Basic fish and chips at very high price. Chicken in spicy cream sauce was just a basic chicken curry at a very high price. Disappointing evening meal out.

Charming place. We were there mid morning for coffee and a snack, and we loved the setting on dutch lake. There are turtles In the water along the bank. Absolutely worth a little detour.

Drinks menu was sold out (our choice of wine, beer and pineapple juice were out of stock), but the food was delicious. Nice scenery as you can sit on the porch overlooking the lake and the mountains. Staff was friendly. Schrimps for starters were lovely,...More
