We arrived just before "the crowd", my, it did get busy. But I can see why, the food choice was very wide, food quality was very good and the portions were quite large. Slightly on the expensive side though, but with limited competition, what can you expect? Well worth the visit

Ordered a lamb salad, which is out of this world- the veggies are fresh and the lamb are cooked perfectly. Had a table by the window- great view and had a nice break from driving around great ocean road.

Great service from the moment we walked in, for both breakfast one day and dinner the next. For breakfast we had an eggs benedict and another egg dish. The following day we went back for dinner. We had a bottle of Australian wine, a lamb dish and a steak dish, which was one of the more outstanding meals we had... More

Good meal. Generous servings. Port Campbell was very busy over Easter but Waves was able to give us a table for dinner.

They were friendly but the service could have been more attentive and they accidentally gave me non-gluten free toast. Tried to get their attention - waitstaff needs to keep a better eye on the tables. Hot cholocate tasty.

My partner, myself, and a friend stopped by the restaurant for lunch around 1;30pm. We were staying in Colac for two nights to conveniently access the different attractions. We were not impressed with the sandwiches which my partner and myself ordered. My friend ordered the fish and chips, he had to ask for the tartar sauce and he was not... More

This was a welcome place to find open at 8:30am as the rest of Port Campbell was closed. So we went inside for breakfast. For cereal for two people and eggs on toast for 4 it cost $100. It sadly is not unusual this entire township of Port Campbell is over expensive and takes tourists for granted. My personal view... More
