I had a real laugh when I read the previous review of this tavern, as yes, it is a little rough around the edges. Unfortunately - or maybe it's fortunately - there's not much choice near Sapphire Beach unless you want to go into Coffs Harbour 9kms away, which I didn't. Anyway long story short, I ordered a 300 gram fillet steak medium rare and it turned out to be one of the best steaks I can remember having in a very long time (other than those I've cooked myself). The yokels ARE entertaining but don't let it put you off trying the food. Really good.
