Early Sunday breakfast was relaxed, the staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Meals were quite large, very fresh and tasty. The only downfall was the coffee; very weak even though we requested "a strong" coffee.

My husband and I and our son visited the cafe after touring the gardens and found the atmosphere pleasant but we were very disappointed with the food. I ordered a salmon with cream cheese and capers foccacia which arrived without the cream cheese but with melted Swiss cheese on it. This clearly was not what was written on the menu... More

With a fresh and tasty range of food and drinks, this is a popular venue for couples and families. Set amid tropical trees and foliage, the atmosphere is relaxing. A big favourite on the menu is the eggs benedict with smoked salmon - delicious!

We stopped at this cafe after completing the blue arrow hiking trail. The location & the ambience of the cafe was extremely relaxing after the long hike. We tried their local ice cream and mixed fruit ice lollies and they were extremely refreshing.

I am not difficult to please but it was like the lady who served us had just been told she had been sacked. She looked fed up and it took around 20 minutes to receive the milkshake. It looked a bit odd but tried it and managed about half then gave up. My wife had something to eat I can'... More

There were a few people eating at the cafe, but no one was impressed. This is for a quick bite. I would suggest getting food from the Ozmosis cafe or bring your own and have a picnic.

We had lunch after spending a few hours wandering the gardens. Just ordered burgers and they were good. The service Was a big let down. Very slow and waitress complaining about the habits of other diners. Very very unprofessional. We were only offered a chance at one beverage, no chilled water, so decided to fill up our water bottles with... More

Shared a Stockmans platter and found that there was enough for three adults. Terrific bread and pate. Delicious food and great service on a very hot day.
