Anniversary dinner

A great find in the middle of Bateman's Bay. Restaurant seems up to date with local produce, and the needs of the customer. Service was prompt and caring. The food looked appetising and well presented and tasted wonderful.

Luckily, a lot of tourists don't know about our little secret. I was a little surprised then when we went to the Little Restaurant on a Tuesday night and it was full! Little wonder. It is full because it satisfies three essential ingredients of a successful restaurant. Excellent food. Great service. Friendly atmosphere and surroundings. In Batemans Bay and surrounds,... More

Make no mistake about it, the owner and head chef cares about every detail of your dining experience and this was reflected during our recent visit. If you are looking for top quality food, this is the place to go in Batemans Bay. The menu is solid, and the specials are thoughtfully put together to provide some amazing options. The... More

We like goods food, we like good service. This is exactly what we got from our experience at this unique little restaurant. The staff are great and the chef enthusiastic and clearly passionate about delivering a great service. So pleased we sampled this little gem. Must try for any passing tourist.

Would never recommend anyone to this restaurant for their unprofessional, rude and terrible customer service.

The special of Lambs Fry and the menu Salmon were superb as usual. The new menu looked great and we have booked for post easter.... More

We had a lovely experience with the friendly staff and the amazing food. Chef Gary even made a special effort with a desert to vary it for a gluten free option and all I can say is lucky me because it was so delicious. Our main dishes of grilled swordfish and the duck risotto were totally delicious. The risotto was... More

We could not get a booking the first night in Bateman's Bay, but obtained a booking for the following night, as we had wanted to try this restaurant because of the positive reviews we read. It was worth the effort. It was one of the best meals we had had in a long time. The food was innovative, fresh and... More

Stumbled on this place, had a lovely feel slightly eclectic the food was brilliant don't believe reviews of other restaurants as I think the residents of this village only eat takeaways hence their high ratings!
