The service is friendly and they have a variety of indoor and outdoor seating options. The menu is somewhat limited but the toasted sambos are OK. The big disappointment was the 'milkshakes. It was basically a small glass of milk with some flavouring. This was...not a typical Australian milkshake and not good at all. Also the price of it was way too much. My advice to GNTP is to make the milkshakes like Jerrys Cafe at Kulnura or Pie In The Sky at Cowan and we'll be back. Overall, is was good but plenty of room for improvement in the food and beverage offerings.More

There's no other atmosphere like it ... so close to Sydney yet you are surrounded by great local folk and a meal format that compliments the country feel so well. Make sure you book.

This was close so that's what we chose. Food was average pub style. The minestrone was nice but all veg and no pasta.

Our drive along Tourist Drive 33 brought us through Laguna, and to Rosa's Kitchen at GNTP. Local produce features on the menu, and on a cold night we had pork loin chops with maple dressing and helped ourselves to fresh salads. Very tasty and well...cooked, hearty meals. The fire was very welcome too and we left well fed and cosy. Staff (including Rosa herself) were very friendly and helpful.More

Enjoyed a great breakfast after camping out at Finchley. Service was very friendly and we had an enjoyable time before our trip back home.

Great menu under Chef Rosa and her friendly team. Small but tasty choice of lamb, steak, salmon, burgers etc and self-help salad bar. Good choice of local and imported beers and wines too. Very rustic dining environment. Real Aussie Bush. Local entertainers some weekends.

We went for lunch with a group of about twenty. We had two tables reserved. We were amongst the first to order food, and were not given numbers. I don't know if this was an oversight. As the people started to order food, they started...giving out numbers. Then the food started arriving. It was hard to say who the orders were for as some of us didn't have numbers, but we managed to sort out who should get the food. Unfortunately some people, mainly those who had ordered beef burgers had a long wait to get their food. There seemed to be some confusion. It was suggested by the waitress that we should have all been put on the same docket. This would have made things worse, I believe, as orders may have been out of order. They only needed to give everyone numbers. And judging by how long it took, I would say that they were understaffed in the kitchen, despite the fact that we had two tables reserved. Having said that, eventually everyone received their food, and it was delicious. I would suggest that it would be nice if they had an all day breakfast, as that is popular now and would give a bit more choice of dishes.More
