For a Michelin star restaurant it was okay. The decor on the inside was plain Jane compared to other fine dining, no real wow appeal. The views were good, after halfway through my meal I manage to see a small section of the lake. The wait staff there were impeccable never let my glass go empty or even half full. The food was delicious however very salty, it was good that the staff were on top of the water as I drank a lot! And they treated my boyfriend on his 21st to a nice special lemon dessert. For fine dining it’s definitely one of the best in the area, but wouldn’t say it’s the best in Melbourne.
Worrh the drive, worth the expense. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Each dish we had was a delightful. culinary experience. The ambiance of the restaurant is casually elegant and stylish. Highly recommended.
Must go before you die. Should get a Michelin star or 2. I could speak in half of the restaurant as I haven’t stayed there. However... Food fantastic, staff were really on top of there game here. We had a 10 month baby with us and they were super nice and friendly to us. Even a bar tender went out of his way to offer our baby a strawberry just out of kindness. Book early is my only advice. Tried to book 2 weeks in advance but could only get lunch. Lunch still good you can see the lake and views too.
Enjoyed Christmas dinner with the family here. 5 STAR EXPERIENCE. The wait staff are nothing short of world class. My family had various challenging dietary requirements, the restaurant handled it without breaking a sweat. The establishment belongs in the French countryside. We hope to return soon and enjoy a stay in one of their wonderful guest rooms.
Lake House has some interesting information on why Australia is called the land down under?
Australia is known as 'the land Down Under' for its position in the southern hemisphere. The discovery of Australia began when European explorers searched for land under the continent of Asia. Before Australia was discovered, it was known as Terra Australis Incognita the unknown southern land.
