“Great lunch-time spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

What I love about Cranky cafe is the varied menu. They do a great burger, seafood chowder, gorgeous fish and many more dishes. Some are spicy and the service is friendly and obliging. Their coffee is great too, and all prices are reasonable. PLUS....it's right across the park and Main Beach, so after your delicious lunch, you can take a stroll along one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia!

“Best in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Very friendly and attentive staff.
Food was amazing - seafood pasta dishes were of equivalent quality to most fine dining restaurants in Sydney.
Cakes were delicious (especially the carrot cake and brownies). Noticed there were several gluten-free options.
Decor is casual and inviting.
Nothing to complain about!

“Definitely worth trying”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Was recently in Merimbula. Tried this restaurant on our last night. The food was simple but fresh and delicious. Wished we had eaten there earlier in our visit.

Make sure you check it out.
