Does My Bomb Look Big In This?

Travel - Martine’s Café & Restaurant

WEBMartines-3 WEBMartines-2 WEBMartines-5

A mere twelve kilometres drive off the Pacific Highway is the beautiful and uncrowded Old Bar Beach. However what makes this sleepy seaside town notable to a foodie like me is that for the last five years, it’s also been the location of Martine’s Café & Restaurant.


Alongside an array of café standards, you’ll get a taste of owner Martine Mungoven’s Mauritian heritage in her wonderful chicken and prawn curry.


Other unusual touches on the menu include fresh-caught fish and chips dressed up with coconut chutney.


While you’re there, pick up a bottle of her famous hot chilli sauce – it’s made on a mix of chillies, but the prevailing taste is bright yellow habaneros. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
