TAVERNA 22 Marine Parade, Kingscliff, NSW; taverna.net.au Verdict: The ultimate Australian and Greek cuisine blend, combined with a view that would make jaws slack – even in Santorini. Although it’s actually the staff who make Taverna most memorable. Score:
We rated: A relaxed atmosphere that made gourmet dining seem like a dinner at home. Dishes that emphasise the quality of the North Coast’s produce. We’d change: Not a darn thing.Though perhaps we’d ask when booking if there are big groups likely today – the clever staff managed to negate a hen’s group of 15. Notes: Open 5pm till late, Thursday, Friday; and 12pm till late Saturday and Sunday (Sunday eveningis‘chef’stable’ banquet-style dining).
