About
Some of the world’s finest produce and best wine is found here in Australia. We source the best produce from small growers who share that passion and, inspired by our travels through Spain, Morocco and the Middle East, cook with fire and smoke. Our wine list also has a focus on small growers making great wine sustainably, with a few internationals that share that same ethos.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is now our favorite place. Why do we go to a restaurant...Main Reason To Eat, well this was Superb. the Food we had each course was maybe the best we have ever had. that's saying a lot but for us it was. It is...fine dining. the Zucchini Flowers are incredible. Note: the Lamb Shoulder is for 2. and the White Chocolate Sorbet is well Yum! Cocktails are delicious. the Staff are very pleasant and helpful. We will be back for sure. Maybe only other comment. not easy to park. but who wants to bring a car to the CBD anyway. close to Central station and tons of taxis uber whatever. thoroughly Recommend Nomad. 11 out of 10More

Loved this restaurant, yes the food is fancy but the staff explain everything to you and give recommendations and the food is lovely. You do get big portions however, you are advised to share a few dishes. Good value for money considering the standard of...the foodMore

Came here with a friend for a weekend food and drinks package special. Platter of food and bread was very tasty! And a mix of cocktails, wine and beer also. Great deal - and great staff as always!

The place had the most amazing service!! I wanted to commend Sarah (our server) who was just the most spectacular waitress. We came with 2 young kids and she made our little ones feel so special and welcome. My kids absolutely loved her! She also...made some excellent recommendations on food and wine. We had such a blast and a large part was due to the amazing service! The food was awesome too - the adults had the special tasting menu while the kids had the spatchcock (chicken). It was such an enjoyable experience!More

This experience was sublime. Each dish was perfectly beautiful, superbly plated, and delicious. The scallop was unparalleled. The empanada was paired with a delicately spiced pepper sauce. And the olive oil ice cream sandwich with pistachios was light, delicate, and smooth. Five stars!

Always great food and service at NOMAD. All tasting plates made to share. The pea hummus, kingfish, bread and salads are standouts. Good range of drinks by the glass and bottle also.

Nomad always leaves you exceedingly satisfied. Perhaps it is the ambience, or their warm and welcoming staff, or the delicate morsels that are trusted to tantalise even the most seasoned taste buds. Mark my words, their calm kitchen team will deliver culinary delights which are...guaranteed to be at the forefront of your food highlight reel for many years to come. Our favourite.

This is a great restaurant serving well cooked food in a fabulous venue. I especially enjoyed the dessert with the olive oil, which sounded questionable on the menu but was very enjoyable !

Nothing special AT ALL. We got the into banquet for $110 pp. Service was great. Food below average. So disappointing. I expected more. Ceviche wasn't fresh and had a heavy film over the fish and over lemoned. The fish dish wasn't anything at all. Salmon...again, nothing. The fluffy bread that all are do8ng at mo was great and the carrot dip great too. I won't be returning. No atmosphere.More

A big thank you to our sever Elle who was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. She nailed our experience as one of...the best we’ve had. We will return!More
