The 2017 ‘Good Food Guide’ awards have been released with the local Mollymook Milton Ulladulla area excelling as a ‘Fine Dining’ regional NSW area. Acclaimed ‘Foodie’ judges awarded points out of a maximum of 20 with a minimum of 15 required for 1 hat

Rick Stein was awarded 15 points and acknowledged for its excellent wine list. The judges wrote “A Mediterranean beachhouse with celebrity status in a boutique resort“. They went onto mention that Rick Stein and the South Coast are famous for their seafood, so it makes absolute sense that the only restaurant from the BBC’s beloved chef is rocking one of the best examples of fish and chips in NSW.

St Isidore was also awarded 15 points. The judges wrote “Self-sufficient farming and coastal produce among the gum trees“. They went onto mention “two things to keep in mind when making a reservation at this testament to seasonal cooking: book for lunch and ask politely for a seat on the verandah. While chef Alex Delly’s food is top-notch in any situation, it’s made all the more delicious when sitting outdoors, watching cows and clouds on the horizon and listening to gum trees mutter to each other in the breeze.

Tallwood Restaurant (Honourable mention)

Cupitt’s Restaurant was awarded 14 points. The judges wrote “A 19th century stone cottage serving farmhouse style food and set in green countryside“. They went onto mention that great restaurants serve stellar eating experiences in rain, hail or shine and here we experienced a textbook example with an adjoining cellar door and cheese room.

Tallwood Restaurant was described as “slightly retro, surf kiosk style restaurant / cafe / tapas bar that pumps out share-plates as bright and cheerful as its artworks and crockery.
