Might be alright for brunch but not for dinner. Very disappointing meal. Good location right in the middle of the village.

For more than 20 years I've been a regular diner and supporter of this restaurant, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with family and friends, through three sets of lovely owners. Sadly the latest one is both rude, unpleasant and arrogant, concerned more about promoting his...status as owner rather than a customer's comfort. We are lucky to have many good local restaurants in Devonport, so I encourage you to go elsewhere and support those who actually deserve your support.More

Salmon risotto and seared tuna with asparagus and artichoke were our selections. Delivered promptly and both met expectations. Coupled with Lake Hayes Pinot’s, Gris for her and Noir for him. Dessert of crème brûlée (nice flavour) with vanilla ice cream on rhubarb compote finished meal...off nicely.More

We came later in the afternoon and had the salmon and cream cheese bagel, carrot cake and coffee. Everything was very tasty. Liked being able to sit outside by footpath. Friendly staff.

Unfortunately sometimes visiting due to good ratings is not worth the trip. We had calamari and I had a seafood chowder that was very watery and not very tasty. When asked how the meal was and hubby commented it was quite watery the reply was...“well that’s how we make it”. Needless to say this is not the customer experience I desire. The coffee was nice thoughMore

I ordered the pepperoni for 25 $. Absolutely worst pizza I have ever had. I've been a chef for 25 years and would only very rarely complain but when a combination of several bad choices on the ingredients and poor execution of the cooking combined...with an rude response from the wait staff when responding to her question if everything was good I can't help myself. Horrible cheap pre grated mozzarella- and way too much of it smothered on the top of all the other ingredients...along them the sausage supposed to be pepperoni...3-4mm thick slices of a Strange chewy over cured salami...a thin and bland tomato sauce... We have been here several times...but never again...More
