Wonderful to find such a great restaurant in the small town of Brunswick Heads. Wonderful food, varied menu, knowledgable friendly staff, interesting decorations etc BUT - what could be wrong? A group of five obese cackling women dominated the small restaurant so much so that we had difficulty talking about three tables away. When I suggested to the manager that he have a quiet word to them about their lack of consideration to other guests he said "they are good customers". In is no use restauranteurs going to so much trouble to present such a good product but not care about this type of situation and I must say it is not unusual to have a similar situation in other restaurants.

Loved the food, but a very large group in the restaurant made it for a noisy night when we wanted a quiet one. (I also think that if you want to do a locals' night - just do it for everyone or at least don't make it obvious that you are offering it to some out-of-towners and not others) We were happy with the value that we received and will definitely return when next we are in Brunz.

Dining here helped us get over our post-Bluesfest Blues. Great service; friendly and attentive but not overbearing and the waiter gave the right advice on how many dishes to order for our group of 4.
We did wait a little while for the food to start coming out but this showed it was cooked freshly to order and not just heated up.
The Croquettes, Olives and Garlic Bread for entree were excellent and the Souvlaki and Squid for "main" were fantastic too.
A perfect final supper before our group all headed home to different states. The prices are reasonable, the atmosphere and service on point. Highly recommended and we will be back next year! Keep it up Fat Belly Kaf!

The food was good but the service was extremely slow. Had to wait an hour before we saw our first drink and a little longer for entree.

The food was absolutely top notch. We all loved the banquet meal. However two and a half hours with a bunch of kids was a bit long for a dining experience. It was close to an hour to get our drinks served !!! Short staffed much.....
