We went to the LightHouse restaurant the other day and were completely disappointed .
The service was very slow and not very friendly. I ordered a quiche and salad and the quiche was so dry I could hardly cut into it. The pastry was so hard and dry, it tasted like it had been reheated for the last three days. The salad was average and the prices were reasonable but I would not recommend it to anyone.

We read all the great reviews and walked up and down the street trying to find it. The address on TripAdvisor was wrong (its opposite the deli) so I've sent thru updates to TripAdvisor.

Unfortunately for us it was a disaster. We ordered the raisin toast which we got with small packets of butter which had turned to oil because they had been placed on top of the toast. They were the old style small thin slices of toast rather than the newer thicker more delicious "cafe" style, so it was like eating cardboard.

My partner ordered a flat white coffee. It came very watery, with very little coffee flavour and no froth on top. Obviously made by someone who had never been trained to use a coffee machine. Staff need to be trained as baristas if they are expected to make coffee correctly. We got charged $4.50 for a cup of coffee which could not be drunk.

On the bright side, the vanilla milkshake was one of the best I have had in years! Icy cold and with lots of ice-cream and flavouring.

However, the staff member who rang up the order on the till got it all wrong and overcharged us quite a bit. We only got our money back when we asked why we had been charged so much.

It was an unfortunate choice of cafe for us. It's really a quick Aussie take away shop rather than a proper cafe doing high quality food and drinks.

We won't be back.
