Usually i am not super fan of brunch, but I discovered the friday brunch at Yalumba and I really enjoy the diversity and the quality of food. Their starters are delicious, their fish tartares were so far my favorite! They serve oyster, & a tasty foie gras (and I am french!). I ate so many starters, i couldnt stop. But... More

The normal Friday Brunch is always an enjoyable experience especially since the latest refurbishment. But the extra things organised for Christmas Day made it into a very special day for us. Whether you choose the regular package or go for the champagne option you will not be disappointed.

The buffet differs every night but my family and I ate in Yalumba on a Thursday night and it was excellent. The food was amazing and the service was equally as good! We had a most enjoyable experience.

Group of friends went for the New Years Eve Gala Dinner. As a group we have been to Yalumba quite a few times over the last 8 years, but this was the first time we had been since the new refurbishment has finished. Smarter, more modern, lighter and with far more space than the previously limited elbow room. And the... More

Food was very tasty and drink service was good. Some waiters would make you finish the last of your drink before they would get you another though, which was inconsistent.

We have an annual get together before Christmas for a group of Scots and friends, this was the first at the New Yalumba and we were not disappointed. The layout is exceptional and the staff attentive as always. DJ was spot on with the party tunes. Overall we were made to feel special as always - well done!
