Love this place for food and ambience. Recently hired venue for my son's wedding. Meet all expectations. The place is roomy for dining and dancing too. Got clean toilet as well and catching garden scenery for great photo ops. Great customer service and have security guards as well.
My partner took me here for my birthday with friends and this place was just awesome. The food was an all you eat buffet a fantastic range of food and desserts to choose from and it was really delicious. You can also choose on the menu food to order as well but minimal but the buffet was more than enough. The drinks (cocktails) were just divine. The staff were super friendly and they made you so welcome it was just magnificent. The place was just warm, cosy and so inviting the ambience was great. I'm so happy I came here as it was my first time experience and it was just awesome. Thank you Half Acre for the delicious food, mouth watering cocktails and super friendly professional service. It just an amazing experience.
A hidden little treasure. Beautiful set up, perfect for a small function. The food was epic. I didn’t realize how delicious vegetables could actually be. Everything was flavorsome. The staff were so lovely. Good customer service is hard come by these days. All the staff had a smile on their face. We all had a great experience.
