We had a wonderful evening at this restaurant. The staff were friendly & professional . The scallops for entree were delicious! We both wanted to have a second serving. Mains were as described & desert was made all the better with complimentary champagne from the management to celebrate our special occasion.

The food and the selection was fantastic. The food was delicious. The restaurant was your typical size and is connected to the Mercure Gerringong hotel resort.

I have had dinner twice at this restaurant in the last month. One of the better ones in the Accor group of hotels. The food is exceptional, try the tasting plate for entree and the donuts for dessert

A nice menu, the serves are generous, but it's quite a pricey menu. Beware if they are having a busy night - I ordered a meal as a "room service" option and I was told it would be 30 minutes but it arrived well over an hour later. My Beef Sirloin wasn't exactly warn when it arrived but I was... More

My wife and i have eaten here on two occasions while staying at the Mercure Gerringong. The staff and service is very good. The serving sizes could be a little bigger however the food is great. After paying $30.00 for a breakfast Buffet i thought it was a little unreasonable to request an extra $2.00 for a poached egg, where... More
