My partner and I dined here on a wednesday evening which just so happened to be their 'locals night'. We are not locals however were made aware that one does not need to be a local to qualify for this fantastic set menu, 2 courses at $35 and 3 courses for $45 with a generous range of options. The meals were some of the most delicious I have ever had and the service was second to none. Will definately be back again.

We had a wonderful meal here. Everything was delicious, particularly the Pork Belly Bites and the s&p squid as starters. We shared a whole baby snapper, which was really good. You must take advantage of Paul's expertise and enjoy one of his excellent cocktails to get you started. The whole experience was topped off by the outstanding service provided by Kane and the team.

We had breakfast there which was excellent with good coffee and fresh orange juice. The variety of dishes was also good. Staff were excellent and the position of the restaurant across the road from the water provided some entertainment of people trying to fish.

We have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions over the years, and have always preferred the lunch offerings to those at dinner. Our last visit, though, was a bit disappointing. The menu for truly lunch options seems to have become more limited. The biggest problem, however, is that the burgers come with black buns. Whoever thought it was a good idea to create these monstrosities in the first place needs their head read. The taste is vastly inferior to any conventional bread, the texture is horrible and they sog up badly when combined with burger ingredients. They certainly do not do justice to the otherwise delicious burger fillings. Thankfully the chips are still good too. Please. please. please ditch the black buns!

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the feedback. We are always looking to offer our customers new experiences; from the food to the wine and cocktails. Sometimes we get it right and sometimes we miss the mark. You will be happy to know that we are now using just the Milk Buns.

Regarding the menu, we have reduced the bigger meal options to make way for lighter burgers and sandwiches. We still have most of menu available for lunch and dinner. To ensure our food is fresh and made fresh, we need do keep a tight menu. However there is still something for everyone.

We hope you will come back to try our new buns soon

Many thanks, Sean

Haven't been to Lakehouse for quite a while, but decided to give new owner a go. On my morning walk popped in for coffee, it was busy with large table of 10 or so plus half a dozen other tables. I just wanted coffee and to look at menu. The coffee is great and service even better. The next visit was with my husband for breakfast, he is a fussy breakfast eater and he was happy , not an easy task sometimes. He doesn't eat eggs, bacon,butter, cereal, yoghurt or milk. I had the Italian Baked Eggs and they were delicious. It good to note that are trying different ideas like wine flight, suckling pig Sunday and for Chinese New Year a Chinese theme. If they go ahead with Happy Hour on Saturdays they should do well. We will return for a lunch and or dinner.
