Very happy to have enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Baduzzi. The food was presented beautifully, and was delicious. The staff were pleasant and helpful, even recommending foods we would like to try - all recommendations were excellent.

We've dined at Baduzzi several times, it's especially great for lunch. Service is good, food exceptional and quite different, it's always an enjoyable experience - with some excellent wines too. Looking forward to next time!

Went to Baduzzi for our 10th wedding anniversary and had another outstanding meal with exceptional service. I had prawns then snapper/scampi tortellini my husband kingfish then steak. Desserts: chocolate torte and trifle. Possibly ate too much but couldn't fault anything. 10 out of 10.
