The outlook from this beautiful restaurant across the botanical gardens to the Derwent River and surrounding hills is magical. It really is an oasis in an otherwise busy capital city. For my adult daughter and I it was a perfect setting for a leisurely lunch...More

$20 for Devonshire tea with average jam and aerosol can whipped cream. Tea was fine but was served after we were done with the scones. For half the price it would ok. Would hesitate to come back in future.

Service really good but unfortunately the food was not that great. Tasted like frozen patties in the burgers but the chips were quite good. Quite expensive and not great value for money I am afraid.
