“What a surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Tonight we have had one of the best meals ever. I have never been to mollymook before & this restaurant was recommended by one of the locals. The food is divine. The service was friendly & informative. The decor modern. Do not miss going here.

“Finally Fabulous Food in Mollymook!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

As Mollymook residents we are so happy that Tallwood has opened its doors!!! We have been there 4 times since it opened and each time has been consistently good. Fabulous, tasty, interesting food that won't dissappoint if you're a foodie! Good prices, wine list, great staff and fab atmosphere. Recently dined there with friends from Berry and they want to go again soon just to have the paella!!! (which was a special for the night)
Haven't been for breakfast yet, but will correct that soon!

“Excellent food & amazing service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

I have dined at Tallwood on a couple of different occasions and each time has been a second-to-none experience. From the menu, I've tried the Mahi Mahi, Eggplant Balls, Lamb Kofka, Ricotta Salad, Taro Chips, Appletini and the Stone Fruit Belini. The taro chips make a delicious starter and the desserts are to-die-for! I could have had 10 of the appletini's it was so good. The food is definitely affordable and fantastic quality.

Other than the food, the atmosphere of the restaurant is great and the staff are excellent. Our waitress, Corryn, was very attentive with an extensive knowledge of the menu and was happy to recommend dishes for us. Corryn is a value to the restaurant as I am sure the rest of the staff are.

A great place to try in Mollymook and highly recommended.

“Tall Poppy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Whilst the setting does little to give away the experience once inside the style and ambience cannot be denied! We had breakfast , afternoon tea and dinner here all on the one day- not that the area doesn't offer choice but simply because the place has so much to offer.
Staff on all occassions were very helpful, professional and engaged. Breakfast was limited but satisfying and variations were possible.
Dinner was the highlight with a modern menu of shared grazing. Adam was helpful and knowledgeable- a consumate professional. The quail was juicy, perfectly prepared and accompanied by a delectable combination of skilfully combined salad flavours. The beef rib was generous and tasty as was the pork belly. We squeezed in the chocolate plate - yum! The wine list is good!
Well done Tallwood, in an area with the likes of Bannisters and St Isadores you are offering an equally excellent dining experience!

“Exceptional!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Read the reviews on here and thought we should give this place a try. So glad we did. Tallwood is exceptional! Spectacular food full of flavour. We loved the share philosophy as its a great way to sample the excellent food and menu that this restaurant has on offer. We had the bbq Clarence River octopus, chilli, lemon the mussels verjuice dill butter which is absolutely to die for and the pressed half duck green peppercorns pickled cucumber. Tallwood has Great food, Great service at a reasonable price. We'll be back again for sure!!! Highly recommended!
