We revisited Loquat after a previous visit 2 years ago. It didn't disappoint. Food was at same high standard - great menu. I had the twice baked goats cheese souffle and barramundi and it was absolutely yummy and memorable. Service excellent and a lovely atmosphere. Perfect for all ages. Another memorable dining experience and we will return!

Good food, delicious desserts, great wine list. Comes as set packages. Possibly one of best eateries in Sorrento. Restaurant ambience is off Pt Nepean road dark & offers no views but food is fine and delicious.

This restaurant is a hidden treasure. Doesn't look much from the main road, but as soon as we walked in, we knew that this was going to be good. We chose the 2 course option. I had the pork belly, which was just beautiful. The crackling was to die for. My husband had the beef brisket. He thoroughly enjoyed this... More

Last evening in Sorrento. I had booked a week prior. Lovely food and atmosphere. Staff, most friendly and helpful. Ordered a Crownie and perused the menu. All looked yummy. Complimentary bread roll and real butter served. Always a nice touch. Margarine is so yesterday. Chose the Manchego Cheese & Leek Croquettes { X3 } with White Bean & Pickled Fennel... More

Beautiful depth of flavours in all the meals we enjoyed. My partner enjoyed the Beef Brisket, while I dined on the Duck Confit. Absolutely lovely, service, atmosphere, food & wine... Can't wait for our next visit to Sorrento.

Well this restaurant was a surprise. I've driven past it for 5 years as it's partially hidden from Nepean highway. Inside the friendly staff chatted, guided us to our table and introduced the menu. We choose the $55 for 2 course option but shared an entre and a dessert. The food was superb. The wine list was not extensive but... More

For a fine dining or special occasion experience this is the place. Actually it has no peer in Sorrento. Set in a lovely converted house with a romantic and elegant setting each course was quality and well prepared, with a wine list to match. Not cheap but quality never is.

This is a fine dining restaurant, with excellent old fashioned service. Attentive but not invasive. We ordered the pork belly & the brisket, with sides of french potatoes & Brussels sprouts, and everything was excellent. The menu is quite limited, so not a place you would go to every week. The prices are on the high end, but you get... More

What an indulgence - a special dinner themed around duck created by Paul and Tracy for this annual event - not surprisingly booked out very fast! We were among the lucky ones to enjoy the 4 course meal and loved every one. A demitasse duck soup with porcini, truffle and white bean served in a tiny cup - rich. but... More
