“Kangaroo for dinner?”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

This cafe sits in a delightful setting at the edge of a caravan park. Grey kangaroos laze around on the grass outside and from time to time come onto the deck.

Diners have the option of eating inside or sitting on the very large deck in the open air.

That is the good part. The food is the down side. My wife ate a meal described as HOB. it turned out to be 3 dips; hummus, onion and beetroot with pizza bread. They were terrible. There were no healthy choices so I ate a chicken schnitzel parmigiana. The chicken appeared to have been deep fried. It was liberally coated with melted cheese. The serving was generous but the taste was very bland. The accompanying chips were average.

The following morning we had coffee. This was good.

“Awesome!!!”
Reviewed 30 January 2014 via mobile

The Broken Oar came highly recommended to us by family. And we were not disappointed. On the edge of the beach-front caravan/camping park, it has a lovely atmosphere, with both indoor and out dining options. We dined outside (with kids in tow), and enjoyed the grasslands and kangaroos nearby. The meals were ample (huge kid's meals!), and we had 4 very delicious, gourmet dinner-plate-sized pizzas for $16-18 a pizza. Dessert ... The churros are hard to beat.
Staff were fantastic, and chatted pleasantly.
We will return at every opportunity.
