    I’d booked The Curly Carrot for dinner whilst camping with my extended family at Crows Nest caravan park. One of my cousins has particular dietary requirements, and when she asked the staff if they had gluten free meals, the response was they could accommodate her with a large selection from the menu. The seafood chowder was very delicious as was the spaghetti carbonara and chicken parmigiana. We all complimented the staff on the selection of food vowing that we shall return. The Curly Carrot would give restaurants in major cities a run for their money.

    The Curly Carrot is a treasure. Lovely coffee, amazing food, and a beautiful deck to sit on and enjoy it. It’s our favourite place to go for a lazy weekend breakfast, family celebrations or coffee and cake.

    Overall it was good basic food, well cooked. The staff were very polite and happy to take our orders but were very busy so service was a little slow. This is not a reflection on the staff but rather management need to roster more people on for special events (Hampton festival)

    The potato scallops are a rip off. 8 very very thin potato slices in a tempura batter for $10!!!! Equivalent to buying around 3kg of spuds. Be warned.

    The Curly CarrotResponded on 1 March 2021Hi Leanne. Your review doesn’t seem fair. Remember you are paying for REAL potato scollops that is serviced with a housemade local tomato relish and seasoned with Murray River salt -an Australian product.. you’re also sitting there enjoying our ambiance, and the table you are sitting at as well as paying that staff member to serve you a glass of cold water on arrival ...all with a smile.

    Staff were very friendly and very obliging. The menu was an interesting mix and good quantity and quality. Definitely value for money. The men in our group had the beef cheek which was delicious my friend had the chicken and I the pork belly also very good. Meals had great presentation with the vegetable accompaniments perfectly cooked. Surroundings simple and clean allowing the meals to be the stars. Premises are wheel chair friendly. We will be back

    We had pizza for dinner here - and it was THE BEST Pizza we have ever had - they were full of topping, flavour and were simply delicious! We had leftovers for lunch the next day, and they still tasted great! Another group had other items, which also looked equally satisfying.
