Description: Had a friend recommend it and I have to say, one of the best Steaks I have ever tasted and the Vegtables were clean, crisp and juicy. An English Tudor Style Decor. Will be back, perhaps to taste Pancakes this time. Family run and Nero the Owner who was also waiting the tables was a delight to deal with, very attentive.

We walked in and had to look for a staff member. They didn't have what I ordered off the menu so I just got chips. I could have got the same chips at the fish and chip for $3 but paid $8. The glasses for the water were dirty.

Wow! Flippin Pancakes is the stand out. As they say, it's way more then just pancakes. DON'T think its another Pancake Parlour, Flippin Pancakes is at the complete other end of the spectrum. Food is DELICIOUS and with far more choices to drool over! The staff are friendly and efficient and it is very family friendly. Will definitely be coming... More

I recently went for a Sunday drive to the Dandenong's with my family and we found a nice and cosy restaurant named Flippin' Pancakes. The atmosphere of the restaurant was old-fashioned and very welcoming. The breakfast menu had a lot of dishes to choose from that it was hard to decide which one to eat. I had the eggs benedict...

$5 for a small flat glass of lemonade for the children - you're got to be joking! Over priced, uninterested staff, terrible décor, and confusing pieces of paper put in front of us that was supposed to be the menu - no, I will not be back. With the excellent restaurants in the Dandenong Ranges, this one needs a good... More

We visited Flippin Pancakes for the first time in many years for a Saturday lunch. The open fire was burning and on a cold Melbourne day, that was a welcome sight. The menu was varied, but not extensive and is a little on the expensive side. The service was good, polite and attentive. Our food was nice and it is... More

We had fond memories of visiting this place over the years and decided to head back there. The first thing I noticed was the lack of cars in the carpark, which struck me as strange as the last few times we went there you could hardly find a park. When we looked at the menu it was fairly disappointing but... More

Staying with a friend who lives not far from Sassafrass we decided to go and give it a try for lunch. We are both in our 70's and my very tiny friend, with an appetite to match, asked the very friendly waitress what size the potato pancakes were and was told not too large. Her 'Canadian' style pancakes arrived and... More

We thought we would try this mountain restaurant after driving past. Rude staff, food was terrible, kids refused desert because pancakes taste "yuck" $5 for a small glass of soft drink, $20 for tasteless pancake with an egg, entree prawns (5) $20 and felt sick all the way home! 3 people in restaurant all night and they were very unhappy...
