Awesome tasting food and fantastic service from very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant always seemed to be busy and I can understand why after dining there.

Mrs. Gruntfuddock and I had dinner here on three occasions and also stopped in for a few sherbet's in the afternoon. We had the Laksa, three times as it was the best one we have had outside Asia and all credit to the chef...great food. But sadly some of the staff were quiet grumpy. Saying this, most were nice enough... More

Meals were a little disappointing and expensive. My lamb shank happened to be fatty, although other meals were ok.

Rob G, Owner at Settlers Tavern, responded to this review

Dear Stefan, We think you may have confused Settlers Tavern Margaret River with another venue. We do not normally serve pepper sauce with our steaks, and we do not have table service for wine, but rather counter service, where patrons collect their wine from the bar themselves. It is also rare that there would only be a couple patrons in... More

It moves slowly. It is possible to confuse the food line with the drink line [which we did--fortunately the staff caught our error and directed... More
