We went here during the Easter break. The service wasn't great - we had to ask to get everything to our table including the water jugs. It could just be that they were overstaffed. The food was good. We had the steak (was over done and I didn't want it like that), prawns and pasta was really good. They do... More

We have visited this restaurant numerous times since it first opened. We always expected a fabulous seafood meal with friendly and helpful staff. This visit was the exact opposite. The waitress seemed to regard us as an annoyance because she had to stop talking to her friend. When we left - and we had issues to pass on - she... More

great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner, good menu, easy parking, and they are really good at getting the bacon crunchy, or any other way you like it

A lovely outlook of the Coffs Creek, very quiet and a relaxed atmosphere set the scene for an enjoyable breakfast destination with friends. Service was excellent and friendly, the food was very good and the cost was reasonable.

Went to Mangrove Jacks for an anniversary dinner. They ticked all the boxes. Prompt and helpful service, an amazing view and most importantly one of the best cooked steaks I have ever had in my life. My partners fish was good enough I want to go back again just to have a whole serve. Highly recommended.

Overlooking Coffs creek this is a good choice of a restaurant out of the CBD. The menu choices are varied and I couldn't decide what to order. I eventually settled on the Barra and salad, though was given the option of grilled rather than beer battered. My friend ordered the lamb korma and she really enjoyed it too. They have... More

Hired stand up paddleboards from here for around an hour. They were a lot of fun. The creek is murky so its not the nicest location but it is very calm and a great place to go stand up paddleboarding for the first time.
