On a recent holiday we went for breakfast to this wonderful little restaurant.

The food nothing short of delicious, the staff were attentive and warm and the atmosphere was great on a cold winters morning. The coffee was also another highlight!!

I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Great service, perfect ambience, delicious food! Perfect for our 'double date' night. Good sized meals- value for money.

We went there today for a lunch. The staff were nothing short of offensive, even when we asked for a simple thing. Food was far below Leura's average and coffee we left after a few sips. Toilets needed a serious clean and restaurant was not even half full. A good sign not to go when the other surrounding restaurants were well attended. There were quite a few of us, all elderly, all of us were quite surprised such a restaurant could survive with such competition. We come to Leura twice a month at least six to sixteen of us. We won't be returning to this one.

We are sorry you had a bad experience, but we are not sure that you came to us? We had an extremely busy day and our toilets are regularly cleaned through out the day, (although it is hard to always be on top of this at all times). I spoke to my manager who is unaware of any problems during the day and she is very keen to speak to you in person to discuss any problem you may have had. Our staff take their job very seriously and as you can see from nearly all our reviews we excel at service. Please do not hesitate to call us 0247841159. It is fine if you want to write a very negative review about us but we would appreciate it if you could talk to us directly about any problems so we can try to fix it and keep a happy customer. We welcome feed back

Evening dinner for two. Courteous, friendly service. The menu has Tapas; Feasts (Seafood, Meat, Vege, Combined) comprising variants from the tapas list, and there is also a main course menu of Mod Oz style meals. We chose the Meat Feast. ($56.00 for two). Consisted of kebabs, meatballs, kangaroo skewers, potatoes bravos, salad, dips (several), and bread. A large portion. The kangaroo was well cooked, but almost at room temp when it arrived. The potatoes were a little undercooked. That aside the overall meal was most enjoyable.The wine list is very short, prices are reasonable. We brought a bottle and were told BYO is available Wednesday and Thursday nights. seems strange, but fortunately we were there on Wednesday. No room for dessert.

We had two excellent dishes -- chermoula crusted salmon and seafood linguine. The seasonings were complex and not overdone. The generous portion of salmon was perfectly cooked. Dessert, a chocolate mousse, was light. We'd certainly go back.
