“Incredibly disappointing and rude.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

We stayed at the accompanying accommodation over the weekend and were excited to try the restaurant on Saturday night after reading its reviews.
We were told The Vue were open from "6pm til late" and we decided to wander over at about 7.30pm. The waitress greeted us with the line "I hope you are not here for a table" to which we were understandably taken aback. She advised that they did in fact have spare tables but that she would need to "check with the chef because I'm not sure he wants anymore." After checking with the chef she returned to tell us that "the chef says no." The waitress was not pleasant and to turn away customers who are staying at the accommodation was quite shocking to say the least.
I can not stress how low I rate this venue and I strongly recommend you avoid it at all costs.

“Wonderful night of excellent food, service and entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Four of us stayed overnight at the resort, for a two course meal and entertainment package, Gypsy Rose. Cannot speak highly enough about the accommodation. We had an amazing nights sleep in a king size bed,with an electric blanket supplied, a,very comfortable.room which is lovely, modern and very tastefully decorated. The two course meal, a main and a sweet were 5 star,very very impressive. The food is absolutely delicious, wonderful chefs and wonder wait staff, extremely efficient service. And to top it of this night we were wowed with the music of Gypsy Rose. Well done for excellent service , Highly recommended,, especially if they can bring in entertainment, made it a great weekend getaway.

“Fine dining meets generous portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

What a great restaurant. The service was very good and we had a young guy who had obviously just started so was still learning. He was really pleasant and attentive to us the whole time. We had a prawn bruschetta and baked bread with chilli and garlic oil and garlic butter to start with. They were both absolutely delicious and well presented. Very generous servings as well. I went on to have porterhouse steak which was cooked to perfection and generous serves of vegetable. The thing that made this dish so lovely was loads of sauce. My father had scotch fillet with garlic sauce and he also commented on how generous they were with the sauce as he hates running out of sauce with his meals. He was very impressed with his meal. My mother had eye fillet with heaps of vegetables as well and a generous serving of gravy. We would dine here again and we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere as well. The restaurant was fitted out with a lot of timber and the bar was a centrepiece of the restaurant with a majestic copper top circling the bar. I would definitely say this place is fine dining but with lovely big plates of food so you won't leave hungry. We will return.

“Very fine and value for money”

Excellent service and meal quality ...no tiny portions. Once you have tried this restaurant, travel up the road to Lost Farms (adjoining golf course) to check out the view from there!

“Not a winter restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

Good restaurant but totally empty when we stayed so no atmosphere. Enjoyed the mussels and the soup. Probably lively in summer when the bar would be crowded as well as the restaurant.
