“First class food and a friendly atmosphere in a beautiful natural setting”
Reviewed 19 July 2011

We loved our lunch at Goanna Cafe. It is a unique and relaxing experience, and is nestled in beautiful natural bush and wildflowers; the day we were there the sun filtered down through the eucalypts and the tall grass trees.

Service was very friendly, and after ordering we wandered round the pretty galleryand browsed the goodies, all of which were very reasonably priced.

Lunch arrived all too soon, and we were impressed at the presentation and quality of the food, which was restaurant standard in a relaxed cafe setting. Duncan's passion and attention to detail were in evidence at very reasonable prices - I chose the delicious tasting plate, while my wife had the special, which was a splendid slow cooked lamb shank with garlic mash and fresh perfectly cooked vegetables. Our byo wine was opened and glasses supplied at no charge, which is very unusual these days, having been purchased from a nearby vineyard.

For afters we tried the mouthwatering home bakes and tarts served with first class coffee.

All in all a delightful experience which we can't recommend highly enough.
