    Lovely spot for coffee or a morning walk but the food in the restaurant was well below what l expect for the money, they really need to up their game if they want return customers.

    The Boardwalk Cafe has a great outlook with views over the lake. You'd never guess the bustling North Lakes Westfield was only a stone's throw away. Staff were pleasant enough but possibly all very new as they seemed a little lost. Menu was very limited. I had the pumpkin and sage ravioli, which was nice, albeit too little ravioli and far too much sauce. My lunch companions commented they enjoyed the day because we could chat easily, as it was quiet, even though it was busy. We'd go back again.

    I had the pork belly carbonara. It was delicious. Coffee was quite good too. Originally booked for an outside table but had to change to inside due to bad weather. Inside ambience was decent but slightly noisy. Plenty of parking underneath the hotel. It was overall quite good. I would return.

    Large group for lunch, all meals were mediocre at best. We have been quite a few times, and in the past have had incredible service and great meals. this time was a letdown.

    We love the situation of where the Restaurant is. The food was lovely and setting was nice but upon arrival we were told the kitchen closed in 30 mins. We went to our seats and then had to ask for menus. The food was nice but we were never offered a dessert menu when our plates were cleared and they actually starting clearing the flowers etc off our table while we were sitting there which I wasn't impressed with. It was our 10 year Wedding Anniversary and really wanted it to be special.

    Good food at a reasonable price with a varied selection. Outdoor setting overlooking the water was good but indoors would probably be preferable if the temperature was high. Overall a good place for a 'get together' with friends.

    Great location with lovely atmosphere. Parking was very easy. All meals were tasty, not all meals arrived at the same time and one of our groups meal didn’t contain many of the listed salad items listed on the menu but after asking the chef he corrected this. A couple of the staff were a little rude but overall the dining experience here was great.

    No food served between 11 and 11:30 while changing from breakfast to lunch. Would suggest having some toasties or wraps in the cabinet for this in between time as an alternative to cake. Coffee is good.

    The food was average; not overally hot, vegetables were just a few stalks of broccolini, and some "fancy" small carrots, the mash was just warm. I had the stuffed chicken but there wasn't a lot of "stuffing". It also took too long for the meal to be served. I probably wouldn't dine here again.

    My food was cold and served on a cold plate. Shame. It would have been lovely warm. Lovely venue but a shame you have to go outside to order drinks and food when dinning inside. The staff were very pleasant but we had to ask for plates and glasses to be cleared, when the next course was brought to the table.
