As a foodie always keen to try out somewhere new, especially in my current "home-town" I'd been trying to get a booking here for a while. Disappointed would be the best way to describe my feelings after coming here. Whilst I understand they are trying...More

Loved this place. Such a great find in a back alley of a country town. Terrific, creative, delicious food. The lamb shoulder was divine, cocktails went down well and the dessert was to die for - chocolate fondant. Yummo. The only bad thing was that...More

Uncomfortable seating . My prawn entree had 3 small prawns in a burnt tasting sauce. When paying for my meal, the waitress handed me a calculator to sort out my bill. Seriously ? Expensive for a small,less than average meal.

Overall a rather disappointing dinner. The only highlight was the excellent dessert!! The pork was a little under cooked, the gnocchi was also doughy. Extremely uncomfortable chairs that you could not lean back on. Noisey room especially when the men’s table started up. Outdoor seating...More

We had a birthday dinner at the New loft. We both had the lamb shoulder which was succulent and perfectly seasoned and cooked. The parsley purée was a delight. A unique twist on the affagato was well received.

Recently dined here as it is under new ownership and we were keen to check it out. The new decor is fresh and modern and the food is still very much 'the loft' style, which is great. Great dining experience and one of the best...More

Tables always look attractive, staff are organised and helpful with advice. Staff know about wines. I've never had to wait long for the meal. The meals are not super sized - they're generous without being too much. Original and interesting combinations. Good ambience upstairs -...More

Shoot them a message on Facebook. I think they are back up and running after the flood. Trip advisor won't let me post a link but just search the loft Lismore in Facebook.
