We thoroughly enjoyed our High Tea experience. All the food served was excellent, the savouries (sea food)were exceptional. The wine and teas served also very enjoyable. We were very impressed with the excellent service

Went to the Wilmot with a group of friends for a catch-up.
Totally wowed by the food, wine and restaurant space. The bar and restaurant areas have a beautiful art deco feel, with a great atmosphere that facilitiated good conversation. Service was excellent, but not intrusive. Before we knew it, 10.00 had chimed, and time to return home to the comfort of our beds!!

Friendly staff but food was below par. Had wagyu for main, thought it was tough and no favour. Melted cheese with mango cubes around it and called it mango cheesecake. Surly can do better than that!

My friend and I had a very pleasant dining experience at Wilmot at Primus Hotel. We went there for lunch. We both had steak dishes which were delicious. The cuts of meat were of high quality and the steaks were perfectly cooked. Very pleasant service as well. Would recommend to others.

A lovely meal shared with my niece for her birthday. Food was tops, though I would have liked at least one other vegetarian dish to choose from. But what we had was delicious. Staff were helpful, but discrete. The Creme Brulee is to die for!

Please don't pour the tea for the customer - many people like to let it brew more, especially with only one teabag.

We had a great girls' catch up session over High Tea there. With multiple change requests, staff were very accommodating, good service too. A little disappointing with the finger sandwich choice was with pickled cucumber, but overall food choices were good, enjoyed the scone especially.

Didn’t want to go far so booked this restaurant near my accommodations. The quail looked nice but was rather a letdown as it was a bit overdone, the dried grapefruit was colourful but didn’t go well with the salad; the lamb shoulder was good - quite well marinated, succulent inside but crispy on the outside. It was a nice move to offer wine pairing with the menu, though there should always be a choice of just ordering food? The service was warm and genuine. All in all, a little bit disappointing at $55.38 ($62.38 with tips).

Second time to have dinner with friends. This one was on a friday night. Only once the server missed a drink order, overall service was excellent and friendly.
The restaurant wasn’t full and would have appreciated not being seated in the middle of the foot traffic area. It would be a perfect 10 if we were asked if we wanted a quieter area, after all, catching up with friends is best if we can talk and have privacy and not in the middle of the action across the floor of the restaurant.

How disappointing. We went for a birthday lunch and took advantage of the 2 courses for $50. I can only speak for my meal which was really disappointing. So the description stated "Steamed Murray Cod, Asparagus, Baby Carrots, Sugar Snaps" sounds good right? Well what came out was peelings of carrots (not baby carrots and not whole) one sliver of one asparagus and one (yes one) sugar snap pea! What the? Did they run out of food? Were they stocking up for Armageddon? The dessert was nice...

Wonderful dinner, top to bottom. Came with 8 people and did the three course option, couldn't have asked for a nicer night. Place was busy but not packed, but felt spacious at the same time. Casually paced dinner, and the food was the highlight and star. Will be back again!

My girlfriends and I celebrated two of our birthday's over a delicious 3 course dinner.
Great choices and value.
We could actually talk to each other quite easily, no yelling or repeated answers.
We all had a great time.

I have dined at The Wilmot many times, but it was the first time for my 2 friends. They were extremely happy with the food, service and the ambience. They will be back!
The only 'problem' is the lack of hand rail at the entrance to the hotel, since one of my guests uses a walking stick. She would have felt more confident if there was a rail for her to hang on as she negotiated the steps.
