Before writing this review, I read the recent poor reviews as well as noting that the adjacent co-located Wallis Tavern is rated much more highly than this venue, notwithstanding that they are essentially the same venue. I visited for Sunday lunch, and it was very pleasant. The establishment has a pleasant garden outlook, with a modern contemporary decor. The service... More

We've been residents of Mt Barker for over 12 months but this was our first visit. Where to start. Admittedly we hadn't booked but despite lots of empty tables our waitress chose a table between two related families dining at the same time. Kids running amok between the tables. Drinks service was really slow unlike our meal which arrived 5... More

Food is good and an easy place to eat before catching a movie at Wallis cinema next door. Beware they don't serve any dinner before 6pm which mean if you plan on catching an early movie, you may have to rush your meals. I have been coming here for years and while bar staff are friendly, dinner service has become... More

Came here Saturday night for a birthday and had a 6pm booking. The restaurant only had about 6 tables occupied and it still took 30 minutes for our first round of drinks. Lets leave it to say we didn't get anymore drinks unless we went to the bar, they simply forgot about us. Our meals were taken very promptly and... More

An excellent dinner with friends sitting at a window seat and enjoying the view. Great menu choices with a vegetable/salad bar. Highly recommended.

Came with a group of 12 on a Saturday night. Received fairly appalling service, with a waitress who was in tears at one point for some reason. Drinks failed to arrive, took several prompts to finally get. Meals for 12 people came out staggered over about 30 min period. Kids meals came out LAST! Very ordinary food, particularly for the...

I've been here several times for a meal before theatre, conferences and a snack and wine to catch up with friends. Apart from the pokies which always take away from atmosphere I'd recommend for sure

I was part of a group of about 20 people. It was our annual Christmas breakup lunch. Customer service is something that means a great deal. I might come back to a place for a good product, but if I get excellent customer service, I'll always come back to a place. We got excellent customer service for our meal. The... More
