Eating Out

Throughout the Valley there are dining options to please all tastes (and budgets), from elegant gourmet restaurants to funky casual eateries.

Refurbished country pubs capture the ambience of bygone times and offer quality restaurant or bistro dining, and there are al fresco cafe's where the surroundings are as invigorating as the cuisine.

Yamba's world renowned prawns are the stars of a rich parade of succulent seafoods that includes the Clarence River oysters and a fresh catch of fish. This rich bounty has inspired local chefs to create some extraordinarily inventive and tantalising menus.
