Lunch in the palms. Very friendly service with nice food. Served wine from their own vineyard in Tasmania. Really enjoyed our lunch even though we were both feeling poorly.
Great Place.

We ate there for lunch and had the smoked marlin salad - which is the best smoked fish we have ever eaten. Highly recommend this!

The gardens are absolutely beautiful and definitely worth a visit. The food at the Hidden Spirit Cafe & Grill was very good but overpriced.
