We went here once and will never go back. The food was actually really good, but the service let it down so much that we couldn't enjoy anything. We started getting our order taken by an older lady, then halfway through a young girl was asked to step in. She took forever to write everything down, but at least she was getting it. First when we (finally) got our drinks, 2 of which were wrong (we only ordered 4...) When the guy then stepped in to take our order, he was very sarcastic about getting the correct drinks and we felt we were in the wrong just for asking for lemon lime and bitters (all he had to do was open a bottle). The burgers came out first, one was asked for without relish and the young girl realised they both had relish, the beefburger was meant to be without. One was meant to be a venison burger, but she obviously didn't have a clue which one so just picked one to set down and took the other away. No-one came to take away our plates at the end, we felt we were ignored and also witnessed another man enter the premises and get virtually ignored too. Considering there isn't many options if you are staying a few nights in Mole Creek, there service made sure we didn't go back here again. The Hotel has much better service.

Stop for a late lunch, waitress served us very quickly for drinks. After receiving our drinks our food order was also taken very quickly, the food arrived within a very short time, it was hot, delicious and plentiful, and we all loved the experience.

We will return.

There's not many options when looking for dinner in Mole Creek. This is one of them and we're glad we came here. The food was excellent. Both food and drinks were well priced. The service was mixed. The female waitress was great. But later when she was busy and we asked to order dessert from a male worker we felt like he was really being put out by us annoying customers. Apart from that it was great.

Went in here to use the phone when my car broke down. The guy was so helpful and friendly i stayed for breakfast which was fantasic. Such a nice place and the service was so friendly and the gentleman was full of local knowlage and advice. Its a shame you could easily drive past it in a rush for the caves like i did.

You may not believe this could be found in such a small town - food was as good (if not better) as the trendy cafes in Sydney. We had a delicious spicy soup and a fish with salad. Fish arrived a little late but it was absolutely worth the wait. The service was fast and friendly. The restaurant was clean and comfortable.
