We had the most delicious breakfast here this morning. The eggs Benedict with salmon and scrambled eggs with hash brown and spinach were superb. Lovely staff, quick service and great coffee plus a lovely outlook. Just what we needed thank you!

Lovely little spot to stop for breakfast. With views over the Ovens River. Food is very good, though on the expensive side. Great service.

Met with indifference, served by several, remembered by none, forgotten orders, inedible food, separated curry sauce over the worst of chicken off cuts, pita as naan, battered fish from a box at Coles. One could go on. If this is tourism as a way of...making living, and enthused by a post-COVID world, then please just close the doors.More

A solo lunch on the deck for me yesterday whilst waiting to pick up kids from Mystic MTB Park. I ordered the fish & chips - NZ whiting. It came with a lovely side salad, lemon wedge & house made tartare for an extra $1....The house made tartare was a nice touch rather than the pre made squeeze packets. I had a local sparkling apple juice which is from just up the road at Wandiligong. The service was great, current COVID procedures in place and my meal came out promptly and was nice and hot. I’m a repeat customer so it’s nice to see the quality and service continue be be spot on. Meal cost all up for fish and chips, extra tartare and drink was $24.50 which I was quite happy with.More

The morning was a late sleepin, after coffee we decided to go for a walk around town via the park and river. We could smell the bacon cooking and coffee from across the road from The Riverdeck, we saw it was crowded everyone enjoying the...sunshine dinning outside, it was around 11am and we were lucky to get a table inside and ordered eggs and bacon on toast, coffee, juice for each of us. after 5 mins coffee and juice came, 5 mins later food came out, hot and fresh, a relaxing very tasty meal with great polite staff serving, a fantastic place for a breaky or early lunch, however timings are 8am - 3pm only, and they get busy, but accommodate when they can. a gem of BrightMore

Had breakfast here with my husband. I ordered Granola, fruit , panna cote. The presentation was great, food was good, my beef is... way too little food for the price. My Granola was as big as a tablespoon, with 3 blue berries, a dop of...yogurt = $16. Way too expensive!!More

Lovely location for a late family lunch. Sat outside on the deck which is undercover. We ordered Riverdeck Burgers (one with gluten free bread) and pancakes with ice cream followed by coffee. Food and cuppuccino very good. Friendly staff but service could be further improved...as we had to ask for the drinks list and to order coffee. The table was also only partly cleared after our meal.More
