Went to the Loft Restaurant with some friends and we sat up in the Loft, as the name suggests. I really liked the atmosphere, it offered a very different, almost Melbourne-like atmosphere to dining. We all ordered 2 courses, some entree and main, others main and dessert. I must say, some of the mains were quite good, others not much... More

After the birth of our grandson in Lismore we decided to go out to this lovely restaurant to celebrate in style.We booked a table for 2.We were warmly greeted when we arrived and shown to our table. The service and food was exceptional. The wine and beer list was great.The atmosphere was very relaxed.

The food is great. Simple as that! It isn't cheap but worth every cent for a special occasion. Great detail to taste, presentation and balance. Highly recommended.

The food was perfect, at out table of 9 we each had a 3 course meal and everyone was extremely happy. Service was impeccable as well. Cannot fault the team at The Loft. If you haven't tried this place, it is a must visit. Perfect for every occasion, from a romantic dinner for 2 to a business meal for 10.
