We went on a thursday night when we just arrived and back again for the Monday buffet night. The carpaccio is refreshing and delightful. The batter on the fish is light and crispy, better than most of the shops in sydney. We love their fish so much we twice ordered a fish pack from there. Certainly good value if you... More

I loved this place - the fish was as fresh as I have ever eaten, in particular the carpaccio and the deep fried fish which had the lightest batter ever. I went on buffet night which basically means you get everything on offer. Obviously the freshly caught fish was the main attraction but I have to recommend the salads and... More

Monday night at Greenbacks was superb. Started with Trevally carpaccio which was a delightful gastronomic surprise. Then Tempura battered Blue eyed cod - so light and mouthwatering delicious. Then grilled King fish. Desert followed, and again, yummy. Then to make it even better, Friday night back again for Italian inspired seafood and once again, a delight to the palate. The... More

Was really surprised on the upside. Limited menu but amazing seafood. Wished it was open again so we could have gone back. Best meal of the four dinners we had on Lord Howe

We visited on a Monday night to the buffet. The restaurant is set on a lovely verandah. It was a set seafood menu starting with sashimi and followed by Red Emperor caught the day before. The main course was kingfish and a selection of salads. Dessert was optional. There was a very good selection of wines and these were reasonably... More

The meal we enjoyed at Greenback was one of our best on the island and we dined almost everywhere!. The food was incredibly fresh and was all local produce. It was casual and quaint and great value. We would have returned for another meal there but it is not open each night so we ran out of time. The red... More

OMGOOoooooodness, we would have eaten here every night if we could have. Delicious fish in a range of unexpected ways we have never had before and can't wait to have again, and then the dessert, OMG. We were then lucky enough to happen upon the sushi platter the next day for lunch which was also a beautiful healthy perfect treat.... More

I'm sorry I can't comment on the actual restaurant as it was closed during our time on the island. However, we did order a fish pack from there. Rang up to order using the courtesy phone at the information bay by the post office. Several beautiful fresh kingfish fillets cost us only $15. And the fish was delivered to the... More

On Lord Howe Island, we enjoyed many meals of fish; however, The Greenback Eatery's tempura king fish was exceptional!

This was our fourth meal on the island, and a pattern is developing ; grilled fish, and a buffet of salad and fries. The only thing separating this meal from the one at the bowling club is the entree and dessert option. There was no vegetarian option, ( even though we called several hours earlier, and were assured there would... More
