We dined here both nights we were in town as it was by far the friendliest place around. The food was good but it was the friendliness of the staff and their clear commitment to service that was the real standout.

Had an awesome time here! Really enjoyed the curry buffet they prepared for our dinner, and the beer there was great too. Really fun, relaxed atmosphere, and a great place to rest and catch up after a long day doing outdoor activities. Definitely recommend-- I will always think back fondly on memories made here!

Very disappointing meal. Batter OK but quality of fish poor and chips substandard. Very poor value for money

I was more than an hour after we ordered when we got the food and it was cold. The food was ok, but the wait killed it for us. it was a little busy but not crazy busy. The girl behind the counter smiled to us when we complained but did not look concerned too much.

Good food & quick service. Husband had rump steak with a fried egg on top. He enjoyed the steak, though thinks they left off the advertised garlic butter. I had the beef rib in orange BBQ sauce it was great - the sauce was fantastic, had a bit of heat to it. It was to be served with coleslaw &... More

This place appears to be where crowds of tourists patronize, probably because it serves the best food in town. And perhaps it is the lamb shank that draws the crowd. While almost every patrons were going for the lamb shank, we ordered the curry of the day, which turns out as Thai green curry with chicken and vegetarian fried rice.... More
