8 friends went for dinner, a nice night out with good food and company. You can dine indoors or out on the verandah with a view across to the river. Service was good and the meals were well cooked and plentiful

Matildas is primarily a seafood restaurant hidden away near the river in Nambucca Heads. The food is excellent as is the customer service.

Nice place and good service. We ordered an entrée of a prawn skewer which was not at all good. Very watery tasteless prawns. Ordered a medium rare steak and it came out medium/well done and tough. Not what we expected.

Delicious food with unique natural flavour pairings. Presentation and overall vibe of restaurant could use updating. Resonably priced. Well worth a visit overall.

We had a lovely meal. Oysters were fresh and you could taste the salt- love that. Steak was cooked to perfection and exactly how I asked (which is hard for some chefs). Hubby had the coral trout and said it was the best crumb he...More
