My boyfriend and I came here on our anniversary today. They had a 2 course special going on for $45, which is what we picked. My boyfriend ordered an entree and main and I ordered a dessert and main.

Menu is a little limited, and even more so with the 2 course special, but the food was really great nonetheless.

The entree portion was huge compared to what we thought it'd be, and it was more than enough for the both of us. If we had both ordered entrees it would've been overkill. Same with the dessert. More than enough for both of us.

The main was of a good portion size, not too much, not too little, and tasted really great.

Service was good, although the only downside was we weren't sure if we had to wait to be seated or if we could just walk in, and no staff came out to let us know since we'd been standing a bit unsure for a while just in case. We ended up just walking in and it was fine.

It might be a bit expensive for what it's actually worth, but as mentioned before, we thought the food was great so we didn't mind. It's too expensive to justify if it wasn't on a special occasion in my opinion.

Overall our experience here was really good, would visit again on another special occasion for dinner!

Whist staying at the Sebel Suites we ate here twice using our Advantage Plus card, and it was fantastic. The first time we ate there was four if us and we all had different entrees and mains and desserts and whilst the time between ordering and receiving was a little slow (our daughter was famished after work) once we received our meals we were delighted. The second time we had a similar experience with the timing issue, perhaps a little bread roll would suffice whilst waiting. Wine selection was great and can be bought by glass or bottle. Great value for money.

Breakfast was included with our stay at The Sebel.
It was served in Palettes Restaurant and consisted of a full hot and cold buffet selection.
The choice of dishes was more than adequate and the quality of food was very good.

Stopped here by chance and not much open . Friends were staying at the Sebel, and had the best calamari ever. Salt and lemon myrtle. Absolutely delicious. Staff extremely friendly and attentive. Panna cotta dessert was to die for. Small menu but liked everything. Hard to decide. Very reasonably priced.
