Had the hot rock "experience". This involves a big hunk of beef or lamb served on a lump of red hot lava rock. However, they only provided knives suitable for spreading butter (I guess these have been used so many times on the rocks that they no longer have any edges). Had to witness my family sawing like lunatics before... More

My friend and I stayed a week in Airlie and I don't think there was a day we didn't go to this lovely cafe-come-restaurant. The highlight was definitely the service, everyone was so lovely and couldn't do enough for you, little touches like remembering your name and that you like a jug of water with the meal makes a difference....

Having enjoyed a hot rock experience in the UK we thought we would try it out here. Our starters were lovely but the steak for the hot rock was very big and tough so disappointed but still enjoyed the experience

The food is amazing highly recommend this going here. well priced compared to the food. The best part i think is that it cooks while you are eating so it doesn't go cold and you can cook it to your liking.

The coffee here is great and I would often pop in on my way to work to pick up a cappuccino. The owner is lovely and always has a smile when she speaks to you. The food is delicious and this is a hidden gem tucked away off the main strip.
