Excellent! I was pregnant at the time and they revised the menu for me. Great pricing and they were able to assist us and work with our budget. They also organised a gondola entrance for us and the photos were incredible. Everyone of us guest loved the food and each table had their own waiter.

A huge Thanks to Emily and team for the excellent service. Everything was absolutely beautiful, scenery, food, service, friendliness.. Emily is a true professional, helpful, friendly, organised, positive, accommodating and with a "can-do" attitude that made the night special. A huge Thanks once again. We have had lots of compliments.

They were alright, everything was a bit too much by the book. It was quite hard getting in contact with them but everything else was quite efficient.

I loved The Terrace. The venue looks beautiful and different both day and night, the setting is magical. The staff were fantastic, particularly Emily Major who was helpful in every stage of the planning. The staff were easy to work with, and very accommodating for all the tweaks and things we wanted to set up. The food was delicious, and beautifully presented.

We had our wedding at The Terrace on the weekend and couldn't recommend it more highly. The venue is truly stunning, and the team are all absolutely amazing, especially Emily, the wonderful wedding/functions coordinator who did an absolutely outstanding job of making sure everything ran smoothly. Our guests all loved the venue, and we received a lot of positive comments about the delicious food and wonderful staff.

The venue was beautiful and the food was amazing. The communication was really great. We were able to go in and set things up a few days before the wedding which we found really helpful. There were lots of different options on how we could set up the room which was great.

We had our reception at The Terrace and it was amazing. Our wedding coordinator Emily was fantastic and made sure everything went to plan so we didn't have to worry about a thing. The food was devine and our guests raved about it. I loved the indoor/outdoor feel this venue provides it is just perfect.

Right from the our very first enquiry, we have had exceptional service from everybody at The Terrace. We appreciated the flexibility that was offered to help us achieve our vision. Everything seemed to run so smoothly and nothing was too much effort for the staff. The food was exceptional!

Wow. The venue is gorgeous, spacious and the food delicious. But the absolute best part is Katrina, the venue coordinator. She was available, caring, and so easy to work with. I had confidence that the day would run smoothly due to her, and was so thankful for her input and flexibility when planning the day. An absolutely wonderful person to work with.

We had our ceremony there. It was a bit touch and go with weather but we had a backup indoor venue. Well managed. Went to plan and ran smoothly! Couldn't fault them

The Terrace Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne  

Hi Lucie. Thanks for taking the time to write a review, however I think you have the wrong venue as here at The Terrace we do not offer ceremonies and we are an indoor venue. Maybe you had your ceremony outside in the Royal Botanic Gardens?

Jess our co-ordinator at the Terrace was brilliant. She had everything covered! The food got lots of great comments. The fairy tree in the middle of the Terrace set the room off. They included a lot of extras other places didn't. A beautiful place for a wedding.

The Terrace Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne  

Thanks Lisa - you were both such a wonderful couple to work with! We hope you and Borce have a wonderful life together :) x

We had our ceremony at the Tecoma Pavilion which was perfect size to fit our guests in (about 30), and also had wonderful views of the city for photo opportunities.

A beautiful setting on the lake, I knew The Terrace was going to be where I had my wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for Jess, our wedding coordinator. We felt very looked after and the food and drinks were fantastic.

Food, drinks and venue fantastic. Great value for money. The location is unreal and to look out over the water amazing.

The night was amazing but you have to do a lot to make the venue not look like a cafe but if you have the budget and time it can come up looking perfect. Perfect for us. We loved it

Lee and the staff were so helpful and went above and beyond on the day. One waiter stood in the rain for over an hour directing Taxis in and out of the venue after the event. The location was stunning, we can't fault anything.

An old heritage cottage tucked away in the Botanic Gardens. It was a perfect place to celebrate with our 60 guests.
