This restaurant is NOT in Forster. Please amend the address to read Tuncurry. I can't believe people who ate there thought they were in Forster.

A lovely place for a quite or romantic meal even better if your staying at the motel. With a glass frontage you feel apart of the local area with lovely night vision of the bridge

Went for dinner and was surprised at how expensive the items on the menu were. Mains $35+. Was therefore expecting fantastic food, but it disappointed. Lovely waitress asked if the chat potatoes were OK, but when food arrived it came with mash. Why ask if you're not going to supply? The mash was good, but we'd have gone for chips... More

Excellent menu choices with generous portion size. Lovely owners and service from our friendly waitress for the evening was great. While decor may not be the most modern, the premises... More

Lovely owners. Pressed porked and vegetables were mouth watering. Salt/pepper calamari was great. Didn't have any wine but noted wasn't expensive. Would recommend Blackies to all my friends.
