We enjoyed a lovely dinner here. The food was excellent and very good value. Service was good and we had a great view of the sunset. What more could you want!

This café was perfect for us for a pleasant lunch. The café sits opposite the water so we enjoyed the views, the food was of good quality and the staff were very friendly.

What happened ? The fish and chips used to be so good and plentiful now you get less fish and it's not even good anymore. I don't understand why restaurants do this . When the tourists leave they might figure this out . Oh well it's not like I need to go back anyways

We had an evening meal here last month and the foods and service were great. No complaints from us. If you expect 'silver service' and 'upmarket' venue don't expect it here, BUT for value, service and ambiance this place is good.

Just returned from this disappointing meal. I ordered mussels in garlic sauce and grilled fish. The mussels were so over cooked I couldn't eat them, the waitress then informed me they were frozen sent over from NZ. The fish was probably the worst 'grilled' supermarket fish I have ever eaten.

This is the best place in Carnarvon for a big breakfast. It is always cooked perfectly and sometimes you can wait a little longer - BUT - it is worth the wait! Always friendly and polite. Smoothies are also lovely. The place could do with some renovations and brightening up but the food is what its about and it is... More

The food here was predictable but it was well presented and well cooked. This is a comfortable place where locals eat. It is not fine dining but you won't go home hungry either.

Dined here with a group of friends. Ordered a variety of seafood and curry dishes. All enjoyed the food immensely and would highly recommend. Good portion sizes and not overly priced. Service a bit slow though.
