Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

We went on a Friday night and got served straight away. The meat was extremely tender and fell off the bone and the potatoes were nice.

That said I came away underwhelmed and I don't think I'd go back now that I've tried it. I felt as though something was missing, perhaps it was a bit bland for my taste.

It would have been nice to have been offered something to eat it with.

Well worth the $35 - couldn't finish it all - don't eat lunch if you're going here, pedro cares very much for his meat and service

Highly recommended - although a little tricky to find if you don't know where he is. You definitely will want to ring first and book a meal otherwise you may miss out - bonapitito

Don't ask him for mint sauce he doesn't like that either

A signature dish from the famous Pedro's Restaurant. What a way to reinvent oneself. Quite honestly the best lamb and scalloped potatoes you will ever taste. Also bought some Spanish red from LK across the carpark which made the Pedro's experience even more enjoyable. Seriously fellow trip advisors, Pedro's House of Lamb is a genuine ten out of ten!

What is there not to like? Very tender slow cooked lamb with yummy potatoes! Such a nice treat for the quiet night in. I called in advance and picked it up and it couldn't be easier. Highly recommended!

We drove up to Pedro's on a Sunday afternoon with almost no one around and was served straightaway.

We ordered the whole shoulder set which cost $35. For two people, this is quite good seeing as this could probably feed a family of 4. The lamb itself was succulent and falls off the bone with very minimal herbs and spices, allowing the quality of the meat to be enjoyed. Potatoes had that oven baked texture and infuses with the Lamb juices to make it very flavourful.This might not be for patrons with an aversion to the smell of cooked lamb. Some might even see the place being described as Spanish and expect a fiesta-like meal with vibrant colours and complex tastes. This is not it.

House of lamb does what it says on the tin and showcases the beauty of the meat in Pedro's style of cooking. We also noticed that they sold a variety Spanish cured meats for anyone interested.
