What a fantastic evening of food an wine. Cocktails overlooking the river and freshly shucked oysters were amazing. The degustation banquet was well and truly worth it. The food was flavored nicely and we especially enjoyed the beef and the squid and blood sausage, and the fish carpaccio. They have a great wine selection and make a fantastic mojito! Staff were knowledgable about the menu and the service was great. Our only letdown was we would have liked.clean plates for each of the courses but apart from that it was sensational

When you walk into Wharf Rd you are welcomed by polite staff and guided through the white restaurant with very chic furnishings. The lights above the table are brilliant and effective as is the fireplace with sheepskin surrounds. Very cool. Our waiters were knowledgeable and attentive. The wines we chose were lovely, Hunky Dory Sav Blanc and the Silos Squid Ink Shiraz which has always been a local favourite.
We tried the degustation and were so looking forward to it after eating at Hungry Duck many times. We were sadlt disappointed. The portion size were very small and my partner and I left hungry. 1st course consisted of 2 mouthfuls of the flathead ceviche, 2nd course was 4 bits of aspargus to share, 3rd course was the slow cooked egg salad, this was a very tasty dish. We thought we were getting somehwere here. 4th course was the Squid with blood sausage which was ever so tasty but left us wanting more. 5th course was the stand out of kingfish, though the waitress poured the seafood broth all over the crispy garnish of the dish so then when going to eat it became soggy and wet, was shame as it wouldve been a brilliant texture. 6th course which I was awaiting with baited breath just didnt deliver unfortunately. The lamb was overcooked on parts and the duck fat potatoes were cold, hard and chewy. It was the worst course we had. The degustation didnt include dessert so we decided to have this as we were starving, I had the hummingbird cake which was an absolute stand out, this they should be very proud of. I really wanted this experience to be right on the money though we left hungry and disappointed as nothing wowed us. I like the concept, the idea and maybe as there was a table of 30 booked also things were a little hectic? Thank you, but just wish it delivered us more.

With the expense of meals I expected a tablecloth and silver service. Tables are bare. There are linen napkins and no salt and pepper shakers. The menu wasn't easy to understand. A gap in the menu is the only indication of which was an entree or main. Choose carefully, as most prices for mains include nothing but your meal of meat or fish plus a garnish.Servings are small, and most are over $30 for the main, then pay extra for a serving of salad or vegetable - most with interesting ingredients, and overdone with flowers. Bread was two small slices accompanied by butter or margarine roughly placed on a small dish.My whole snapper was delicious but the fish had not been scaled properly. Waitresses were pleasant and helpful. A set price for desserts gave about four choices.

Top spot on the Shoalhaven River. At last, someone with vision has given this beautiful area what it needs, a smart, well run contemporary restaurant. I enjoyed lunch with two friends on a glorious sunny day with a view of the river. Couldn't resist the potatoes roasted in duck fat; delicious! Just loved my meal, chose the special of the day with a salad to balance the carbs in the potatoes! Whose counting calories, anyway? It was all too delicious........ Desert was on the small side, I thought they could have been more generous. The restaurant has a casual, but elegant ambiance, lots of white on white, with cleverly suspended lights over the tables. There is a private dining room with a view into the cold room and the meat, lovely space, probably not the place for vegetarians in here!
