We should have walked away when we could smell the oil the chips were cooked in outside the door, but we wanted a break and had found a park outside. It was later on Easter Monday so the choices were no longer available, but what was there was poorly presented, didn't appear fresh and tasted terrible. No reason for this... More

As they seem to be unsure of the name they want to call this place look up The olive grove. That's what it's called in their receipts. I understand, this place is on a tourist highway, but that does not excuse the painfully expensive prices. $4.50 for a 600ml coke! 17$ for a steak sandwich which is more like steak... More

I paid $6.50 for a cheese and ham toasted sandwich. It hardly had any cheese in it, wasn't cit in half and the bread tasted stale like it had been in the freezer too long. While I was waiting I went to the the ladies toilet, which was dirty looking everywhere and the toilet roll was on the floor because... More

Although the location is nice and the trees outside provide great shade and a nice place to sit, the coffee was not the best and the facility was not cleaned the best.

For the life of me I cannot think of a reason why anyone would go here, they are an absolute ripoff, paid nearly $7 for a plain sandwich, are you kidding? I don't mind paying top dollar for top quality food but you won't get that here. Absolute shocker avoid at all costs(pun intended)

These people shame the town, not only are they randomly way-overpriced, but the worst thing of all was the horrible staff. Have to say one young girl looked positively embarrased to work on the counter. Other staff were actively ignoring people and seemed to have no idea that customers were watching their behaviour. If there was a manager around it... More

been here twice for i was travelling often to queenstown but same old horrible staff service. very rude and not paying attention when you are ordering, and they will get annoyed with their impolite voice because you keep on repeating it. management needs to do something about their staff customer services cos it seem they dont know what it means....

Large selection of bland over priced food. Staff that are rude and would rather talk to there work mates then listen to your order to get it correct. Have been a few times now and will not be back

The service was friendly and fairly quick. The food was okay priced however I found mine a little bland. The kids like their food. It was in a convenient location from the park we stayed at.
