We were pleasantly surprised - even delighted - by the high standard of this little restaurant. The meal was easily the equivalent of an up-market restaurant in a capital city. The room service option was welcome, and we particularly appreciated the dessert being delivered half an hour or so later, to ensure the amazing in-house created ice-cream arrived in perfect...

Mushroom was tasty. The ABC Tilba Cheese board consisting of Aged Cheddar, 3 Udders Brie, Super Blue all made locally was excellent. A nice Shiraz heled the eye... More

Before anything else if you're a mussel fan you need to try the mussels. They come from Eden and are plump and delicious. The view is beautiful as the restaurant sits on a point. Staff were great. Attentive but not intrusive. Prices were very reasonable.

Excellent high quality local produce and stunning ocean views. The serving sizes are just right - so you can have entree, main and desert. Try them all! Staff knowledgeable and friendly.

We went to Narooma to play in a tennis tournament and we found this lovely restaurant. A pleasure to be there, plenty of character, two different rooms, very nice staff. We loved it and this year we are going to overnight there too. Great experience.

The views are stunning and it is a shame the food does not match it. However the oysters were fabulous but that is where it stopped.The fish was overcooked, the lamb dry, and the desserts, although they looked fabulous, were not very tasty at all.
