A few words from our clients…
“Thank you for a delicious evening… the food (especially), the producers, the venue, the people, the vibe. Loved it all. As did Sue… like me, she didn’t balk at the ticket price, she knows a good thing… as a non cook, she is learning plenty about food through these sorts of events.
So chuffed to see Redbelly oranges on the menu… have shared via Instagram etc. Len is so happy. Thank you.
The cassoulet was superb, too. And those sausages with Sam’s pork. Wow. I enjoyed really good bangers in London last year (tasted like roast pork in a sausage casing!) and have been searching for good ones ever since… I plan to write and article about them.
See you again very soon.
Warmest regards, Liz”
Just a note to say how much my son and I enjoyed last evening. Please pass my congratulations to all concerned. We appreciated the venue, the music, the scrumptious food and wine, the friendly helpful staff and the folk we met at our table. Thank you all very much. I will never forget holding that truffle and breathing in its warm glorious perfume”….. Marion
“Great place, good food. The view is intoxicating. Great Sunday arvo coffee spot.”
“My wife and I took a party of eight relatives from Sydney to the Arboretum for New Year. We had a wonderful night. Service, food, wine and the setting made for a tremendous night. In fact, next morning (late!) we all sat around and discussed the evening and agreed that it would be difficult to find fault. For the last twenty years we have done the trek up to Sydney for New Year’s because surely Canberra couldn’t compete? Well this year it proved the knockers wrong and excelled. Well done and thank you and your staff.”… Chris
“I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thankyou for organising a wonderful event for my birthday on Saturday night. Sameera was a fantastic host. No request was a problem for him and everything ran beautifully. The food was lovely and the service was great. Myself and all the guests had a wonderful night. I would recommend it to anyone considering having a function at the Arboretum.”…Jacki
“I could not be happier with the services provided by the staff at Ginger Catering for our formal dinner. Throughout the entire process, from the initial viewing of the venue right through until the actual event, no task was too difficult for the Ginger team. Throughout the process we worked primarily with Kim and Marta, who were extremely helpful and accommodating. The on the night staff led by Sam were also incredible, going above and beyond their required duties to help set up banners, provide an award table, rig up some last minute extra lighting and find a lectern. The night went incredibly well, and we have received nothing but positive feedback about the staff, venue and catering. Thank you so much for all your hard work, we truly appreciate all of your efforts. I will have no hesitation returning to the Arboretum in the future, and highly recommend your services to anyone looking for a great event.”
“Apart from the fantastic view from the Arboretum, the cafe offers a fantastic and tasty array of dishes. Really yummy, well priced food that is unusual for a tourist attraction. Great choice of healthy options plus the best pastry pies etc. I’ve seen in Canberra. So something for everyone. Locals choose to meet here to experience the efficient and friendly service. ”
“I went with a friend for lunch and really enjoyed the experience. The window seat was great but you get a view from all tables. I liked the that they had proper table linen (and not just paper napkins). The service was attentive and helpful. The menu was short but varied – there was something for everyone – plus some daily specials. My blue eyed cod was cooked beautifully. The kale salad was also very fresh and delicious. I especially liked the unusual patterned dinnerware which the food was served on. Overall it was an extremely pleasant lunch and I’d certainly recommend it to take friends or visitors to Canberra. “
