Our family of 8 were celebrating a birthday. We had the 2 course option. The food was delicious and plentiful. The staff were friendly and attentive. It was a beautiful night and we were seated next to window so enjoyed the views of the sunset and later the city lights. Hopefully not too long before we can go again.

The bistro/restaurant located right near a tourist rest area made it hard to get in.
Once we got looked at and asked about our booking we were placed in the spectacular viewing area of the toilets. Thankfully it wasn’t overly busy so we were moved again near the windows and near the beautiful views outside, however the table cloth hadn’t been changed from the previous diners. We did appreciate the speedy move though.
It took a while to be served as it seemed the staff were more interested in gossiping the whole time. I ordered a $40 steak that tasted more burnt than anything so was quite disappointed overall. Won’t be back to the restaurant but will definitely check out the views again.

we booked a dinner for two in this restaurant for saturday 30mar. when we got to the restaurant the receptionist told us that we do not have a booking. 15min later we found out that they stuffed up the booking and bokked us for 31mar. No apologies was given by the receptionist. She just walked us to our table. When we sat down we realised that se were given a table that was wobbly! We couldn't be bothered changing tables so we just fixed it ourselves with a table napkin.

After a long wait the waitress approached us to get our orders. We ordered 2 drinks, 2 entrees and 2 mains. The waitress aaid that the bread will come out soon. After a while the 2 drinks came. About 25min later... no bread and no entree. A few more minutes later the 2 mains arrived! It was just wow! The attention to detail this restaurant has is close to zero!

When they realised again that they had made a mistake they offered a complimentary dessert which we declined to accept. We just wanted to finish our mains and get out of this place!!! TBH if it wasn't late already and we weren't starving we would have just left and not eat the food they served. The service was so appalling that I can't even taste the food i was eating.

Will never recommend this restaurant to anyone!

The chicken & bacon salad was average but fulfilling. Prices were on the expensive side as you could expect for a place at a viewpoint. Friendly service.

Decided to go for the Sunday roast lunch. Staff were very attentive & friendly, views were to die for but sadly, everything we put on our plate from the help yourself buffett was almost stone cold, ruining what otherwise would have been a delicious roast lunch. The dessert bar was certainly nothing to write home about & some idiot had a drone staring in the window as we ate....
