We were greeted by the Chef and waitress and given our choice of seating. The service was good and the hot and cold seafood platter we shared was tasty and beautifully presented. There was a note on the menu that it would be advisable that you pre-order if you wanted the platter, however, as it seemed to be not too... More

On a golfing trip, 8 of us went to Depz, the owner/ chef greeted us & made us feel most welcome. We went there because we all wanted a steak & all of us agreed , our steaks were cooked beautifully & were of excellent quality. Our entrees were varied from Oysters to soft shell crabs, again we all thought... More

Standard food. Nothing special. Not sure how/when they claim to have won the award 'most outstanding restaurant'. Plastic plates. Self service for water (given there were only two couples in cafe a lack of customer service). TV was on the shopping chanel had to ask to turn it down. No ambiance.

We wanted something quick, tasty and a mix of dishes to suit the family of 4. The kids meals (up to 16yo) were great, the kids were not going to be left hungry. The mains were excellent quality and the desert was devine. The restaurant is nothing flash, and a first glance you might even walk by, but look past... More

Slow and inattentive service. It wasn't even that busy. The coffees were weak and not full. Presentation was poor. Food was okay but expensive for what it was. Small services. Would go somewhere else next time.

When we saw Lambs Fry on their breakfast menu, we couldn't wait to try this restaurant but it was a huge disappointment. It might be a generational thing because it was how my mother cooked it 40 years ago - overcooked :( Along with the lamb's fry we ordered the savoury mince on toast but this too was a bit... More
