A simple place, with white plastic tables. The food is simple as well, but tasty. The staff were really nice and welcoming. Just next door is a bar, where you can buy drinks.

We were doing a day of wandering back roads and came upon this spot, recommended by friends...and we were delighted with the find. The location is nice, very quiet with a bit of local history around and a lovely view, albeit becoming rather warm on the upstairs balcony as the sun moved onto us. The food was superb, not cheap...

Relaxed, friendly atmosphere; top service, good variety of tasty meals. A little noisy when the bistro is full - poor acoustics. Highly recommended eatery in this lovely village.

We were passing through Gladstone on the sunny Queen's Birthday holiday; the Darkwater Brasserie was busy but luckily still had tables free. There was plenty on the main menu to choose from and all the meals I saw being delivered to tables looked tasty. We both had Chicken Schnitzels which were good, as were the accompanying chips & salad. Having... More

Ate at the Gladstone Hotel for the second time on the weekend and throughly enjoyed it! I had previously visited over the Easter long weekend 2014. I had a pork belly special and it was one of the most amazing pork bellies I had ever eaten, succulent and delicious with a beautiful array of veggies as an accompaniment. The restaurant... More

The Heritage Hotel does have great food, though the three times we have eaten there it always seems to run out of the best options quite early in the evening. This is a great place for a party, and I suggest you book upstairs on the veranda if the weather allows, as the views to the river are great, those... More
