Great food, nice quite environment. Happy staff (which makes a difference) and nice slow pace. My wife says the coffee was excellent (which says something!!)
would go again.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary and based on a recent review, decided to book our special dinner at the Caucus Restaurant. The staff on duty were extremely friendly and professional and the meal and service was fantastic!!!

There were a number of other couples dining there and I overheard a number of them completing the staff on the quality of service and food.

Definitely worth a visit and my wife and I will definitely return.

We had a great time at Caucus. Arguably fine dining at it's best! We ate the fish of the day, eye fillet steak, and rack of lamb between us. They were cooked to perfection. The flavours were amazing. The meat was top quality. The dessert was equally good. The Panna cotta was an interesting blend of flavours, with honey cheese, meringue and pecan nuts, but was a delicious taste explosion in the mouthThe food was the right amount for fine dining,, leaving us satisfied , but not bloated. They told us that they recently changed their menu. It was a amazing. Would definitely return.

Wow! What a night!! Lovely staff. Amazing food. Nice and tidy restaurant. Everything was great! Drinks constantly topped up. Food was delicious and cooked to perfection (had the rib eye and the lamb rump). Worth the money we paid. Would 100% dine here again

We booked in through first table, we absolutely loved it, service was great friendly staff, we ordered the rib eye and lamb rack both were delicious, although the lamb dish could have done with a little more on the plate, but it was yumm, desserts were delicious as well, overall it was an awesome meal and great staff, highly recommend

Food was well presented. Good food and good service. What I didn’t like was the batter for the fish.

Excellent food and mains selection. There appeared to be a happy hour discount which we weren't told about (am not complaining, but would've been nice to know). Good experience overall, would return.

Really lovely place to dine when staying at the Novotel hotel. Small menu with only one vegetarian option but very tasty and good size portions. Was great to have the option of milk for kids drink as both my boys prefer that to fizzy. Would definitely dine here again and the dessert menu looked delicious.

Food were amazing! The manager treated us enthusiastically, but unfortunately one and two of the other staffs were just poker face all the time, who were not really friendly I have to say. But overall I would like to go again!

Excellent service and food, must try the tiramisu, best I ever had!

- dined at Caucus Restaurant on

The lunch menu was not huge, but more than adequate. Between the 4 of us, we had the club sandwich, the beef burger and two pizzas. The toppings on the pizza were a bit meagre but the burger and club sandwich were fantastic. Drinks menu massive. Service was good and we would be happy to return.

Delicious food, we had the gluten free and vegetarian pumpkin gnocchi and the pork. Both dishes were excellent! Good portions and reasonable priced.
Drinks service could have been a quicker but waitresses were very friendly.
Overall a great experience, would definitively recommend, thank you!

Great food, we had a mix of mains and entree's. All prepared well and delivered hot. We all had empty plates and were very happy with the food. Wine section was good, only let down was they were promoting THE NED wines, and it was $60 a bottle. Their wine list had it from $52. Staff seemed indifferent to this.

Good food, they change my meal to my request and I was very happy with it. Nice and helpful waiter that had a good eye on us throughout the night.

I have already responded to the restaurant separately. The food we had was ok but really the lunchtime menu choices could do with a revamp. Probably that's what other people think too as there was hardly anyone else there. But the waitress was excellent.

Polite waiters, beautiful service. And beautiful food

Very good experience dining here!
They have two menus availble for dinner: the daily one with snacks and light meals and the full one. Both had really tasty options! Service was nice & firendly.

Lunch food was satisfactory. Pleasant & friendly staff. Quality of food was of a medium standard. Reasonably priced for the budget conscious person.

Had a lovely meal here, with tasty dishes of duck for entree which was just lovely with a few stewed cherries and pork fillet for main and some roasted baby carrots, potatoes and sweet potatoes, followed with a VERY light Tiramisu with kahlua cream - delicious and I didn't go home feeling overstuffed, just adequate with great flavours and everything cooked to perfection.Staff attended to our water several times and food came very quickly,

delicious

Thought the food was great and reasonably priced. Not a very extensive menu but tasty and very well presented. Unfortunately the a/c was a bit aggressive and you could not escape the cool breeze from the vents at at table. After a couple of requestes they managed to tone it down a bit. Wine and beer on the pricey side and service enthusiastic but perhaps a bit misguided on the night.

I loved the food and service. I ate salmon king and was perfect, the entree the same and all the staff very lovely. I was having a dinner with my boyfriend and we really had an amazing romantic moment together, all the atmosphere was important.

The food is good but pretty long to prepare during the lunch time. It'd be great to have more options to choose for the lunch

Food was excellent, both mains and desserts, wine was great too.

It was a mother's day celebration and I looked at options for a family of four. I looked at the menu offered by the restaurant. What was shown was the dinner menu. Thinking that the dinner menu would be similar to the lunch one, we went ahead. But the lunch menu was different from the dinner menu. I wish they showed both lunch and dinner menus on the website.

Food was good. My fish and chips were great - the batter was crisp and tasty. The chips and the fish were soft and cooked well. All the family enjoyed our order.

The waiter was kind and attentive. I wish he was present before we left as we were wanting some water before we left, but I felt he did a great job overall.
