Travelling to Dinner Plain for a much needed break, we were very happy to find this little gem ! We had woodfired pizza, there's no getting away from it, there's nothing better than a well made homestyle pizza. This chefs pizza's are good ! The...best I've had in a long time. They're simple and tastyThe staff are very helpful and have a great sense of humour with prompt service.. Oh, and the cost ? Very reasonable. We'll be back !More

Walked in, no one to greet us, so checked out the tables - plenty available but no-one around, only one waitress, so queued at the bar to be told fully booked, but you can order online, that will be quick and they'll ring when ready....Ordered and paid for pizza, went back to our apartment, and they sent us a text saying it would be ready in 20 mins, but that was just an estimate! Here's an estimate! Minus five stars for you, but I have to give one minimum. An hour later, still nothing, so fronted up at the hotel and they hadn't even started cooking them, "won't take take long", then it took another half an hour. Talk about new heights in tourist town unprofessionalism. Avoid, and NEVER pay for anything in advance here. Oh, and the pizza was tiny, overpriced and with stingy, sub standard toppings.More

Went to the Ramada and the Pub on the main circuit. Kept coming back to this one, easily the best atmosphere, cheaper drinks and an interesting menu. Parking a bit of an issue but Dinner Plain isnt that big and perhaps walking home is a...better option than driving anyway.More

Atmosphere was great. Warm and inviting, the cutlery is in a draw under the table which is pretty cool. The pizza my partner got was delicious, they ordered the ‘chill out’ which was a margarita with basil. The pizza base was flawless, light and fluffy,...this pizza itself had a good amount of sauce and cheese. A friend got the ramen, also delicious, except there was a lump of noodles all stuck together in it. I got the muscles, the sauce was tasty, however most of the muscles weren’t de-bearded properly and I spent half my time inspecting the muscle before I ate it. The bread that came with it tasted burnt. I also got the Parmesan cheese croquette, so did another friend. They were honestly pretty bland, and obviously two different batches as some were soft and silky in the middle and others were like dried out mash potato. The two different batches came out on the same plate. We got the Nutella Doughnuts for dessert, they weren’t great. The doughnut was pretty dense and thick and there was next to no Nutella in them. The service was super friendly, 10/10, however it took a while to get drinks brought to the table. If they didn’t have the delicious pizza I probably wouldn’t go back, and I found it difficult to believe they would charge between $25 - $35 for a pizza. They charge an exorbitant amount and try to have a ‘finer dining’ style menu but unfortunately I feel they fall quite short of that; the lumpy noodle, poorly cleaned muscles, Nutella-less nutella doughnuts, I expected better for the prices they’re asking for their meals. Shout out to the awesome waiting staff, when we complained about the doughnuts they took them off the bill!More

The staff are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Beautiful atmosphere, especially with the fires alight. Worth booking on busy weekends, the meals are generous and great quality.

I had wood fired pizza which was yuuuuummmmmy, and had it changed to my liking, which was no problem at all for the chef. Hubby had awesome meal and we couldn't fit in desert. Great size meals.

This was a welcomed experience we really enjoyed... it was only after our first visit did the team remember us and continued to welcome us back every time we visited after like we had been coming for years not days! Also, a great tip is...the lunch bar menu is a really nice spot after a morning of skiing!More

Great food here always ... full credit to the chef! The only complaint we have is that every republican me we go here and order an entree and mains they both come out together!! This has happened on three occasions now even after we asked...the staff for it not to happen. They always seem a little short staffed on the restaurant floor which brings the service and experience down a little.More
