A very relaxing business lunch environment with an outlook over the fishing boat harbour - this restaurant provides ample range for tastes. The scallops were delicious served with peas (in their normal state and deconstructed) spinach and cream. The lamb cutlets were tender. My companions had Balmain bugs or scampi served on a bed of risotto while I had food envy. Tip: ask for a table that allows for a view but does not directly face the sun.

Caveau

Reviewed By escape123 - Wollongong

The food was delicious and all from regional local ingredients. The degustation menu with the multiple course was plenty and we were very satisfied with the quantity of food. The description of the food for each course was great as were the stories to go with each of the courses a large portion of them from the chef and owner. It was lovely to hear the stories were not all the same with the different tables hearing a slightly different twist from the ones we could slightly overhear. Nice relaxed atmosphere and great for a special occasion

Samaras Lebanese and Mediterranean Cuisine

Reviewed By Sandy M - Sydney, Australia

My wife and I had dinner at Samara’s with our son and his wife and we were delighted by the experience. Although very tightly packed the ambience was good and wait staff were excellent.
The food itself was terrific too: fresh, packed with flavour, wonderful sauces and condiments and tender meats. This is not a fine diner but nor is it a cafe, and so it had the right blend of style and taste.
It’s casual too, with some patrons in thongs and T-Shirts, and it’s fully BYO with cheap as chips corkage ($2.50pp!)
There is something on the menu to suits every taste and we will definitely go back...
We would recommend you make a booking, sit back and enjoy!

Reviewed By johnnthel - Shellharbour, Australia

Three had breakfast here. Quite a popular venue with friendly efficient service. Traditional and healthy organic choices carering for all types.
We found the meals flavoursome and generous, good value. Only thing the place is small and a little crowded but the service and food offsets this.
Definately a positive choice in lower Crown Street. Parking in the morning was not an issue, nearly parkdd at the door.

Food still wonderful ordered lady in blanket, king prawn avocado penang, spicy beef rice and drinks for 2 about 45 dollars.
So food great but service not as great as normal on this night hence 4 stars. Maybe the waitress was new which is fine and won't stop us going back

This restaurant on Keira St is cosy and casual with the definite feel of Bali. The staff were very pleasant and service was prompt. The Bali Beef Rendang was delicious and all the dishes we sampled had a refreshingly different taste to them. The spices are definitive but don’t overpower the food.

Some of the best Thai in the center of Wollongong.
Be sure to book a table as it gets busy quick at dinner time, especially late in the week. Once booked, you're in, easy as.
Food is full of flavour and descent servings. Give the duck curry a crack and yes, even the pork ribs.
Location is in the strip of shops in the new GPT Wollongong Central on the western side of Keira St. next to Guzman-Y-Gomez
Full compliment of beverages and cocktails at the bar and reasonably priced for a city restaurant.
