Taste Bathurst

Casual fine dining, gastronomic pub food, international cuisine, and delicious cafe fare.

The Bathurst region yields some of the highest quality produce, and local eateries are leading the way in bringing this produce to plate in innovative, sophisticated and delicious ways. You can purchase fresh regional produce monthly at the Bathurst Farmer’s Market, or during your stay from Bathurst Wholefood Co-Operative.

Dining in Bathurst also allows you to experience the region’s heritage, with many of the most sought after foodie experiences housed in heritage buildings, converted into atmospheric restaurants that the locals can’t get enough of and we’re sure you’ll love them too. 

Many of the local restaurants listed are still operating within the guidelines of COVID-19. We recommend checking with individual businesses as to their current availability.
