Nearly 12 months on since my last visit & wasn't disappointed at all.
As usual, the food & service was impeccable.
Catching up with good friends was well worth the drive from Clyde to dine at Otree.
Our arancini starter was so delicious that we couldn't wait to tuck in!
We ordered a chicken roulade, rack of lamb, risotto & a prawn pasta.
Each meal was fantastic!
So fresh, tasty & plated beautifully.
The whole experience is always enjoyable, especially when the staff make you feel so welcome.
Although we didn't have a dessert this time, the latte's were perfect.
It's so nice to be able to walk away feeling content & satisfied with our meals.
You must put some time aside & have a meal here.
The owner/chef genuinely cares about the food he prepares & his patrons.

We were looking for a dinner a little step up from one of the local pubs. Only living down the road i had never been here for dinner. Service was excellent given there was a function in the back area and the restaurant was about half full. The pork belly entree was tender and tasty. For main i had the pumpkin pie which was nice. $135 for 2 entrees, 2 mains, a bottle of bubbles and sparkling water. Not an every week venue for us but i would definiately come back for a nice meal.

Experienced the casual atmosphere at Otree for a nice lunch with my wife, Sister & Brother in law
Beautiful sunny day large windows let in the light and sun creating a lovely warmth whilst eating our meal
Menu quite varied with plenty of dietary options
I ordered calamari as an entree with lamb rack as a main (both GF)
Good selection of wines at reasonable prices
Staff friendly and knowledgeable
Plenty of parking space
Highly recommended

We made a booking for lunch and this is the first time we have visited OTree. It was great to see the restaurant had provided large dining chairs that were not heavy. There was a large group there at the time, but we were far enough away so that the noise did not impinge on our conversation. We sussed the menu out before eating here so had a good idea of what we wanted to order. The menu looked very modern and the staff were very flexible in having entree's as main meals. The food did not disappoint. Everyone at our table enjoyed the flavours and textures of our three course meal. With alcohol (by the glass) the bill came in at around $60 per head. The restaurant was not full of patrons but I got the impression that one of the wait staff appeared to be rushed. Getting their attention to order more drinks was a challenge.When the food arrived the plates were plonked down in front of us and she could not remember who ordered what. It was really the only downside to eating at OTree. It took about 2 and a half hours to complete the meal, which was okay as we were not in a hurry. Would visit there again.

We had lunch here on a very hot day, our group had an age range from children to grandparents and the restaurant had very few diners for lunch. It was uncomfortably hot sitting at our table so we sought to move our table more in line with the airconditioner and the young waitress who was assigned to serve us actually said that it was not hot where she was standing (in front of the airconditioner) and that the staff were hot too. It all went downhill from there, with this same waitress choosing to speak back at us on a number of occasions, and of course calling us guys (to my wife).
The food was very good.
