Recommended by our unit's host we ventured off here for dinner. Some personal tapas choices plus the owners suggestion meant the 4 of us enjoyed some delicious food. The drinks List was comprehensive. Service was just right- Someone just there when you needed them.

We had a fabulous night here starting with cocktails and then an amazing selection of taste sensations. Lamb meatballs, squid, fish cakes - lots of choice. We had a great waiter and would go back.

My partner and I visited Shorty's twice in our short stay at Lennox Head. Staff were wonderful and happy to make cocktails not on their menu. Tapas tasty and reasonably priced. Best bar in Lennox.
