I have eaten here a number of times and always enjoyed the food. If you don't have time to eat in, the takeaway pizza is great as well. I have always found the staff very friendly, efficient and genuinely interested in whether I have enjoyed the food. Would definitely reccomend!

Good staff who are friendly and love to make up cocktails for you. The view on a sunny afternoon looking over Western Port is just amazing.

We and friends dined in the Penguin Parade Visitor Centre Cafe before entering the renowned Penguin Parade in Phillip Island. Because of time reasons, we all ordered the fried chicken with french fries. The chicken was a little too dry and the french fries were a little too monotonously to be eaten, lacking self-creativity and healthiness as the veggies on... More

We had pizza, red wine and beer! The pizza was piled with topping, crunchy base and hot... the beer was cold and the wine smooth! A very nice meal at a reasonable price!

We ate here before penguin parade. Took too long for waiter to come & take the order. And, longer, almost 30 mins, for food to b served. Burnt, tasteless and over price. Coleslaw was old. Not fresh. Avoid this place and go to some local fish n chip

Came here with a group of 6, the wait staff are very rude with a "can't be bothered" attitude. Food was cold after waiting 45 minutes for our meals and not very nice at all. Told the waiter we were having dessert but first going to freshen up, during that time they cleared our table, took our drinks and gave... More
