Do not order the prawns saganaki, prawns were overcooked and to be honest were not the freshiest, making them inedible on both fronts. Lobster was quite good for price, mornay could use some seaoning, but served with good honest steam veg and mash. All and...More

Hello Chef, We have some interstate relatives visiting us on Thursday14th & Friday 15th May 2015 & would like to take them to a nice Forster restaurant for dinner, where the main course would be fresh Lobster Mornay with fries and side salads etc. We have already dinned at the Sea Change on several occasions, and it's now our restaurant of choice. We liked the décor, service, menu, food and its presentation, and you have real tablecloths that ad to it all. In other words, you provide a standard to which we have become accustomed and can confidently enjoy time and again. Questions: (a) Given enough notice, and a down payment with our reservation request, would you be interested in catering for us on that occasion please? (b) If so, what might the approximate per main course be? Kind regards, Murray (Commander RAN, retired) Forster 0429 446 785
