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... read more

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

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

Great service, but unfortunately my meal was sub standard. Ordered garlic bread and twice baked pork belly with apple and walnut salad. Garlic bread was dry and quite tasteless...Pork Belly was bland and dry and crackle rock hard. Apple and walnut salad was the same generic salad served to every other table with some pieces of green apple and walnut... More

Great service and delicious modern Australian food. We had the fish of the day which was excellent. We think it's the pick of Portland.

Very nice location in a lovely old building. The menu has traditional and normal food but when the courses come, here the surprise: delicious food cooked in a very personal, original and tasty way. Also the presentation in the plate was very nice. My compliments to the chef!

How surprised we were to find such a good restaurant in Portland with outstanding views. I had their special curry which was delicious. My husband had the steak sandwich which he also enjoyed. The staff were very pleasant and catered to our needs. We will definitely be coming back to enjoy another meal in such a lovely setting. They also... More
