Nice Dinner location

We enjoyed a very nice fish topped with prawn meal and the service was prompt and very friendly. Well worth a visit especially if you want a nice steak too.

A very colonial façade invites you in to this place filled with love! I say that because it is very obvious by the quality of the food, the manner in which it is served, the service standard of the staff and the attention to detail, the little extras. An unforgettable dining experience. Table seating is practical and not overcrowded, the... More

We ate twice here during our one week stay and were impressed both times.The smoked meat was delicious and SO tender. The sweets were also a delight.

This place is a bit of a walk from Burnt Pine main street and they call themselves the Steak Experts so I put them to the test with a 450gm T-Bone. It was perfectly cooked to order and was very nice. Whilst the steak is not as good quality as Norfolk Blue, Barney Duffey's is much cheaper and easier to... More

This restaurant is a very short drive from the middle of Burnt Pine towards the airport. We left our booking details on the board at the front of the restaurant, which seems customary on the island. My husband had ribs, which were lovely and tender (and accompanied by a fresh garden salad) and I had a chicken dish. The accompanying... More

I would not be likely to return. Not all menu items are available. This can happen anywhere of course, but a warning at some point which items on the menu are not available or seasonal only would be most helpful. Ambience? The faux tudor exterior seems tired and run down and the interior is worse. My partner's mother recommended this... More

Quaint little place with great tasting ribs. The husband had the seafood chowder as a starter and couldn't help raving about it.

We enjoyed a beautifully cooked rib eye steak with fresh salad and baked spud so much on our first visit that we returned for the same on our last night on the Island. The chef, Paul, has owned the restaurant for 7 years and took the time to chat about life on Norfolk. Paul's menu also includes ribs and ribs/chicken... More

My two friends and I had dinner here one night, they both had the ribs which were lovely and tender. I had the local eye fillet and it was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. Dessert was the banana crepe which was lovely. Waitress was very friendly and chef Paul even came and sat down and chatted to us after... More
