Loved the new menu however it was too much food for 2 people. Maybe cut back on the size of the vegetables with the main course. They were delicious but too much. The first course of little offerings was just lovely . An enjoyable Sunday lunch in a beautiful setting. Can’t beat The Heads.

Over the weekend we had the best meal we have ever eaten at this restaurant. The food was exceptional and the service was inviting and at all times catered for our needs.
If you are thinking of having a night out you must book At the Heads, it was value for money and a fantastic experience. Thankyou

We so loved the new tasting menu. Everything was amazing. But If I had to pick a favourite dish then I would say “Poppadoms with spiced eggplant, coconut yoghurt and dukkah”.
Our gratitude goes to the chef and the lovely people who served us.
You made my husband’s 50th a little more special. Thank you.

We spent our anniversary dinner here with a set menu, matched wines and beautiful view to top it off.
The service was fantastic, the menu delicious and accommodated some slight changes for us.
Highly recommended

Really wonderful experience. The food, service and atmosphere were wonderful. The set menu degustation was generous and good value. Also the staff asked how long we would like between courses which meant we could enjoy each course and the accompanying wines properly without feeling rushed.

We (2) had a carefully prepared meal designed with an interesting combination of flavours. The simple honest dishes allowed the food to feature. The challenge to equal the beautiful location was easily met thanks to those who prepared our lunch.

The burgers were excellent and was a very big feed. Atmosphere and service was excellent. Was a little disappointed that I had pre arranged a birthday cake (sticky date for my friend as a surprise) yet on the night it never came out. It wasn’t until I actually went up to the counter and ordered it. The idea of the gesture was that she wouldn’t know about it. Seemed to be a communication problem between staff.

Went in for a Monday lunch with friends. Great service and food. Great view of the heads. Atmosphere was a bit down but that is not a reflection of the venue. All in all a great experience. Would go back especially after Covid 19.

Went to The Heads with my sister son and husband for a birthday lunch.
Decided on several fish tacos as a main as I’ve had them elsewhere and they’d been delicious . What we got was battered deep fried fish on a flat bread , with a sprinkling of cabbage and a squeeze of chilli mayo! It really needed a side of salsa or any chilli sauce or salsa verde to pull it together and make you feel like it was something Mexican. It was basically deep fried fish .
I was disappointed in the lack of flavour in my meal, and my expectation of being in an exceptional location without exceptional food. A good sauce is simple to do but can make all the difference !
However location is amazing and the service was very good !

We came down to the heads for a much needed escape and adult time. The atmosphere has been lost with the COVID requirements but I think they could do more than seating you in a barren room. Like plants or table decor? a candle would be something. Entree and main were delicious however the special desert (chocolate Sunday) was really disappointing, with cold stale waffles and it gave me indigestion. Lovely glass of wine (although reading the wine list is almost impossible and not accessible at all) and my husband enjoyed his g&t.
