The food was great and tasty. The service was a bit disappointing. After ordering drinks, a beer and Coke Zero, they came and the disappointment began. The Coke Zero was flat, it was disgusting. Didn’t want make a scene so didn’t mention it. We were still waiting for our water, I was thirsty, so under sufferance I drank the coke. When we ordered next round drinks, I politely mentioned to the waitress, the coke is very flat. She said, must be nearly empty. I have to have drinks little to no sugar. She offered me a Coke Zero in a can, I said that would be great. My husband ordered another beer. He watched from tabl as the person behind the bar poured another Coke Zero from the drink machine and it was brought over. No can. I tasted it and was exactly the same, I couldn’t drink it. We had finished our meal and still no second beer for my husband. When the waitress took our plates, I said don’t worry about the beer now. She replied, oh didn’t it come? It had been added to our bill, which she went to fix.
Restaurant wasn’t that busy but felt staff wasn’t really interested. We had eaten our lunch there earlier in the day and the staff (different) were very attentive and had a great experience. The lunch time was probably busier. Not sure I’d return for dinner. Don’t promise something to guests (can) if you don’t intend delivering. Disappointed.

Kids menu unavailable so not much appealed to them. Asked for a simple pasta with red sauce and got charged for and adults ragu pasta minus $10. This made each kids serve of basic pasta $23 each!!!! Checked that the bill was correct and they confirmed that was the price! Never going back. Rest of the food was sub standard. Nothing good to say about it at all. Sad way to start our holidays. Very disappointed.

Even in the midst of the Pandemic and with Social Distancing obviously in force, lunch at the Flinders Hotel didn't skip a beat. The food was on point, the cocktails generous and the service enthusiastic and well-paced. My wife, in particular, praised her delicate fillet of Orange Roughy and she's not easily impressed. We'll be back.

We found the restaurant to be a pleasant dining experience with the food being of high quality and service excellent. The ambience however could be improved as it is lacks character and was very drafty. The background music playing was radio like In quality this not adding to the atmosphere.

Lovely night for our birthdays. We were placed by the fire which was fantastic. The food was very good. We would have preferred eye fillet rather than sirloin but the meal was very good all the same.

We had a table of four for a Friday lunch. The menu had excellence options and I was spoilt for choices. The wines were wonderful and the staff pleasant. We have been there quite a few times and I highly recommend this venue. The bistro had been configured in consideration of the COVID-19 and made us feel comfortable.

Family dinner, down for wedding from Sydney.
3 Vegans, one with dairy allergies. Food was great but not a lot of options for them - one vegetable dish was cooked in butter but was listed as vegan.
For no meal issue eaters, food was fabulous.
Thankyou.

Food was good but wait staff need to focus on their customers rather than gossiping amongst themselves.
I did noticed that once Dennis Walter arrived they went the extra mile. Casual chat to welcome him and his wife, wiping down surfaces before they sat and constant focus to ensure his experience was great.
My money is as good as his so your service should be consistent.

We had a lovely lunch for a birthday. The service was great and the lady was very accommodating as we decided on arrival to move from our booked inside table to outside near the play equipment. This was no trouble at all. We all enjoyed our meals but the summer salad was particularly good.

Duck confit was excellent. Gnocchi for the little one was expensive and not as flavoursome as it could have been. Kids fish and chips was also a bit disappointing as the fish lacked the flavour of the grown-up version. Flinders is a lovely place to visit and this is one of the best places to eat there if you have children. On a previous visit I had the seafood linguine and this was fantastic.

Everything was great. Just one comment. I chose the poached salmon as I am watching my diet at it was very good. It would be good though if the creamy sauce was on the side as I would have liked it without. There was plenty of flavour to the meal without it. Food is always good here so no real complaints but just a suggestion.

We found eating at the Hotel dining room a most pleasant experience. Service was great, staff friendly and helpful, food featured wholesome servings, and prepared nicely. Prices seemed about average, only real drawback was,we thought, somewhat limited offerings. Would recommend this restaurant and sure we will return in the future.

We ate dinner here on Monday night. We arrived at 7.30 and were told our meals would be quick as we were the last booking. We waited 50 minutes! After half an hour I asked the waitress where our drinks were. She then told me she’d forgotten to place our order. It then took another 20 minutes before anything arrived. Given that we paid $10! Yes $10 for some bread, the least they could have done was given us this on the house. Poor,poor service. Very badly managed and organised. We won’t be going back.
