Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The setting was great, the staff and owner were great, the food and service was great. We sat outside for lunch to admire the beautiful gardens that Michael and the staff have made.

Been past this restaurant for years but today finally went in to check them out. Our experience was amazing. The food was awesome, the boss Michael was very welcoming, friendly, courteous & funny. Nothing was overlooked & the other staff were also great. Sitting outside...to eat is amazing with the awesome gardens to look at. The three different meals had were all befitting the place & surrounds, awesome & extremely delicious. A much appreciated touch from Michael was the candle bought out with our son’s desert for his birthday we briefly mentioned on arrival. On asking if accommodation was available the answer was no, however no charge to camp or caravan in the back car park as long as self contained. Already planning to do that later in the year with others, could think of no better place to do this. Our first time here but certainly won’t be our last.More

Love this gem of a restaurant, owners and staff are wonderful and always get a lovely welcome. Food is superb and fresh with an extensive menu to order from. The gardens are a tropical oasis and quite beautiful and an amazing back drop to the...restaurant. They not only do amazing food but have great live music nights. Whether its coffee and cake, I highly recommend the homemade scones and jam or full lunch or dinner this place is perfect.More

We had lunch here as a group and there was a variety of meals. The $15.90 specials are good value with a nice selection of meals. I had the crumbed garfish and received 2 nice pieces. The chips were fantastic, nice and crispy on the...outside but fluffy potatoes. The waffles for desert were nice, but a bit expensive. The staff were friendly and attentive, but it did take some time for our meals to come. It was also disappointing to know that they do charge a credit card surcharge. The sign for this is small and by the cash register at the bar. This charge is just a part of their business expenses and to charge customers for that is a bit rude, especially as people are using cards due to Covid.More

The kids had mocktails specially ordered. It was nice. The salmon was a bit dry. The fish and chips was amazingly fresh. The highlight was the thick cut chips. They was mildly crisp outside and juicy inside. The chicken schnitzel was good but the sauce...had a sweet floral aroma of rose water. That was a little off our taste. The garden ambience is nice and would love to go back in the evening … I believe it would be an enchanting experience then.More

We stopped in for lunch on the way to Strathalbyn from Langhorne Creek. First impressions weren't great in light of the signage and there being two driveways. We then parked and walked in what seemed to be a bit of a maze to find where...we actually had to go in. Food was fine as was service. Bit disappointed that they charged a creditcard surcharge without telling me first and then when I queried this I was told that there was a sign somewhere advising me of this but no specific reference where the supposed sign was. Upon leaving we realised that we hadn't seen another sign directing us to park closer and walked out past the goat pen, and my friend enjoyed patting the goats. So a few things to work on but overall worth visiting.More

We called in on the way to the wineries on the spur of the moment and are so glad that we did. Really friendly staff squeezed us in despite lots of booking and we were lucky enough to be there for the Friday lunchtime special...menu. We both chose the Barramundi coated in Panko & lemon crumbs, cooked perfectly with a nice salad and chips. We washed it down with glasses of local whites from the area. Total bill - $45.90. We will return! They only open Thursday to Sunday, so it pays to book. The garden is a tropical delight and the whole area a credit to the owners. Quite lovely.More

Excellent staff, very knowledgeable about their menu and extremely helpful. Food was sensational, we shared the baked Camembert with poached pear, honey, walnuts (normally also includes prosciutto), thoroughly enjoyed. As a vegetarian I had the crepes which were delicious and the other diner had the...pinko crumbed chicken schnitzel, needless to say we were both very happy with our meals - to say the least. We could not leave without trying the lemon curd tart with strawberry and black pepper ice cream and meringue OMG the pastry, lemon curd and all other elements were out of this world. Highly recommend this restaurant, whilst it is a bit of a drive, it is well worth it. Thank you to the fantastic staff, well done, will definitely try to make it back.More
