Delish on a dish
Went to HSG for a pre-show dinner. Service was super friendly and efficient. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. My cocktail (Gin Mule) was yum and cheap at $13.50 & good quality bubbles ????. Lovely atmosphere sitting outdoors in the garden. Thank you to Dion too such a gracious host!


Great food and good value
Food is very "accessable" at HSG, familiar with clever twists and presentations. Interesting and creative, always impeccably presented.


Absolutely outstanding, highly recommend


New Menu
We went out this evening to try food from the new menu. She chose white options and I went for red. Wonderful flavours as always. So lucky that this is my local.


The staff are both friendly & professional. Very knowledgeable about what each dish contains and the meal was cooked perfectly and beautifully presented. Overall it was a lovely experience.


Delicious food
Lovely outside dining area, attentive staff and yummy food


Amazing local food, friendly faces and warm atmosphere
HSG is a beautiful spot of heaven in Bundaberg. The location is just steeped in natural beauty. The ability to eat undercover or out in the open is wonderful.

The food is locally sourced, responsibility used and served with a smile from all staff.

Dion and his family have made HSG a perfect place to celebrate, relax or just have a lovely meal with that someone special!

Highly recommend and to follow on Facebook keep up to date with offers and events.


Amazing food & service




Showcases our foodie region in a beautiful setting
I have had the pleasure of dining here on many occasions and also attending the private dinners which have been amazing. At night in the fairy lights, accompanied with good wine, great food and attentive service, that's why I love coming back!


The freshest produce available
Bundaberg has some of the freshest produce I've ever eaten, and HSG showcases this in spades. Fantastic menu, great staff and a beautiful and relaxed setting to enjoy dinner with friends. I absolutely recommend this to anyone!


A wonderful place to dine or hold an event!
Top service and delicious meals! Family friendly with gluten free meals too!! Highly recommend HSG and we have enjoyed it there every time. See you again soon!


We love visiting "The Gardens " when we are in Bundaberg. Lovely atmosphere. Great menu with lots of healthy options, friendly staff and lots of space to move around.


I truly believe that people with passion make a venue what it is. Dion is an amazing chef with a family and team alongside him that make the hsg dining experience second to none. People with passion ... you won't find more than at hsg. My favourite place to dine in bundaberg.


Amazing team, Amazing food Amazing atmosphere..AAA+


Always a fantastic experience
We have been to HSG At The Gardens a number of times and always enjoyed ourselves and delighted in the food being served. We love it so much, we recently hosted our wedding reception there as well and this was a fantastic experience from the first enquiry through until our big day! Do yourself a favour and check them out!


A fabulous place for any occasion.
The menu, staff and setting at HSG are all factors that make it one of our favourite places to dine. Whether we bring our children or for a quiet dinner for two, it caters for a range of diners in a gorgeous garden setting. Dion is a host par excellence and does his utmost to ensure you have a wonderful evening.


A true delight in Bundaberg's leafy surrounds !
Amazing food, coffee and treats all in the tranquil surrounds of bush gardens. Set in one of Bundaberg's most naturally beautiful suburbs, HSG At The Gardens offers the diner a simply elegant experience. Friendly staff, prompt service, and the highest quality food prepared by experienced chefs.

One of the best
Highly recommend HSG - The Gardens - fist class food and ambiance , I have been on a number of occasions for their special wine and dinner experience and have always come away feeling incredibly lucky to have had the pleasure of tasting the best food, beautifully presented, great company and exceptional staff. This is first class in every way . Always receive a warm welcome . The breakfast, lunch and dinner options are also excellent.


Wonderful atmosphere and delicious fresh local produce.


A memorable experience
This was a beautiful location for our event. It's a pretty tough gig to bring people together in joyful celebration after a funeral service but Dion and his great team helped us to do this. From the beginning, Dion listened to our needs and had great suggestions. He was on the spot from start to finish and everything went off without a hitch, including the AV display (thanks to the clever techie team). The local produce and attentive service in these beautiful garden surroundings made this a memorable experience for us. PS. Dion created a space for us with enough room for the required physical distancing so everyone felt confident!).


I have been to HSG a few times now and it consistently delivers on food, service and value. Dining with friends and recently for an event they really go the extra mile to create an experience that keeps you coming back time and time again. In living up to their name with local ingredients our meals have always tasted fresh and delicious!!


We had a wake there last Friday afternoon. Everything at HSG at the Gardens was fabulous.
The food was delicious and very appropriate. Service was amazing. The staff were all friendly and courteous. Nothing was any trouble for Dion when he was planning our event with us. Thank you everyone.


Outstanding food and service with a beautiful atmosphere.
I have a lot of difficulty finding somewhere to dine out as I am diabetic and asking for any change to a meal can feel awkward. I tend to just not go out. Finding HSG has been a godsend. I don't feel uncomfortable at all. Nothing is a problem. The food is absolutely amazing, and the service is second to none. I even had a gorgeous desert without affecting my blood glucose level. Everyone I talk to, gives rave reviews about HSG. My family and I had a fantastic time. Thank you for creating wonderful memories HSG. We'll be regulars.


Exceptional food, service and ambience


Absolutely amazing
Private dining event was incredible. The head chef Mitch plated up each course in front of us with information about the local produce....well done Dion & Mitch.....super delicious!!!!!


Private dining experience tonight was some of the finest food I have eaten anywhere in the world. Who would have thought to find it in regional Queensland?


I introduced my friends to HSG At The Gardens. We loved it! We tried the lunch and dessert menu and the food was really fresh and delicious. The fish tasted like the ones my grandfather used to catch. Very fresh, not frozen. The homemade caramel macadamia slice was so delicious. I was so impressed, I took my mum to HSG the same week to try out the same menu. My friends are looking forward to visiting the gardens again soon. Great food, great setting and exceptional customer service. Five stars! Well Done HSG At The Gardens staff. Thank you for creating beautiful memories for me and my loved ones.



Such a wonderful place. The food looks and tastes amazing, the staff are absolutely lovely and the gardens are so spacious, peaceful and relaxing. So far I've only been during the day but am looking forward to heading out one of their live music nights under the fairy lights!! I imagine it will be magical. :D


Great food, lovely atmosphere!
Our whole table of food was fantastic! Beautifully presented, singular dishes with inovative taste combinations. Something for everyone!

What a find the menu is at HSG . Deliciously special.


Amazing food and even better service
We discovered this beautiful place last year and loved it so much - the food and the service - that we're having our wedding there next week. The food is amazing and they cater for all dietary requirements - especially the gluten free pancakes and waffles for breakfast! But my absolute favourite is their gnocchi. It is to DIE for!

This was our first visit to HSG At The Gardens and we were very impressed. We give this restaurant Five stars!
The food was absolutely fresh and delicious. Mum and I went for breakfast. I tried the chickpeas and they were fresh, not served out of a tin. The tofu, spinach, tomatoes and avocado complemented the chickpeas perfectly. Mum had the pumpkin scones served with fresh cream and a cappuccino and she found this very delicious. The presentation of both dishes were perfect. The atmosphere was very relaxed, while at the same time maintaining a high level of professional service. The customer service was wonderful. Everyone was so nice and helpful. Mum and I would definitely come here again. We highly recommend HSG At The Gardens.
