The best dinner we had in Strahan, really tasty delicious food, salmon, baked potatoes and vegetables and the rocket salad was the best, truly tasty. For deserts we had chocolate fudge with Panacota and ice cream, simply delicious. Good value, highly recommended.

Sorry cannot help. We were there at the beginning of the 'off season' and they were trading every day. Hope they are open for you as it is a friendly place with great food.
