Impressed with the food, calamari to start, entree size perfect size to share between 2. Then had the fish and chips which was good and the chicken salad was decent. Food reasonably priced 20-30$ for mains

Average food and beverage, a tad on the higher price point. Service is slow. Choice of sitting inside or outside. Outside can be a bit breezy, even with the clear panels.

Tasty and reasonably priced breakfast with a beautiful view of the beach. I had the bacon and egg roll with yummy spicy relish and my partner had scrambled eggs on sourdough. Coffee was great too.

Very busy on Saturday for dinner. Very nice meals although my husband had the pork which was overcooked and tough. Service was slow .

Decent place - gets busy for lunch with the tourists doing the great ocean road. Coffee is good, food wasn't too bad - portions are huge! Worthy of mention is the chilli salted calamari with Thai mango salad. The felafel wrap and the rocks burger were ok.

I stoped in here to get a hot chocolate one night and that ended up being a bad decision, they are so overpriced it wasn't funny, they changed me $5 for a large which would be fine if it was actually large but it's not it's only a medium and it was warm not hot and hardly tasted like chocolate,...

You can tell when a place has seriously lost it's way and the Owner could not give a #hit when the staff are walking around totally lost (expect for one gorgeous young Lady and You know who You are :-) ) Dining room floor littered with food scraps, tables cleared but not wiped down and the place abuzz with 'FLIES'...
