Have been to all the hatted restaurants around Sydney - Caveau is just as good if not better than a lot of them. Keep up the great work.

Yet another great experience at Caveau! I love that I don't have to travel to Syd to get top quality food packed with favour!
Service fantastic, and had a good chat with Peter, the head chef there, at the end of our degustation meal.
LOVE that the menu constantly changes and love that their focus is degustation.
Everything beautifully presented, every course tantilises the taste buds!

If you don't like fine dining, then don't go and then and write a terrible review- this is not a steak and chips restaurant so if you're hungry after eating here, go back to Outback Steakhouse cause its where you probably belong!!!

We visited Wollongong on business recently and ate one evening at Caveau. For a sleepy country city it was such a surprise. The cuisine - too good to call "just food" was perfection. We didn't have the degustration as we had had a largish lunch. We did have a seafood entree which was light and exquisite. Our main - we both had duck was beautifully prepared and a dessert of rasberries, peach and tapioca - outstanding. The staff were lovely, helpful and with appropriate attention.

Would we eat there again - you bet we would. This restaurant is international standard and compares to the best.

Caveau is arguably the best restaurant in Wollongong. Chef Peter is one of the elite ex-Banc restaurant crew who have populated some fo the best restaurants in Australia ...and the UK.

His take on a pain perdu using avocado creates a visual dischord with its green tinge - but a mouthfilling and mouthwatering explosion of flavours in the mouth. This is a four star quantum leap of French toast that is the perfect finishing touch to a Caveaux excursion into the magical animal the pig. Pork and avocado perdu - truly a 'Gong specialty.
