Highly recommended restaurant by our lovely host Noeline at the Buller Court Motel and we we're not disappointed. Great seafood chowder Pork,Venison, Pate and Mussels all cooked to perfection. Only criticism would be a bit more sauce on the pork.

Good food and friendly staff. Popular restaurant enticing enough to return the next evening. All four of our party liked Westport, and the Denniston Dog was an added bonus. Voluntarily recommended by another satisfied diner as we entered.

A most enjoyable meal after a long day's travelling served in pleasant surroundings. A good selection from the Menu and Daily Specials. Reasonably priced and good portion sizes.
