We often travel to Batemans Bay on the South Coast of NSW and have been several times to the Little Restaurant in the main street in town. The food is always fabulous - any course - entree, mains or desert. Beautiful taste, preparation, presentation, everything! The staff are always courteous and the owner/chef, Gary, is always on hand to advise... More

LRB is were locals choose to eat. Gary is a gem, food exceptional, staff are always lovely. I honestly can not imagine a single staff member that would be rude! Two negative reviews won't affect LRB.

Had seen 2 off putting reviews but decided to try it anyway. The food was excellent, beautifully presented. Staff were friendly and nice and on the ball. We shared 2 entrees - the oysters, and the prawn with haloumi - both very tasty. I had the lamb for main and it was cooked perfectly - pink and tender, my partner... More

I certainly did not experience poor service or rudeness as mentioned in the two previous reviews. From the time I called into the restaurant earlier in the day to make a reservation to paying the bill and leaving after our meal I found everyone to be friendly and pleasant and the service was faultless. Had a very nice meal and... More

Two out of the three wait stuff were nothing short of rude. Poor service. The main I received was less then half the size of a normal entree meal ! 4 sea scallops with nothing but a few tiny peices of sausage is not acceptable for 30 dollars , I left hungry and upset about the service , what was...

Waiters were rude, pushy and judging on orders. The food was average but expensive as the mains serving size was the size of an entrée. Wont be going back.

Wonderful service and great good from a creative, simulating menu. Stand outs were the fresh oysters and a starter of spiced prawns and haloumi on a bed if red quinoa and cranberries :) also, the zen cocktail with green tea and mint flavours was lovely!

we have eaten in many Batemans Bay Restaurants, this little gem has to be the best. The staff are attentive (unlike some other waterfront restaurant), Hat's off to Garry and his chefs the food is divine, the wine selection is superb, and dessert.... well 'heaven'. If you haven't tried it, do yourself a favour, you will not be disappointed. well... More

Amazing food, is very fresh and tasty. Five stars. Great wine selection with five dollar drinks until six o'clock at night, is a good way to get folk inside for drinks and, after viewing the amazing menu, dinner.

While on holidays it was great to be able to go out for a lovely sit down meal that met major city standards. The staff were quite attentive and friendly. There was much variety in drinks. Food was tasty and the was some yummy sounding desserts, however by dessert I was overly full. We also appreciated that once the bill... More
