Not everything kid friendly has to disappoint the parents
We'd spent a lazy afternoon at the beach but decided to grab dinner before heading home. It was a little too early for dinner on the beach, so drove up to Bangalow to kill some time. It was only just after 5pm when we arrived, but the kids were complaining of hunger.
Most restaurants were yet to open for dinner, but Fishheads is open from Breakfast (8.30) through until evening. So in we went, the only people in the restaurant at such a ridiculous, but convenient for us, dinner time.
Some tables have comfy lounge seating, and there is pleasant outdoor dining. They also do a steady trade of take away, if that's what you're after. The decor is relaxed but funky and the music was even funkier. It made the early seating seem less late afternoon and more like an evening out, to linger over a drink and enjoy some fine food.
The menu offers a full range of stylish a la carte to fish & chips fare. I had the delicious local spanner crab ravioli, in a sauce of preserved lemon, fresh herbs and brown butter. It was delectable, though very rich. I did however, manage to wipe the plate clean but alas, no room for dessert, which was unfortunate, as they have quite an enticing range.
