“Great location, average service, food OK.”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

Have been to Vat 2 a few times now and it's a bit hit or miss. Have had a couple of good meals there, but some very average ones too. The location is amazing, and almost makes up for its shortcomings. The service just needs a bit of work. We waited over 45min for coffee, in a restaurant with only 6 occupied tables.

“What a View!!”
Reviewed 9 October 2011

Went to find somehwere to go for lunch, found Vat 2 and ended up staying for 4 hours! Service was great, the food was nice, the wine/drinks menu was excellent and the service was the main reason we stayed so long. Full credit to the staff that were so nice that we didn't want to leave, oh and the view didn't hurt either!

“Tasty (Risotto a bit off).”
Reviewed 29 September 2011


The food was very tasty. 

We (table of four) all shared a number of starters which were fantastic. 

There is an extensive wine list and the Vasse Felix Shiraz went down a treat!

For mains I had the fillet steak which was delicious. 

Two others ordered steaks which looked great, but the risotto that one of our companions ordered was large enough to swim in and our friend said the rice was very hard and she didnt eat much of it at all. 

When asked if the meal was okay she said it wasn't but no attempt was made at all to rectify the problem - not even an apology, which was a bit of a let down.

“Ideal Location”
Reviewed 6 September 2011

Went for Lunch, beautiful table overlooking the water.

Service was Great
Menu was Great
Food was Ho Hum

Reading the Menu we couldnt wait to order and get our meals, but when they came, it was just kinda lack luster. It was edible, and it was nice, but I expected more. I

“Great night out”
Reviewed 1 March 2011

Absolutely wonderful food and wonder atmosphere. Only let down was mains being brought out while we were still finishing our entrees. But aside from that everything was excellent and we'll definitely be returning!
