Beautiful food, warm and friendly staff and prices reasonable. We enjoyed a 3 course dinner and breakfast in this restaurant, and it was all very good.

I had the lamb shank, which was to die for. Perfectly cooked, great amount of sauce. My partner had the garlic prawns and she finished the whole... More

Booked dinner because of the excellent reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Food was great and service was also fantastic. Owners picked us up from our accommodation and dropped us off later on. Lamb Shanks are a must!!

We were pleasantly surprised that this restaurant lived up to its reputation. The wait staff were friendly and attentive without being in your face. The smoked salmon and asparagus gnocchi was excellent. An appearance in the window by Lemontree the rather large resident kangaroo, provided some entertainment.

Stayed in Halls Gap a week and went here based on the reviews. The food was very good with 2 cleaned plates at the end of our main course. It was very quiet mid-week with only 3 other tables occupied. When we arrived we were a little apprehensive seeing a bright LED 'open' sign displayed in the window. However the... More

It felt like a home cooked meal my mother might serve. Food was nice flavors were basic. Given the glowing recommendations on tripit, our meal was underwhelming.

The meal and service were all superb for our off-season week night dining. Food presentation was outstanding for all courses,the food itself was great and the wine list had a good selection of well priced local wines. We chose the restaurant from it's TripAdvisor rating as number 1 in the area and can see why it got that rating. The... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. It's only a very short drive from Lakeside Caravan Park. My entree was enough for me though main options look really good too. There was a Kangaroo hanging out by the window when we were there. He looks like a regular. I'd recommend this place.
