Nestled in a beautiful setting of Victoria Park, you can find the Gardener's Lodge Cafe, which is a restored sandstone heritage building.

Originally built in the 1888, the Gothic-styled Gardener's Lodge was once a main entrance to the University of Sydney and the former home of the University of Sydney's groundskeeper.

Surrounded by a beautiful lakeside park setting, there is nothing better than enjoying the food in such a relaxing environment. Additionally, as the outdoor seating area is quite spacious, it is great for young families to park their prams on the side. Kids menu is also available.

When the seafood lingiune arrived, I couldn't wait to taste the food as its look was so tempting. The dish came with a good mix of prawns, scallops, fish of the day, herbs and tomatoes ($19.95); the flavours were right and its taste was delicious. It completely satisfied my taste buds. The lovely environment did play a great part in enhancing my appetite.

If it is a rainy day or the weather is a bit chilly, you can pop inside the cafe to stay dry and keep yourself warm while enjoying the food. It is certainly worth spending time inside as the Gardeners Lodge won the Office of the Valuer General Heritage Award from the Australian Property Institute NSW.

Happy dining!
