    Neptunes at Northside: My favourite steak sandwich + chips

    by unravelau Updated Nov 22, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As often happens this little shop changed management and is not a favourite of mine any more unfortunately.
    I get steak sandwiches and hamburgers now from a fish and chip shop in the laneway off Orlando street and they are something to write home about. Next door but a playing field from the porpoise pool.

    They are always full of customers but their service is quick and good. A friend of mine buys fish and chips there and says they are best she's had but she hasn't tried my favourite place yet.

    Saltwater Cafe: Food by the sea

    by iandsmith Written Aug 27, 2013

    It's one thing to have a location for your restaurant, it's entirely another to have a menu and service to match. This place has both.

    Favorite Dish: I really can't recall what I have eaten here except for one of the fish dishes. Whatever I've ever eaten has been very good and the staff are service oriented, something you don't necessarily get at other seaside restaurants in the area.
    If you plan to dine here weekends it can pay to book ahead as it is very popular and may be temporarily booked out.

    The Tide and Pilot (name has changed Aug 2012).: Sit under the sails in fine weather.

    by unravelau Updated Aug 13, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tide and Pilot

    Great place for a cup of coffee or tea from 7am in the morning, with or without breakfast. Snacks and full lunches, and then for a full menu upstairs in the evenings. Just recently they have made coffee and breakfast available upstairs on the glassed in deck or the restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: Recently the Tide and Pilot has been taken over by the Fisherman's co-op so there have been a few changes made but they serve the same fresh food and Lavazza coffee is still flowing.

    Eat Street - High Street (part of Harbour Drive): Choice of Many - A General Coffs Dining Tip

    by aussiedoug Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some of the choices

    It's funny how we recognise that many cities have what we term "Eat Streets", but rarely do we think of country towns in the same way.

    Well, in Coffs Harbour in the old "High Street" which is now part of "Harbour Drive", as you drive down the hill from town iteself, heading towards the jetty, you will find not just a couple, but 12, yes twelve restaurants with most of them being right next door to each other.

    Favorite Dish: Being a series of Restaurants I can't possible give you a favourite dish & tell you why it's so good.

    However, I can give you a litst of the restaurants & tell you what I observed the night I had dinner at Scoff's

    I'll go from the bottom of the hill walking uphill with these places now on my left.

    Faro Latina was patronised by a good sized crowd who seemed to be enjoying the food & the atmosphere.

    The Waterhole Brasserie was not as crowded, but their menu looked good to me.

    The Fisherman's Katch was one of the places I seriously considered before settling on Scoff's as they had a gr8 range of Seafood choices & a delicious sounding Atlantic Salmon dish.

    Fountain Vietnamese had a reasonable crowd.

    Scoff's where I ate was quite good, butr maybe not as good as I anticipated, but remember I'm a bit picky when it comes to my tucker!

    The Crying Tiger Contemporary Thai. This was the most crowded of all the restaurants along here so that must say something about the quality of the food. Have to try it next time.

    Tandoori Oven was next & I didn't notice too much about this one other than to tell you here is a choice of Indian food amongst the choice of many.

    Vibes was next & here's where I had afternoon tea & will definitely dine on a revisit to Coffs. Interesting clientele here looking a bit more hip & cool than diners at the other places. Quite busy it was too. Good menu selection.

    Golden Crown Chinese was next in line with reasonable patronage.

    The European which I can't tell you much about.

    Maria's Italian Kitchen had a fair crowd & is one of the original couple of places from here back when there were only a couple of Cafes?Restaurants along this stretch.

    Lastly the Tahruah Thai Kitchen rounds out your possible cining choices in Coffs Harbour's "Eat Street". Have fun making your own choic & please write about it so next time I'm there I can make an informed choice. Buon appetito!

    Spotlight on Cafe Aqua at Park Beach.: Catch Cry now-a-days......Let's Do Breakfast

    by unravelau Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe Aqua sandwiched between holiday flats, pardon

    Well, I had seen this one a few times when I had been going to the Park Beach Bowling Club for dinner, and thought .......... I must try that out. Well a few friends headed to another place this morning only to discover that they were closed and so we decided to try the Cafe Aqua out.

