Large variety and self serve at the table laden with starters, salads, veg dishes and various meats then to top it off desserts to drool over from traditional to decadent.

Lovely hearty breakfast, good service and great company. We were on a motorcycle ride with others and although we were a large crowd, everyone was fed on time and the food was served hot and tasy.

We sat outside on the couches which was a lovely surprise. It's not often that you find couches at a restaurant so we settled in for a while! What a comfortable way to dine. My husband had pizza and I had the buffet curry. It was good. The staff are friendly and very attentive. Would go again!

After a hectic day of driving and shopping it was so good to return to our base camp in Greyton and relax at Searles for drinks and food that was delivered on time, with a smile and tasted great. A definite return visit on the cards.

Food was good, not great. Service was average at best. Really nice place. If the service was better and the food up to scratch, it would be amazing.

A lovely restaurant with bar and a relaxing cool lounge for those warm summer days. Food excellent, atmosphere nice and relaxed and the service is the best by the most friendly staff in Greyton. Only downside...owner can maybe use a bit of discretion when addressing her staff in the presence of customers around. Otherwise a lovely place!

We walked pass the entrance, through the restaurant and then went to sit outside. There was no one to greet or to seat. We waited for about 20 minutes before a waiter attended to us. After that we had to walk in everytime to order. For 90 minutes we did not have one waiter. Tables outside was not even cleared... More

Dear Hippo Traveller thank you very much for your review. I am sorry you did not bring this to Management's attention as we always strive for excellent service. If I have a bad attitude waitress I would like to sort it out as we do not accept that. Do you perhaps know which day and I will check the waiter.... More
