The Terrace owners and staff were wonderful. Really made our special family dinner last night wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble, nothing fazed them and they went over and above. A must visit for food, service and ambience. Fantastic guys . We really did appreciate it.

Having spent a frustrating day being turned back due to bush fires, we were coming towards the end of our 700km drive, late in the day, and desparate to find a restaurant that was open, we passed The Terrace. It was open! The staff were so welcoming and the food was delicious! Thank you!

Friendly staff seated us promptly. We were surprised at the extensive menu of food and drinks. Recommend the smaller size Blue Cod and Chips (ample adult meal), Steak and Mushrooms, Crusted Lamb and Chicken Parmigiana. Well presented tasty meals and excellent value for money.

Had very good meal off the lunch menu. The roast of the day, very good, nothing stale or pre-cooked feel about it. The Creme Brulee was great.

I met a relation for lunch, meals ranged from $15 -$35 with something for everyone! The food was delicious, the service was friendly, and to finish with the coffee was good. Great place to go for somewhere a bit different. Loved the menu selection.
