                                    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.

                                    We drove over 2 hours just to enjoy eating at this restaurant again and it didn’t disappoint. We’ve eaten there for breakfast and dinner and highly recommend their pancakes and pizzas. Can’t wait to return.

                                    My husband and I had a fabulous dinner for date night. The staff went the extra with a decorated table for us. The food was absolutely fabulous, especially dessert. We loved that the food and drinks were sourced locally. The ambience was relaxing and quiet. Highly recommend

                                    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.

                                    Hi 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.

                                    We had a pizza and chicken casserole that night, Pizza was really nice but casserole was a bit salty for me. Overall was a good experience.

                                    Wonderful food. We had the tapas and shared with 6 people. So yummy, especially the calamari. Staff are very friendly and cheerful.

                                    Quite simply the best tapas I’ve eaten, and that includes in Spain! No pretence, just incredible ingredients prepared with love.

                                    Great food as always! We ordered a combination of tapas and mains and shared them all. It’s wonderful to have such diversity in a small country town, part of High Country Hamlets! Some specials too might encourage more visits! Everyone loves a special!
