The award-winning Bentley Pines Training Restaurant at South Metropolitan TAFE is a live, interactive training environment for our students preparing for work in the hospitality industry.
Hospitality and cookery students serve and prepare food in the restaurant and showcase their skills in planning a menu, budgeting, making purchases, and preparing and serving food and drinks to members of the public. Events students provide menu presentation and advertising when special events or exhibitions are staged at the venue.
