We stopped here after visiting the 12 Apostles. Staff were very friendly and happy to engage in conversation. We ordered flat whites and berry cheese cake. Coffee was made perfectly and was creamy and flavoursome. Cheese cake........so nice that I wasn't going to share it with my lovely wife . She won though and I had to end up sharing!... More

12 Rocks has nice cozy ambience, good collection of deserts, loved the Lemon Meringue Pie, must have. Portions were huge, mini-cheese burger that my daughter ordered, was bigger than most burgers in Singapore:) Definitely recommend.

We stopped by because we saw that the restaurant had a beautiful view and also we needed to have our lunch. Serving was kind of slow, we saw people who came later, had their orders served first.

Good plain pub food with a view of the beach and surf. We had coffee, but drinks were available. Food had good flavour and reasonably priced, served quickly, hot. Good place to stop. Seems to have a fly problem though! Put on some repellent if you want to eat on the deck.

We has dinner and drinks there. A good selection of foods (many GF). The service was efficient and friendly. Even though this was not a peak season visit, the dining area was reasonably full, but certainly not over crowded. The meals we had were very good.

We felt a little short of choice for dinner options in Peterborough so we ventured to Port Campbell and we weren't disappointed. Definitely tourist prices but quality food. Only complaint is they brought out one of the meals much later than the others. Not a bad choice if you're in the area.

The place was fairly busy. Ordering was typical. Food was good. Ate outside because inside was too noisy. A little chilly in the late afternoon on that December day but was better after we got a seat in the sun.

The Beaf and Reef was really good, with Scallop, Mussels and a day fish. This location is more a cafe as restaurant. No reservation possible. The only point (not in our visit) some time. they take order only until 8pm.

Thank Jacques H
