“Best cafe in Eden!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

Such a pleasure to eat at this little cafe situated at the wharf in Eden. Although it doesn't look out over the wharf the food is something that should not be missed! Food is locally sourced and home made. Staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Open for breakfast and lunch there are a wide range of choices to suit anyone's taste, I can't go past the vegetarian lasagne! Always my choice of place to eat in Eden when I visit family!

“Best fish and Chips I've tasted in Australia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Really yummy food at reasonable prices, the best part is the fish and chips. Mussels were very juicy and not overcooked like some places. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely eat there again.

“Tiny portions, large prices!! ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for a late lunch after reading a recommendation in the lonely planet that this was one of the best places to eat fish and Chips in Eden!! Genuinely disappointed though the good taste, the child sized portions did not reflect the price of the dishes. $22.50 for fish and chips and salad. My husband felt aggrieved and right from the start kindly requested more chips as we were all still hungry! The chef declined telling us this was the set size and that he'd never had an complaints before! Clearly a lye after reading some of the reviews! Once receiving the bill for four adults and each of us feeling cheated at the meal portion. we asked to pay the value of what we thought the meal was worth (the bill was $87 we offered $70- which we thought was fair being that we hadn't had drinks either). The owner didn't want to budge on this negotiation which we surprised about as they were aware of our disappointment from the start. We didn't want to spoil our day and make a scene but I did day I would write my experiences on trip advisor. Unfortunately with this restaurant the 'customer is not always right' and in this instance you don't get what you pay for. We live in Melbourne and know the price and value of a decent fish and chip. So fellow customers: if your starving- try next door!!

“You have to pay extra for tartare sauce! Gimme a break!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

Three of us had a late lunch here after a day of sightseeing in the area.
One of our party ordered the $10 fish and chips. When her meal arrived she very politely asked for some tartare sauce. She was very curtly told by the waitress that she would have to pay extra for tartare sauce as that was not included in the $10 fish and chips meal.
My friend said that she would pay the extra if that was the case. A very small tub of tartare sauce was then brought to the table.
The meal itself was quite nice but that attitude alone would ensure that we would never return.
We had paid for the meal when ordering so my friend went to the counter to pay for the tartare sauce when we were leaving. I had thought common sense may have prevailed by then and any charge would have been waived with a smile and apology.
She was charged 40 cents for the tartare sauce.
This is so petty that it defies belief!
We are not locals so are never likely to eat here again but that experience was a great way to guarantee it.
