A four course meal with 5 star service for $30! Its a training venue, so the students are very keen to please. They also do a 3 course lunch for $22! We went to the Prymont food festival's Mudgee Wine dinner, put on by TAFE's budding chefs, and hospitality course. Excellent wines were matched from the Mudgee region. Look out for it in early May each year. The whole lot just $65 per head. There was a full house, but I couldn't fault the service. The Maitre d' was first class, despite a full house, and supervising a dozen students, he still found time to attend to each and every guest. Many of the TAFE colleges have a venue like this. You won't get better value for money.
The last few reviews are getting old, but they are all still 100% relevant. Read them over.

Had 4 course meal- first course was the creamy asparagus soup and the stuffed ricotta zucchini flowers. The second was Lebanese Fattoush salad and broad bean and scallops. The scallops were cooked perfectly! Mains were kangaroo and seared kingfish and dessert was a peanut butter fondant and pistachio mousse. I think its really value for money and would go back again!!!!

Do this. You won't regret it. Service varies as this is a training venue but the food is as good as it gets and definitely worth the price (approx. $34 au) One glass of wine or beer included , 4 course meal , everything looked and tasted awesome. Flavors were spot on. Some waitstaff may appear a bit nervous but all were very professional. Again this is a hidden gem you need to experience!

I first read about The Apprentice in a Singapore Airlines inflight magazine. The praise there encouraged me to try it myself. As the name suggests it is a training school for future chefs and restaurant staff. Hence the remarkably reasonable prices for food and wine .The staff are very professional and friendly and while working under the eye of their supervisor sometimes understandably nervous. One has to reserve via their website or by telephone and payment is upfront. The details on their website are very helpful.
Of all the restaurants that I visited, including renown Sydney restaurants, The Apprentice gave great food for tremendous value.The day we were there we enjoyed fantastic local seafood and wondeful Australian wines.
