Items that are not available locally, we source from Australia's best and pristine fishing waters.
Our menu changes with the season and is subject to availability so best to book in early!
Have been coming to Yamba for over 15 years and finally a 5 star eatery at Main Beach. Luke is the perfect host with a genuine love and passion for his calling... making people happy through their stomach. I never thought I would find oysters served better than natural... Sandbar oysters are the most amazing experience. Yamba has the best restaurants anywhere and we've just found the best of the lot.

Awesome. Been here for brekkie lunch and dinner. Enthusiastic new owners that are genuine. Food great and service with a smile. Have been coming to yamba for a few years now. Perhaps some other long term restaurant owners here need to take a leaf out of these guys book. It’s all about good food and also service with a genuine smile

The staff are friendly and welcoming as soon as you walk through the doors. The food was very good, my partner had anchovies and stated they were the best he has ever tasted. We both enjoyed everything we ate. It is in a beautiful spot with the beach at the end of the road. We returned for breakfast he next morning which was just as good.
