“Nice vibe but bring moxie repellent”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I had been here a year ago and it was fabulous. It closed and recently opened only on Sundays. It is a lovely relaxing vibe sitting on a deck under mango trees BUT be warned the kitchen is really slow so bring a book or a good conversationalist also there were heaps of mosquitoes at lunch when we went that were very bitey so bring repellent!!! Food not as good as before and is pricey.

“Overpriced, inconvenient, organo-indulgent”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

NOTE: Did not eat the food.

Drove to the cafe after getting rave reviews from friends and colleagues for the last 18 months. Go th tere to find there's no EFTPOS only after being seated (sign is on the inside of the cafe not outside or at the counter). Scrounge up cash between my wife and mother-in-law only to find that $85 wouldn't be enough for three adults and two kids to eat anything except bread and water. Waitress brings over water, glasses are straight from the dishwater and boiling hot. I'm all for organic sensibilities but when your mains are $35+ and there's no kids menu to speak of you're taking the mickey. Not having EFTPOS in the 21st Century is just lazy retail service ie bad.

Good points? The decked restaurant area was nice enough, sitting under mango trees and the acoustic guitarist/singer was a nice touch.

“Only now open on Sundays?”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

This was our 2nd visit, the 1st being 2 years ago. All was just as good and another unforgettable lunch! Food is awesome and the Kangaroo Rendang is a must try.

BUT to our surprise they may be closing. At the moment only open sundays.
Would love to return here again so hope that it is still open in a few years. If not it will be a huge loss. So for anyone thinking about going i would try check with Broome visitor centre as there is no contact.

“Great stop off on journey from Broome to Derby”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We usually stop here for lunch when we are travelling from Broome to Derby. Dining area is on a raised timber deck and shaded by mango trees, with chooks scratching around underneath. Excellent healthy food that is fresh and good variety.
