“Lovely dinner”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

We were here over the Easter period and had kangaroo steak which was nicely done, but accompanied by a large, oily potato fritter house, we also had the shrimp and crocodile steak which was done really well, if on the small side, with preserved veg that wasn't too exciting, and for starters dukka and damper.
No room for dessert unfortunately, would have liked to try the "chocolate s lut"! Overall a good meal, and good service. The coffee is also quite good. Only thing is that when sitting outside, you're right beside a busy road so there's not much of a view.

“Great value for native tastes at lunch”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

Come for the lunch special. For $27.50 you choose 3 dishes from their lunch menu, as well as getting a glass of wine/ beer/juice/soda and a bowl of fries. We had the Tempura bay bug, Barramundi spring rolls, and Croc burger. We also got the damper, oil, and dukka for $6. All delicious, prompt service, house wine (cab sav) was reasonable. We thought it was excellent value for lunch.

“A must”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Really enjoyed this restaurant.We arrived about 8pm without a booking but they staff managed to fit us in after a few minutes. It got off to a rocky start with our mains arriving before our drinks but the manager didn't charge us for them as she wanted us to know that,it wasn't to standard. When the cocktails did arrive they couldn't be faulted and were worth the wait.The mains were perfect and portion size was just right.I would recommend Ochre to anyone looking for a good quality meal,but to book ahead to avoid disappointment .
