“Promised so much, delivered so little”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

I had read the reviews on Tripadvisor after wanting to eat there for a couple of years. We thought it would be quaint after seeing the exterior. The buffet is out the back in what looks like a RSL club. Zero atmosphere and could care less staff. Food so ordinary it was a struggle to pick something that wasn't dried out or trays empty. The layout of the buffet made no sense with savoury food, then sweet food, then back to savoury in one line. I would advise anyone visiting Hahndorf to avoid what appears to be value for money but for me, it's quality over quantity.

“Value for money”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Had dinner here and as a couple with 2 young children it was definately value for money. Plenty of food to choose from and what you would normally expect from an all you can eat buffett. Only negative point would be is that as first customers at 6pm the restaurant was still dirty from breakfast/lunch??
Staff very friendly.

It's such a novel looking place, being an old mill converted to a restaurant. Alwyas great food and food specials, and freat beers and wines.

“Cheap Chewsday such value”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We just happened to get there on a Tuesday (which is their Cheap Chewsday) we were bit apprehensive thinking cheap may mean not much selection and cheapest food but then again tossing up the other places with all the German Fare like bratwurst and other german snaggers & big chops etc and thought was just a meat overload.
Plenty of fish going at the buffet, but well, there was every type of food imaginable all for $15 each so we could please ourselves and pick at a bit of this and a bit of that. Highly recommended.
