No 2 Oak Street is an à la carte restaurant situated in beautiful Bellingen on the Mid North Coast of NSW.

The distance between Aniseed & the restaurant is a picturesque 10 minutes drive. The restaurant is located in a 1910 heritage cottage which was totally restored by restaurateurs Toni & Ray Urquhart in late 1995.
