Description: Fat Tony's is a Restaurant/Bar set in the historical 'Harbourmasters house' in the coastal town of Tathra. Offering a modern Australian menu in an environment that can be relaxed through to buzzing, Fat Tony's has just clicked over 10 years of operation. Book for a party group, a family get together or a night out as a couple. Drop into our funky little bar if it's just a drink you are chasing. If you are considering a night out please give us a ring to book and avoid any disappointment. We are happy to accommodate patrons without booking but note that our kitchen may be shut by 745/8 through the quieter times. A big thank you to those who have had a good experience over the years and taken the time to drop us a message via Tripadvisor. Cheers, Ant & the Crew @ Fat's

Had dinner here with wife and kids and was not disappointed, had the obligatory steak topped with prawns and wrapped in bacon. Wifey had Fish as she loves seafood when at the beach. Quite delicious, friendly service (albeit the waitress seemed a little young to know about "stuff" but was happy to ask when she didn't know). Atmosphere was a little noisy but at least it was lively. Went to the pub down the road and there was only 6 people in there at 7pm, very quiet. Overall a job well done & I'm happy to have spent some hard earned cash on a decent meal. Thank you :)

My partner and I stayed in Tathra to get away from the cold wet weather in Canberra so we looked up Trip Advisor and Urban Spoon and both highly recommended Fat Tonys. First of all, the service was fantastic. Anthony the owner rang me after I booked on his answering machine to tell me he had a huge function booked and helped me find a different time he could accommodate us (other places just tell us they're booked out without even trying to negotiate a different time). The service continued the moment we stepped inside the restaurant. Secondly, the food was fantastic. It was high quality beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. And the team of chefs were working very hard and despite the restaurant being very busy, we were not kept waiting for our meals. Thirdly, the decor and lighting was also quite nice. We will definitely go back again. Fourthly, fifthly, sixthly, seventhly and eighthly, the price was very reasonable for the great meal we had.

We have dined here several times over the past few years & Fat Tony's run by the very slim & super personable Anthony is well worth revisiting.

Good value, good food, super friendly service in a setting that just works. Its a quirky place with a funky little bar out front with the gas fire on a cold evening, tables to seat approx 55 & good wheelchair access with an accessible toilet.

The wine list has lots of choices with some wines < $25 per bottle. You can also get cocktails & other speciality drinks from the bar. The food is good, not haute cuisine, but well above average for the NSW South Coast. This is arguably the best all round place to dine that we have discovered.

One tip - book ahead. This place is very popular with the locals & its often hard to get a table at short notice, even in off season.

Was in Tathra over the Queen's Birthday long weekend and had heard good things about Fat Tony's so decided to give it a go. They lived up to their reputation with fantastic customer service, lovely atmosphere and absolutely amazing food. Had their Winter seafood dish and was very impressed. All 5 of us were extrememly happy with our meals. If you're ever in Tathra, this is the place to eat.
