“Good food service can improve”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We went for a quick lunch peak season, so the slow service could be excused. The Trio of Venison was delicious and definitely recommendable. The food took some time to come so some bread while we were waiting would have been appreciated.
We will be returning to try some more of the food when the season is more quiet.

“Fantastic”

Amazing food, wonderful atmosphere, loved the experience. Waitress professional and friendly. Kabeljou was delicious, Chicken ala Pork- out of this world, and garlic mussels to die for!!

“Good food, but the manageress .......”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We had a very nice lunch at Route 57 during December. Despite the crowds of Mosselbay we manage to secure a reservation. We pre booked an outside seating area which was promptly provided to us on our arrival. The food was good and we received value for money. But my word, what attitude from the manageress of the restaurant. Her behavior would deter me from going there again, or recommend the restaurant to anyone.

“Good food and value for your money”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

We had beef schnitzel and the portion was more than enough. Very tasteful. It came with 5 different veggies and a sauce of your choice.Although the waitress was new she really made an effort to make the evening very pleasant. Good choice of background music. I was disappointed when I received the bill and they charged a corkage fee. It was not told to us when we arrived at the restaurant and it was not mentioned in the Wine list. The owner was not to friendly and you also do not correct a waiter/waitress in front of the guests. I will go back to try the other dishes. There is a good selection of wines and it is reasonable priced.
