This is not the easiest place to find, but once you are there it's hard to forget. A family owned and run business, everything is high quality.

We had a variety of meals the scotch fillet, salt and pepper squid, chicken supreme and risotto. Absolutely no complaints.

High quality ingredients well sourced.

Service was outstanding, there was nothing we wanted for, whilst being polite and always attentive

If you are looking for a restaurant were the service is outstanding and the food is exquisite then look no further than the Default restaurant in Marcoola. We chose the Lamb, Salmon, and vegetation for our main courses. All servings were presented to the highest standard and tasted even better.

I know my review will be at odds with many but we think a few things could improve. We were a party of 6 on a Saturday night. First the very good: value for money. Considering that mains were all $30 or under, you really can't fault value. 5 stars here. It's also a nice location: it is little hard to find (ignore the Seaward Lane part) but their website gives accurate directions. Having a full gluten free menu is also a big plus. We ordered their garlic bread and bruschetta: these were nice. Their seafood pasta was also beautiful: generous and flavoursome. 3 of our party ordered the plum pork and all felt that the sauce was a little cloying and needed a bit more relief from the greens. We also felt that desserts were a bit of let down: the vanilla slice particularly was not served as per the menu and was quite bland. Service was just average and we waited quite a while for our meals as well. So, all told, we enjoyed our dinner but certainly didn't feel that 5 stars was warranted.

Such a lovely place - very homely and the owners seem to run the place (the passion shows)

Had the lamb and the pork and both were divine !

Desert platter looked sensational but we were so full we didn’t dare try it !

Would highly recommend.

We visited Default January 2018. Took a while to find the place... not really where you would expect it to be - within a housing estate basically - but we were very impressed. Prices were reasonable and food was excellent and generous servings !
We will definately go back. I don't usually give 5 stars but I can't find a reason not to !
Food great. Prices great. Service great. I just hope that the owners don't read this and decide to make changes before we go back.
