A delicious way to travel down a mountain. My son was so amused to find this gem in the forest. The wood fire inside was cranked up & wonderful to warm up by.

lovely food and drinks, cheaper than other places about the east coast, NO eftpos though and this is really annoying as we would have had dessert as well but used down to my last bit of cash. In this day and age it is expected.

We decided to go to the Elephant Pass Pancake - seems to have rave reviews. The pancakes were expensive, meagre, but OK to eat. The coffee was milky, insipid. Not much coffee taste. Service was perfunctory, and bordering on unfriendly. And when we tried to pay the bill (no credit cards!) they couldn't change a $100 note for a $40... More

Living close by we just hadn't had the opportunity to go out for lunch. I was disappointed they were closed in the evenings, but they were yummy. I don't like the savoury pancakes, i ike the sweet. It has been awhile since I have been back, hope to get there soon. xx dee

Had been looking forward to visiting this cafe for a while now and I was quite disappointed. The pancakes were ok (just). I had banberry which was a few slices of banana and a few blueberries inside the pancake!!! Nothing special at all!!! The coffee was ordinary - more like warm milk!! Have been there twice, the first and last... More

My pancake (crepe) was excellent, but it was not good value. It is a long drive for an expensive pancake. I enjoyed sitting by the fire on a cold day, but the staff were not friendly. I do not think it was worth the effort to get there.

My girlfriend and I were traveling from St Helens to Hobart and we saw a sign saying "Mount Elephant Lookout" (it didn't exist) we also saw a sign saying "world famous pancakes" (not sure how it got that title at all :/) the road was windy and rough. The staff were the rudest I've ever dealt with, I was asking... More

Had heard great this about this place but left feeling a little disappointed. The food was tasty but not good value for the prices charged.

I can't even tell you the number of years my family has been going to this restaurant and it is always consistent! I had the chicken tandoori this trip and it was great. The servings are a decent size to the extent that I couldn't fit a desert pancake in this trip. Well worth the drive if you are in... More
