Four for dinner on a hot Saturday night. Venue was fine despite the heat, and the place was generally about 3/4 full. Drinks were ordered, but took some time to arrive, and when they did waitress didn't care who ordered what, just started placing on the table. Food was ordered, and again, entrees took some time to arrive. They were... More

Dinner with my wife after a long day began with a lovely warm welcome in a relaxed atmosphere. We both had Risotto, Poseidon for the cute one and Cajun Chicken for me. Mine was OK and the seafood one was excellent. We will return as it is always good here.

On an extremely hot day it was so welcome and inviting we thoroughly enjoyed the ice cold Heineken! Followed by a delicious lunch with a nice cool breeze blowing. Staff were great and meals well cooked and nicely presented. We will go back.

A fantastic restaurant, relaxing atmosphere and delicious food. We were seated and served by the polite and attentive Andrea, who looked after us like royalty, despite a busy floor. My beef lasagna was to die for, and my friends Barramundi was superbly cooked and presented. A large range of deserts topped the meal. By far the stand out is the... More

This was the closest place to our hotel for breakfast, and near the bus stop for our trek to Lone Pine. There is a restaurant and a take out. There are outside tables. The take out area allows pets outside. Very nice personnel. We ordered the special breakfast wrap and coffee for $10. Good deal! The wrap was large with... More

The staff are so welcoming, professional and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. The food has variety and is excellent. I am sure the chef... More

We ducked into this large cafe near the Brisbane River at Hamilton for a quick lunch. It was very busy, with lots of kids (who eat free on Tuesdays. Service was pleasant. Food is Greek influenced and took 50 minutes to arrive. Grandson was not impressed by his cold pizza and the other meals were ordinary. There are better local... More

Dear Newerfarm Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about your family’s disappointing experience at the Vagelis Café. Waiting fifty minutes for meals to be served is not acceptable. The lesson for us is that when we design our staff rosters we need to ensure we have contingencies in place in the advent of team members not being... More
