We were recommend Elephant Pancake restaurant by friends. We visited on a cold wet windy day. I can't decide if the restaurant is relying on its quirky name or past history. For me, it did not live up to expectation, I found my chicken and mushroom crepe very average and the salad could have been... read more

I had been looking forward to our visit as this restaurant was recommended to us by friends. We made a huge mistake by detouring for lunch. I left upset after being treated so badly by a member of their staff. A young girl who when I asked to speak to the owners because I wanted to tell them how she... More

Everything from the road signs, parking and exterior and interior says someone has lost the love, except for the pancakes. However, the pancakes are more in the French style of a crepe rather than the English/American thicker stack style. We enjoyed the pancakes but not the dust and the very dark pine decor. We noted the business was for sale... More

I last visited about a year ago for my niece's birthday and, whilst we all felt it was a bit pricey for pancakes, the fillings were delicious and the servings extremely generous. The staff were friendly and very accomodating to our large party. We all fairly waddled out afterwards! HOWEVER, the same could not be said for our visit last... More

After recommendations we decided to stop for breakfast for our trip from Bicheno to Launceston Friday Feb 20. We checked the website and noted opening time of 8am before we left - which would work in well. After a long, narrow, windy road we arrived to a 'closed' sign. Very disappointed. Thank you to the small town of St Mary's... More

This is a great place to stop and have a wonderful pancake. Situated along Mount Elephant Pass, great views and a nice homely feeling when you walk inside. Loads of choice and the milkshakes are old fashioned style. Spoil yourself and drop in.

What a fantastic meal. I thoroughly enjoyed the Chicken, Blueberry & Camembert pancake. A very generous serving, great value for the money, terrific customer service and the Iced Coffee was to die for. We are a group of 5 ladies and will definitely be returning at a later date. Everyone really enjoyed their meal.

This place is just a classic. Always good food with consistently high quality. One day I will get around to trying their sweet pancakes, but the savoury ones are just so yummy. A winner!

Unless someone had recently passed away, there is no excuse for poor, unfriendly hospitality. They clearly don't encourage children, the pancakes are tasteless, and not great value, the coffee is like instant! We won't be calling in again!
