Stopped in for the night at Yamba on the drive from Newcastle to Tweed Heads. After a late afternoon walk to the pub it was time for something to eat. The outlook was on to the crossroads, the tables were open and the evening breeze was gentle. Super friendly staff, relaxed feel and a wine shop across the road. A... More

This place is small on space and big on taste, Service great ,friendly staff, nothing too hard . It was without doubt as good a pizza as I've ever had . My wife has not stopped raving about the pasta.We can't wait to get back to Yamba to go there again

Thoroughly enjoyed the food, pizza, pasta. The service was good. The restaurant was crowded on the night we attended. They manage to fit a lot of tables into the space. Making a reservation could be a good idea.

The food at this place is brilliant. Smallish layout and the setting is not fine dining but you cannot go past the food. You have to eat here

My husband and I went to Yamba yesterday for a drive to see the moon come up. We dropped into Sassafras for dinner. It was just amazing. From the entree to the main meal it was just delicious. The service was over and beyond. From the time we walked in the door we had nothing but friendly staff and attention.

Our first time at this restaurant and we'll definitely return on our next visit. Our pizzas were all amazing and loved the "rat baits" a wonderful little bread starter.

We didn't reserve a table, and were fortunate to get the last available table for two. Prompt and friendly attention from the staff, and a pleasant chat with the owner as we waited for our pizza. This came surprisingly quickly and was simply delicious. Excellent food, friendly service, short wait and great value.

WOW.WOW.WOW! The man behind the restaurant operation.. 'Rob'..what a lovely, lovely kind man. He radiates an aura of goodness and love and this is served on a plate. If you are in Yamba this is a place not to miss. Fresh seafood straight from the ocean and cooked just the way you like it. My husband and brother-in-law spoke to... More

Rocked in at 7.45pm with no reservation. Place was packed. Was greeted with a big smile and we would get a table shortly. Took my mobile no. to call us when it was available. Five minutes later the four of us were seated and supplied with an ice cold carafe. We were looked after by a young German girl with... More
