On previous trips to Jindabyne we tried to get a reservation at this Cafe but were unlucky due to its popularity and the fact that it only seats about 30 guests. Happily, we got a table this time and gosh was it worth the wait!...More

This family run business delivers an exotic menu of divine flavours. The service is warm and friendly and the food quality is consistently excellent. The restaurant capacity is limited so no ok really to avoid disappointment.
