Great Lunch venue

Have lunched here many times over the last few months, and it never disappoints...only a small lunch menu, but tasty and value for money.. The "Special " curry chicken and spinach is great, but needs a board change to another type of meat,as this has been the only "special" for some months... read more

Great location and decor . Service was good. Disappointed in main meal beef wellington which was a steak with a little bit of pastry on top I admit this was noted on the menu how it was prepared and I thought I would still try. Please stick with a true beef wellington. Otherwise pleasant evening but a little pricey. .

They split the bill!!! And what is important is everyone enjoyed the food...left very satisfied....Great comments for the all day breakfast, salmon linguine,... More

beuatiful restored old building in a great location with views. We had a family group of 7 which was well catered for with a comfortable spacious layout of the restaurant. Friendly service and good variety of well prepared dishes. Worth a try.

I ate here recently while in Portland for work. The decor and setting of this place is really nice, an old post office conversion. I ate here 2 years ago and remembered having a really nice meal, Im not sure if it is the same owners since then. The food was definitely not up to scratch this time. For entree... More

The old post office certainly has been well renovated and if you book you can get a window seat. The tables are spread out so you don't feel cramped like lots of restaurants do. Soft furnishings absorb the noise so it's relatively quiet. The waitress was very attentive. Pasta serving size is over the top. My fiances chicken pesto linguine... More

We had a seal tour booked for 3pm and the wait staff ensured we got our food in time for us to leave and make it to the tour. Very courteous, polite and friendly. Will definitely be back! Oh and the food - we got the paninis that were absolutely fantastic! Thank you!

A good place if you feel like something light and easy at lunchtime. Formerly the old Portland Post office, it has great views of both the harbour and the street and the service is excellent. The meals are reasonably priced, and very filling. I had locally caught fish, chips and salad for $6.50 and the fish was cooked to perfection.... More
