This must be one of the very few restaurants that have offered to replace my salad/garnish on my burger with an alternative as I don't eat salad on my burger. The food was good but not great, they didn't have some items from the menu but what they made was quick and good enough to make us consider going again... More

We visited during Labour weekend, the cafe wasn't busy and I ordered the seafood chowder, berry pie (from the cabinet) and coffee. The coffee and pie were great, they even went so far as to warm it slightly for me and offered a choice of yoghurt or cream on the side, however, the same couldn't be said for the soup... More

As we looked for dinner we read the reviews on this place while sitting in it and having a drink. Thinking that it wouldnt be good we left and had a look around but came back in the end. Had nachos with a huge portion of sour cream. A yummy ginormous canaloni and a well cooked and seasond steak with... More

I'm a regular here when ski-ing and you usually know what you're going to get. They have Steinlager jugs here which is a double plus good. The food is trickier - last time they had run out of most things but were still handing out menus and only telling customers about what was off when they tried to place their... More

We had dinner here and enjoyed the food so much we returned for lunch when we were unable to ski one day. The seafood chowder served in a bread bowl was delicious and a very clever way of serving it. The other people with me had burgers (2 different ones) and said they were also delicious. When we returned for... More

Meals took 45 mins. My eggs looked revolting, overdone and disintegrating...after being dumped on the table the waitress scowled and asked if I wanted new eggs, she knew she served a substandard meal but hoped I wouldn't care. The side of avocado was 3 tiny slices of half brown avocado for $5. The fourth meal just never arrived, apparently they... More
