Arrived for 'brunch' at around 11.45am. Breakfast menu cuts out at 11.30, so it was the lunch menu. Great options. Meat, seafood, soups, vegetarian options. Not the cheapest meal that we have ever had, but good quantity for the price and beautifully fresh. Great service from Maitre d' John and cooking by Nick.

We have loved this place in the past but this time we were left a little disappointed. It’s still good but a bit overpriced for the quality of food it serves and the size of the meals. Still a nice place for a special lunch, however it wasn’t very busy, so that might say either quality or price is a bit off the mark.

Hi Jennie, we value all feed back thank you. I would like to point out that no where in Goolwa is really busy at this time of year. We wear the loss of staying open 7 days a week during winter to cater for people who support us all year round.
Our pricing is done on a set formula..unfortunately you have to pay for the view (wages, rates, rent and electricity have all increased not to mention food costs have increased over 10% this year alone.) We have not increased our prices so we are certainly not overpriced.

After a game of tennis my friends and I plus dog enjoyed the winter sun on their terrace.When our coffees were brought out the staff member had a biscuit for our four legged friend. I thought this was a great way to show that dogs are welcome.

Walked around from the Aquatic club to grab a coffee. A very popular little spot of a morning, had the barista going flat out in his little stall at the front of the building. Ordered a Latte and grabbed a paper then sat around at the Aquatic club to watch the junior sailors doing their thing.
A great little venue with a great atmosphere.
