I was meeting some relatives here for a meal on a Thursday night. My husband and I walked in and had a drink at the bar while waiting for our dining companions. The waitress was pleasant and efficient and the host joined us for a chat while we waited. I was surprised to find that there were no other diners... More

The restaurant itself was a little outdated but the food was fantastic! The restaurant is very clean and tidy, there is great attention paid to the fine detail of how each table is set. Wait staff were exceptional and the food was simple but cooked to perfection. I recommend the pumpkin soup and the salmon as a main.

Although the decor is dated, it certainly makes up for it with food and service. We holiday here quite often and have tried almost everywhere. The menu is great, the food even better. The service is superb! No other restaurant here comes close . The lobster and calamari is FRESH. So many other restaurants claim theirs is fresh , but... More

Once again we celebrated the new year at Blackies. We have been here a few times and always enjoy the menu, the service and the high standard of meals served up on each occasion is always of a high standard. The display of fireworks in Forster with a front row seat is the ideal way to bring in the new... More

Had dinner here for my anniversary with my partner. The place is really quiet and peaceful for those who like intimate conversation where it's not to loud of an atmosphere. Quite surprised with the food being really fresh and delicious. Would recommend those who would want a little fancy dinner within the area.

We always feel welcome the minute we walk in the door here, it never changes. A great restaurant with a great menu and excellent service. Blackie's pride themselves by always using fresh Australian produce, not imported, and the relults are impressive and show in every meal they serve. Thouroughly enjoyed our meal and already looking forward to returning.

We have been going to Blackies for quite some time now and have never been disappointed . They always have the freshest fish and the best steaks in a town short of good restaurants . Micheal and Carol are also the perfect Hosts .

On Saturday afternoon we booked into Blackies for 7pm. We arrived at 7pm and were seated by 7.05pm and given menus. It was 30 minutes later we got water and our order was taken. At the next table they were given entrees and the oysters were wrong but the waitress said that what they had ordered was wrong and their... More
