After visiting the Falls this is a natural to visit for another perspective of the gorge. The view is fantastic, the service cheerful and helpful, the food first class. If you have the time it is worth visiting again and again.

The standard of food and service is extremely good. It is a 5 minute dusty walk from the Falls car park, but well worth it. The views from the restaurant are outstanding.
