The pizza was very tasty and the beer cold. What more could you ask. They do not take credit cards, cash only.

We kayaked to Nambawan from Melcoffe this morning with the grandchildren. They love the place, especially the kids movie night, the pizzas and sherbets. We especially enjoyed the fruity smoothies and the relaxed atmosphere where we could hang out and watch people on foot or in the water.

Today I had Fettuccine Carbonara with an egg yolk in the middle......delicious! Andrew had the chilli, pork and salami pizza, it was enough for 2 people but couldn't help him out as mine was more than enough. You won't go hungry here. Service was friendly and quick.

Nambawan is essentially a thatched cover over chairs and tables and a kitchen and counter, right on the harbour. Its basic and just... More
