“A wonderful birthday dinner for 6.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

We have not visited here for awhile and they are so busy they now have 2 sittings on weekends. We were there for first sitting at 6pm so there were few diners so service was fast and very friendly. The menu is broken into various categories such as Tasting Plates, Pizzas, mains, pub Favorites, kids Meals, Desserts.
We opted for a Main course and Dessert only, but tasting platters consisted of cured and smoked small goods, smoked and pickled fish and calamari and ash Chèvre cheese with balsamic and mixed Olives and were $17-$19. There was also a range of Pizzas ranging from $20-25.
We chose as mains Saltbush Lamb Shanks with roasted Vegetables, pea purée and garlic jus, a real hit that was superbly cooked and just fell off the bone. The other choice was local Mulloway, baked kifler potatoes, chorizo, Spanish onion, capers, baby spinach and Salsa Verde, a wonderful fresh and delicious choice, that was a taste sensation!
Other mains were steaks $33-35, Kangaroo $28, prawn and crab linguini $27, crab cakes $26, or warmThai salad $23. There was also a seafood platter for two for $60, salt and pepper squid $25, Coorong mullet $25 or pork and sage sausages with mash $20.
Desserts were priced at $10-13, but their range of Cocolat dessert choices was too hard to pass up. We chose Rocky Road, Lime and Passionfruit cheesecake, Baileys embrace and Hazelnut delight all $10 and all delicious.
A wonderful evening and dinner and we would recommend this for lots of different occasions.

“gone down hill since last there”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

first time in easter it was one of the best dinning experiances we have had.
this time Jan 2013 it was poor. Nothing more than a noisey bistro with expensive prices. They must have changed cooks in this time as my lamb shank had very little sause / gravey on it. All other meals were not that great and poorly presented. Might see if they improve next time but will not be bringing family and friends as we did this time thinking it would be the same.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Was recommended this venue for a meal while staying in Pt Elliot, but unfortunately will not be back. Prices far to excessive compared to value, shank had no flavor and service was non existent. A lot of work to do for this venue.

“Disappointed Again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Fri night for dinner with best friends ended up a shocker. Had a under cooked fish last yr so thought to give it another go. Salads were soggy and some not dressed. Veg tart was tasteless lacked flavour. Chips were soggy and cold, how hard is it to fry chips. No stands for wine buckets had to put on the floor, guess what, they got knocked over twice. They have been advertising for chefs lately and it is no wonder. Won't be coming back. Very disappointing as we come down here every year to the caravan pk. And want to support the locals.
