    We had a booking late in the evening, which was confirmed by email. But somehow this was lost and they didn't have a record at the door. They were clearly wanting to shut the place early, but did serve us. Once in the service was very good and friendly. Food on the whole very good with one or two bad notes (the saltiness of caramel sauce was ridiculous).

    The Walnut restaurant serves consistently good food and has a nice atmosphere -just the right balance of attention to detail without being overly formal. Two of us had the crab spaghettini and found the chorizo very spicy, almost to the point of being overpowering because it was in such large chunks. Perhaps it could be cut more finely to better blend into this dish as the crab had a beautiful sweet flavour. Possibly some of the best crab that I've eaten here. The baked cheesecake is delicious but deceptive in its richness.

    I have enjoyed several meals at this restaurant. It has a lovely decor and the staff are pleasant and attentive. The food is what draws us back. The meals have always been absolutely delicious.

    The sourdough and oysters for appetisers were very good, as was the bombe Alaska for dessert. The fish of the day was also nice according to my dining guest. The major disappointment,however, and the key driver for this review was the eye fillet, ordered medium-rare but delivered medium-well. I was dying for a steak, but unfortunately the steak was killed in the kitchen before it got to me. It appears the same issue beleaguered the table near us when it was time to settle their bill, disputing the significant charge for the desiccated beef dished up. Though overcooked, my steak was still tender and tasty, and was reason enough for me to not bring attention to it. The wait staff were trainees and for thusly I forgive their inattentiveness, but still, I was not expecting to be pouring my own champagne, nor commence my main meal without an accompanying red wine. For an anniversary dinner It was a disappointing evening. Shame, as it was an establishment I had considered patronising for some time. I presume my partner and I just got them on a bad night.

    Always love coming here for dinner. The menu changes about every three months so I never get bored. It's a lovely small place and there are usually no problems with noise. You can actually have a conversation with others without yelling at each other over some loud terrible music.

    It has been a while since we been back to the Walniut restaurant, and we are never disappointed. Food was fabulous, services was great and ambiance was warm and inviting. Walnut restaurant is always on our list for special occasions.

    The pictures you find online about this place doesn't do it justice. It's a classy environment with older but gorgeous furnishing, decor and chandelier. The food was divine, the service was great and our waiter was adorable. I would give 11 stars if I could. Thank you ????

    The service was first rate. Mat at the bar and Elina at the restaurant. The lamb shank and seafood risotto were fabulous. The desert (we had chocolate cake) was divine (a must try). The setting and environment were just right. A truly satisfying experience.

    My Family love to eat at The Walnut Restaurant because of the delicious food and great, polite staff. The meals are reasonably priced, but on the smaller size of portions.

    We received confirmation for 6.30 pm, only to be rung up and told fully booked and couldn’t get table until 8pm. Arriving from Melbourne and wanting a meal at the hotel, decided to order room service. The worst decision made. Meals were cold even though covered by foil. Chips soggy wet due to condensation of foil. We ate it because hungry and tired. I rang to give feedback. I emphasised I wanted to give feedback for other future guests. Room service offered us a glass of red wine which was nice gesture and when received was terrible. eg watery. Still in room and did not drink. I don’t complain but for a hotel that perceives to have a high quality service and food so disappointing to start of holiday and here for several nights. Also restaurant advertises roast turkey meal xmas in July on posters but on website says chicken is used for Xmas in July. Confusing what your paying for!
