Lochiel House - User Reviews


This restaurant is amazing to say the very least. The new owners, Jessica Quagliata and Wayne Jenkins have made a fantastic, relaxing and very inviting dinning experience. I was overly impressed with the service, not only were the wait staff friendly, their suggestion’s made my meal unforgettable. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Want a brunch that will leave you full through to dinner? Go here. Want a Sunday family lunch over an amazing roast with all the trimming? Go here! Want a romantic dinner for a birthday, anniversary or just because? Go here! So whatever the occasion is and believe me, you don't need one, get moving to Lochiel House, you won't be  18/06/2013

Recently celebrated our anniversary at Lochiel. An awesome experience. Service exceptional with superb food. If we have an observation it is that we would have liked a selection of side dishes with our mains; ie green salad etc. Hey I'm nitpicking about perfection. The coffee was superb and am still trying to duplicate the taste with the blend Lochiel uses from the coffee warehouse. To cap it all I got a hug from Monique! Will be back; if only for another hug!review  15/03/2012

Kate & Peg:

Lochiel House is without exception, exceptional! We discovered this delightful restaurant in a charming old historic house by chance several years ago when we commuted regularly between the Central West and Sydney. We can honestly say that it is impossible to have a bad experience here. Food (sourced locally) is fantastic, and chef Tony Milroy and his team are real artists with its presentation. Co-owner Monique Maul is a truly delightful lady; warm, friendly and hospitable; a perfect hostess. Wines are beautfully matched to the food, service and value are excellent and atmosphere is great - local artists are also supported as their work is displayed for diner's enjoyment while they dine; some of the artworks are available for purchase. Lochiel fully deserves its two hats. Congratulations, Monique, Tony and team - you've earned it! As the Terminator says, "We'll be back!"review  27/11/2011
