Had breakfast with my family at Walter's. Good selection from the menu. Ordered the big breakfast. Very generous serving. Suitable for someone with a good appetite. Has a playground just next to it. Child friendly restaurant. Overall a good experience.

A nice sunny day that was ideal to spend a couple of hours lingering over lunch with a delightful outlook. It has been a couple of years since we had been to the cafe and were pleased to see the menu had been improved with good descriptions. The food was presented nicely and were suitably sized portions for the starters... More

We met friends here for coffee cake and a catch up. The setting is delightful but noisy even when it's not full. It was difficult for our elderly friends as the tables were wide across too. However, the coffee and cake were delicious and the staff friendly.

Cafes that don't take credit card today but send you to their ATM which charges you $2.90 are a blatant rip off and one to be avoided. Inexcusable in today's business world. Please get your act together and stop ripping off families. I didn't think these existed anymore.

I initially read the reviews on trip advisor and thought this was a place I could not miss during our short visit to Airlie beach. Well it did not disappoint! The tapas style food was divine and reasonably priced, with excellent service to match! The short ribs and wagyu beef were amazing, along with the mushrooms, zucchini and pumpkin arancini... More

Visited with my elderly mum. Good step free access. Best burger I have eaten in a very long time. Mushroom soup and calamari also good. Service not the speediest but staff courteous. Stunning view.

Such a shame. This a nice cafe in a beautiful spot but service was slow and food average. After waiting at "please wait to be seated" sign for a few minutes and seeing no staff we seated ourselves, then when noone saw us we got up and ordered. After my sister in law ordered, I went to order and the... More

I have been a few time to the Restaurant but am not particularly keen to go there. The service is very poor and the food is not that great. Fine for a coffee and cake if you don't mind waiting.

The cafe is in a good location, on the river, but I think they rely on that for trade, rather than particularly good food, service or value for money. The menu says there are charges for menu changes which I think is ridiculous. I asked for the Bruschetta, which was very disappointing. $19.50 for one (large-ish) thin slice of toast... More
