Visited Gus's with my son and friends for a meal. Even though there were other children eating there on the patio, we were refused entry by the management. I have no idea why. We went to the Sportman's next door, and were treated great. I have no explanation for you sorry!

Excellent dinners. Make a reservation to get a table with a view. Take a photo of the "specials" board on your way in; those options never disappoint. Highly recommend the Mixed Grill and the Gluten-free Chocolate Cake. Hostess is exceptional- wait staff is young but eager to please!

Cannot believe that nearly every restaurant in Port McNeil is closed on a Sunday evening in summer high season! Hole they do not complain when they go broke! Anyway Gus' (same owner) did not hit the mark previously and we were a bit reluctant to go to Sportman's which was the only other place open on a Sunday. It was a good surprise. The interior decorations were most welcoming. Fresh and clean decor. The menu has a Mediterranean slant as well as pizzas. I ordered lamb chops which were a bit too well done and not as per my order but very tasty nevertheless. I would have returned them but the chef must have had all hands on deck as this little restaurant was packed to capacity. Under the circumstances the pizzas and chops orders were good and I would return to this restaurant.

We'd hoped to grab breakfast at Tia's before beginning our journey home. The restaurant is clean and our server was great--very friendly and accommodating. We were really surprised by the cost of the breakfast selections, however, and opted out of eating anything more than a muffin with our coffee.

The food we ordered wasn't very fresh. It seems like it has been sitting there for a long time.
They serve ice cream .. but maybe get it in the cup as the cone is a bit soggy.
They have great selection for espresso and non-espresso drink; they even have bubble tea but they are all made with powered, not fresh fruit so I would not recommend it.
Overall, if you are looking for a place to kill time while waiting for the ferry it is a good option.

We were a group 18 who stayed at the Cluxewe Resort for 3 nights, so of course we wanted to try this restaurant. The food was locally-sourced, fresh, innovative, and very tasty. It's a small restaurant, and even though we made Reservations, they were only able to accommodate our group in 3 different parties at different times. We were fine with that and understood that it would provide better service in that arrangement. We were able to sample each other's food and I can state, it was all delicious and well-prepared. They offer excellent appetizers, entrees, and delicious desserts. Be aware, however, that even during peak season, they close Mondays and Tuesdays. If you aren't staying at the resort, but are within a few miles of this restaurant, it is well-worth making the trip to try it out. Good food with a beautiful view makes for a lovely dining experience.
