We found the staff very friendly and food very good. Whilst we dined a lunch time, the menu had some limitations, but it was at a quiet time for them. Dinner menu looked really nice.

This is actually two different establishments. One is an intimate restaurant that is very well presented. It is well suited to couples or small groups. The other is a very well managed cafe/kiosk which is a must for families when visiting Port Elliott

Stopped here for lunch with friends. The place was clean, the atmosphere great, the staff friendly and the food fantastic! We had seafood platters which were well cooked, and abundant. The tables overlook an amazing view and you can choose to eat inside or out.

Seafood is great, coffee is great, and the staff are great. The Coopers beer battered fish and chips is a must.
