Restaurant
“Wonderful Classy Cafe in Beautiful Sawtell Main Street, Close to Our Amazing Beaches. Great Place for Breakfast or Lunch and then a stroll around the main street and boutique shops. Followed by a dip in the Ocean. Sawtell Main Beach and Southside Headland are in walking distance. To walk off those extra calories from TREEO,s amazing food!!”

“The food, decor, service and feel of the restaurant is so great. It is not a cheap restaurant but the food is worth it. Try crayfish sausages! This restaurant is designed for sharing meals if you wish and has an ever changing and tasty menu.”

Restaurant
“The lovely Bevan and Natalie are the owners at Taste. Bevan runs an amazing 1 man show in the kitchen which is amazing in itself!! My all time favourite at this restaurant is the Duck Spring Rolls, we also enjoy the soft shell crab, beautiful steak and twice cooked duck just to name a few. This restaurant is more of a Fine Dining Quiet Affair. ”
