Found this by chance when taking a little drive from Victoria. Just wanted coffee, but decided to go for a little snack as well. Servant very nice and friendly. Food was very yummy. I would have loved to spend more time here, but had to go back to hotel. The decor was very nice and cozy. Please... read more

We were just introduced to this restaurant by my grand-daughter and it is definitely a happy find. Located in the village centre of Metchosin in a rustic building filled with eclectic furniture and art pieces this is a restaurant that welcomes families. Not to say couples can't have a quiet meal as well. They don't take reservations so be prepared... More

This is our favourite restaurant in all of the Victoria / South Island. We go every Friday for sure and last week went Fri, Sat and Sunday. I recommend the Workman burger with fries and my Wife's favourite is the Longhorn Caesar salad. They have a good selection on the menu so you have your choice of burgers, ribs, pasta,... More

After being regular customers for well over 4 years we were stunned at poor management/ownership. Unfortunately they don't care as much as the service you regularly receive. I have everything good to say about their food, friendly staff and efficient service. Maybe it's time management/owners learn a lesson from their employees. After not receive a phone call back from management... More

My-Chosen Café, everything a country cafe should be, does everything right. It is always busy, the room is buzzing with people enjoying a really good meal and the owners are to be congratulated for keeping their standards consistently high. This time we ordered the liver and onions, always a favourite, always so good. Also the My Thai wrap which was... More

I am a firm believer that good things are worth waiting for, and My Chosen Cafe on a bright Sunday afternoon is certainly that! Packed parking lot and a bit of a wait, but every part of our experience was enjoyable! We waited for our table outside in the Critter Corner and the host found us there when our table... More

This restaurant remains a favourite spot for breakfast whenever we are visiting the area. Although the menu has changed little over the years we have been coming, the food continues to be flavourful with good portions and a reasonable price. The servers are friendly and efficient so what more could you ask for? The large number of customers that are... More

Good service here but the menu is dated and although they have added a few flavours to the standard meals, like Teriyake Burger, its still just a tasteless burger. Decor is western style.

So rare to give a restaurant 5/5. I also rarely go to this wonderful, out of the way restaurant which means that discovering their food remains absolutely delicious is like discovering a new facet to an already perfect gem. I was thrilled to hear, right after being provided with menus and offered coffee - no delay, that Tuesday is fish... More
