Not a bad lil place, visited with boyfriend. Very "organic" "we are hippies" Food interesting but pricey. Setting extremely casual to just sloppy. Has never seen a refit. Staff unfathomable, like fawlty towers. "Vegetarian pricing" ... Ouch!

This is an experience of Lismore you will cherish - a bit eclectic and out there with a menu that rarely changes but never fails to impress 20000 cows is one of Lismore's iconic restaurants.

I love coming here. Murray is a beautiful soul, who cares for animals. The wait staff are helpful, one is a bit curt. It's slightly disorganised, so don't be in a rush. Nothing matches, and that adds to the quirkiness. The food is divine. I bring as many people along as I can so they can try vegan food and... More

I love everything about the experience when visiting this venue. The most amazing vegan foods I have eaten and recently i introduced to an ever growing group of people. We now have made this a monthly get together, and will be back again this coming weekend.

Walking in seems like a 70's bad decor scene, but don't let your eyes fool you. The ambiance is serene but what really impresses is the food. Just amazing. Without a doubt the best vegan restaurant in oz. Desserts are nothing to write home about but entrees and mains are just divine, to die for. Some friends and I from... More

Perfect for foodies and the adventurous of palate and spirit. The atmosphere of this long standing institution is charming, creative and cozy. With friendly accommodating international staff and a vibe of welcome relaxation. The food is beyond words. A menu split into cuisines of inspiration to the genius chef, Indian, middle eastern etc, the range of delectable new experiences seems... More

We attended with out of town visitors for a celebration meal (BYO) and introduced one of our party to some new foods, new flavours and the joys of vegetarian cuisine. The service was very friendly and the menu selection included a range of Indian and Mediterranean dishes. The decor is original shabby chic and includes indoor and outdoor seating at... More
