“Superb meal BUT”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

This was a fabulous dining experience. We also indulged with the degustation. We were celebrating a special occasion and the meal was everything we had heard or expected and more. Fab wine pairing too. Very nice French wines to start and some good Aussie reds as well. BUT some special touch was missing ?? I can't quite put my finger on what exactly the missing ingredient is as the service was good, not great a tad too professional not attentive perhaps. I have heard that this fine establishment is "hatted" I would say more beret than those wacko chef's hats !!

“Decedent food and fine service and finally redecorated”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We enjoyed the seven course degustation menu that also catered for one non seafood person. Beautifully presented food with quality ingredients. The new decor was much improved but a lacked the finest finishes that the restaurant of this caliber deserves.

“Wollonong's Finest”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

My wife and I have dined out at Peter and Nicola's on many occasions and have never been disappointed. This truly is a special place with superb food expertly prepared and presented. If ever a restaurant deserve a Fine Dining tag, then this one does. Wonderful food creations, beautifully presented, great service and a first class wine list.

“Special occasion restaurant”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

6 of us celebrating a few birthdays enjoyed the degustation menu at $90 per head. We chose not to have the wine package opting to choose our own 4 bottles of wine and a 6 beers. Expensive at $150 per head but it was a special occasion. The food was perfect and beautifully presented. At first I thought the portions were too small but 7 courses later and I was fully satisfied. The service was excellent staff were attentive & informed. I appreciated the added old fashion touch of scrapping the table cloth with a silver scrapper and the chef coming out at the end of the night to say hello. Wollongong is lucky to have this restaurant.
