My husband and I ate here over the Christmas week whilst visiting for the holiday period. We had a pleasant, if not earth shattering meal with very attentive serivce from the wait staff. The prices weren't cheap, on a par with some more upmarket restaurants in the Hunter / Port Stephens area where we live however the restaurant is BYO... More

We have a holiday unit over the road from Matildas and always save our night at Matildas as our last night of our stay. Kel and the gang are great as is the food. A great way to end our stay.

Sydney prices, unfortunately food was ordinary, and 1 and half hours after arriving, we were finally served, it was not a full restaurant, so guess service was just slow.

Fine food cooked with professional pride. Good range of choices on menu. Good service. Fish dishes in particular were very good as one would expect from a coastal restaurant, and their meat dishes were also good.

I enjoyed chicken and salad and rice. Tasty and healthy, leaving me plenty of room for gf chocolate cake. Yum. Friendly staff.

This is a place where it will cost more than the pub but you get what you pay for and that is great food in a nice location and if your a desert buff you just have to try one of Sissy's home made desserts. This is a popular place for locals and visitors alike.

I have eaten here a number of times and the food was always of the highest standard. It is great that a small seaside town like Nambucca Heads has a world class place to eat.

Matilda's is a smallish restaurant with wonderful food, atmosphere and service. The fish is especially good and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Best to phone for reservation especially in holiday season.
