We also love to personally try out new restaurants wherever we travel. Most of the time, the enthusiasm of a new operator means that we enjoy a superb gastronomic experience.

For example, we've found that Cupitt's Winery and restaurant [just near Milton/Ulladulla/Mollymook] is providing exceptional fare at reasonable prices and a great selection of wines [for a newly established winery].

  • Candalagan Cafe, Broulee
  • The Rivermouth General Store, Tomakin aka Sunpatch
  • BistroOne46, Kangaroo Valley
