“Chocolate to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A chocolate experience never to be forgotten. But She is much more than chocolate. Their breakfast eggs benedict are the best I've experienced. the harbour views are great, the staff are most obliging. This is a great cafe to visit for a meal, a snack or just a coffee and view.

The food and the staff were very very good. Super menu, had trouble choosing a dish. Wonderful situation with outdoor decks to soak up the view.

“Great food and delicious chocolate drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We had a gorgeous lunch here-beautifully cooked and presented. Chocolate drinks especially the one with chilli was amazing! Bill was low thanks to the Entertainment Book. Altogether a great experience.

“Overpriced for a very disappointing lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I ordered the Chicken Bruschetta for lunch which utterly failed to live up to the menu description. The chicken was overcooked, dry and tasteless. It was accompanied by a small piece of toasted bread, four balls of raw mozarella and four tiny dots of pesto and oil. There was no dressing or sauce provided. Overall a very dry and tasteless dish, nowhere close to deserving a price of $28. The scenery is fantastic and the service is good (if a little slow) but I expect a lot more quality on the plate for those prices and don't think I would visit again based on the lack of value for money.
