"I was a guest at the CSO breakfast last Friday and it went brilliantly. The whole event, including the food service, ran smoothly. All the guests at my table, including a vegan, loved the quality and variety of the food and had a lovely time."
I recently dined at the Conservatory with my husband and friends and have to say it was one of the tastiest meals I have had in a long time. The other three people felt the same way too. The food was beautifully presented and there was just so much flavour in everything we had. The service was also very attentive and overall it was a wonderful outing. We will definitely be returning.
An absolutely stunning view was a real highlight. The food was also superb, the wine list local, and the service mostly good. Lovely lunch!
Thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful gruyere soufflé and mushrooms (and a side of yummy bacon) with the Sunrise fruit juice cocktail as part of the Monet Impressions breakfast special. Very tasty and the juice was refreshing and sweet. Great food, great service and views to match. Definitely on my list to visit again
I went with a friend for lunch and really enjoyed the experience. The window seat was great but you get a view from all tables. I liked the that they had proper table linen (and not just paper napkins). The service was attentive and helpful. The menu was short but varied - there was something for everyone - plus some daily specials. My blue eyed cod was cooked beautifully. The kale salad was also very fresh and delicious. I especially liked the unusual patterned dinnerware which the food was served on. Overall it was an extremely pleasant lunch and I'd certainly recommend it to take friends or visitors to Canberra.
