Best to stick with the Cafe. Restaurant is overpriced and dull. Did see a whale, though. Next time I will bring a picnic.

Excellent food. Service was a little slow as only 1 person serving tables and that person did an excellent job given the circumstances. Food was brilliant. View was marvellous. All in all a pretty good experience.

This is actually two different establishments. One is an intimate restaurant that is very well presented. It is well suited to couples or small groups. The other is a very well managed cafe/kiosk which is a must for families when visiting Port Elliott

Stopped here for lunch with friends. The place was clean, the atmosphere great, the staff friendly and the food fantastic! We had seafood platters which were well cooked, and abundant. The tables overlook an amazing view and you can choose to eat inside or out.
