I was left in tears after a recent visit, at which I was told by the OWNER that I was unable to sit with the rest of my family, due to the fact that I had a pram. (My family had gone ahead and were already seated for a few minutes) I was later told by an employee that the... More

My partner and I decided to drop in at Poets Cafe after exploring the gorgeous town of Montville. The cafe plays beautiful French music, the food looks good and the setting is pleasant. Unfortunately, however, I ordered a small pot of tea and was given a filthy teacup! I asked for a new teacup and the second was worse than... More

Fancy French menu and attitude (dare ask for any variation to the selection)... That would be OK if the food lived up to French standards. Unfortunately these guys cash in on the constant stream of 1st timers and tourists, most of whom will never be back. Truck stop style breakfast boasting 'smoked baked beans' conjuring thoughts of something home made... More

Beautiful place great atmosphere, did forgot my glass of wine brought out 2 extra rounds of beers for the table before I had to ask where it was. Blonde waitress was lovely and got it straight away. Food was OK nothing special. Heaps of miggies around not that that was any fault to the restaurant.

A beautiful spot for a restaurant! The food is very nicely presented, the only unfortunate thing is the tinned tuna in the salads- fresh one would be nicer. An absolute must-have is therefor the Jamaican Ginger Beer!!!

It was great to see the changes at Poets Cafe! I am a local and always found the food there pretty ordinary. But now it is delightfully French! Loved the Duck Liver Pate! So smooth and creamy. And then the brains - the best I've ever eaten! Will be back for sure!

It some years since we have been to Poets Cafe; was not always happy with it. However, passing by on a weekday thought it would be good to drop in for lunch as the whole place has changed and obviously new Management and staff: very much a French cafe now. It was delightful - friendly welcome, great service and food.... More

The owner was utterly rude when we went for a family visit with a pram. We were told that we could not take the pram into the restaurant even though it was empty. Whilst the view is fantastic the stress off being told you were not welcome in the cafe is not worth it.

This place was awesome - the food came out in great time, was perfect and all the staff were friendly - Ali, Holly and Amy (Charlize Theron). Deserts were simply delicious and the Afogato topped things off. And an amazing view! Ziggy
