Had two great entrees, well made vodka martini, scotch man hill Shiraz, small serving of arancini as entree and slow cooked 24 hr lamb and last but not least pumpkin soup as had depleted the cauliflower soup then followed by flathead and chips. All so good. Cheese platter for two was great but chocolate hot dessert was not appealing at all.

I would have rated this restaurant higher had it not been for the fact that my wife’s chicken dish arrived over cooked and dry. Not what I would expect from a restaurant of this standing. When pointed out to our server/manager a shrug of the shoulders was the response. I think that an offer of an alternative or perhaps recompense in the way of complimentary coffee would have been made nice gesture. All in all a disappointing experience.

For first time guests, it is quite difficult to locate in the dark. It would be helpful to have a well lit sign on the Brougham Road entry directing guests to take the steps downstairs to the main restaurant entry.
