The title says it all. The operators are old hands at hospitality. For a coffee or meal with personality and warmth Aquacaf does it all. Great staff, quality meals. The coffee is brilliant. The view second to none.

Lovely to be in the sun by the water with delicious food. Fabulous mushrooms and lovely corn fritter. Mahalia coffee gets my vote for best coffee every time.

One of our favourite places when in Goolwa. You find a comfortable seat near the window, order your meals and/or coffee and relax while watching the calming water scene outside. Their coffee is very nice, I know, and we will be back another time soon.

Arrived for 'brunch' at around 11.45am. Breakfast menu cuts out at 11.30, so it was the lunch menu. Great options. Meat, seafood, soups, vegetarian options. Not the cheapest meal that we have ever had, but good quantity for the price and beautifully fresh. Great service...More

We have loved this place in the past but this time we were left a little disappointed. It’s still good but a bit overpriced for the quality of food it serves and the size of the meals. Still a nice place for a special lunch,...More

Hi, no sorry, we are closed Christmas day. I believe the Goolwa Golf club is open or the Anchorage in Victor Harbour.
