It t'was a Thursday Night, and it t'was a large group, and the setting by the creek, unique, but the food??? I should say the Garlic Bread was nice, but the main courses were very average!! Kangaroo was dry, tough and way over cooked (yes, and being a bushy, I do know), as were other steaks on our table. Veggies,... More

My wife and I had lunch on Australia Day with a couple of friends who live in the Adelaide Hills at Bridgewater Mill. We had quail as a starter and duck as the main course. The food was well cooked and was presented in a very appetizing way. With our main course we had a Pinot Noir 2014 from Honey... More

Had a most enjoyable meal outside on the deck in a beautiful setting. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were courteous yet friendly. Best meal I have eaten in a long time, highly recommend the sweet treats desert platter!

We had the most perfect here for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Staff were very friendly and helpful; the food was beautifully presented and completely delicious. Amazing coffee too. The atmosphere was gorgeous - ambient lighting, music and cosy surrounds. My husband and I are quite fussy and were really impressed by the whole experience. We definitely recommend this place and...

Apparently this restaurant used to be fantastic. Numerous recommendations had led us here, just to be massively disappointed. Very slow and indifferent service of very expensive, minimalist, COLD food. One course, one glass of wine - two hours lost. We left hungry and disillusioned.

Yes we agree that the food is innovative and well cooked and the staff were attentive without being intrusive. And there was no backgroung music... a big plus (and a noise deadening ceining to conteract the hard slate floors)....we were in the side room (the Fernery?) I would avoid the Petaluma Reisling (far too young/acid... yes I know its a... More
