We had a wonderful lunch and wine and coffee there only a few days ago sitting outside in the sun. It was very very busy so the service was slow but worth the wait. Gorgeous food!!

Blackstone used to be my families favourite restaurant. We used to go there at least 2-3 times a month. We loved the ice chocolates and the porridge. Since the last time we went things had changed considerably. The service was OK when we walked through the door, but after that we didn't have a very good experience. In the beginning... More

after a long 30min wait just to get our drinks our meals followed about 20min after that, the food was overcooked and chewy, the service was shocking, for a full cafe they had 1 waitress on. will think twice before dining here again

Stopped in here recently for some lunch and were very pleased we did. Our meals were delicious; husband's BLT and fries and my Corn Fritters with bacon and avocado were delicious and generous. We don't normally indulge in dessert for lunch, but when there's creme brulee on the menu, it's a foregone conclusion. The coffee infused brulee was absolutely delicious,... More

The locals sent me here and from the moment I stepped through the door I could see why. Lovely smiles and greeting by the barista and owner; great coffee, fast and delicious sweets. No need for me to try elsewhere when visiting Mosgiel.

Our first time to this restaurant but we will be back. Our food...the fish and chips and the ribs were both very good and the meals came out to us piping hot which is how I enjoy them. Nothing worse than room temperature fries. The new owner greeted us and made us feel very welcome. On Thursday,Friday and Saturday nights... More

We stopped here, not by design, but through necessity as there aren't many places to have lunch in Mosgiel we found out on a Sunday. We're glad we did end up here though. The place was doing a good trade and the staff were flat out but coped very well. We both enjoyed our mains and accompanying drink. The diners... More
