The staff made special arrangements for us to have a private outdoor table to have our little dog with us, as we were travelling through with him. The bread, entrees, mains and dessert we had were all exceptional. Very pleased we found it! Thank you, would definitely recommend.

We have been coming to the south coast for years and tried lots of restaurants, always wondered what this was like. Finally went there on Sunday night (they were open for dinner due to school holidays). Great building with a nice ambience. The food was excellent we all enjoyed our meals. The entrees were just right and the selection of... More

My partner and I recently had dinner here. Entrees were outstanding (prawn saganaki and soft shell crab). Mains were disappointing. My partners steak was underdone, we sent it back and then severely overdone (we just wanted medium rare). My duck confit was quiet dry. We had such high expecatations as the location and entrees were beautiful. Would try again as... More

We stumbled across the Butterfactory Restaurant and we were so pleased we did! A family party of seven people were not disappointed with the delicious offerings of food and wine. The staff were friendly and helpful - and the spacious layout of the room gave us plenty of space to chat and enjoy a wonderful evening.

Loved the historical feel of the building. The menu was extensive enough that suited most palates. Loved my seafood plate and dessert plate. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

The old butter factory building is large and spacious providing a relaxed dining setting. I was so pleased with the meal portions and variety for my pescatarian partner. The food was delicious and worth driving 15 mins from Nowra. In fact we liked the restaurant so much we will take a weekend break and dine here again soon.

This place is actually top quality: from starters to mains, the menu was put together thoughtfully and the food was well prepared. My wife and daughter enjoyed the prawn risotto, I had the lamb (which was very good although a little smoky). For starters, we really enjoyed the zucchini with humus, but the salad was also good. Nice atmosphere, high... More

Another great night at the butter factory, Brittany and the team were great, food was delicious, the only complaint would be not picking, with the Christmas menu you received a glass of bubble, was lovely, but for non drinkers and drivers a soft drink would have been a great thought, the panna cotta was delicious but compared to the other...
