Bonny Hills is a peaceful place that offers quality local dining options both in town and within an easy drive. There are even a few foodie surprises for those that want more than just a beach-side barbeque (and we think those are pretty good too!) Here are a few of our favourite dining out spots:

The Fat Fish Bistro

The Fat Fish Bistro is located at the Wauchope-Bonny Hills Surf Club, a relatively new clubhouse with modern finishes and uninterrupted beach views. They are open from breakfast to dinner most days, offering a well-thought out menu and even a kids menu. The Fat Fish bistro is known as a great breakfast spot, and the surf club opens Friday nights for a drink 5.00pm to 8.30pm where you can sit on the balcony and enjoy the coastal atmosphere.

Bonny Hills Garden Cafe

Bonny Hills Garden Cafe is located in the delightful Bonny Hills Garden Centre. Dining out at the Bonny Hills Garden Cafe is a unique and blissful experience. They are open for lunch 7 days and breakfast on the weekend (not open for dinner). The fenced playground for the kids means adults can relax and enjoy their coffee at a slower place.

The Sandbar Cafe Restaurant

The Sandbar Cafe Restaurant is located within a short drive from Bonny Hills at neighbouring North Haven. The restaurant offers pleasant views over the Camden Haven River and contemporary Australian cuisine with a few Asian influences. You can dine al fresco or inside, enjoy all day breakfast, lunch, a glass of wine or just great coffee topped off with something decadent from their selection of homemade desserts and cakes.

Oasis By The River Restaurant & Cafe

Oasis By The River Restaurant & Cafe is also at North Haven on the Camden Haven River. This family-run restaurant is a seafood lover’s paradise with their contemporary menu of quality local seafood. There are delicious meat options for the non-seafood eater too.

More dining out options

A little further afield Port Macquarie offers visitors to Bonny Hills too many dining out options to mention. We reckon the Australian Good Food Guide does a pretty good job of listing the better restaurants, so check their directory http://www.agfg.com.au/guide/nsw/north-coast-nsw/hastingsriverwineregion/port-macquarie/listings/restaurants-dining/.

There are a few real treats when it comes to mid-north coast produce too. Try Ricardoes Tomatoes (http://www.ricardoes.com) where you will find a cafe and of course lots of lovely tomatoes to take home. Amber Healing Farm (http://www.amberhealingfarm.com.au/) offers cooking classes and cuisine that promises to refresh, regroup, and to re-energise. There are also wineries in the area such as Bago Vineyards (www.bagovineyards.com.au) and Cassegrain Wines (www.cassegrainwines.com.au).

So for all you foodies who want more than just a great beach holiday, pack your bags for Bonny Hills. You won’t be disappointed in the many dining out options and gastronomic treats.
