    We were looking forward to a typical fine dining experience but were disappointed. The service (thanks Maddi) was attentive, but the menu was not inspiring on the written page and what was served was no better. The slow cooked pork belly and mushrooms did not gel together and the octopus tough and charred enough to taste burnt… The wagu had little taste and the toothfish and corn was only acceptable. We left buoyed by a pleasant cheese platter but overall felt let down..

    A special restaurant for a special occasion. We chose Darley's to celebrate our anniversary and we weren't disappointed. We chose a beautiful French pinot noir from their extensive wine list and the three course dining experience is set menu only. Wonderfully prepared and served food with fairly attentive service. The seating inside is cozy while the outside seating makes the most of the views.

    The Food was great, but we were not told before we got there that it was a set 3 course menu and very expensive. Unfortunately although the food we got was great quality it was very a very small quantity.

    Darleys is n the most beautiful house - you are taken to a cosy, elegant atmosphere when you step inside. The food was exquisite, the service was excellent and it was a really lovely experience. Highly recommend.

    Lovely evening. When we first arrived we were seated at a table with a view of lattice which was a little awkward however when we requested a different table they were happy to accommodate. Food was really good, well balanced, good textural experience and came out well spaced. My husbands lamb was slightly overdone but they very quickly replaced with a med/rare version which he thoroughly enjoyed. Dessert was sublime. A really wonderful experience- definitely be back.

    Unfortunately our trip to Darley’s was really disappointing. It took 40 minutes for the waiter to serve us once we were seated, whilst couples around us were served promptly and in a friendly manner. Food was excellent but served very slowly. All in all, the service was well below the standard we would expect in a restaurant of this reputation.

    The dining experience at Darley's was superb. You felt very welcome as soon as you walked through the door, and Pablo, the maitre de, was amazing. The quality of the food was excellent with only the best produce used. The menu was innovative and blended some unusual combinations, and suited those who have a leaning towards gourmet cuisine. The ambience of the dining space was sumptuous, with heritage features completing the experience of dining in a beautiful historic homestead.

    Our seat was on top of some mechanical vibration and the whole table and chairs vibrated throughout.

    The food was excellent but the service was moderate. I also requested a window view when I booked some time ago and was told it depended on the availability on the night. Explained that it was a combination of wedding anniversaries totalling 100 years and we had chosen Lillianfels for this celebration We also wanted to stay the night but we’re not told of the deals if you had dinner at Darleys and breakfast Disappointing. Last time we were there it was excellent. We will go again because of the food and location

    The wine we ordered was very slow at being replenished in our glasses which unfortunately meant we left the restaurant with a third of a $140 bottle not consumed. We naturally took it with us! Not the best way to compliment the wine & food together.

    We found the setting amazing . Beautiful decor. The Welcome by the maître D was not very welcoming which actually put a negative feeling over the evening .all the other Staff were lovely . The wine was totally overpriced. At least 150% mark up on wines which is a shame.

    We enjoyed a most wonderful evening at Darleys - the service was excellent, the food was outstanding and the atmosphere was perfection. All of the wait staff were so lovely, especially with our chatty children, and our party of 7 was thrilled to be seated in a private room. We cannot wait to come again.
