I'm not sure what happened here, I had heard a radio story about this restaurant and got all excited when I knew we'd be in the area - I even booked months in advance thinking I'd have to fight for a table. It was a very disappointing experience sadly. The staff were just too in our face, sort of desperate... More

This was our first visit. We had hoped it might have been almost as good as the predecessor "No.2 Oak Street" but it was well behind that multi award winning restaurant. I'll keep this review short because I understand that the restaurant has been sold and will close for 6 to 8 weeks before re-opening under new management sometime in... More

Iam sorry to say but me and some work colleges had dined on new years and i wish we had gone elsewhere. We felt that they were just trying to rush us course straight after course served quickly. Maybe the staff wanted to go home early I am not too sure but this is not what a dining experience is... More

Dined her with my hubby a few months ago and i must say this place has gone down hill very quickly. The duck was dry ,overcooked , tasteless and the porkbelly was very tough and the fat was not cooked properly. Do yourself a favor and go to the many other restaurants in the area unfortunately me and my partner... More

A few months ago and you are reviewing now? Some comments to the staff on the night would have caused immediate correction to your situation. Sorry you didn't have a great meal as almost all other reviewers on this platform have had. More

Went with my husband for a degustation dinner on NYE 2016. We were greeted by Cassandra who was most accommodating and friendly. There were oysters as part of the menu, which none of us like, but we got the most delicious little tarts instead. Each dish was delicious with the lamb being extremely tender and flavoursome. The service was impeccable,... More

The menu was a set 5 course meal due to it being New Year's Eve. We arrived at 7 and by 7:50 we had been served 4 courses, I had to ask them not to bring out dessert for at least 30 minutes. The food was tasty and presented beautifully. The staff were a little too attentive and we felt... More

This really is a Bellingen institution and rightly so. Although the present owner told us he had sold, so hopefully the new owners do its reputation proud. We had the scallops as an entree and they were perfectly cooked and great flavours. Lamb and beef dishes for mains, both cooked perfectly and the flavour balance in each dish was spot... More
