My friends and I celebrated the completion of our Great Ocean Walk with a meal at the Roadhouse. What a find. Fabulous food and the service was outstanding. The staff that night were so entertaining and friendly; even singing Happy Birthday to my friend when delivering her Carrot Cake dessert. A real country roadhouse - definitely worth a stop if...

Massive servings of delicious and varied food, great coffee, and good pick of sweets and cakes. Also, its decor is inviting likewise the open kitchen, the large seating area, and, of course, the kind staff. A very pleasant stop while camping in the nearby area. We would definitely come back again!

Called in for dinner on our way from Cape Otway to Princetown. Had initially planned to have dinner in Port Campbell but on reading glowing feedback about the newly named 'Otway Central', decided to give it a go. Five very satisfied bellies later, really glad we did. No kids' menu as such, but they happily rationed a delicious adult Parma,... More

A real surprise! The good experience started from the moment we pulled up to fill up with petrol and got service at the bowser. Haven't had someone fill my car for eons! A lovely bit of customer service. Then went in meaning to grab something to eat for the road expecting your usual roadhouse fare of hot chips and meat... More

I stopped here on a recent trip to fill up with fuel and came across the cafe when paying, I'm so glad I did what a great place. I had a burger, I think it was called the hill top open burger and wow it was amazing. Well prepared with a friendly smile from the young ladies behind the counter,... More
