Highly Recommended, the purchase of a ‘Gift Voucher’ for use at the Tallwood Restaurant for that special person.

Tallwood Restaurant – Owner and Executive Chef, Matt Upson

Some very dear guests visiting Mollymook and staying at the Mollymook Beach Waterfront accommodation became aware of my wife’s recent 70th birthday and graciously purchased a ‘Gift Voucher’ for use at the Tallwood Restaurant, one of, if not their favourite restaurant on their annual visit for holidays each January into this beautiful area.

On their card they wrote: “To the wonderful June, a little something to keep the birthday celebrations going”. 

June was overwhelmed, she responded “what gift voucher could you give to someone that would be so useful, appreciated and enjoyed, as an evening at the Tallwood Restaurant.

We waited for the January Holiday rush to subside and then chose a carefree evening to savour the Tallwood Restaurant delights. For starters we chose ‘House sourdough and accompaniments’ an easy choice to enjoy with a recommended Pinot Gris wine.  Then the servings began. a) One of our favourites throughout the years since Tallwood opened is their ‘Portuguese fish cakes with saffron mayonnaise. We love this dish, so tasty! b) The twice cooked Duck leg followed with chilli vinegar, fragrant salad was mouth watering, so tender, the only way to serve duck in our opinion. c) Next we chose the market fish of the day, accompanied with eggplant, pomegranate, lemon, sumac. So tasty, the flours that accompanied the fish were nothing short of amazing.  d) We were already fully satisfied, the servings had been very generous, nonetheless as is my custom I had another dish on order. It was the beef rump with mushrooms ragout, silver beet and kipfler chips. Fabulous! The beef so tender and the accompaniments along with beans, broccoli, ginger and garlic filled with flavour.

Highly recommended should you be looking to give a gift to someone special that will be truly appreciated.

A magnificent entree of local raw fish

Tallwood Restaurant never disappoints

Executive Chef Matt Upson has this uncanny ability to bring out the finer flavours in each of the ingredients used in the various dishes. Our meal on the weekend could not be faulted. We began with the chefs selection for an entree of local raw fish. It was absolutely magnificent! This was followed by a shared plate of Korean BBQ chicken and we finished with Hanger steak accompanied with vegetables and potato dumpling. The food was of the highest quality and the service was excellent.

Winter specials not to be missed: Each Monday evening Tallwood are presenting the ‘Chefs Choice’. Three courses and a glass of wine for $45. Each second Sunday they have ‘Yum Cha’ on the menu.

At Tallwood we sampled small portions of the chef’s amazing signature dishes, all in one sitting with carefully chosen and amazing wines to accompany each respective dish. It was an appreciative fine dining experience of carefully chosen foods that focused on the gustatory system and the senses, with a high culinary art. It was shared with great company, family and friends. Guests asked me to make special mention that there was no fuss whatsoever in catering for some of our guests who had special dietary requirements viz, gluten free and vegetarian. All dishes were of the highest standard.

Fathers Day – Tallwood Restaurant Mollymook

.

Clayton Till – Host Extraordinaire.  It was ‘Fathers Day’ so we ask our host Clayton to choose our menu.

The 1st dish to arrive was ‘Raw Fish’. Never would I have chosen raw fish in my wildest dreams. It was absolutely magnificent! It was accompanied with a fabulous bottle of Hunter Valley ‘Levin’ Chardonnay.

The 2nd dish was spiced prawn cake. “I was blown away”, awesome!

The 3rd dish was a vegetarian plate. My mind was spinning, “Why a vegetarian plate, after the two previous magnificent dishes”? My wife and I tasted it and both agreed, you could not fault the ‘Heirloom carrots, labneh with the date puree’. It was an excellent compliment.

What would the 4th and final dish be we pondered to finish lunch? The servings were spot on with just the right ‘wait period’ between courses. Here we were serve an wonderful ‘crispy szechuan duck with scallops’. It was filled with flavours that would satisfy the most discerning customer. My wife loves duck and the consensus was over whelming – Magnificent!

Highly recommended!
