The same people but with a new name and a new asian fusion thing going on. This was, by far, the best food we had in Mollymook. Totally memorable and a place I would travel distance to go again. I wish it was in Sydney!

The 4 course set menu (plus delicious sourdough and beetroot dip) had 3 choices per course. They were stunning especially the cured raw fish with charcoal cracker and oysters. And they were so safe - tables widely spaced, lots of room, sign in and sanitizer....We felt very safe. Pre-booked and pre-paid. No stunning views but a really great meal.More

After a really bad experience at Carlo’s Italian in Ulladulla the night before, Tallwood made up for it with a perfect night. The restaurant ambience was social but intimate, the service was attentive and warm and the food was perfectly cooked, interesting and delicious. Food...came from a 3 course set menu that included ceviche, duck salad, fish, beef, vegan/veg options and some decadent desserts. The oysters were amongst the best I’ve ever had. The wine was diverse and paired well with the food options. Throughout our meal the wait staff kept water refilled and were happy to have a chat about the food, wine and local area. I envy the locals who have this little place in their backyard and hope we get the chance to come back and try more menus in future. Good luck and cheers guys.More

What a great night! Lovely wine (Nick O’Leary Riesling and Shiraz) and a beautiful set menu with three excellent choices per course. Fresh, innovative, and value for money. We can’t speak more highly of Tallwood. Forget the big local names and go for honest, fresh...flavours that will not disappoint. Maître d made the whole experience complete and unforgettable. Good job, Tallwood.More

My Husband and I dined here for a “Street food Sunday”. We had a great arvo with delicious Italian food, great music with a friendly fun vibe and all round great service. Can’t wait to dine in again once restaurants are permitted, however I am...really enjoying the take away.More

We had the most amazing tall wood burgers as a take away during the COVID lockdown!! The flavours were so amazing they just melted together on a nice freshly cooked bun that had the perfect amount of softness and the perfect amount of crunch!! The...only bad bit is that I cannot go back for more every weekend!! Tall wood never fails to impressMore

My partner and I visited Tallwood with her parents for a midweek dinner. The food was amazing and the staff were second to none. We felt like we had a personal chef cooking for us and had two lovely waitresses attending to us all night....We loved the surprise of each dish and the chef made a few changes to the dishes at our request. The atmosphere was comfortable and warm. Can't wait to go back.More

Friends with good judgement had dined here at the ‘Locals night’ on a Monday a year or so ago and loved it. Sadly, it’s changed. A fixed price ($60/ head) menu including a glass of wine. Mushroomy bao to start, then brisket, and rice with...a few stir fry veges, bread and butter pudding. The bao was delicious, the rest ordinary. Cheap food at not so cheap prices. Seated at an awkwardly situated table that was so wobbly the wine spilt on serving, the server commented that the table had been like it for months. That’s how the place felt. Really very cheeky as far as value goes. Dined at Cupitts on their degustation night and there was absolutely no comparison - excellent, seasonal food at not a lot more $ than Tallwood.More
