It was OK but expensive for what was ordered. Price was on the menu so I only have myself to blame but I expected more. No table service and staff seemed to be going through the motions. I think there are better options.

Most places had wait times of 20-40 minutes ... now I know why this place didn't. Service was bad, food was just plain awful, so bad I couldn't eat mine (and I'm a guy that will eat about anything!). The soup I ordered never came. My wife's was OK, not good, but at least edible. The best they could do... More

We arrived when the cafe just opened for the day. The waitress was very friendly and the breakfast was well cooked. The coffee was great too. We then decided to buy our packed lunch there. We went there in the afternoon to buy next day's lunch, but all sold out. Fresh food and good service.

Very average place wifi unreliable. Staff not very friendly or helpful. Quite pricey for the quality of food. My salad was plain but ok, but my partners green lip mussels were overcooked and some weren't cleaned properly. She left more than she ate. We were sat outside because we had large bags, but smokers spoilt the location.

Joined friends for dinner night before starting Kepler track. Immediately greeted with surly waitstaff, including a woman who appeared to be the duty manager. When a friend with food allergies inquired about the condiments and toppings on a burger, he was told to "look at the menu." The food that then arrived was then disappointing, bland and lukewarm. Not worth... More
