We got a really friendly welcome here and the service throughout was very good. There’s a tasty range on the breakfast menu which included toasted muesli, yogurt and mixed berry compote (which I love). It was one of the best I’ve had, I guess they make their own muesli, the berry compote was sweetened, but still very much on the right side of tart and the yogurt was plain - all perfect. I’m told the poached eggs were just as good and we both loved the coffee. We really recommend this place!

Service was friendly but food was disappointing. Pumpkin soup lacked flavour and Greek salad was very overpriced. $15 for a few lettuce leaves, couple of olives, few chunks of underripe tomato and a sprinkling of feta. Not sure it was dressed in olive oil (was a flavourless oil) and no vinegar.

We stopped in for lunch here as many do on our Great Ocean Road trip having just been to the Twelve Apostles. A quick walk up and down the high street and Waves was the only place that seemed particularly welcoming. Albeit out of season so not particularly busy, the staff made us feel very welcome and we’re attentive throughout. The food was lovely, served very promptly and good value for money. Vegetarian options available too.

We had to book in March, but that was due to space. The food was excellent so imagine people knew that before they came.
