Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We found this lovely little cafe on our recent visit to Port Campbell and ordered breakfast - the egg and bacon rolls were so delicious we came back again the next morning! My partner had another egg and bacon roll and I tried the eggs...Benny which was equally scrumptious. The coffee was strong and hot just how I like it. Lovely atmosphere overlooking the beachfront. Perfect 👌More

Lovely place for dinner, sitting near a window with sun streaming in and overlooking Port Campbell water front. My Thai chicken salad was delicious and my husband very much enjoyed his crispy pork belly and salad. The local Spikey Moses beer was great.

The burger contained undercooked beef. The chips similarly had not been sufficiently cooked. Atmosphere was fine although a couple of waitresses were ever so slightly grumpy. The bar serves alcohol as well as soft drinks.

We visited for breakfast and all 4 of us loved our meals. They open at 9.30am and about 10 people were already ordering when we walked in. I thought we would have a long wait for our meals but they came very promptly. Really like...that they have local free range eggs, local ham and other regional products. The staff were exceptionally friendly and the restaurant has a great view of the Port Campbell beach. We were only in town for one night but I wish I could have tried dinner as well! Four very happy customers.More

Outstanding menu- creative options and plenty of traditional options, all delicious. Very reasonable prices for an artfully presented high cuisine level accessible food. Pork bell entree, curry cauliflower soup, or burger- everything was wonderful. Nice wine list too. Brilliant house made desserts. Outstanding service.

Best fish and chips in a long time. Staying in town for 1 night and it’s pretty obvious that the restaurants in town aren’t competing on price. But I am glad I chose this one because the meal was delicious. So totally recommend…

Stopped in for lunch after doing the 12 Apostles, great spot across from the foreshore, probably the best view in town, and very cosy. The ravioli (lunch special), burgers and steak sandwiches all went down a treat. Meals were quick, delicious, and good value. The...staff were all quite young but very polite and attentive. Young team members were working hard and manager was 100% onto everything. Will return!More

Ate dinner here just before sunset on a warm, sunny late March afternoon. It was lovely sitting on the outside deck area, protected from the slightly chilly breeze by the shoulder high glass screens. We received a friendly welcome and guided as to how to...order. Our meals were great, I had the pumpkin and quinoa salad, my husband had Taiwanese chicken. Both were delicious and very generous portions. I'd definitely return if we were staying longer!More

Not everywhere is open on a Sunday night in Port Campbell. This place seemed a good option with indoor and outdoor seating and a menu that looked as though it had plenty to choose from. We booked and it’s lucky we did, it was full....You order and pay at the bar. There were no oysters left. We ordered entrees and had been eating for about 3 minutes when our main courses arrived . We couldn’t fit everything on the table. The waitress suggested we put the entrees onto one plate so we could have room for the mains ! My tip is order your entrees, then when you’ve finished go and order your mains ! The pumpkin and quinoa salad was delicious, so were the buffalo wings and pork belly but the attitude with the service was dreadful.More

Waited over half an hour for two burgers whilst restaurant was not very busy on a Wednesday lunch. Fries on one serving were stone cold yet the other hot. Very average burgers and below average service. Only good thing was the view.
