    A very pleasant brunch / breakfast but the waitress forgot my orange juice. However, she was most apologetic when she remembered. .

    We came for breakfast en route Southward and the Glasshouse is now a compulsory element of future journeys. Ambience, staff and kitchen creativity combine to provide a most pleasant experience. The tariff is at a very sensible level.

    My husband and myself visited the glass house 2 years ago on a visit to the area and we were so impressed we came back again but this time we were a little disappointed with the lack of selection on the menu and the lack of flavour of the dishes we ordered . The service was excellent and the restaurant beautiful but we probably will not travel that distance to come back again .

    Everything was lovely ... amazing view, wonderful textures and landscaping, great service... was just a bit disappointed with my meal... eggs, veggie fritters etc.... should have asked for details... thought there would be lots of pumpkin and a small piece of bacon on a mostly vegetarian meal but 3 tiny cubes of the former and half a plate of the latter... not my thing.

    The setting is magnificent, the service attentive and the food delicious. My only complaint is that I would like to see more on the plate. For instance my wife's (excellent) eye fillet was served with "salad of green tomato, shaved fennel, saltbush, tarragon & toasted sandalwood nut ", which consisted of one halved green baby tomato and a sprinkling of the other ingredients - more a garnish than a salad. Similarly, I could find no sign of the "prawn bisque" that was meant to accompany my orange roughy. My reading of the menu led me to expect more. You definitely need to order the side dishes, which were very good. Also, breakfast the next day was terrific - no complaints at all about that.

    Unfortunately our experience did not meet expectations. Despite booking as early as I could (one month in advance as stated on the booking) we were given a table in the walkway and not by the window, even though we asked to move. Food was very nice, great flavors though the mains weren’t hot which was disappointing. Service not consistent and slow. Serviettes cheap - it’s the small things you notice. But location is outstanding. The view from the deck is breathtaking.

    It’s like felling in love. It stimulates your mind and body the effort they go to to make sure you enjoying yourself without being pushy it’s a must for anyone who wants a dinner experience that will be hard to find in any Australian city the chefs put their heart in the food the layers of flavours blended so carefully just amazing
