My partner had the special of the day, crumbed flake and it was fabulous. I had the beef nachos which were pretty ordinary. not enough topping and cheese and very limited flavour and beef.

Wanted a special night out with my wife. Selected the Star. Beautiful dining room. Ordered Caesar salad with King prawns & a 400g rump steak. Both meals were perfect, my wife loved her salad and I loved the steak. We topped it of with mini pavlovas with berries and coffee. All in all AWESOME.

Have been a few times however the service and quality of good this time was well below par. Appreciate being busy period but to wait 1 hour for your kids meals and have another 30 minute wait for your meals to come out either cold, undercooked and have no apologies or service is very poor. Last time we will visit... More

Arrived late into Port Fairy and went to nearest pub. Great meal and service was excellent. Roast of the day was generous and the pasta from the special board very tasty.

Bought the parma and it was massive!!!!! We were given a complementary drink when we presented our "Central Motel" key ring! Staff were pleasant. You certainly get bang for your buck when you have dinner here!
