Chef John Leverink serves up a range of contemporary and innovative Australian dishes with the freshest ingredients in elegant surroundings. Choose from their four-courses a la carte or their specialised private dining menu which offers many different theme menus for events. A front of house team keeps the floor running efficiently with an emphasis on friendly, professional, knowledgeable service. The three private dining rooms are spectacular and provide a wonderful setting for your event. The white linens, crystal glassware, and beautiful views of the lake make this venue unique and memorable.
