    Global winner of the Dilmah High Tea Challenge '15, their selection is amazing and a steal for what you pay. Please book before you go.

    Love the cocktails. The Southern Hemisphere is my favorite. Not cheap.

    If you're going to do it go all out and do the 6 course meal and wine pairing. Absolutely amazing experience and very knowledgable attentive staff. Worth the money. A++

    Good place for cocktails, pricey & horrific hotel design can make it hard to focus, view of bay from 3rd floor rocks

    The fillet steak was fabulous. Recommend the 'Salmon sashimi my way' too!

    When they can serve steak without giving you a steak knife, you know the food is outstanding.

    Food quality & presentation decent (we all had steaks), but overpriced vs. other Welly restos offering steak. Fun this the 1st time, but probably not going back.
