The artwork and the decor is excellent - it gives an authentic arty ambiance. The service was also very good and friendly. The idea of having the menu on a black board brought to your table is a nice alternative - especially if done by someone with intimate knowledge of the dishes on offer. On the negative side - the...

Small town restuarants often have a number of run-of-the-mill 'safe' choices. After arriving in Prince Albert on a Tuesday, where most of the restuarants seem to do a 5 day Wed-Sun run, we were left with the choice of eating at the hotel or the Gallery cafe as the 3rd choice was fully booked. We were however pleasantly surprised by... More

Lovely local food while you can watch beautiful art work. Book before hand to prevent not getting a spot.

We went there on a recommendation. The food was good, but very expensive. We did not expect to pay those prices, especially in a small country town.

This is a very popular place and was full, so attention by waitron was sporadic. My husband enjoyed his food but my choices were not great for my taste buds. A personal preference. Ambiance is busy, tables very close to each other on the balcony so can get noisy when restaurant is busy. Stunning pictures in the gallery.

Well worth the visit. Interesting menu -- lots of local ingredients. Excellent service. All makes for a memorable meal. And lots of fine local paintings on the restaurant wall and in the gallery rooms beyond.

One night's stay in the now developed hamlet of Prince Albert led us to one of the finer meals of our life together - appropriately celebrating our 14th anniversary! Brent Phillips-White has combined all his creative talents in establishing Gallery Cafe - midway down the mainstreet - intriguing galleries downstairs with a 'proper' restaurant on the first floor. It was... More

Has 2 meals in 4 days at Prince Albert. The duck and cherry pie is world class, the cold soup and Nasi Goring very good. Wonderful ambiance out on the balcony - staff very helpful with good service and helpful waiters.

The rest of my table all had the nasi goreng, which was on special when we visited. They all enjoyed it, although the one of us who ordered the 'hot' version was unable to distinguish it from the 'mild' version asked for by the others. I had the duck and berry pie, recommended earlier by a local. It was lukewarm... More

Lamb Shank was amazingly soft and well prepared. Food was surprisingly quick and great suggestions of wine.
