“Beer OK food disappointing”
Review of Bluetongue Cafe - CLOSED

Bluetongue Cafe
Price range: $5 - $17

Dining options: Breakfast, Reservations
Description: An authentic Italian dish always starts with the best flour, garden fresh tomatoes, and the best quality local produce. Then of course matched to a great wine. Sound simple ... We make all our own pasta and sauces from scratch , in the traditional Italian way. Our restaurant also features a glass fronted air-conditioned wine cellar where we have wines from all over the world including some rare vintage wines from local private cellars.

We turned up for a late lunch. 10 minutes after ordering a burger and cococnut prawns we were told that they had run out of prawns, so I picked the ginger beer battered fish and chips. My husband's burger was nothing more than a meat ball on a bun - no sauce or mayo and my fish was very disappointing. It is always sad when the best part of your meal is the chips.

We stopped here on our wine tour for lunch and beer & wine tasting. We all had a great time. This review is only for this experience since we didn't stay here overnight. Lunch was good, it came with our tour so I'm not sure what their regular menus has.

The Bluetongue Brewery was fun. A friend got the flight and seemed to enjoy it immensely. It came on this paddle which was fun. And in another area was the Cellar Door wine tasting room with lots of different wines from the area to try.

Firstly I love Blue Tongue beers so if you do avoid this place it will ruin your thoughts of the beer. Food was slow and of poor quality. Beer was good to try but the line up was massive. Much prefer Potters or Murrays.
