Quiet dining with a classy surrounding dotted with colorful artwork. Good food and nice wine. The pasta dish was a bit bland, but a salad on the side helped. Skip the baguette and go with other bread offerings.

We had good coffees and lunch time snacks here.There are tables outside with a view over the harbour if the weather gods are kind. It is also open in the evening and sometimes has live music so worth checking up on.

Went for an early morning breakfast. Lovely coffee and food was very nice. Staff were pleasant and sitting outside watching a cruise ship dock was lovely.

The le cafe used to be very good, but perhaps old age and having a great view have caught up with it. The seafood chowder is very average and although it has specials it feels a bit over priced for what it delivers. The coffee is ok. So yes I go back there but its not my first choice in... More

This place is right on the waterfront, so has great views. I have been for both a quick drink and dinner. The hot chicolate was delightful and I have been reliably informed the coffee is the best in town (Havana for those coffee drinkers). The menu is select, and the food takes a wee while to be served but is... More

We had a lovely table with a quay side view. The Oso Bucco goat dish and Lebanese cus cus salad were exotic and filled with spices and aromatic flavours. The beer and the wine lists were excellent and the service good. There was a great vibe in the restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality highly recommended.

We had brunch at the Le Cafe on a very busy day in Picton during the Christmas holidays. We had a long wait for our food but it was delicious when it arrived, in fact we both loved our eggs and bacon - poached and fried. The toast was a little challenging for our 4yo - the bread was soooo... More
