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 had three courses here and each of them was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Recommend a visit anytime you are in the Shoalhaven.

I have dined here 5 or 6 times now and have found the food and service consistently excellent. I love the pate (such a generous serve) and the pork belly is beautifully cooked. I enjoyed the lobster bisque and pasta meal, especially when it was...with ravioli. The crème brûlée is far and away the best I have ever had. I have never tasted any of their other desserts and probably never will as the brûlée is SO good. The apricot bread and butter pudding gets rave reviews from friends. I love dining here! My only suggestion for improvement is to teach the younger members of the waitstaff to not clear plates until everyone at the table is finished. When that is the only suggestion for improvement, it is obvious that this high quality restaurant is doing lots right!More

We really enjoyed our dinner. The staff were welcoming and friendly as well as efficient. The food was well presented and delicious. The apricot bread pudding was the best dessert we've eaten in years. It's a stylish restaurant with stylish food.

3 generation gathering for Easter with 2 picky eaters. Everyone enjoyed every aspect of the meal. Pork and chicken Terrine, serving of trio of dips beetroot ,carrot and Hommus, need more bread and bowl of sweet potato fries welcomed. All mains were enjoyed ranging from...Pork rib special with charred corn, Schnitzels with and without porcini sauce, spaghetti bola Blackfish special and Ravioli with prawns.Then wait there were servings of Chocolate cake,apple crumble ,short black or sticky date pudding. You have to book .Its best to book the day before or online bu the online booking on the day stops early. They need this information to make sure the tables are the right size for the crowd coming. You can always have a pizza to go as you leave. Otherwise keep ringing during working hours till they get a chance to answer the phone. All the staff are extremely helpfulMore

We needed a calm delicious Sunday lunch. Greeted with a wonderful array of starters, mains and desserts by fantastic friendly servers. I had the perfect sirloin steak with cafe de Paris butter, whilst my partner thoroughly the roast of the day - beef with the...traditional trimmings. Outstanding desserts of crème brûlée and sticky date pudding followed. Service was friendly, efficient and very attentive. Looking around other diners were also enjoying a very diverse range of offerings including pizza and burgers. For such a new restaurant amazing!More

I've debated over whether to write this review because I feel it is a tale of two cities. So my husband I recently had lunch here, our first visit. My husband ordered the terrine for entree and pizza for main. I had the dips/ bread...and the lobster ravioli. Both entrees were lovely and service was efficient. My ravioli was very nice , cooked well and a lovely sauce. I also very much enjoyed the Rose wine they offer. The problem was the pizza. Full disclosure here...my family is Italian, we have travelled extensively through italy, we have a wood fired pizza oven at home, make our own bases etc. And my husband is a self confessed pizza snob! why would he order pizza then you might ask ( I often do!) but he loves trying new places and loves tasting different pizzas... This would be the only time i have ever seen him unable to eat more than 2 mouth fulls. The base seemed store bought was a bit card board like. The ingredients to us tasted of poor quality, packet shredded ham, olives and artichokes that were marinated that gave the whole pizza a vinegar taste. So we left the pizza, the place was busy by then and went to pay the bill ...on the way out the lady ( owner?) had noticed he had barely touched the pizza and ran after us to ask what was wrong..,.she did offer to refund but we politely declined. Stating that it just wasnt for us...and that the rest of the meal had been lovely. i think the main reason i am writing this review is to firstly say that their service is very good and having followed us to resolve an issue is very good customer service and we appreciated that they tried to resolve the issue. But also to just let any other pizza snobs out there this may not be for youMore

This restaurant is all about good food and hospitality. The room was clean and spacious with seating outside. The welcome was underwhelming by a couple of the staff, as though we were imposing upon them, although there was one lady who was quite warm. The...prawn and scallop ravioli was way too al dente and the filling could have been anything. The lobster sauce was absolutely delicious though. The spaghetti dish was ok. The apricot bread pudding was delicious. A few more tweaks and a clearer understanding of customer service could help this restaurant shine.More

My husband and I, along with two friends, went to Farmgate for dinner last week. Farmgate has only recently opened and so we wanted to try it out. What a lovely surprise! After having a cocktail at the bar, we sat outside on the verandah,...with views across to the leafy park and lake. It was perfect! The staff were very friendly and we could not fault the food in any way… from entree to dessert, everything was delicious! The prices were very reasonably and the service was excellent. We will definitely be returning and could recommend it. The other good thing is that they’re open on Sunday and Monday night, when most other restaurants are closed, so it’s a win win for the locals. Congratulations to the owners, chef and staff on a great job and best wishes for the future.More

It was a pure delight to revisit the team who made travelling to Kangaroo Valley a real delight and food destination! Some of the old classics (lamb cutlets to die for) are present, but it will be interesting to see how this wonderful ambience evolves...with some new dishes, and opportunities afforded by a pizza oven. Always fresh and local, with a broad selection of dishes and wines. A remarkable experience which will undoubtedly improve as the new team settles!More

A group of 16 had dinner on the balcony there last night. It was exceptional: great food, great service and an excellent wine listing at reasonable prices. We’d certainly go back if the occasion arises.
