I had heard so much about this cafe that I had to try. The food was so delicious. Best Lamb shank and fish&chips i have ever had. Highly recommend this place to stop over especially if you have kids as they have a huge section...for kids to play around.More

We came here based on TripAdvisor ratings- we won’t do that again! Service was slow and meals took even longer! Almost 40 mins to receive average food. The seafood chowder was not nice, tough squid rings and mussels with a limited portion and flavour not...great. Served in a strange pastry/bread bowl, in a bowl, just weird. Frozen commercial meat patties on the burger were dry and tasteless. Not what you’d expect for the prices of the meals. We had hoped for so much more! We certainly couldn’t recommend to others.More

Twice I have been here for fish and chips, a very large plateful the first time, fish very greasy, the second time I thought I would get a take away as hubby was busy in the garden, thought I would try the fish and chips...again, well! they were just as greasy, a lot smaller and still costing over forty dollars, what a rip off.More

Yummy brekkie, big portions which suited my hubby well! Lovely, friendly service and actually surprisingly quick even though they warned us there might have been a wait. Definitely recommend!

Nothing better on a very wet day to go here for a beautiful tasty, fresh and hot breakfast. We both had eggs, bacon, tomato and toast, so nice. Only thing I didn't like was friendly staff taking husband's plate away whilst I hadn't finished. Ambience...was excellent, will certainly go back here.More

Always lovely to get served good food in a nice setting. The Greek salad full of fetta, parmesan, tomato and olives is great with toast. The quiche looked like it had meat in it (not good for this veggey) but turned out it was walnuts!...We saw tempura on another plate – next time! Thank you, Sylvie!More

Now there are two cake reasons for me to go back to the Rusty Tractor. I used to go for their great lemon Bar and Yoghurt, a fine combo, especially with the great triple shot Espresso they do for me. Recently I chanced to visit...on their first day of selling Almond Tart, terrific heated! There are many other reasons to go to Rusty Tractor, but you'll just have to go to find out for yourself ... beautiful juicy free oranges from their trees! So long as you order something to eat or drink!More
