I was a little disappointed with the "gallery" aspect of this venue as it really seemed to just be a tourist shop at best. Apparently the breakfast is good here but we didn't stay for a meal.More

A nice location but lacked professionalism. Hard to sit back and relax when big delivery trucks are pulling up in front of the verandah where we were sitting. Staff were pleasant but seemed a bit directionless. Food was ok but way overpriced. I ordered the...More

The food is good with good sized portions. The price is reasonable - not cheap, but not pricey at all. The service is really good and the coffee is smooth. We left there feeling very content and happy.

Description
NESTLED IN NATIVE AUSTRALIAN BUSHLAND, GOANNA IS QUIRKY, UNPRETENTIOUS AND RELAXED. OUR EVER CHANGING SEASONAL MENU IS DESIGNED TO SHOWCASE THE BEST AND FRESHEST LOCALLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS Creating fresh, interesting and honest dishes in a kitchen they could call their own had long been a dream for Duncan Timmons and Tim Meikle. They met while working in London Michelin star winning restaurant La Trompette. Their shared passion for all things culinary and search for adventure bought these two to the beautiful Southwest where Scottish (Duncan) and Kiwi (Tim) and their families proudly now call home. Duncan and Tim express their passion for simple, fresh and understated food through their creative seasonal menu. They work alongside a long list of local producers and suppliers to ensure that every menu item showcases the freshest and best quality, locally sourced ingredients.
