We find here as it was only a few metres from our hotel, however the service and food was great and the view over the harbour was excellent.

After great ocean road, we stopped by Port Campbell to look for food, we dropped by here as this cafe has good review. We ordered the beef Wellington pie and we waited 40 minutes for the food after we remind the waitress again. The Beef Wellington pie was below average, the service was slow.

Stopped for lunch on my self-driving day tour of the GOR. Was received with a friendly greeting at the counter and placed my order. Tasty fish and chips came out fairly quickly and were straight out of the fryer (didn't say it was a health conscious lunch) :).

We started with the prawn tostadas and spicy squid, followed up with a pizza to share. All were served on boards which made for a messy table... More

We came here both nights for dinner. Good pub food with a great view. Can't get very busy but with this view it doesn't matter. Drinks were fast and meals very tasty. Catered well for coeliac too. Deserts looked great but we were always too full.

A beautiful start to the day, had the granola which was so big I couldn't finish it! It was busy, but the service was quick and the staff friendly. Thanks for a great start to our Great Ocean Road adventure!
