Shearwater proved a great venue for a girls lunch with a lovely view over Coffs Creek and some excellent food. The grilled John Dory and accompanying chips and slaw salad were excellent and my friend thoroughly enjoyed her quinoa and vege bowl. Good coffee completed the meal. Service was friendly. We will be back.read more

I stopped into this place on my way back from the Botanical garden. Had a great breakfast while watching and listening to Coffee Creek (looks like a river at this point)! So peaceful, I had to come back this morning. I notice that not very many restaurants in Coffs Harbour have wifi. the Shearwater does!read more

Four of us came here for breakfast over the weekend and it was very good. The $12 menu has a good variety of dishes and we all selected of this menu, everyone had something different and we were all happy with our meals. Coffee is good and the service was friendly. The restaurant has lovely views over the water and you can watch the many fish from your seat. This restaurant is at the back of the Promenade and it's worth a visit even though the Promenade itself is full of empty shops these days.read more

They take traditional dishes and put a unique spin on some! I wish I could say I was equally impressed by the service. We dined here for breakfast and were very impressed The food was good and very reasonably priced. Can highly recommend the open ravioli with prawns. Likewise the brownie on the dessert menu is excellent.read more

Great location especially if you sit right next to riverside. Great breeze from the river. Relaxed atmosphere.We went at lunch. Booked a four people table. The table had a reserved sign for us. Good sign. Orderd salmon and snapper specials for the day. Came fresh, greatly presented and was tasty. Snapper was overcooked. Salmon was perfect. Beautiful location relaxed atmosphere and good service. Will recommend for anyone at Coffs. Must go for sea food. Ordered desserts after and was brilliant too.read more

The location of this tucked-away cafe is just sublime. It overlooks a bend in Coffs Creek which is as charming at sunset as it is for breakfast (we tried both). The snapper and salmon specials were both perfectly cooked although the tomato relish overpowered the fish. The share plate entree was spot on with mushroom arancini, pork belly and grilled haloumi. The fries were underwhelming as a side, being a little undercooked. The $12 breakfast was remarkably good and a wide range of options. The service was friendly and engaged at both times we met. Highly recommended.read more

Wowza! Such a beautiful place to come and watch the sunset. The cocktails by Josh were amazing we had the espresso martini , mojito and 2 long island! I was able to tell him how I prefer my cocktail and he made it with pineapple juice instead and it was out of this world. Great work to all the staff for making it such a lovely and welcoming experience. Can't wait for our next visit !read more
