Feedback from customers!

“I organised the Melbourne Cup Celebration with a group of friends mostly from our 50+ Club of the City Hall.  We have been doing this for the last three years.  We have an excellent deal with the price and we appreciate the very professional and friendly services. The Manager Kathy is very approachable and friendly.  She takes extra miles to meet our requests such as organising a TV screen for the Melbourne Cup race specially for us.  As we request, we are seated at a long table outside the dining room area, which provides the atmosphere of space and openness and at the same time complementary to the traditional old charm of the building structure and features. The food is good and the coffee is one of the best in town.”
