    Great food and service. Not had a bad dinner here yet and have been a few times before. Will go back. Thank you. Highly recommend the tempura cauliflower.

    The place was beautiful, food was excellent and service was fine. My only problem was the manager constantly pushing drinks. If my glass is empty, go for it. If I have 4 half full or better drinks between 2 people on my table, I probably don't need another yet.

    The little restaurant was presented beautifully. The wait however was a little ridiculous; we were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time. Staff are friendly however very pushy to keep ordering more food. Waiters are very sales driven, kept pushing for us to order more drinks and said “please order more drinks otherwise my manager will be very upset with me” will not be going back.

    Fantastic welcome and we sat outside for a pre dinner drink in the sun. The $45 locals “feed me” menu which is available on Monday evenings was delicious and there was plenty of food!!! The restaurant was full and they forgot we had not had dessert so gave us a free drink because of the wait. We will certainly return.

    My husband and I hadn't dined at The Argus for some time. We had been given a couple of good reviews by friends on their recent visits. Although most of the reviews that I had read had shown dissappointment with lengthy delays in service we cannot agree as the staff on duty yesterday were both attentive and very efficient. Julie came across as a very competent Manager. Our food was of a good standard and wine list well thought out. We won't leave it as long for our next visit, we had an excellent afternoon, thankyou to staff both frontvand back of house.

    Disappointing dining experience. Argus was recommended to me by accomodation in Hepburn as place to enjoy couples dinner. I made note on booking it was our anniversary, but from the get go we hadn’t even been assigned a table, let alone staff making sure was to be a special night. Food very small for the price too. Won’t be going back

    It was our first time to The Argus. We came on a Monday night. Didn’t know what to order from the a la cart menu and Jeremy recommended that we go for “feed me” which usually was $65 but only $45 for tinight. We got 3 entrees, 2 mains and 2 desserts, all to share. There were so much food for both of us. We couldn’t even finish our mains. The drinks, food and service were all excellent and amazingly best value for money. Will definitely come back when we visit Hepburn again.

    Nice restaurant in Hepburn Sorings. Had the ‘feed me’ menu which provided a good selection of their share plates.

    High quality and delightful dining experience. Service was exceptional and friendly. Food was very good and wine list was varied, with a good range of local wines (and gins). Definitely worth a visit if you’re staying in Hepburn Springs, but I strongly suggest you don’t drive.

    For these prices, service needs to be slicker. Barman was an absolute delight however and utterly professional. Beautiful surrounds and hotel, small changes could improve things ie not removing one plate before other diner has finished, being delivered bill before dessert had been served.

About the restaurant

Our restaurant The Argus is currently going through a restyling process and we are moving away from our fine dining roots. For our new beginnings, we will be embracing a contemporary country dining experience with a focus on local wine and produce. The new menus will be introduced at the end of July; however, in the meantime, our doors are open our fireplaces are lit and we hope to see you here to sample our changing menus.
