We have visited the area extensively over the past 15 years and we only recently discovered this restaurant. The food is really fantastic. The service is great. Don't worry that it's behind the petrol station. It's a little gem.

Don't be put off by the outside(it's attached to a garage!!). The inside is lovely and the food is of a very high standard. I believe they are moving to a better location in the near future but their food is of an excellent quality.

The food is arguably the best in wilderness but the setting next door to the petrol station doesn't help the experience. On top of that we were seated upstairs on the mezzanine floor which was very hot and stuffy.

Food was very mediocre and bland . We all had fish and prawns which were all over cooked. Everything was served on a mountain of cheap rice impregnated with chunks of par cooked cabbage. We had a waitress who kept interrupting while we were talking....More
