“Great service, great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We had our all day breakfast at 1:30 pm and they were very generous servings and cooked perfectly! The eggs were delicious and the bacon was awesome - just loved it all.
However, the Barilla Bay oysters (natural) we had as an entree were nice but a bit on the small side and at $17.00 a half dozen... well, I doubt that was value for money. Nonetheless, the aforementioned all day breakfast more than made up for the oysters. Overall experience was great - highly recommended.
Special mention to Michele who served us very well and also Ken the chef for such a lovely breakkie!

“Great spot for a meal in Richmond”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We had visited this spot a while ago when we were last in Tassie, so made a point of stopping in for breakfast and coffee. Huge meal that was very yummy - great coffee; we ended up having a second cup!

“Seafood Platter was great in a wonderful setting”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

What a pleasant surprise! We had a seafood platter for 2 and wasn't confronted with all the usual shellfish that leaves you in a huge mess of broken shells and little meat. This was clean and enjoyable eating with gorgeous garden surrounds. The coffee wasn't bad either.

“Lovely food and great gardens”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Enjoyed a delicious lunch of salmon with pesto on a bed of rocket and spinach. Tasty and even better with great local wines. Given the name, it wasn't quite what I was expecting, but a pleasant lunch just the same.

“Poor quality service for a tourist town”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 via mobile

Came here on a Sunday arvo as it had been highly recommended by some friends. Group of 13, with about 9 wanting breakfast/ lunch, place was kind off busy but no where near full. Asked if we could move a table so we could all sit together, was told in a fairly poor tone that they don't do this as the umbrella spikes can't move. Since only one table had an umbrella, was this an issue? Told they could seat us inside, but only a table of 10 and the other three would have to sit outside, away from the rest of us. We were then told that if we wanted to have breakfast, we couldn't as they couldn't cook 10 breakfasts, but would be able to do 10 lunches and that big tables are too difficult.

Agreed not to have breakfast (as obviously cooking eggs for 10 is far too difficult) and had a mixture of the light meals. Most of these were over promised and under delivered. The stuffed mushrooms consisted of 4 very small and sorry looking cup mushrooms with (a jar) pesto and a bit of salad. The turkish bread was 6 small bits of bread with tiny amounts of oil, balsamic and pesto with enough butter to do a whole loaf. The potato Wedges were about the only saving grace.

Everything seemed too difficult, from a request to bring a coffee with the meal, to setting the table. I used the toilets and on the way out heard the older waitress complaining about how inconvienient we were. When our meals turned up the waitress dropped my plate from about 2 inches off the table in front of me and turned and walked off with no apology.

This town aims at the tourist dollar and overpriced rubbish food and poor service from rude staff will not pass muster with the sector of the market this place appears to be aiming for.

Will NEVER come back and will not recommend!
