Had a beautiful meal at the Pub last night. The barramundi was excellent and the pizza and pasta delicious. Service was very efficient, highly recommended.

Clydesdale Motel & Steak Barn

Hong Kong Restaurant was great. The restaurant offers yummy, cheap Asian food, but the quality is amazing and I can see now why they have so many good reviews. All the waitstaff are there to help you out, the chefs have no problem adjusting your order to suit you either! Good atmosphere, it also offers a good vantage point for the downtown area. Wonderful experience, highly recommended.

Thai Satay Hut

Preordered Christmas seafood by phone - lovely young man took the order and gave pick up information. Arrived Christmas Eve to see a huge line up at the front of the shop but orders were from the back office - quick friendly service there as well- Our order was ready and packed in syrofoam Fantastic service at this busy time of the year. Thank you.

Northern Rivers Seafood

This place offers amazing food and service. We have never had a bad meal here, the food is always fresh and cooked from scratch. Made to perfection! Fantastic flavours and very good portion size. They have a small room which seats 12 but the food makes up for everything else. BYO and by far the best restuarant in Lismore. They also make a beautiful pizza too. I can't rave enough about this place, so people do your self a favour and dine here!

Trattoria Pagotto

Hi Beth, I am sorry you had a bad experience with us but in our defence I remember your situation very well. I checked your docket and from order to delivery was exactly 11 minutes, I am confused how one could expect to order and receive a freshly cooked meal in less time. If you would like to come in we can certainly try to make amends for your unfavourable experience. Regards, Management.

Tatt�s Bistro

Excellent food here, always fresh and lovely and the service was great too. Prices are good, not too expensive, in fact they have a lunch time special where you can order a meal served with Fried Rice for $9.00. We had the Mixed Entree, Duck in Peking Sauce, Fried Rice and King Prawns with Cashews and Vegetables, and 2 Cokes for only $54. We were charged 80c for the take away containers as we couldn't eat it all!

Abundance Cafe

Being locals, we eat a several times per year at The Mended Drum (inside the local pub) and I always choose the Caesar salad, which must be the best in the Northern Rivers!! If you like anchovies, you must mention that to get 'the full Monty'. (Too many people have wasted them, so they leave them out unless requested.) The other dishes look good, too.

The Mended Drum

If you're staying at the Casino Motor Inn you have the pleasure of dining inn. The restaurant is clean and serves tasty fresh food. Only open from Monday - Friday unless you pre book for a Saturday evening. Nice place for a romantic dinner.

Greenhouse Restaurant

My lovely friends took me to have dinner at Raya Chinese Restaurant late last year. All staff were so very friendly and there were lots of visitors. We order the meals and they come out very prompt. The meals are very good and came out in decent size portions too. This place is also worth a visit. Really lucky to have this restaurant in a country town like Alstonville. Hopefully be back again next time we visit.

Bunga Raya Chinese Restaurant

My lovely friends decided to take me to Palace Chinese and even though it was a Wednesday evening, they were crazy busy! I haven't seen a restaurant this busy on a Wednesday ever! We had to wait a little longer than the 15 minutes we were told (about 35 mins) which wasn't great but the staff literally didn't stop, busily taking orders at tables, at the counter, on the phone and handing out food. Very impressive. The food was fabulous and worth the wait, I can see why it's so popular. There were quite a few other Chinese restaurants that we walked past while waiting but all with very few customers. They were definitely all at the Mandarin Palace! Highly recommended.
