Fat Tony's is an old harbourmaster's house overlooking the ocean from the top of the hill, one of the first homes built in the township of Tathra. It has a nice local, welcoming feel to it and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Having said that, I have dined here a few times and I've always enjoyed the food.
The service was great, much better than the last time I visited. The restaurant was fully booked out at this time of year, a hit with both the locals and tourists.
