We had a wonderful dining experience. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and the wait staff went above and beyond to make it a memorable night.

We visited straight after covid lockdown whilst in Port Macquare for a few days. It was lovely to be out & dining again. The service was excellent & the wine list unbeatable anywhere in NSW outside of Sydney. Whilst we enjoyed our night out we...were disappointed by the food compared to our last visit. The mix of flavours in both the entree & mains, portion sizes (2 scallops for entree) were fine just not great.More

Celebrating new-found freedoms, we took our daughter and son-in-law, visiting from Orange, for a Saturday evening meal. Seven-month old Olive was with us. I always find children a good gauge of the quality of front-of-house hospitality. They looked after her very well, and she naturally...behaved perfectly. Johann pronounced the wine list among the best he's seen, and he's in the hospitality game himself. Yes, he had the house specialty; Patagonian tooth fish harvested from Australian Antarctic waters. As good as he's ever had, he said. We all had different entrees and mains in the 3-course prix fixé menu and shared the unctuous desserts. Everything we had was as promised and more. My test of the kitchen is how they accommodate vegetarians. I was slightly disappointed to see only one vegetarian dish (lacto-vegan in fact) on the entree list and none on the mains. But the house-made squid ravioli came close, with the amount of squid flavour balanced by herbs, pasta and vegetables, so it was a good compromise. The front of house staff obviously all enjoy their jobs. Judging by how well they know the food and wine list and their demeanour, I think they have been there a long time. This is always a good sign in the hospitality business.More

We loved the creative menu and the amazing wine list that both reflect a passion for food and wine. The service was excellent. We like the imaginative fit out of the restaurant, especially the wine “cellar”. The only negative was the constant reminders about the...booking and the cancellation policyMore

The service was excellent,my Entree of Scallops was superb,my main of toothfish was delicious,BUT the standout dish was my wifes upgraded Wagyu steak with a perfectly matched sauce. The atmosphere is elegant yet inviting. Hope to return soon , and this time i shall order...the Wagyu all for myself.More

Great service, food and ambience. Perfect dining experience! Meals were nicely spaced and didn't feel rushed to get out of the restaurant. Would go back again!

The Stunned Mullet's ready to prepare food packs are a revelation! Their well-sourced ingredients, innovative recipes and the friendly reception you receive when you pick them up are just the start. Instructions for preparation are clear, succinct and work every time. Then you have the...fun of preparing the dinner at home. At your own pace you finish off the meals they've prepared. They work beautifully. Plus, the aromas of the meal persist in the home for the rest of the night. Please keep this up after lock-down. It is very special, particularly for us foodies.More

Lockdown take home dinner was such a treat on a Saturday night. Pick up easy, between 12-3 on Saturday. A whole Duck was in foil trays ready to oven roast for 40 mins. Had already been cooked, so hence short time in the oven. All...condiments in neat packages to display yourself on a serving platter, cucumber strips & curly thin shallots. Rice pancakes were in 3 individual packs, 6 in each pack, generous amount. Microwave wave as per instructions. So fine and delicate and easy to peel off each other. 18 in all! Hoi Sin sauce and another chilli side topped off the dish. So delicious and moorish. We had enough left over for an entree on Sunday. Reordered for this weekend, Decadent dinner for two. Good review on this site :) Thanks Stunned Mullet for being creative and responsive in these times.More
