Had lunch here. Salt and pepper calamari was delightful. Everyone in our group loved their meals. View was beautiful. Happily recommend to others and would happily eat here again. Toilets available at back of gift shop or downstairs.

A balmy evening, a beautiful setting and a delicious meal. That was the Gorge Restaurant tonight. Once again, we really enjoyed our meal there and will be back. We would recommend lunch or dinner at the Gorge Restaurant.

A fabulous leafy verandah overlooking the Gorge, good service, couldn't fault the food (and I can be picky), the wine list was all you could want, food and wine were reasonably priced and the puddings were just sublime.An altogether thoroughly enjoyable lunch.

I think they have a vegetarian option. Not a massive menu but I am sure they would be accomodating
