“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We have been dining at Blackie's Restaurant for many years and always enjoy ourselves. The friendly greeting is the beginning of a great night. Menu is great and takes full advantage of the fresh produce and seafood from the area. The evening would not be complete with one of the fantastic desserts on offer.
For New Years diners the restaurant is a great place to celebrate New Years Eve. The view of the early fireworks show over Wallis Lake is a must, the display is fantastic. We have already reserved our spot for this year.

“Beautiful Food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Best oysters kilpatrick ever!!! Duck was perfectly cooked and "melt in your mouth". The plum sauce complimented so well. Steak was so tender it hardly needed cutting and was cooked exactly as ordered. Steamed fresh vegetables were also perfect. The service is friendly and staff are more than willing to accommodate their diners. Great food, great value. We eat at Blackies whenever we are in Forster and we recommend this restaurant highly.

“Average despite being recommended.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011 via mobile

Some what limited menu with a focus on modern Australian. Which I thought was over-priced for what was delivered.

Service however was quite good, friendly and attentive.

Wine list was appropriate for the menu offered but again a tad over-priced.

This restaurant would do well with a seasonal constantly changing menu focusing on local ingredients.
