Currently this is Eden’s only functioning hotel. It is in the Main Street and has a verandah/deck across the back with views to Twofold Bay. Staff were friendly and hard working. Food was a cut above the usual pub fare. Worth a visit.

A cruise ship had docked in Eden for the day and a huge sumber of their guests decided to have lunch at this venue. It seemed surprising that although the bistro knows well in advance which days the ship will be in town they did...More

We use TripAdvisor a lot when selecting restaurants. Having read previous reviews we were unsure about this place and initially just went there for a drink. We sat out on the large deck at the back which doesn’t have a sea view (blocked by another...More
