The mosts delicious pizza I've enjoyed; loads of prawns, crispy crust and tasty sauce with garlic and rosemary highlights. The restaurant was packed, but the service was friendly, thoughtful but not intrusive. If you stay at the Surf Motel, you also get a discount voucher ... making Sassafras the best value in town.

Lovely friendly host -looked after children supplying things to occupy them. Not our children but we were impressed by the host walking around greeting everyone and making sure everyone was looked after and being very on the ball so to speak. Pizza was delicious crust not too thick ample toppings and a delight to eat. Desert was gorgeous and there... More

Absolutely fantastic meal at Sassafras for 4 adults. Everybody enjoyed! The prawn pasta dish was especially delicious! Noticed a lot of take aways being picked up while we were there also. Really busy on a Thursday night so might need to book.

We recently dined in and shared a pizza and a pasta dish. Both were very tasty and thoroughly enjoyed. Being BYO is also fantastic. We also had a home delivered pizza another night, and that was great too. The owner has been here for 14 years, so they must be doing something right. Highly recommend when visiting Yamba.

The garlic pizza was a bit hit by all. would i... More

Lived up to its reputation. The Yamba prawn pizza was amazing (take the extra prawn option). We coupled it with a garden tossed salad -delicious home made dressing. Our entertainment for the evening was a sound and light show courtesy of Mother Nature. highly recommend for a Yamba visit

I chose a pasta dish (Prawns and Fettucini) and I was fairly happy with it. My only suggestion is they should look at reducing the prawns and perhaps adding some scollops to this dish. My wife had a very good Pizza (Ham and Pineapple) with an excellent base. Well worth trying this restaurant.
