We both had the salmon and it was very nice. I followed up with the chocolate brownie which was just the best. Service was very friendly and prices were reasonable at $25 / $10. Only here for one night but would eat here again.

The chef has been here for a while and she is truly wonderful. Breakfast is always great and the bircher muesli is a must. IN the evening there is al ways some fabulous local produce on offer including a lovely scallop entree. I had grilled...salmon for a main and it was beautifully cooked.More

We were staying at the Park Ridge Retreat and were continually amazed at the quality of the dishes we had on each of the 3 occasions we dined there for dinner and twice for breakfast, the food, the presentation, and the service was top notch....This place is a gem, i highly recommend it.More

The Retreat restaurant in the Park Ridge Retreat motel is one of those surprisingly high quality food restaurant you sometimes find in country motels. It seems to be run separately from the motel. The decor is attractive-functional; not intimate. Service was friendly and obliging both...at dinner and breakfast. For dinner there's a reasonable selection - seafood entrees and mains one of each meat and a vegetarian: the lamb and the duck were delightfully well cooked and presented. Prices are high $20s to high $30s. Worth staying in rather than looking elsewhere. Breakfast was fine too.More

The food was super yummy! Small restaurant with a lovely garden view. One chef, one waitress with amazing food. Perfectly located after driving from Sydney.

We stayed at the motel for 2 nights and dined here on the first night. I reviewed the restaurant on the Park Ridge motel site. The food was excellent and the service from Olivia our waitress, great. The food was well prepared and plated and...each course could not be faulted. It was disappointing that there were not more people there as it was such a surprisingly good dining experience. If you visit Gerringong - dine here!More

This restaurant was an unexpected gem. It has a comprehensive menu and nightly chef's specials. It also does the room service catering, but I would rather attend here. Ordered Surf and Turf with creamy garlic sauce. The steak was tender and cooked exactly as ordered,...with good sized prawns and lovelly sauce. I have to make a special mention of the host, Olivia, who was very attentive and efficient! Meals arrived in a timely manner and food quality excellent and well priced.More

This restaurant in the park ridge retreat is quite something. Quite small but well laid out. The hostess was an absolute treat and helped tremendously with menu variations. The menu is quite good for a small restaurant but the entrees and mains we had were...excellent. The evening deal of getting a free bottle of wine was a bonus when ordering at least two courses. On a cold winters night when stepping outside was uncomfortable this place really surprised. Give it a a go.More

This restaurant is a little surprise packet. The food was pretty good . We had a tasting plate of the entrees and the panna cotta for dessert. The service was very good.
