“Food and Atmosphere is great”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

The restaurant is on the water and the food is excellent. Watch the pelicans swim by next to you if you are on the deck.
Fast service enjoyable meals whether morning, noon or night.

“Perfect pittstop”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great stop off on way to sydney - food was beautiful, fresh, flavoursome, large servings and gorgeous view. Well worth it! Will come back another time for desert - too full from entree and main.

“Inventive and delicious food!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Breakfast was so delicious, we decided to make Tea Gardens our stop on the way back from Byron. So we have had 2 indulgent Breakfasts' and 1 amazing dinner! At dinner they offer a tasting menu of 4 courses for only $50 which is such great value. Served with a glass of house wine. I would be happy to pay a bit more and get a better quality wine. I thought the wine didn't match the level of food. This is my only issue, and it's a very small one. If you get a chance, try the chocolate mouse dessert. It comes with red skin icecream, chocolate soil and more. I think there is a bit of inspiration here from Heston. We had a palate cleanser with jelly and pop rocks! You must try! We were very happy customers. The coffee is also really excellent.

“Great Food”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The food was excellent, the staff very helpful. A bit cramped on the verandah, but nice to converse with other diners.

“Lived up to its reputation”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

The reviews are completely accurate. The food is sensational. The gluten free options are also excellent. I'm not sure why there are comments about the prices- we felt they were very reasonable as was the wine list. I had the salmon which was perfectly cooked. Others had the salt and pepper calamari which melted in your mouth. Will definitely return. But remember to book in advance.
