It was the experience...of an upmarket restaurant with the warm homely feeling of a nice Aussie pub. I left this hotel very satisfied with the food and so impressed the way my steak melted in my mouth as i requested it would. A special thanks to Susan, Chantelle, Josh and of course our chef Sebastian. You all combine beautifully as a team to make our families special occasion even more special.More

We booked a table on Friday night for dinner at Plantations Restaurant the other end to Chard Restaurant. Both sides were very busy and we were told on arrival to order asap to avoid waiting too long for meals. We ordered quickly and grabbed a...few drinks. We noticed the other tables that ordered after us had received their meals and with a question to order staff found out they didn’t send our meals to the Kitchen. The staff quickly brought out a few rounds of garlic bread and offered free coffees for the mistake. Our meals arrived 10 mins later. The steaks, chicken parmigiana and chicken and leek pies were great. The pizzas were devoured especially since we waited about an hour for our meals. 4/5 for meals, 4/5 for friendly staff, 5/5 for offering free entree’s and drinks and 0/5 for not sending our order to the Kitchen. Honest mistake, and we will be back.More

Nothing to rave about - food ok but not cheap for what you get. Think the menu choice has been reduced.

The food was typical tavern style. There was an excessive wait for main meals and missing orders requiring a return trip to the counter to sort out. Steaks requested to be medium came out well done and with sauce different to order. Service in this...regard was poor. Moving past the restaurant and poor service. The best part of the PA Hotel would be the Tap'd bar with 72 craft beers and ciders on tap.More
