A nice heritage building in a beautiful spot, however this place feels grubby and worn out. The food varied from okay to poor, yet the prices were not particularly cheap. Lukewarm soup that didn't taste good, iced chocolates drowning in chocolate syrup. This experience was consistent with other times we've been here.

Booked our family dinner for 6 on 3/04 to celebrate birthday dinners on 23/04. Received a phone call on 14/04 to say they were 'double booked' so they cancelled us. Pretty slack that it took them 11 days to work this out. Thank for nothing- we were showing 'out of towners' Geelong. Well they now have a lasting impression on... More

Had 2 x take away coffees and thought i would have a leasurely stroll. Was surprised with the extra $1 per coffee charged because they were take away. Each coffee over $5 for a medium. Not cool. Have never been charged more for take away. Usually its the other way around.

Wonderful ambience and decor which lives up to stylish beach house theme. We both enjoyed the flat head tails served with a lovely salad,whilst the mussels looked great as did all the meals. Extensive wine selection including by the glass. Add to this friendly, professional, helpful staff making for a most enjoyable lunch experience. Good coffee and good value for... More

Most of the other reviews are true to word. We attended a wedding here upstairs on the weekend. Was excited to come here as I thought it would be a lovely experience and lovely dining... but no....finger food only (& I know that is the choice of the couple, but...) the standard, quantity and quality was extremely poor. If you... More

We love going here on a hot day. You can sit and watch all the action of the splash pool and promenade beyond. The staff are friendly and relaxed and although the cakes etc are standard fare, nothing to complain about. The only thing I would say is maybe the tourists could respect this is a business and not bring... More

Wow what has happened here? We have not dined in the cafe for at least 6 months. We were regulars always in the warmer weather. Great location on a sunny day. The menu now offers mostly fried food and the remaining few things had not changed in 6 months. We all selected toasted focaccias, they were surprisingly OK. However, as... More

This restaurant is such a wasted opportunity. They have a fabulous location with a fabulous view all of which is wasted by less than average food and very average service. My food ( barramundi) was inedible , dry, tasteless , definitely not fresh and should never have left the kitchen. Unless they change the kitchen staff we would never eat... More
