    Service was great and the Café was lovely and clean. However the food really wasn't, the oil from the chips was old and the fish had a terrible dirt/mud taste. Was a setting for 8 several complained of food not being very good. I won't be going back.

    Beautiful location. Most staff very friendly and helpful. Meals were lovely, however was disappointed they didn't have vegan cheese for the pizza. Good specials on Friday afternoon including happy hour and free wings. Lovely to have live music on the deck.

    The food was yummy but service was lacking, we did not get the food we wanted. Our meals were confirmed at the checkout. No one checked that we had all our meals and we waited for an hour before we went up to to find out what happened. There were disagreements. While we were need up getting what we wanted, it was a very disappointing time as we were there as a memorial or our nanna who is flying high.

    I decided to give this cafe another try even though last year when I went I was very disappointed in the quality of the food (cold chips cold fish cold calamari) and wrote my review stating this. Would you believe that this year my review is exactly the same. My guests and I even sent our meals back because they were cold (again) obviously a few min in the microwave heated the chips but not the calamari or fish. Very annoyed. You can't expect loyalty just because of would outlook. At about $22 a dish I expected more.

    We booked a table outside and asked to be under roof, we were put right at the end in the wind and weather, no one even making an effort to put us in a better location as there were tables under the veranda area with no reservation signs when we arrived but they filled up quickly, imagine how we felt realising that reserving a table was actually worse than just walking in. We did not stay to order a meal and just left after a few minutes.

    The view and the location are the best part about this cafe as our lunch was nothing but disappointing. They had our booking, but our reserved table had not been organised. Despite being Fathers Day, we were lucky enough to find a vacant table ourselves. Wine from the bar was served in a glass with the previous patrons lipstick on it, and my daughters lunch was bought out stone cold. The food was incredibly average for the price. We won’t be back.

    Food was fresh, hot & flavoursome. Service quick & efficient. Unable to order extra Calamari, we had to order a complete extra meal which we found archaic in these modern times of dining out. Seated opposite lifts was somewhat noisy, we can't have everything. Our family from Narrabri N.S.W. & ourselves would definitely dine there again. Thank You.

    I was informed on arriving that my booking didn't mean anything, and that anyone could sit outside (where I'd booked). Reason seemed to be that building work was happening within a meters of the dining tables - this was just about tolerable, but not once the nail gun started being used.

    We got a super weird vibe from the moment we walked in. There were people sitting inside however it was really quiet, not in a good way. We made a reservation however there was no table made up for us, fair enough because it was quiet but outside wasn’t even open. Really basic menu options as-well. We ended up just going somewhere else instead.

    Drinks and this side of things done well, place wasn’t very busy inside or out and it took 1 hour and 10mins for our food to arrive? Breakfast food? Not even that hard to make? We were advised it would be about 1/2 an hour but seriously not this long. It was very nice food once we got it but not even an apology to say it was running this late or when we received it to say it was going to take this long. Will not go back here again.

    We love the location and were very pleased to see you have included live music. We have visited for breakfast and dinner several times in the past month but the live music made it an exceptional experience. We will be back again soon on a Friday night and would love it if you would offer music on Saturdays as well. QR table ordering would also be a big plus!

    The food was pretty average for the prices charged. No cutlery on the table & when it was delivered to the table we were still short for the number of people. (8) Not everyone like or wants their food deep fried.

    Lovely food, except one meal did not turn up until a return to cashier to remind them, and then an even longer wait, which for the hungry guest, meant we felt bad for them, which spoiled the occasion somewhat. Food was well presented and fresh. And most of the staff were friendly.
