We were looking for somewhere different to go for afternoon tea and had a look on TripAdvisor. We found Tumble Down to be the most suitable for our needs. On arrival we were helped to a table outside close to the play area. My Mother,...More

We had not been to Tumble Downs for a couple of years and we were pleased that Werner and Michelle had kept their standards up, as good as they were 5 years ago. We especially enjoy the fillet stack and the oxtail and lamb shank...More

The food & service were good! However, access to the restaurant was difficult with my 98 yr old mother. Management could do with providing better access at the front so that one could get as close as possible for elderly/disabled people. The road was good...More

Excellent food, a very relaxing location with a great view. The address, "8" Curry's Post Road may mean 8 km from the turnoff at Howick, which is about right. Do check ahead, they are open restricted days and hours. Well worth the adventure!
