The menu is all over the place, but I was pleased with the Chicken Satay that I ordered. Not fast, but acceptable service-- I sat in the "bar area" as to watch the rugby match.

We both ordered the starters platter with calamari, pork ribs, garlic bread etc. All these things were yummy and we do like to have a bit of variety. Portions were sizable, though not as big as some of the other dishes we saw coming out...More

We enjoyed a lunch here. I had a ciabatta and hubby had a hamburger. He wished he had the ciabatta - just as much food for less $. But all of it was delicious. We sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine.

Went here for steak while in the area. Food was great and was sitting by the fire which was great. Staff member did seem a bit off form, perhaps it was a long day. Great meal all the same

Popped into this bar/ restuarant for a bottle of wine after a long day of walking in Fox, to watch the sun go down. The price wasn't too much money for a tourist town in an isolated location. The deck outside is a lovely place...More

A little pricey, it's a tourist town so it's unpredictable. Delicious and fresh food. Friendly staff. Food portion are not big.
