The presentation of the food every time I have been to Brambles is beautiful. However the menu is not changed often enough in ,my opinion. If it was I would go more often. its like the chef has a limited repertoire of dishes and they try to change small bits of one to make it look like a new menu. Tasty though. Décor lovely.

Ok food but a bit pricey if not for the early bird and the early bird is a bit lacking on choice. Otherwise spacious restaurant and comfortable with nice staff.

My husband and I dined in Brambles restaurant last weekend. The setting is absolutely stunning with comfortable luxurious chairs, an amazing chandelier and mirrors surrounding. Plenty of parking outside too. We both ordered garlic mushrooms which were delicious and served with garlic aliol and a balsamic side salad. Not a hint of grease to be seen and beautifully presented. For mains hubby had chicken done in a cream sauce with potatoes and a sweet potato crisp. A good sized portion and he enjoyed every bite. I went for the veggie pasta, a tomato based roast veg dish which was the perfect size for hungry food lover. Two glasses of Chardonnay and two cokes finished off our meal. We are happy to recommend Brambles to anyone. Even the staff were top notch x

Visited on a Saturday evening surprised to see the restaurant half full. Having being aware of the cafe end of the chain this was our first time in the restaurant. We were greeted by friendly efficient staff and brought to our table. The bread was delicious and as my partner is allergic to nuts the waiter offered to source another type of bread. We chose garlic mushrooms stuffed with cream cheese and fiery chicken wings both excellent quality and delicious. Mains were an amazing fillet steak cooked well done as requested to perfection holding its moisture and flavour, accompanied with a side order of mushrooms and onions, the other main was duck presented on Savoy cabbage with a side order of the best lyonnaise potato's. Unfortunately the boxy that accompanied the steak although inviting was stone cold. We were brought a replacement which was very poor piping hot but a terrible flavour, not wanting to complain we left it to one side and pointed out to our excellent waiter that the rest of the food was excellent but the boxy was dreadful. We chose desserts which we were told were compliments of the house as a gesture for the returned boxy. Brambles are known for having the most amazing desserts, I dine frequently in their Jervis St outlet. I chose Pavlova which was just ok, my guest chose pannacotta which came in a small orange juice glass decorated with fruits and what we thought was a biscuit crumble which turned out to be hazelnuts. We returned the dessert and received a replacement minus the nuts. There was flavour in the pannacotta but it was solid in the small glass and had the texture of a set jelly, that aside we had an enjoyable night. The majority of the food was very good let down by a cold boxty and just ok desserts.

My go to spot for a meal which won't let you down. Staff are lovely and they are really accomodating for children. We brought our little one for a meal on a Wednesday evening and we were very impressed. Their early bird is amazing value and we will definitely be back! Rib Eye steak was gorgeous and my Chicken in a mushroom sauce was amazing. Their Desserts are great and I'd love to find out what coffee they use. Yum

What a let down. For the first time in years of going to restaurants we had to send our meals back because they were served cold. The pepper sauce had a skin on it because it was lying so long.
Meals were replaced, Once again the steaks were over cooked, sauce tepid and the chips were reheats.
Service wise the lady was doing her best, there was not enough staff employed. One girl serving about 30 customers, is what I call understaffed. It's a pity because the decor is nice, but if a chef cannot get steak and chips right on two attempts then it's not worth eating in. We are very easy going diners but on this occasion Brambles fell way short of the mark.
