We had the most perfect here for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Staff were very friendly and helpful; the food was beautifully presented and completely delicious. Amazing coffee too. The atmosphere was gorgeous - ambient lighting, music and cosy surrounds. My husband and I are quite fussy and were really impressed by the whole experience. We definitely recommend this place and...

Apparently this restaurant used to be fantastic. Numerous recommendations had led us here, just to be massively disappointed. Very slow and indifferent service of very expensive, minimalist, COLD food. One course, one glass of wine - two hours lost. We left hungry and disillusioned.

My partner and myself decided to go for a drive late Saturday afternoon, as it was around 5pm most places where closed for cocktails/wine tasting. Anyhow we tried our luck here and let me tell you it was one of the incredible experiences I have had. I had a cocktail & a glass of sparkling wine & my partner has... More

Yes we agree that the food is innovative and well cooked and the staff were attentive without being intrusive. And there was no backgroung music... a big plus (and a noise deadening ceining to conteract the hard slate floors)....we were in the side room (the Fernery?) I would avoid the Petaluma Reisling (far too young/acid... yes I know its a... More

5 of us enjoyed a lovely lunch celebration. Coming from out of state we were a little disappointed that we were not able to access the outdoor deck ( unfinished) but we were looked after as we were then seated in "The Fernery". We chose the Miller platter , the veggie patch ( platter) and chips and we were extremely... More

What an amazing place, if you want to impress someone, this is the place to go. The ambience in the large room was comfortable and welcoming, music played gently in the background adding to the atmosphere but not intruding. Our waitress was warm, good natured and helpful, she went above and beyond by making inquiries on our behalf about local... More

Decided to go for a drive on an indifferent day and stopped for lunch at the BM. Had read some positive reviews since it changed hands a while ago and were not disappointed. Fabulous food, wine, setting and service. Kingfish starter was a particular standout but we loved everything- scallops with shaved asparagus and confit potato to start, along with... More

Before we were due to fly home to Sydney I wanted to take my wife to a landmark Adelaide restaurant and not only was BWM open on a Monday, it was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Bright, attentive staff and wonderful food. We opted for the tasting menu and it was well worth it as we relaxed through... More

Dinner Friday night for seven. The main room was setup for a wedding, we were lucky to have a magnificent old timber table in a quiet alcove where we could talk at normal levels, and enjoy the food. The wine list has a good range of sparkling wines including a selection of Arras, and the white and red list is... More
