Always a pleasure, great service and coffee and bikkies our team love it for an informal catch up. The menu is varied but would benefit from a change up every now and then.

We discovered this great eating spot on a beautiful Sunday morning and decided to sit outside under an umbrella, where we were sheltered from the breeze. My wife had the French toast, which was light and tasty, with good bacon to balance the sweetness. My choice included a crunchy rösti, with plenty of bacon and free range scrambled egg, which...

Excellent friendly service and good food. We visited on a grey night, but still a lovely setting. We even managed to order a fabulous affogato which wasn't on the menu

We were so glad we drove down to Blackmans Bay to have dinner at this restaurant. Great location and views. The food was amazing! And every plate that went past me looked delicious. The staff were lovely. And was a cosy great place to enjoy a meal. Would highly recommend.

Good food, prices are OK and the views are magnificent, some wave would have topped it off but it is in a sheltered bay so that would be asking too much! Love the food nice variety and well cooked, I especially liked the slow cooked beef. Try the white rabbit beer on tap its well worthwhile.

Almost sitting on Blackmans Bay Beach, with magnificent views over the bay, this resturant serves great meals at reasonable prices. A very clean resturant with excellent service. Would recommend to all for dining.

We had a Sunday lunch here and enjoyed the food quality and quantity. I had a large and tasty lamb shank and my wife had very fresh seafood (trevalla, scallops, calamari, prawns, mussels, capers, spanish onion and tomato). One guest had fish and chips (freshly crumbed, by request that was readily agreed to) and another had a the signature dish... More

We chose a window seat directly opposite the beach. There are also spacious settings outside, even closer to the water. Location tick. We received a warm greeting and professional service - tick. The ambience and setting very appealing - tables maybe slightly close to each other, but otherwise - tick for setting, style and atmosphere. We only had coffee and... More

I love the beach restaurant, great sunny spot on the waterfront, generous servings and the best hollandaise sauce around. Have been there for a wedding upstairs too, and the food was great. Have been here numerous times
