A Taste of Tathra

Tathra restaurants and cafes source seasonal, locally-grown produce where possible. Farm fresh eggs, vegetables, fruits and olives from local orchards, herbs from local gardens.The Sapphire Coast with its unpolluted water has an abundance of marine life providing plenty of fresh seafood for our plate.

Local delicous and creamy oysters, Eden mussels, prawns, black fish, flathead, bream, lobster, abalone and much more. The freshly shucked Wapengo and Nelson Lagoon oysters have been winning awards for the past 10 years, and can be purchased direct from Tathra's oyster growers.

Planning a picnic by the water's edge, a spot of lunch at a cafe, or looking for a dining experience, you choose.
