Autumn is with us
As cooler days arrive we see the joy of autumn harvest - so many seasonal options to choose from! Figs are in season till the end of April (maybe a few in May ;) ).
May sees eggplant reach their peak, mushrooms are everywhere and bright pomegranate remind us why we love this season. And don't forget, the chestnuts have started falling.
The unctuous eggplant is underrated - we love it with creamy burrata or enveloping buffalo mozarella and tomatoes in a delicious parmigiana. We've brought in savoury porcini mushrooms for a velvety smooth vellutata soup and a creamy warming risotto.
Pomegranates sparkle on our wagyu bresaola, adorn the risotto and offset the rich chocolate in our vegan and dairy free tart.

The Romesco pizza is a meeting of spanish and Italian, with romesco sauce (capsicum and tomato pesto with a bit of spice), caramelised onion, gorgonzola cheese, a dash of chili flakes, fresh rocket and balsamic glaze. Vegetarian delight! You can add some prosciutto but it's oh so good as is.
And our star for May? Pizza Melanzane. This little beauty has eggplant as the hero, along with feta, pistachio, fresh pomegranate and mint. You have the option for some sweet and tender lamb to be added and either way the tastes are amazing.
Try them - you'll be delighted!

Castagne Day 2022
Castagne Day? It's a celebration of Chestnuts in Italy. No specific date, but every town has a Castagne Day at the markets or in the piazza during chestnut season. So why not in Bundanoon?
Our Castagne Day will be Sunday May 22nd from 3pm.
We'll be roasting chestnuts and selling them in traditional paper cones, along with wine, beer and soft drinks from 3pm till 6pm. Then we move indoors (remember those chilly autumn evenings?) and host a set price dinner that celebrates chestnuts - entrees, mains and desserts. Book a table and select two courses, along with 2 glasses of wine or beer for just $60 per person.
Our Regional Nights are in full swing for 2022.
You can book online using the button below, or call the restaurant to make a booking directly.
