This restaurant has so much potential that the current management clearly want to deliver They need specialist marketing assistance and food that lives up to the ambience

Really pretty setting, tables on a vine leaf framed veranda. Staff were incredibly friendly, food was very tasty with a lovely Australian theme, even had yummy damper on the menu! Looking forward to heading back, even just for tea and scones!

This is my fifth visit..Food is delectable. The main sized dessert was a normal size. The staff were indifferent yesterday. Michael who has served us in the past was amazing.

First impressions are usually the best and long lasting, and my first visit to Lachlan’s was just that... the best. This venue is so unique with its long and interesting history, that there was an expectation that the food should be just as special. So we went to Lachlan’s to try their ‘Trust the Chef’ winter promo and we were in for a treat. We were greeted so warmly, it was easy to forget it was a really cold night. The service was fantastic and the maitre d’ was not only prompt and professional but also a lighthearted funny gentleman! You finally get a glimpse of what is to come when you receive the menu for the evening and a glass of sparkling wine to start. That’s when we knew the evening was going to be a great one. Then, in perfect timing, the four courses started to come. 1. French onion soup 2. Twice-baked cheese soufflé 3. Beef bourguignon 4. Craqueline profiterole To share that we had a great evening and the food was fantastic, is not enough to truly express what an experience it was to come here. It was a wonderful surprise that in the new trend of 2-hour sittings in fine dining restaurants, there are still establishments that will let you linger over your delectable dishes and not rush you out the door. Happy to recommend this place and the Trust the Chef promo, it was fun and a great way to try something new.

Picturesque, historic venue, tables beautifully laid out on a shady vine-adorned verandah. You have to ASK for their café menu (glad I knew about it from previous visits) as staff only present the (more expensive) à la carte menu to diners. Food tasty and well-presented.

It was a fairly average restaurant. Have to say I was expecting something a little more special for the location and price. Nothing in particular to complain about, but nothing to rave about either. Some attention to lighting wouldn't go amiss - no one really wants to eat with a spotlight on them. Candles anyone?

About Lachlan's

Step back in time The first time you visit Lachlan’s you will wonder why you never knew about it before. This delightful eatery is set within Old Government House, and it is a charming chance to revisit an earlier, more refined era. Whether you are popping in for coffee and cake, enjoying a light café lunch on the vine covered terrace or trying the full a la carte menu, you are guaranteed to have a memorable experience. If you are going light, get the Ploughman’s Lunch with damper, cheese, pickles, chutney and a ramekin of soup, and if you are going for a more formal meal, don’t miss the seared kangaroo with grilled pepper potatoes and a caper and rosemary salsa. If you are looking to delight your loved one, try the Romance in History dinner for two, which gives you a specially-designed degustation menu with matching wines that is the perfect way to create a bit of your own personal history. Best dish: lemon and vodka tart
