We shared a buffet and it worked out really good value. We got to taste everything from emu to croc and the flavours were terrific. Would definitely go again.

“Great experience”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

We were given a voucher for Christmas, for the Ochre Restaurant. Great gift.
After we were seated, the waitress explained the menu and the specials, very professionally with a good knowledge of the foods. While we were looking over the menu another waitress asked if we had any question. So very attentive but not pushy or annoying.
We settled for the Oysters, then the Lamb short loin, The Aus Antipasto, then Seafood Compilation, and a plate of Spicy Chips. Wow what great flavours, Everything apart from the chips was cooked to perfection and we took great enjoyment in savouring every tasty mouthful. I'm not sure if the Chef was not really interested in serving chips which were pretty tasteless. But hey, they were on the menu.
Will definitely be back and have already advised others to try it. It is a little on the expensive side but the whole experience is worth it for a lovely evening out.

“Excellent food, great staff. Service was pretty quick.”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

The staff were excellent. They found us a table outside, even though it had not been set. Very attentive and pretty prompt.
The menu is interesting as it had lots of Australian ingredients. The food was excellent.
