Well, well, well. Some people obviously don't pay too much attention to the reviews they receive. I visited this restaurant a few years ago and swore I would never return, but silly me, decided to give them another go. Wrong decision! Slow service, food very...More

Not particularly busy at 10.30 and seemed to be enough staff. Just ordered 2 coffee and milkshake which took ages. Other people's brunch looked ok.

I didn't think the restaurant was as bad as others are making it out to be. It's a small cafe, though I'm noticing a trend of them running out of items. While we were there they ran out of scones.

Had a great lunch in this restaurant among the plants and trees of this park. The barramundi and salad was fantastic especially with a glass of wine. I topped it of with a nice Spicy Apple with Vanilla and Ice Cream.

Good coffee and great food. a great location and a cool spot to rest. We shared the Stockman's Platter again and took half of it away for dinner. The pate is yummy.

We've just returned home after having a sub-standard, overpriced breakfast here. The coffee was weak and warm and the food, just terrible. I payed just under $18 for 2 poached eggs slapped on two pieces of toast that were soggy from wet eggs, mushrooms that...More

We ordered two coffees and waited for almost half an hour before questioning the waitress who then managed to find our order. There were only around 10 people in the restaurant at the time. One order was for extra hot flat white, which came out...More

The location is nice but that's about it. Service is sparse and the food is a letdown--bland and uninteresting; nothing I couldn't have made at home.
