My partner and I decided to try the Lakehouse after a friend recommended it too us and we weren't disappointed. I had the rib eye steak wrapped in bacon with king prawns and enjoyed every bite. The staff was friendly but it was the lake views that made the night.

I was happy with my meal, which was steak. It was cooked to my liking, which is a challenge because I am fussy. The view is amazing.

Me and my husband and son visited for lunch by recommendation while visiting. It was a lovely atmosphere and we had a wonderful view out to the water. The service was fantastic and prompt and the food was great. Will definitely return next time we are here.

Made a booking for nine people for this Sunday for a high tea celebration for mother's 80th birthday only to be phoned today and told we had to pay for ten people which is ridiculous considering I was told the minimum was six when I booked, I was quoted a price and now they have decided to increase the price...

I went to this restaurant on Easter Sunday for my birthday lunch with family and friends. I was very disappointed with the service and the food. It took 20 minutes before anyone came anywhere near us. An hour and half later our meals came out. I ordered the Citrus Duck which was the second most expensive meal on the menu.... More

We have been to the Lake House a few times now. Most times it has been great. But the service has been going downhill the last few visits. Today we waited 30 minutes before they even came to get our drink order 90 minutes later we finally got our food. I mentioned to the manager that I was dissapointed. Rather... More
