What a spot! First time here but won't be the last. Gorgeous view to the surf beach, super food ( Niçoise salad with SA sardines, and a Super Bowl of fish, prawns and scallops. Yum. ) Realestate but terrific service. We will go back.

Seriously you guys really need to ask yourselves a key question - do you want to be in hospitality? If yes, then greet your customers with some respect. If no, then get the out of this game and let someone who wants to give good service a go. Every time I have been here I am made to feel like... More

We more or less stumbled across this kiosk whilst sightseeing and saw that it was open for Friday dinner. The specials menu looked good and so we stayed. Nothing seemed too much trouble despite us not having a booking and them being busy. Hubby had swordfish and I had mulloway - both were completely spectacular, beautifully presented, delicious and presented... More

Nestled in the dunes at the end of the car park at Goolwa Beach Great coffee anytime! Good for casual eats, ice creams etc to take away or sit in and enjoy local produce such as Coorong Mullet, baguettes, salads and specials! I had lunch here lovely fresh fish n chips and a glass of wine!

After an overnight stay in Goolwa we had breakfast here before a nice long walk along the beach. Coffee and food excellent.

Had two wonderful meals in two days at this great Cafe. Situated on the beach at Goolwa and run by an experienced caterer, Olaf, and his partners that know their trade. The Chef Joel is a first class chef and produces consistently good food. The waiting staff are attentive and consistently move around clearing completed dishes from your table to... More

Bombora is usually a favourite to take visitors to show off the beautiful beach and South Australian seafood. Well the location was stunning but the mulloway was very dry and only one small piece on each plate. We had to order extra because we were still hungry. But the damage was done and we left without dessert or coffee.
