    Poor workmanship and dodgy execs does not make me want to recommend these guys to anyone. Unimpressed by the quality of labour and the way they tried to blame a third party. Not good.

    Not sure how lomond, below, had such a poor experience! Went here this arvo for lunch with girlfriends and we indulged in the lunch specials. They were reasonably priced and generous servings. Would've liked more veggies in our curries, fried rice and noodles and the meat quantities were pretty sparing. However, altogether it was a positive experience, with lovely interior decor and friendly & helpful staff. I can understand how this might become a local establishment.

    A fine dining lunch for a three course meal at only $22?? Well, okay, fine dining in training, but still, The Apprentice is pretty good value if you are after something substantial and classy while on a budget. Entrees, mains and dessert were plated beautifully, with microherbs. Because it was a training restaurant, my partner and I felt obliged to rate everything. My salmon carpaccio was fresh and had a great mix of classic flavours: fennel, dill and parsley. Hubby's warm duck salad wasn't warm but was pretty delish. Main was crab tagliatelle and unfortunately the crab was lost amongst the heap of handmade pasta. It was pretty bland and flavourless to be honest. Hubby's snapper was cooked perfectly but again, not really seasoned well. Dessert was fantastic. I ordered a Zabaione (which I had no idea about until that day), and hubby ordered the Tropical Trio. Dessert was by far my best and favourite course. A lightly whipped mousse-like concoction, with hints of rose water, watermelon and crunchy pistachio. Mmmm something I would definitely reorder. Hubby wasn't too fussed on his dessert. It was a bit strange, with a shot of thick, grey banana milkshake, melted mango sorbet and a tooth-breaker: chocolate and coconut rough (mate, was it tough!). Anyway, we were rather forgiving, because of course, this place is a training institution. But the food was worth the $22, but you wouldn't want to pay more. The training instructor was lovely and the students were all under a lot of pressure to impress! Definitely worth the visit.
