The food wasn't bad but way to expensive. The food was pub grub really with less and garnished with more than pub half slice of orange. The drinks are three times that of any where else and the dining room is over crowded. Since my last visit The Black Cockatoo has closed down.

This little cafe has it all. Clean, welcoming, child friendly,relaxing, efficient, great value and THE FOOD IS FRESH AND DELICIOUS. We popped in with our hungry wee ones after feeding the dolphins at the boat harbour. It was during the towns seafood festival so it was very busy. It was a welcome relief after the hectic and grubby surrounds on... More

I've been fortunate to dine here at The Black Cockatoo a few times over the past couple of years whilst on holiday in the area. It's a great cafe. Brekkies are generously sized and delicious. Lunch is my favourite here. Always lots of fresh seafood options and a well stocked bar to match! Will be back again

Thank you for a warm welcome to the Bay. Enjoyed a great lunch on the Friday, especially as you cater well offering non-meat dishes for those that choose. Good home cooked food, so we decided to return for dinner on Saturday evening and weren't disappointed, even though there was a bit of a wait for our food. Thank you for... More

Service is lovely here, even when they were flat out busy! Just a pity the $5 coffee wasn't worth waiting for. Tin can bay really needs decent coffee. Perhaps they could look at a good coffee bean to use😊

This cafe is the trendy place to visit in Tin Can Bay, it has great coffee and the food is great and very nicely presented. They have an extensive menu. I would suggest that free wifi would be a great service to provide customers, Tin Can Bay is a small community and lacks a lot of eating options. We went... More

Dined here with my husband for our anniversary. First impressions are that this upmarket restaurant is more aligned with a cafe atmosphere and decore, but impressive for Tin Can Bay. Plastic seating quite uncomfortable. Ordered a bottle of Black Cockatoo house Chardonnay and advise guests not to waste your money on this one. Limited menu but ideal to maintain fresh... More
