Excellent atmosphere, staff & food. Phillip, Michael & the staff are wonderful & love to get involved with people for a good laugh & fun times, whilst still providing a professional service. We have been a couple of times & every time we go we walk out with smiles on our faces & a full stomach. Thank you to all... More

This was booked on a voucher through Groupon, so possibly discounted price = discounted service. I'll just tell it like it was. On arrival a table was quickly set up for us, but they forgot the tea spoons. High TEA and no tea spoon? D'Oh. We were quickly attended to by a lovely lady with sparkling wine, which was filled...

This charming restaurant in a meticulously restored heritage building is located in beautiful Parramatta Park and is truly a memorable romantic dining experience. We had a voucher and the dining offer was sensational! All the wait staff were friendly and attentive and worked well together as a team. The 3 courses we had were delicious and the quality of ingredients... More

Awesome food and attentive friendly Staff. Great location with food that is just perfect. We have also held a small engagement party 10 Years ago and it is still providing good food and great service. Highly recommended.

We visited here after doing some wedding shopping in Parramatta. The location was lovely. The high tea was a nice variety of sweets and savoury.

Stopped in for morning tea and had a lovely devonshire tea. Service from Philip was fabulous, he even made me home brewed iced tea on request, nothing was too much. Thanks for a lovely meal in a charming, peaceful surrounding.

We are 3 couples who have know each other for over 30 years. We go out to catch up infrequently and celebrate per the review title. We booked a Saturday night after a hot summer day in Sydney followed by an afternoon storm. We were greeted by the smiling engaging Maitre d who apologised that service would be a little... More

We used a Groupon voucher to try out Lachlan's Restaurant and we were so glad we did. We were able to choose from the full A La Carte menu food - there were some great choices. All the food we had was lovely - we do recommend the Lamb Shanks and Beef Eye Fillet. You could not fault the service... More

We had a conference at Old Government and used the catering from this restaurant. The food was OK but the service was beyond slow. We preordered our lunches in the morning and it took me up to 30 minutes to receive my meal each day. Unacceptable when you have 45 minutes for lunch. They simply needed to get more staff... More

Had a lovely dinner here using a Groupon voucher. Interesting old buildings nicely set out as a restaurant. Had choice of the whole menu 3 courses with a bottle of wine. Excellent service as well so worth a visit. Possibly a touch expensive without a voucher but great for a special occasion when you don't want to go into the... More
