Two dinners at Crystal cafe recently (and several dinners some years ago). The menu is extensive with something to choose for everyone - and at reasonable prices. The lamb shanks are recommended and the Eton mess for desert. The accompanying vegetables are cooked just right.

We found this restaurant by chance. Lucky us! Great food - Buffalo wings as an entree, followed by the Spaghetti Chilli Prawns,plenty of Coopers to wash it down, great service - Sue is just lovely!, well priced - under $100!

We enjoyed an evening meal here , initially I wasn't keen on reading the menu BUT it was far nicer than I expected. The waiter?manager?owner was lovely, he was very attentive and friendly. His children were doing schoolwork on the next table. It isn't fine...More

Walked out feeling disappointed. Mashed potato turned me off (i can even make it better) steak tastes ordinary and the gravy has no taste at all its like water + mushroom pieces in it. ☹️☹️☹️ totally disappointed sorry. :( fish and chips overcooked!

I do like the food, but the owners are very rude and that often makes not want to eat there. It's really unfortunate.

Always love their breakfast, with the new menu its even better. If you drop by for lunch or dinner, give the t-bone a miss. The salmon avocado and asahi is fabulous.
