Underneath the new hotel this place rocks with the business lunch crowd. Good coffee and the food is fine if a little expensive. Handy place to meet for a chat with half hour parking usually available for free near enough along Castray.

Lunch here is quickly served with local friendliness and the menu prides itself in using local, fresh, seasonal produce. It is good to see the Patagonian Toothfish back on the menu in restaurants and these fishcakes were excellent. Paired with sparkling elderflower water - it...More

We also are very disappointed that you didn't enjoy your meal. The Taste pie is a small portion, as are most of our meals but we have been serving them on menus in our cafes for almost five years, and we have received many, many...More
