We just adore coming to Yamba, and no trip to this lovely place is complete without a trip to the Pacific Hotel. Whilst we enjoy having a drink looking out at that stunning view, I can't ever help but be a little let down by the sub-standard service. It's quite apparent that some staff hate their job, or need a... More

We came here after great referrals however wish we hadn't wasted our time. Our meals took and hour to arrive, and the food was disgusting. Our fries were still frozen on the inside and the steak was cold. We also ordered fish and chips and it was as though the fish had been re deep fried, was that bad we... More

Holidaying in Yamba since 2005 - there have been many changes to dining opportunities in Yamba, but the restuarant in the Pub has been one you can always rely on. Decent food, million dollar view - just make sure you get in early or book a table as it gets busy.

I was a little late in the evening getting there which limited me to the pub side of the establishment where the band plays and you get access to the pub meals opposed to the full meals. The meal i had was just that, classic pub tucker that was "ok" and realistically was good value for money for what it... More

We ate gluten free duck leg confit of two legs and two thighs and cooked perfectly. The other ate a very tasty but tad salty beef and onion pie. Accompanied with glasses of wine from the solid list at the bar. Service staff were helpful with gluten intolerance.

Eating with ceiling to floor windows over the beach with a nice fish and chips was great. A very pleasant evening

( plus entree of King Island Brie was outstanding ) Slightly basic garlic bread and the grilled salmon was a... More

Dined on two occasions during our holiday. You cannot book, but does not take long for a table to become vacant. Food choices were enjoyed both times by myself and friends. Great selection and presentation excellent considering the amount of meals coming from the kitchen.

The view from the Pacific Bistro is beautiful and at sunset a real treat - I would recommend going to have a drink only! The service is NOT good, the staff obviously would prefer to be somewhere else or do not understand service, and the food is average. So many other great places to eat - have a drink enjoy... More
