The food was perfect, at out table of 9 we each had a 3 course meal and everyone was extremely happy. Service was impeccable as well. Cannot fault the team at The Loft. If you haven't tried this place, it is a must visit. Perfect for every occasion, from a romantic dinner for 2 to a business meal for 10.

Some of the best restaurants in the world are hidden treasures run by passionate, modest chefs. This is one of them.

The staff are so relaxed and welcoming from the very start. Yes, it is in a refurbished light industrial building but the renovation suits it perfectly. The food was perfect. They have designed a different mix of flavours and textures. Great wine list. We'll be back. Our favourite in Lismore

We were lucky to be able to get into this restaurant, as it's booked out most of this week, but were glad we did. The service was warm and friendly, the atmosphere was cosy and chic and the food was marvellous. A delicious dish of complimentary warm bread with dukkah and olive oil was brought with our choice of still... More

I was in town with my wife and we couldn't get into "Fire in the belly" So we headed here and are so glad we did. A romantic ambiance, excellent food and great value, tucked away in a side street. Lismore's hidden gem.
