We dined at the Gallery Cafe whilst visiting the excellent reconstruction of Margaret Olley's house in the Tweed Regional Gallery.

views from the cafe balcony can only be enjoyed by customers, ie those who BUY something from their overpriced menu. There's no table service, order at the counter when there's time to serve you, and brought to your table by a waitress who wants to know who's having the latte? It's a real pity this company runs the cafe.

The Gallery Cafe is located inside the beautifully architecturally designed Tweed Valley Art Gallery with inside and outside dining. The views over Murwillumbah and mountainside is glorious. The cafe is large, staff friendly and helpful. I had the lunch special of the day, Barra with avocado salsa with an ample serving of thick-cut chips. My husband has the vegie burger... More

We were staying in the area for a few days and visited the gallery around lunch time, so we decided to stay and eat - wow we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. I had the beef burger which was delicious and hubby had the chicken casear salad (he is very fussy with his salads), he raved... More

The gallery cafe is a must go to location if you're in the area. As the views from the gallery location are breathtaking. If your lucky (can be very busy) try to sit outside to really take in the view. The menu has a number of food options and quality is good but ipricey. Our group had a nice meal,... More

We visited on a busy day and right at the entrance of the cafe there was an awkward collision of two queues, with one of diners waiting to order and pay for their meals and the other of those who were waiting to be shown to a table. It looked messy, and we had some doubts, but once we got... More

Was taken up to the cafe by my parents. They could not stop raving about this place. We were told the view is amazing and the food is fantastic! It was raining when we got there but the view was still amazing. The surrounding mountains were poking through the clouds. The grass was green and the cows were happy. The... More

Regretfully I had the hamburger - the chicken & Leek pie had sold out. It was just terrible! The green tea was woeful with a strange taste (not flavour). I let my partner talk me into eating here after I had read enough reviews on TA to know in advance this could be an error of judgement (it was). Don't... More
