I keep coming back to this place. Just love it here. It has a really nice atmosphere and vibe. You can take a seat overlooking the lake and have your breakfast. So many people jogging, walking their dog or rowing outside and it's just all happening. The space inside is great and nicely decorated and clean. Lots of outside seating too. The food is great and there are lots of options. The portion size and quality are generous. Coffee is fantastic. As soon as you sit, they take the drink order which I loved because your coffee will come to you pretty much as soon as you are ready to order your breakfast. The service is fast and staff are super friendly and accommodating. Sharine was a total angel and so helpful when I forgot my card one day. Really appreciated the help.

It was the worst meal I have ever had Char Grilled Meat tough as and bread all through the dish mixed with vegetables and spicy cost was $39 not worth the money my friend had Scotch fillet steak and was better but to much cauliflower and not enough potatoes. Last time I was there I had toasted sandwich and no butter on the inside or mayonnaise always so dry. So loud and heavy metal music playing. It's a shame I have enjoyed several meals here but this time it really was a no go again for me very disappointed.

We went to this restaurant twice on our short trip to Ballarat. The kangaroo steak, scotch fillet are highly recommended. Family-friendly restaurant right next to lake Wendouree, a lot of parking. Will definitely visit again.

This restaurant is cross the road from Lake Wendouree and you can see the lake from the dining area. The place was packed and at first got my expectations high but the food was pretty average and no standout flavors. I was tempted to order the kangaroo steak but I didn't because the menu said " prepared medium rare" and I like my steak medium well. I ordered the chicken Parmigiana which was pretty blah, I ate it because I was hungry, the fries were really good and fresh. My son had the chicken nuggets and ate it all. My aunt found the beer battered Barramundi to be good. I had a latte and it was really good.
So if you hungry and don't care about fine dining and just want something to eat, go for it otherwise dine somewhere else. Service was fine and the bathroom were clean.

A very enjoyable lunch on New Year's Eve before returning to Melbourne. Highly recommend the kangaroo steak which was cooked to perfection.

Great looking pub with amazing lake views. The food came out really quick and looked great but was such a let down with having a really bland taste to it.

Great place, been coming for years, off and on lately due to moving out of town. Nice atmosphere, good food and terrific location on beautiful Lake Wendouree. Staff very helpful - last visit was for a family function and we were well looked after. Thanks.

We dropped in unexpectedly on a packed Saturday night without a table booking, with little expectation we'd be able to get a meal and were rapt that we were able to be accommodated after a short wait even though they were fully booked. Service, food and ambience were excellent. Dessert highlight was the sticky date pudding. Thank you!

Our band went there for lunch after a band competition. The food was great. I had the kangaroo fillets, and they were excellent. One of our members had the gluten-free pasta and really enjoyed it

Called in at late notice on '$20 parma' night. No problems getting a table and friendly, attentive staff !!
Schnitzel was perfectly cooked, juicy with crunchy crumbs! Chips were delicious... not my kinda gravy, but tasty!
Very enjoyable and affordable evening... maybe next time I'll also order a salad!

Thank you for looking after us so well - we loved our dinner and everyone commented on how great the food and service was.

Was recommended to us due to the gluten free options - which they have a lot of GFO on the menu. The location and atmosphere was great (clean and bright).

Food was a little underwhelming, especially with the presentation of the kangaroo fillet and pureed spiced carrot with wilted spinach (looked watery and splatterd actoss half the plate). The Pumpkin salad was thrown together quite haphazardly (majority of the Pumpkin in one spot and then a random potato rosti at the bottom). NOTE: photos attached were done in a 'stylistic' to make the dishes look more appealing.

Service staff were pleasant and helpful ensuring there were enough serviettes and cutley at the table.

A fav place. Always take Ballarat visitors here. Good selection on the menu for breakfast lunch or dinner and kids menu. Staff are very attentive without being overbearing and always positive attitudes. There's the bistro as well as outdoor area to side of hotel. Always clean n well presented. After dinner a sunset walk is delightful.

I am extremely disappointed. I ordered a trio of dips, but did not or would not expect something like this to be served. The dips are ordinary; however, the flat bread is tastes like 3 day old stale pizza base.
I had one of the wait staff come over and I mentioned my concerns over the quality of the meal. He blankly looked at me and walked off. 20 minutes later I am still sitting here and no service.
The other meal was just a poorly toasted sandwich with yellow chips. Very unappealing to the appetite.
Just don't waste you time and money here

Food and staff were great to 1 exception.
Had a Thai beef salad that had nothing to do with Thai. No Thai basil, no palm sugar, no fish sauce, the sauce was balsamic.

Best place for breakfast ?.
Kids love pancakes ? and I love veg omelette. Enjoy your breakfast with the best view of lake wendouree. Omelette is vegetarian so it is halal friendly, for Pancake we were not sure about vanilla ice cream so we ordered without it but still taste the best. Excellent friendly service.

Not the best food I've had here... Quiet Sunday early dinner, my family and I were dissapointed but were compensated. They don't know if we don't tell them!
I hope next time its a lot better.

Nice spot to sit outside for a brunch, tons of nearby parking. Food was good, service prompt and unobtrusive. QR codes are on the tables so you can order online but it was a bit of a nightmare so we had to go to the bar and ordered there. Overall a good experience.

Fries was different style but delicious.
Kids steak was raw!
Twenty percent public holiday surcharge was a bit excessive!
Good quality coffee.
Friendly staffs but too busy.
Great lake view.

Been going here for years and after my last 2 experiences I won't ever be back, which is unfortunate. I'm unsure if they've changed chefs but the food is disgusting. The salt n pepper squid used to be in flour now it's crumbed and tastes worse than the stuff you buy in freezer section at the supermarket. For $30 each meal you'd want decent food... Parma was also gross they taste like they'd been cooked in bad oil and the Cesar salad was average.
