This cafe is magnificently sited. However, we were very disappointed with our afternoon tea. The most expensive mocha and 'hot' chocolate we have ever had that would have been worth it if they had been good. However, both were lukewarm and very average taste. We shall not return unfortunately.

The prices certainly match the view but the food and service were very disappointing. It is very busy and there are great bush walking tracks around and people call in to replenish after their walk - or like we did just call in to take in the view. Parking can be difficult and if you dont score a spot in the parking lot there can be quite a walk.
It was just on lunch time when we arrived - busy but not flat out. After being seated we had to ask for the menu and were not shown the blackboard menu. Water was not brought to the table (some tables had bottles) and our coffee was served a good fifteen minutes before the food. I had devonshire tea (which was on the lunch menu) and was informed they had run out of scones and there was only one left. To add insult to injury the cream was the froth out of the spray can. Not what you expect for the prices you pay. My husband had a club sandwich. It was stacked so high that it had to be dismantled to be eaten. What is it with restaurants that think bigger must be better!!! I had been previously for morning tea and enjoyed it but wont be in a hurry to return.

The food here is good and I understand most of it is made on the premesis. On a cool day you often get the bonus of a real log fire and you can bring your own bottle if you wish and pay a corkage charge. The menu is varied and its a nice informal place to eat, this is not a resturant in the usual sense of the word, but you can make advanced reservations and on summer days and weekends this is often advised.

Venue relies on the promise of great views, but food standard pretty ordinary and expensive for what it is. Better off finding a nice cafe in town then hitting the wentworth falls lookout

I took the train from Sydney to see the Victoria falls, called in here when i climbed back up from viewing the falls. Excellent service by friendly staff, warm enough to sit outside on the balcony with a very refreshing pot of tea
