The weekend breakfast menu covers all bases, priced reasonably, generous portions of fresh produce. The best part is the open fresh outdoor garden setting you may be lucky enough to get. Otherwise there is plenty of indoor seating.

We should have read their menu before going. We were hoping for English pub food like the webpage said but it is yet another American diner serving mostly burgers in a milk bun and deep fried stuff. Can't wait for this American food trend to be dead, boring and foul. I'd only go back if the restaurant next door was... More

Hi Simon. Sorry to hear about how you felt about the food. The restaurant food is available in the bar during restaurant hours but perhaps you were there on Anzac Day which was one of the few days the restaurant wasn't open. We will be changing the bar menu soon so perhaps you will find it more to your liking... More

Sunny day place for brunch. Interesting menu items such as the Japanese egg sandwich. Sit outside and watch the world go by.

Great atmosphere - caters for the more relaxed up to the more formal. Lovely menu, fun staff and good food. This has now become a regular favoured spot of ours.

Went to the sister restaurant- The Garden Tap - next door. Wow - North Turramurra is now trendy. Great pub food, wide range of beers and wine, and friendly service (note: this sister restaurant is help yourself to cutlery and water). For a couple, we ordered too much food: * Seoul Food Burger - terrific!!!! * Lamb Shank Pie -... More

Pleasant ambience, and varied menu. Well presented food and good quality. A little overpriced. Worth a visit. Can be a bit noisy though. However they do have a quieter area under the gazebo

Popped in for dinner, atmosphere was good and the split bar / restuarant works well. My entree - Squid/Chirizo lacked punch and flavour, no Chirizo flavour. Steak was first class and was delicious, normally hate mash, but this time it was good. Wifes meal was good and no complaints really. Just needs some extra attention to detail across service and...

I used to live around here 10+ years ago and was surprised to see the changes and to find quite a nice eating place. We tried the Garden Tap which is the Cafe part and it was a nice licenced eatery.

We have been here a few times over the years and are always pleased by whatever we order and the food. It has a creative menu without being pretentious. Our two kids love eating here too. Super impressed with the Korean Crispy Rice with Gojuchang egg emulsion and the barramundi. The kids menu while having the usual meal selection for... More

This is a good venue for celebrating any occasion - food is excellent and although it is on the expensive side the food is delicious and the service is great. Has a French influence but changes menu to suit the Season and there is always something new to enjoy.
