“Loud, unfriendly, under staffed, burnt coffee”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Four of us ordered coffee- all four were burnt and tasted disgusting. We told the staff and they made us more although I wish I stuck with the first one! No one seemed to care how our replacements were so we left without drinking them. Waste of money

“Shocking Service”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Stopped in here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Counter staff had no idea what they were doing. Order was wrong when it arrived and the staff were rude and unhelpful.. Will never go back!

“Michelin one star”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

A perfect plate of grunard, new potatoes, salad and roast vegetables put together exquisitely with tuneful dressings and sauces. Wonderful cooking. Why can we not do this in the UK at such decent prices?

“Great food”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

My wife and I ate dinner here a couple of times during our stay in Coromandel - we loved the food and drink. It is one of the best places to eat in Coromandel. Also has take-out in case you're interested. Very good pizza and mussels!

“The best place in town for deserts!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

This is a very friendly, family orientated place, the standard fayre of pizza etc is well done and enjoyable. Staff are very friendly and good at their jobs.
Prices are very reasonable
What really stands out is the deserts - this place is well known to locals for the deserts they do. Definitely the best place in town for deserts!
They're all good but the russian fudge sundae is something to go back for again, and again, and again!
