Decor is amazing there is so much to look at that every time you look up you notice something else but at the same time it doesn't feel overcrowded or overdone. Service was great we were served by the same waiter each time who was polite and well mannered and made the experience even better. The food was some of the best food I've ever tried. We had the baby salt and pepper squid for entree and it was so tender and the batter was light and crunchy yum! i had a pizza which was delicious, well cooked and the mix of cheese was well balanced and the pear added an extra crunch. My partner had the mixed skewers the veal and chicken was tender and flavors added by the capsicum and red onion complimented the meats well. The vinaigrette of the salad was delicious and my partner who generally doesn't eat salad finished his salad before his skewers. All the food was very reasonably priced considering the overall experience. I would eat here again in a heartbeat. Thank-you so much Cloudland for a five star experience

Came to dine here for a work meeting, and was very impressed. Ordered the t-bone steak, which came out absolutely perfect, with generous portions of sides. Work friend got the veal to good reviews. Ordered the house shiraz from Torbreck with is one of my favourites, and well-priced. Will be returning on a Saturday night for a birthday dinner.

We went here to eat good pizzas. The place is very beautiful and the ambiance is super. Nevertheless, we waited 1h to receive our starter and 1h to receive our pizzas. We wanted to order a dessert but after 20 minutes of wait we decided to leave the restaurant. The food is good but doesn't worth to wait so much. There were only 3 waiters for all the ground floor. Is too bad because the place is very nice, and we could see that the cookers are italians (we are italians).

Went to dinner for my birthday treat but was so disappointed with the food & staff service. Food were all so salty and not so fresh .We told staff but nothing was said & done so we ordered pizza as we were still hungry but only had s slice each that we decided to just take it home and give it away as it was again same as the earlier order salty & not the best tasting pizza . Overall very disappointed & not so good way to finish my birthday celebration.

No music playing in the restaurant meant there was no atmosphere. Food quality has sadly declined since our last visit. There was a function upstairs that moved into the restaurant at 9:30 so we were asked to leave and were taken through to the Press Club. Our waitress was lovely though.

I went for a work dinner so I choose the venue.
On the down side, the music was just much too loud. There was a salsa class going on and we couldn't hear each other talk and were shouting across the table, so we finished our dinner quickly and went to get desert elsewhere.
It would have been good just to have table service, for drinks at least. My work colleague and I had to keep leaving the conversation and buying drinks seperately at the bar and then waiting at the bar and I felt I had to keep apologising for little things. For work people using work credit cards, buying things seperately means later having to scan 5-6 receipts instead of one (when justifying company money spent).
On the upside, it looks nice inside, the bar staff were quite effiecient & friendly and the food was good.
Overall, I would choose elsewhere in future, particularly for work dinners.

Used to love Cloudland but things have gone down hill in the food department and focus seems all to be on the drinks (money makers). Went for a date night out, booked a table online (they couldn’t find the booking when we arrived and just pointed us to an uncleaned table). Ordered 3 share plates and one main, and we aren’t fussy eaters but these meals were underwhelming to say the least. Nothing Iike the Cloudland Italian feast of years gone by.
Bruschetta was uncoated dry toast with chopped up cherry tomatoes - no sauce, no herbs, no onion, just tomato chunks on dry toast. Meatballs were drowned in what tasted like tinned tomato paste - little flavor. And just a weird dish for lamb anyway. Fish croquettes were over cocked on the outside and sloppy inside and felt like they’d been quickly cooked from an old icy packet in the back of the freezer. In saying that - they were the nicest part of the meal.
And the snapper main - the salad tasted like it’d been wilted on the bench and made hours ago and the snapper was dry, tough and tasteless with only about a teaspoon of sauce to try and combat the dryness. Felt like a frozen fish - Aldi has better to be honest.
And like I said - we’re not fussy eaters and are just as happy with a Big Mac as we are with a good parmy or an expensive wagyu, but when you spend over $120 on a dinner like this for a rare child free night out it’s very disappointing.
We don’t think we’ll be back.
(Last time we ate there a couple of years ago it was amazing)

We were told to take a seat anywhere, even though we had a booking and happened to walk past a table reserved for us. We didn’t get table service although other tables did. The music/sub was a touch loud to talk over. Otherwise our meals were lovely.

Don’t like not having table service. For this level of dinning it’s a must. Cheapens the feeling and very hard to sit with friends when you have to get up and down to order all night

Great setting and would have been a great atmosphere had there been more diners in the restaurant.

One of our diners requested a meal without preservatives and sulphates and was told my staff that her meal of choice would be fine. Unfortunately shortly after leaving the restaurant she suffered a reaction from the food shed eaten. Not sure whether her request wasn't taken seriously or if this was a genuine mistake. She has since raised this with the restaurant and I'm not of the response, if any.

The food itself was ok. I ordered one of the gnocchi dishes which whilst nice, lacked flavour.

In all great venue, ok food, but let down by one of the dishes causing an allergic reaction that we were told wouldn't happen.

Delicious food. Far beyond what 12 people could eat on the $39.50 set menu.
The only note I would have was the calamari was a bit rubbery and the ravioli was overtaken by the amount of pesto.

My friends and I booked a table to celebrate my birthday. We decided to have the $39.50 set menu. It was a pain to organise and book the set menu before our night out, and took away some of the excitement for me. The food was nice, but there probably wasn’t enough of it for a banquet.

Half of my group had dietary issues, which - while Cloudland can cater for them- presented some problems in the set menu booking and execution. I did say they were dairy free and gluten free, but a gf pizza with proper cheese came out alongside a vegan gf pizza, which wasn’t clearly communicated to my friends.

There was waaay too much bread, not enough variety of salad/veg and only one pizza - a half and half, and that pizza was supposed to be enough for five people to share.

The Sangria, on special for $30 per jug, was like weak red cordial. Watery and tasteless- not worth it at all.

So the food is delicious, but there wasn’t quite enough. The sangria was terrible. The service was quite good, but there were a couple of miscommunications, and I had to ask for the bill to be corrected, since I’d already paid $90 as a deposit for the set menu, but it wasn’t taken off the bill.

Just order off the menu when you get there - don’t bother with the banquet. It was a pain to organise and disappointing when it came.

Definitely make a 6/6.30 reservation- you’ll get the place to yourselves and it won’t be too loud. Cloudland is a beautiful venue, and the food is really lovely. Just make sure you check your bill, ask what everything is and who it’s for, and skip the set menu!

The food was good but I feel they need to expand their menu to have some additional diverse options. The service was great as they are very friendly and accommodating. The live band was great and the music when the band was on break was great as well! Very Beautiful decor on both levels.
