We went there for my sisters birthday. It was a fairly large group and we were well looked after. Really enjoyed the afternoon. Kids activities were appropriate for the age group. Reasonable prices. Plenty of parking and a great atmosphere. Worth the trip up from Sydney.

My reservation was not processed by venue staff, so going through OpenTable was a total waste of time.

Been here a few times and would always highly recommend it for families especially with small children. Would be great if when booking you have the option of begin seated near the play area.

My husbands first meal was the wrong meal, that's ok though, sent it back. Only for his correct meal to come out not cooked! By this time everyone else had well and truly finished. So we asked for a refund and he went to maccas!

We reserved a table and that was easy to find. Great food choice for everyone from adults to kids. Our friend has a food allergy and the kitchen staff were very accommodating and took the matter seriously. Very friendly staff and a fantastic place to take kids

We love going to the Ettalong Diggers, Bistro 51. The food is pretty good, with decent serving sizes. Daily/weekly specials are great, but the regular menu prices are a bit over the top. $25 for Fish and Chips, as nice as it might be, is still just Fish and Chips. The Popcorn Chicken is a winner, with the kids and adults. I love the Sweet Potato fries, and Cauliflower/Zucchini fritters. You can't beat a good Chicken Schnitzel, or Roast of the day. The waterfront views are lovely, and there is often a musician playing away. Worth a visit.
