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.

Spontaneously visited the local in Metung one of the best decisions I made! Grabbed some takeaway because there wasn’t a super long line absolutely delicious food and some of the best ice cream I have ever had. All the ingredients are extremely fresh and can...tell it is made locally and fresh. I will 100% recommend this to anybody visiting the area , a bit of a hidden gem.More

We'd had a very good lunch at Metung Hotel and decided to have a wander through the town. We spotted The Local and, having read the rave reviews of the crispy lamb, we decided to get an order of it to have for our dinner....Trays of the lamb dish were spread out on the counter and one of the staff put one in the pizza oven to reheat it. I noticed that, whilst it is described as lamb with crushed kipfler potatoes etc it looked a lot more like potatoes with a little bit of lamb. As it turned out, that was probably a blessing because the lamb was more hard than crunchy and the whole dish was very oily/buttery. Very disappointing, especially when I had the lamb salad a couple of days later at Pier 70 at Paynesville and the lamb in that was plentiful and fantastic. Yes, it was $38 as opposed to the $23 we paid for the lamb dish at The Local but the difference in quality was quite dramatic.More

Pizza was very well put together. The pulled pork pizza was great. Just enough toppings. Capricosa was also well put together. Wildfired thin base. For dessert must try the ice cream - very different flavours that seem to be changed regularly. You can tell the...owners take pride in their food. Locals also are regulars.More

I’m afraid winter and the ensuing rising costs for food seems to have pushed most food places in Metung to really skimp on their ingredients. rather than put up their prices This seems to be the case at The Local. Prices are good… The pizza...was tasty… when you got a bit of duck. I’ve honestly never seen such a lack of toppings ! The crispy lamb with kephlers was very nice. The plain salad… browning iceberg lettuce, a tiny smatter of cucumber chopped minutely and no dressing. That was sad.More

What a fabulous recommendation & find! Predominately takeaway, there a few tables & chairs in a side courtyard type thing, but in this perfect part of the world takeaway and picnic somewhere special. The most devine wood fired pizzas, perfectly cooked & featuring fresh &...local produce. There is also a selection of seasonal salads, again featuring fresh & local, oh and the yum yum yum roast potato salad with goats cheese. Boutique beers also available to take away. Seriously what’s not to loveMore

Ordered take away pizza from here twice. Friendly and quick service. Creative menu. Tried the Smoked Salmon, Pumpkin Curry (with Slow Cooked Lamb) and Roast Duck. All tasted as good as they sound! Reasonable prices. Recommended.

Instead of having pizza we thought we would try the crunchy lamb. Friendly staff took our order for pick up at 6pm. Very clean and nice looking shop with excellent décor.. Beautiful big pizza oven on view instore. Our meals were $19 each but well...worth it as the servings were quite generous. Very different but very tasty. The pizzas looked great and there are quite a few salads to add to your order. Also, try one of their take away ice creams. Sooo good.More

We haven't had pizza this good since we were in Italy! My partner and I enjoyed an authentic Garlic Pizza with Serrano Ham for entree, followed by our generous main courses of Crispy Lamb. Slow cooked lamb shoulder, crushed Kipfler potatoes with spinach, tomatoes and...creamy goats cheese. YUM! Dessert was a luscious Apple Crumble accompanied by their amazing home made Vanilla icecream. Beautiful, fresh food at reasonable prices, and made with love. My only complaint is that this great little restaurant isn't in Melbourne! Keep up the great work :)More

Excellent pizza. We ordered 6 different types, all great including the crisp lamb! Better than those in Melbourne. The dessert and ice-cream are not to missed. Definitely recommended to try when in Metung.

Everyone agreed, the pizza is phenomenal-probably the best we have ever had! We had the Pumpkin Curry, Duck and the 3 Little Pigs. They were cooked quickly given it was a Friday night, and a nice selection of drinks to choose from. The staff were...helpful and friendly, and it was a very nice dining experience being able to watch the dough being rolled out.More

The chef is passionate about local produce and that passion is evident in the quality of his dishes. They are excellent. Also excellent is the price point! Often places give you pizzas that are so huge you either go home and don't sleep because you've...stuffed yourself silly, or you waste because you only eat half of them. These pizzas are really a perfect size, with a price to match, that allows you to add on one of their delicious looking salads or a side/entre/dessert. 5 minutes cook time. Honestly, what's not to love here? I'll be back, again, and again, and again!More

We had 3 take away pizzas from here a couple of weeks ago - I know that mine was one of the best that I have had in a long time - the fact that both my husband and son polished theirs off in one...sitting is testamony to the great meal that it was. We also had a garlic pizza which was the perfect entree. If you are looking for a quick and delicious takeaway I would highly recommend.More

Cosy little spot to enjoy a glass of local wine or beer. We didn’t eat but the pizza smelled fantastic, and we were regretting having a reservation elsewhere.

Light crispy and thin pizza base that was super tasty. Toppings weren’t smothered over pizza but served to compliment the base. Glad we tried it! Some beers were interesting to say the least!
