Not a bad lil place, visited with boyfriend. Very "organic" "we are hippies" Food interesting but pricey. Setting extremely casual to just sloppy. Has never seen a refit. Staff unfathomable, like fawlty towers. "Vegetarian pricing" ... Ouch!

This is an experience of Lismore you will cherish - a bit eclectic and out there with a menu that rarely changes but never fails to impress 20000 cows is one of Lismore's iconic restaurants.
