4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Another great place to eat in golden bay. Nice large out door fireplace, great menu and great location, way up in the native bush.

“Quirky and Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Have visited the Naked Possum twice during the summer and each time has been a delight. Sure it is a bit off the beaten track but well worth the extra effort. After all, there are not too many restaurants in the area!! Good service and menu for this type of restaurant. The special pies are "to die for" if you want a treat, provided you do not have them too often!

“Wonderful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

It is a bit of a drive to the Naked Possum but it was worth it- great food and friendly helpful folks to create and serve it. The chicken we ate was so tender and tasty with a good smoke flavour. We ate inside but they had lots of outdoor tables although when the wind blew a certain way the smoke may have been troublesome. All in all a great experience.

“Off the beaten track”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Great food and coffee in a hideaway location. A lovely garden to sit in if it is sunny or an outside open log fire if chilly. Worth the drive to find this gem

“Far from the maddening crowds delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I love the ambiance, friendly service and natural surroundings.
A lovely walk, if you feel energized enough. The coffee and cakes are delicious. The meals are hearty and have a home-made feel in the good sense..Love the people!
