Small Town Food & Wine Restaurant

.

Alex Delly and wife Jo Thomas of St Isidore fame have opened their latest venture, ‘Small Town’ in the heart of Milton.

.

Their reputation alone speaks volumes for their ability to serve quality fine dining meals at affordable prices, having been awarded a ‘Chefs Hat’ by the ‘Good Food Guide’ in 2019, 2018, 2017, & 2016 and being ranked by ‘Gourmet Traveller’ in the top six N.S.W. regional restaurants in 2018, 2017, & 2016 with their previous restaurant, St Isidore.

My wife and I (Ken and June Banks) recently enjoyed the ‘CHEFS SELECTION MENU’ a degustation lunch. The fusion of flavours in each of the eight serving courses was extraordinary, each matched with quality wine that complemented each course. Alex, without a doubt has a unique creative genius in his vision and ability to prepare meal after meal that is amazing.

Some fine dining friends visited ‘Small Town’ two days later and were delighted by the delicate flavours and culinary skills of the chef with quality matching wines.  Guests from Mollymook Beach Waterfront have also been unanimous in eloquently describing their experience in regard to quality and variety of flavoursome dishes, service and ambience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Bookings can be made via their web site: Small Town Milton or via phone 02 44 54 2264

Claire’s Walkabout story thus far …..

Claire’s travel update to the swimmers: “Upon leaving Mollymook, I met my girl friend in Sydney where we started our road trip up north.

A bit north of Sydney we stayed for a couple of days at a kangaroo rescue farm, where the owner of the farm takes care of little orphaned joeys and lets them free again once they have recovered. We helped him feed the joeys and to look after them. That was an amazing experience. 

We travelled further north and visited a lot of beautiful places like Yamba, Byron Bay, Brisbane, Noosa, Rainbow Beach and a lot more. We did a lot of walks and hikes in National Parks and explored the inland too. I loved the National park at Noosa.

On the move again, I really enjoyed Fraser Island, where we stayed a couple of days and went swimming in Lake McKenzie, Champagne Pools and saw Dingoes. After Fraser Island we continued our trip up north and stayed in Bundaberg, Agnes Water, 1770 and a lot more places. I’ve seen so many beautiful places in the last few weeks and met so many wonderful people.

About two weeks ago we did a sailing trip to the Whitsundays for more than a week. We often went snorkelling, swimming, hiking and even climbed up the Lookout at Whitehaven Beach. Australia is so beautiful, in so many ways!

From Airlie Beach we drove to Townsville and did a trip to Magnetic Island. There I saw a lot of Koalas!

A couple of days ago we arrived in Cairns, it is so hot here! In the next few days I would like to do a diving trip to the Great Barrier Reef and then we want to explore Cairns hinterland and all the national parks and walks.

Then our next big stop will probably be Port Douglas. I’m having a wonderful time here but I miss you all back in Mollymook!

How are you all? How is the swimming going and how is it in Mollymook?

I’m not sure yet when I’m going to be back in Mollymook but I’ll let you know as soon as I know. I hope you are all well!  Please pass my greetings on to all the swimmers!” Claire
