Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nice meal and good service and relaxed atmosphere. Prices were a bit higher than they should have been for what it was. especially the drinks which were small but expensive

Had the lasagna for dinner. It was hot and steaming when it arrived at my table. Very cheesy and nice with the rocket on top. Had the French Profilteroles for desert and they were amazing! A little stale but the ice cream and chocolate sauce made up for it. Would eat here again.

The breakfast was so disappointingly unsatisfying and small for the price. The 4 star rating on trip advisor is inaccurate.

So went here with my sister who is a local to try it out. It is terrible. We needed breakfast, it cost a fortune and it was awful quality.

If you're after variety, this may be the place for you. Located just off the main strip, almost behind Macca's. Food isn't of the greatest quality BUT, I'm a girl from Melb with crazy expectations. Order, 2 big breakfasts (bacon, eggs, 4 piece of toast, sausage, beans) 1 Smashed Avo (simple), Omelette & French-toast and coffees! Coffees are $4.80 each.... More

An absolute must in Airlie with fantastic food - tasty hot rock chicken. If you've never done hot rock, this is the place! A few Arancini balls also should not go amiss! Laurence is the ideal host and does not hesitate to attend to every need.
