Bit disappointing, whilst an amazing and unique location, felt a little like a tuckshop.

We had breakfast and it was a bit more like the kind of food you would quickly whip up at home.

Hello there! Its been over a year since you visited the Bach and at the time you felt it was underwhelming :-( We took over ownership in April 2014 and have implemented an array of changes, including a fantastic new chef & menu! We really hope you can pay us another visit sometime soon.

The Bach Cafe is a friendly place to eat right across from the beach. We had the most amazing seafood chowder here served with bread. The chowder was thick, yummy, and brimming with all kinds of seafood. I could eat this daily.

Had lunch there yesterday and was delighted with the quality of the food, the friendly staff, the convivial atmosphere and the prices. There were four of us and we each ordered something different. Each offering was fresh, tasty, well presented and ample servings. Although the restaurant was busy being a public holiday we received our meals quickly and we could have easy conversations without too much background noise.
