You have to go a long way, across a turbulent sea and down a dirt road to get to the Marron Cafe, so it probably makes sense to know what a marron is and whether or not you're going to like eating one, before you...More

Bit of a drive up a dirt road to visit the Marron farm and wine tasting But worth it to listen to an interesting talk about Marrons and then eat them for lunch! Excellent presentation of a yummy crustacean

We come to the Farm for lunch. The premises are very attractive - rather different from the common corrugated iron prefab construction. The marron is a freshwater crayfish which is the speciality of the Farm, and this is the main menu item. I can't say...More

We visited for lunch. Restaurant was quiet. I had expected a more extensive menu but, possibly due to it being winter, the choice as less. We had the special platter which had an excellent selection but the marron, for flavour, was lacking. Dessert choices were...More

We were warmly greeted upon arrival to the Marron Cafe where the friendly and attentive service continued throughout the afternoon. We ordered the platter accompanied by 2015 Sauvignon Blanc and finished with coffee and pecan pie, all of which was delicious! Couldn't fault the food,...More
