Had the open chicken grill. Nice but a little soggy from salad dressing seeping across the plate. Salad was a little old. Service was quick and friendly. Might need to try something else next time. Lovely grounds and setting.

Description
Arkarra Tea Gardens is a gorgeous relaxing café set on two acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. Lose yourself for a while by sipping locally roasted espresso coffee or quality T2 teas in your own bali hut as you listen to the local birdlife. You can also indulge in our homemade sweet treats or a scrumptious savoury lunch made by our fantastic chef. We have a great selection of Gluten free and vegetarian meals as well as catering for the little ones. Let our happy friendly staff serve you and give you a wonderfully memorable experience. There is plenty of scenery to enjoy as you let the world slip away for a short while. When you are refreshed consider going for a short walk around the adjoining lagoons for even more natural beauty. Come and see why it is the worth the short drive to visit us at Arkarra Tea Gardens.
