We stayed 4 days in Picton and tried all the waterfront restaurants at least once. Le Cafe had the best food of them all. The fish soup was fantastic!

Had dinner at Le Cafe this week on a very busy night. Good service and the food was very good (bit more sauce on the pasta would be good). Food a little different from the average fare-ie a game dish, home made pasta and the cheaper pasta option. Home made icecream and sorbet was excellent. Food is well priced. Great cafe with the best views over the water in Picton with great indoor & outdoor seating. Love that they have no fried food-so no horrible smells from the kitchen. Recommend this cafe to all visitors.

After reading all the comments on here that people wrote about Le Café makes me laugh that people would waste their lives writing negative insults to make themselves feel better. Le Café is Picton's number 1 restaurant café and bar and I have been going here for years the food is exceptionally high standard with wonderful helpful staff. The view is to die for and the coffee is the best in the world!! The owner makes it all though he is such a catch and will always lend a hand. But to top it all off the LIVE MUSIC is amazing and they are open all the time.
I recommended the Rack of Lamb, Fish, Mussels, or just try the whole menu its worth it.
Very loyal customer :)

Had a table of 8, it was quite clear we wanted food but the ignorant staff were hopeless.We waited 20 minutes in the heat with no water and no service at all.The staff seemed "in a daze" when they finally came over (that's after one person at our table had to go over and ask for some service, which she got with a grunt).When we asked the rude waitress about the menu she was oblivious to everything.She didn't even know know what the soup or the fish was or anything for that matter.She seemed in a hurry and tried to keep taking off everytime a question was fired at her, we all couldn't believe it.She never came back, so one person from our group decided to gather everyone's order and take it up to the bar, cause we were already there long enough and had to go on a job, we felt like it was the only way to get any service.We then tried to get drinks and that was even harder than ordering the food.We would never come back to this dump again, it seemed like no one wanted to work there and they didn't care about anything.Never ever have I found such a restaurant like this one for bad everything.The food wasn't great and wasn't worth the wait or the "vacant zombie" nature we got from the staff.
The funny thing was, we had two celebrity guests with us the whole time and the staff zombies were oblivious to that too, lol.
