    Delicious meals in a wonderful atmosphere. Great restaurant to celebrate special events; fancy enough to feel like a special occasion but not outrageously expensive. The staff were all wonderful; and we really enjoyed the service from out waitress Lola who went above and beyond for us. Thanks Lola for making it a memorable evening!

    We ordered the beetroot and pumpkin purée dip . The beetroot was edible but bland. The pumpkin tasted terrible and the tortilla chips served with the dips were stale. The cheese plate, listed as a shareable plate included a 5 cm(2 in) piece of cheese. Again not outstanding in flavor. The raspberry cheesecake had a beautiful presentation and lovely crust but lacked flavor. The raspberry sorbet was delightful. Beware this restaurant doesn’t allow any take away or wrapping up any food. I would not recommend this restaurant. I almost forgot to add that I was charged a hefty “Sunday surcharge”; a fee for coming in, supporting and spending at this restaurant!

    Service was excellent, super friendly and accomodating. The ambience and view is just gorgeous. We had olives to start which were delicious, and the halloumi which was excellent too. We had to ask for a second piece of bread though as the little piece we got wasnt enough for the large halloumi. My husband ordered the zucchini cannelloni, which looked amazing but was more of an appetizer size, it tasted boring and was luke warm. I had the fried enoki with greens, which tasted divine, but was cold on the outside and hot at the bottom/middle. I am aware that there are micro greens on as garnish, but that doenst mean it has to be served lukewarm to ensure the microgreens dont shrivel and get cooked. The plates look classy but have a rough texture that makes it feel weird when you try to gather stuff on your plate, and the cutlery sits rather heavy in the hands. Cocktails and wine were perfect, atmosphere great, comfortable chairs. The service was very friendly and made us feel special on our night out.

    We booked an early dinner for Valentine's Day and nearly had the place to ourselves which was lovely. Our table location was by the window and with beautiful views. We were served almost immediately and she was polite and kind, if a bit too attentive. The server may have been new as she interrupted us twice as we were "mid-bite" of food and also spilt oil from the plate all over the table and didn't clean it up. Small things that make a difference - we ended up borrowing another napkin to clean it ourselves. The server also didn't know any local whiskies which was disappointing - the food and wine is obviously well focused on Tasmania but the spirits could use a boost! The Valentine's Day cocktail was yummy and well priced. We really enjoyed it. The entire place was neat, clean and well presented. We ordered the house made halloumi to share and it was delicious with a squeeze of lemon. It could have used some pepper however there is no salt or pepper on the table and the server was busy at the time so we did without. Next we ordered the steak each. At $48 a serving, we expected to leave satisfied and full. It was beautifully cooked and presentation was excellent but sadly, as is sometimes typical of fancy restaurants, the serving size was so small we left hungry. Our 1 x entrée, 2 x mains and 2 x drinks cost $170 and we ended up getting an ice cream sundae down the road to fill up before our next part of our date. The dish consisted of 6 thinly sliced, perfectly cooked slices of steak about the size of a 50 cent piece each. on a bed of mash with 2 small grilled leek shoots. It was topped with a pepper cream sauce. Honestly - the adding of some more greens, a small side salad or anything would have been a very welcome addition and was needed to make this a "meal". We don't have the money to go to these sort of dinners and it was a very special occasion for us which we will not be in the position to repeat if we are going to end up leaving hungry.

    The Cauliflower main dish was not as indicated ‘a steak’, and had no taste! The dip plate with tortilla chips was very unappealing with hardly any dips. ☹️ the Cannelloni was also not much of a dish. The deserts were the best dishes. On the whole a bit disappointing! Could be a lot better.

    No need to write much, we were celebrating our mutual birthdays, mine my 79th and Jennie's her 75th. We were so well looked after, and the food was both original, superbly and creatively presented, and delicious to boot. The wine and drink lists were fantastic and the experience was amazing. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient

    Unfortunately we did not have a great experience for our dinner date last night…the service was incredibly disorganised, although the staff were pleasant, nobody seemed to know what was going on. The food was hugely overpriced for what was presented, and we left quite disappointed. It’s unlikely we’ll return.

    We attended the restaurant based on sampling Frogmore Iced Riesling and the menu on line. The service is probably the worst I have experienced for some time. When our meals arrived we asked for a glass of wine and was told that 'it is really busy and it may be 15 minutes before you get it'. Wine not poured at the table, water brought in glasses poured elsewhere! When we asked for the bill it took another 15 minutes and while waiting we were asked by 3 different staff if we wanted desert, water etc. Not what you would expect and not good for Frogmore Wines reputation. Overall very poor.
