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.

We wanted a seafood dinner as an early Anniversary treat, since there are not many decent seafood Restaurants near us we decided to give the Caravan a run and spend some time in Pambula. We were encouraged by the reviews that we had read and...were not disappointed. We chose the Seafood platter for two with some sparkling wine and Pinot Grigio to compliment the platter. The platter was even better than our expectations, the freshest osters that we had ever had, the flathead tails were better than the previous best tails that we had in Beauty Pint Tasmania. Great service, great meal and good ambience, will visit again when we are in the area again.More

The food was disappointing and well over priced. The entrees was mean - small and not much flavour. The main course fish was okay, but very bland and uninteresting. Even the sides had nothing to raise it above the ordinary. Will not be back as...it seems the menu lacks of quality and taste. Not in for more disappointment, as there are much better restaurants or clubs in Merimbula. Can do it better at home!More

The takeaway from this establishment is hands down the worst value for fish and chips ever. Apart from not receiving what we ordered, had to ask the cashier to check our order, who promptly told us to stand aside and she would check after she...had served those waiting to order. So there we stood. Out partial order in a cardboard box going cold. Some considerable time later, “oh yes, I can see your order now, apologies “. Part of the missing order was then passed over, it wasn’t until we had returned to our holiday accomodation we discovered more cold items were missing. Apart from this the quality and quantity of the battered fish was terrible, a small flat fillet of nothing, you can get better in a frozen box from Aldi. The accompanying chips also left a lot to be desired. It is never a problem if what you pay for is what you get but we felt absolutely ripped off. Wheelers please employ people that have people skills, not a cranky individual manning a cash register that cannot even take an order correctlyMore

Very disappointing evening. Service was terrible, waitress paid no attention to our group. Food was over cooked, flavourless. Meals all came out at staggered times, therefore we were unable to share our entrees and all ate separately. We don’t mind paying high price for food...if the quality and service is there. There was no quality here in the food and I don’t think they know what the definition of service is. Save your money and try somewhere else.More

There are moments in a culinary journey that need to be shared. Especially when the planets just align. Many eateries only claim to deliver above the median, but lack the components required to achieve excellence. Come with me now as you discover how this one...hit it out of the park. Arrived early, no issue, a little juggling and table ready. And not stuck in the corner, got a view and a breeze. Sarah took control right from the first word,- I want to make it very clear to you that her humility will overpower you and you will just let it happen, whether novice or seasoned - good wine list and food selection, don’t come here looking for a parma and a pot!!!..LOL. Orders our pre dinner drinks returns with the daily specials and our wine, then the real show began, the theatre from her was outstanding, refreshing, engaging and a pure delight to have experienced and I would steal her away in a heartbeat, if I was still in the game. and I thought i came here just to eat. The oyster starters arrived, stunning, so we did them again just in case we were dreaming. The show continued, now with a healthy banter on both sides and even my quiet partner was drawn into the fray. Suggestions for main, were accepted and to my disbelief, more stunning quality with substance and flair and just melt in your mouth. And nothing was too much trouble: ie melted butter! Now desert was really a sorbet, for a change, and we had to extend its life by taking small tastes, just didn’t want it too end. Now what usually happens is the coffee destroys the whole experience, not this time, double shot, not burnt, just enough bitter to drink without sugar, and very reminiscent of espresso from Cafe Greco in Rome. Monte s to finish, Nirvana reached, finally an eating house that delivered on every front, food, staff, sequence, service, ambiance and character. This one will go down as one of our top 5 in there with Tree Tops and Cape Sienna and will be remembered for many years. This is a must when in Merimbula. Happy travelsMore

Location is out of town, but plenty of parking so no hassle. Good service and enjoyed surroundings. We had seafood platter for two. This has fried battered fish, chips, fried scallops, 8 fresh oysters, a crab, prawns. Oysters, prawns, scallops, chips were very good. Fish...was average, and crab was below average. Meal included a small salad, which was ok. Maybe go for two dozen fresh oysters for half the price?More

Since Covid, prices on everything including food and eating out has gone up. In most cases it is understandable and acceptable but not to the point where you are clearly being ripped off. I will pay for a good meal and not complain when it...meets the standard that equals the cost. Wheelers does not meet that standard. I lunched there with a friend, we chose the meals from the menu which also included the prices. Aside from charging $44 for a piece of tasteless fish served in a broth of miso and mushrooms and being charged $21 for a very weak Aperol Spritz and calling it "special request" on the bill, (previously I was charged $17 for the same ) the food at lunch was BLAND BLAND BLAND. I was also shocked to be charged GST on the bill, after the fact. I checked the 'net to confirm if this is now the norm and found - The ACCC requires that businesses include any taxes in the priced displayed on products. This includes GST, which you cannot exclude and add to the price later. Businesses must ensure that they do not mislead consumers by misquoting the price. As a local, I want to support the local eateries etc but I resent being over charged for ordinary food, bland food, boring food. If Wheelers wants to charge Sydney/Melb prices, they need to lift their standards and stop gouging the locals.More

What a huge disappointment. Someone needs to go back to shucking school, 18 out of 24 oysters with grit & shell shards. The fish was shrivelled away from a hard thick batter. The mountain of salad was dwarfed by the ridiculous mound of chips. Then...the waitress hurled a perfectly good Corona into a beer glass. Go figure.More
