It's simple enough that you can pick off the blackboard--no flipping through pages of mediocre choices--but everything is good. Covered porch eating, with a fun, low-key atmosphere. Save room for dessert!

We wanted more of a restaurant or Bistro rather than just bar food so drove to the end and chose this spot. Horribly disappointed although the menu showed lots of options when we went to order we were informed only the bar menu was avaliable (would help if adverts and menu stated this) the calamari was geasy and horrible and...

Food wise this place was ok, would say it's a shame that the calamari rings are brought in frozen. Should be offering better quality when you think about the location. Bit more of a backpacker joint. Two means at lunch however came to $38 plus drinks - so not too bad either. Don't swim in the water here as the... More

A 'laid back' Bistro with canteen type seating - friendly. We chose the cheap 'inclusive' option - but another time I would go for a la carte.

We had dinner in the bistro during our stay. To be honest I wasn't expecting much but I was proven hugely wrong! The food was absolutely incredible!!! We both had a starter followed by the soy potato, salad and sesame crusted rare tuna. It was better than I've had in a lot of expensive restaurants. Will be back for sure.

No sure what we expected but the food was excellent and so were the staff. Rained most of the weekend but enjoyed our stay immensely

After quite a walk from the car park this hippy looking restaurant has great food at reasonable prices and very friendly staff. Lovely long wooden tables full of happy travellers enjoying this special spot.

We went here as part of a tour, and the food was very good. Husband got the kangaroo and I got the chicken parmesan. Husband was still hungry so he got the carrot cake slice for only $5, but it was a huge slice and hit the spot.

If you get the backpacker special which comes with a beer then this is good value as it works out at £8 for a main course. All the food we ate was fine. Breakfast was expensive and the coffee with the all you can eat buffet was awful as it was out of a packet. I'm not sure how a... More