    Very pleased that we did.

    Favorite Dish: Well, I guess this will the beginning of a long association but so far I have only sampled breakfast.

    I had scrambled eggs on toast with a slice of bacon. Gen (aucangen) had scrambled eggs too while Dave and Joyce (potterist1) had an acronym LOL ......... three letters which meant lettuce and stuff on foccacia sandwich toasted..........Joyce added avocado........all quite yummy from my perspective.........none of us left anything.

    Coffs Harbour Game Fishing Club: Food with a view

    by iandsmith Updated Nov 9, 2010

    What you have here is a restaurant with a view. You'll probably forget about the food if it's your first visit as you'll be so taken in by the panoramas north and south.

    Favorite Dish: I've only eaten there a couple of times and the fare was palatable without being gourmet. You expect that in just about any licensed club in Australia.
    If you are a member there are good specials to be had (they vary from day to day) and, if you plan to stay in Coffs for a week or more, it might be well worth you joining as it's only a minimal fee.

    Greenhouse Tavern: Children Friendly

    by suzyq40 Written Apr 19, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a great find for Coffs Harbour, and there arent many other similar places around Australia, well wherever I have been anyway.

    The meals here are cheap, drinks are cheap and the entertainment for children is fantastic.

    There is a indoor kids play area, complete with 5 or 6 different games to play, a dvd room and the outdoor playground. No parents or adults are actually allowed in the play area, which means there is peace of mind for parents. There are also video monitors of the room so you can keep an eye out on the little ones, and what mishchief they are getting up to.

    Meals are large, cheap and fantastic.

    Favorite Dish: We went on a Saturday and Sunday night.

    Sunday would have to be the best for value. Sunday Roast for $11.90, which includes a drink or house wine, a beer or soft drink. So effectively you get a roast for $7.90 as the drinks are valued at $4.00

    Childrens meals come with a soft drink and ice cream.

    Their Sticky Date Pudding is to die for!

    The Fisherman's Co-operative: The fish jump out of the water

    by unravelau Updated Apr 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fisherman's Co-op.
    1 more image

    The Fisherman's Co-operative is conveniently situated where land meets water in the Coffs Harbour Marina, and where the fisherman offload their catch and stock up on fuel for the next trip.

    You can buy (of course) fresh seafood of every variety here....... the left hand end of the building or you can have the cooks, cook it place it in a tray and bag and take it........either all of the way home or just to the tables and chairs on the deck or to find a spot amongst the seagulls and fishing boats. They also offer a range of fresh salads small and large. I am rather partial to the greek salad that has plenty of olives, cucumber and fetta cheese...... Fantastic.

    Favorite Dish: Fish and chips is my favourite because I am not partial to crustaceans or molluscs although you would be able to get the very best here. Had fish cocktails with chips (and tartare sauce) as well as a beautiful side salad .

    The Muffin Break: My most favourite coffee house

    by unravelau Updated Apr 9, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View of the Muffin Break from one of 250 seats.

    The food is always fresh, affordable and appetizing, and muffins are the speciality. They even have varieties for the weight conscious too.

    Coming into winter '06 you might be pleased to know that The Muffin Break introduced soup to their ever increasing menu last year.

    Favorite Dish: I love their savoury muffins, their individual ciches, carrot cake or bagels.........just yummy.

    The food, ambiance and location of this brasserie make a wonderful place to impress your fellow travellers.
    I still dream of the prawns that were melt in the mouth fresh, an experience I had not had since my youth growing up in NZ when we scooped the seafood from the ocean and cooked it there and then.

    Favorite Dish: Mine is the seafood but never mind if you do not eat seafood there are meat dishes also.

    Dine al fresco or inside, and have your choice of the standard big breckie or one of a variety of dishes catering to a wide taste.

    Favorite Dish: When I go I usually have the big breckie and starve myself for the rest of the day. It consists of two eggs, bacon, 2 mini sausages and slices of tomato on two slices of toast .
