The Menu

At Greenback’s Eatery we are conscious of the impact food miles have on the quality of your meal. We are always updating our menu to use in-season produce where possible.

We support the local community, utilising local produce such as pumpkin, sweet potato, cucumbers, bananas, lemons and fresh herbs in our dishes. All fish is caught on Lord Howe Island by our very own Dave Gardiner from the cleanest ocean in the world. Greenback’s Eatery also has their very own free-range chickens who provide all of the fresh eggs used by the restaurant.

  • Monday Nights: 3-course fish buffet $59pp.
  • Thursday Nights: 2-course set fish menu $49pp or for $54pp a third course can be added.

Fabulous fresh food

The meal we enjoyed at Greenback was one of our best on the island and we dined almost everywhere!. The food was incredibly fresh and was all local produce. It was casual and quaint and great value. We would have returned for another meal there but it is not open each night so we ran out of time. The red emperor fish was one of the most delicious I have ever tasted. Thank you .

Comparable to the finest

Monday night at Greenbacks was superb. Started with Trevally carpaccio which was a delightful gastronomic surprise. Then Tempura battered Blue eyed cod - so light and mouthwatering delicious. Then grilled King fish. Desert followed, and again, yummy.
Then to make it even better, Friday night back again for Italian inspired seafood and once again, a delight to the palate. The fish was caught on the day. Fresher than fresh.
Of the many wonderful eateries on Lord Howe, Greebacks stood out for us, but only just.

Great food and relaxing atmosphere

I loved this place - the fish was as fresh as I have ever eaten, in particular, the carpaccio and the deep fried fish which had the lightest batter ever. I went on buffet night which basically means you get everything on offer. Obviously, the freshly caught fish was the main attraction but I have to recommend the salads and puddings were amazing too. Also we were able to take our own wine which was not at all a drama although they sell this too.
