Cuisine: Degustation, Modern European
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

Setting up camp at what was Wine Chambers, The General offers an unforgettable dining experience centred around contemporary food.

The interior is as grand as it sounds. With its enormous windows, towering ceilings and cream walls, it has a distinct Georgian feel but with a modern twist. Its white and dark-brown colour scheme is minimalist and classy; the perfect place for a special occasion.

The menu delivers on exquisite taste and presentation. Start with some delicate tuna tartar before moving on to the free range pulled chicken that comes with seasonal greens and garlic yoghurt. The halloumi dish is complete with pumpkin hummus whilst the hanger steak certainly won't leave you hungry!

Indulge in the locally sourced produce with a glass of fine NZ wine and be sure to have your camera at the ready; the food wouldn't be out of place in a museum!

Dinner was a set menu. Entree- Prawn was average but duck parfait is good. For main we ordered Fish of the day- it was trevally with pumpkin sauce, pistachios and brussels sprouts- fish was average. Then for dessert we try one of each- chocolate fondue- that looks like it comes out in a microwave with ice cream on top. Pavlova taste eggy- grocery bought taste.
I could have attached the photo in here but no option for that. Ambiance was ok. Not much selection or option on their menu. Thank goodness it’s on first table because it’s not worth it to try on a regular price.

Minimal menu choices made it easy to choose, food was good maybe a little on the salty side. Service was fine but lacked a bit of welcoming attitude.

Very disappointed. Entree was OK but I like a 5-10min break between courses. Waiter brought main out before entree plates were cleared and without asking if we were ready. Which leads to my main. My beef ragu was very dry. And waiter came to ask if I was ready for dessert before I had finished my main. I don't like to be rushed through my meal.

My mum and I thought the food was delicious and the dessert was just right! Would come here again and bring the hubby. Highly recommend.

The entree was not bad at all. The main was really good chicken and flavour. The steak was tough from my partner. And the choice of dessert was apple crumble or cheese platter (im not sure if the cheese belongs there). The dessert doesn’t make you feel “wow” imagine green apple diced add sugar and cook, then just add crumbs and small scoop of vanilla ice cream.
