We have have dined at mimosa winery many times and the standard stays the same. Always amazing! Fantastic ambience with wonderful service coupled with delicious and delicately presented food. We have never been disappointed over the 7 years that we have frequented the winery.

About the restaurant
WE AIN'T NONNA'S! It's a simple as that. We love and appreciate all the Nonna's out there and the beautiful food they create. We don't want to compete with your Nonna's cooking, so we won't.

This is our take on home style Italian cooking.

About the restaurant
Rowlee is a place for shared celebration set against the vines.

A place where we revel in the region’s winemaking roots and bountiful produce.

We thrive on breaking down borders and bringing people together through an informal, intimate food and drinks culture that is curious about the world we live in — it calls for slowness and connection, inspiring conversation, wanderlust, and laughter.

Here you can enjoy divine communal share-style dishes, delicious drinks, generous hospitality, big views, and cosy corners. Where slow, leisurely hours under the sun can transform into a night-time celebration.

Pull up a seat at one of the outdoor tables to gather with friends around generous sharing plates, or head inside to enjoy swish sips and snacks at the bar. Discover gorgeous gardens, luxurious interiors, and a relaxed ambience with gracious hosts and good vibes.

About the restaurant
No Bones is the brainchild of Tahlia, Yasmina and Laurie. In an attempt to change the way we think about what we put in our mouths, we opened our doors in April 2018 with a vision of bringing meat eaters and vegans together over good plant-based food. With each passing year, No Bones has evolved, driven by the determination to do better for both our community and the environment.

We are part of a plant-based movement and invite you to join us on our expedition to save the Earth one Brussels sprout at a time.

We tried the Tasting Plate option and soooo glad we did! Lots of new dishes to try and experience, that we might otherwise have missed out on. Great service, awesome food, and cocktails. Special mention to the chocolate parfait dessert which I haven’t stopped thinking about since last night haha! The best ever!

About the restaurant
Il Toscano means “The Tuscan”, and is a perfect representation of everything I am, and all that I love about my home land in Italy.

My name’s Matteo – head pasta maker, chef and owner of il Toscano. I was born and raised in the countryside of Tuscany, and although I’ve now lived in Australia for over 9 years, my passion for all things Italian has never been stronger.

Nor has my passion for sharing it with Australia and the Central Coast. I noticed that while there are a lot of outlets serving Italian food up here, they’re largely not hitting the mark when it comes to quality, authenticity and traditional local Tuscan food.

Our mission is to bring people together for an amazing Italian experience with good food, wine and good times and share with you my strong passion and our local traditional cuisine as if you were in Tuscany.

My wife Laura and I became so tired of being disappointed every time we ordered food out, that we decided to take matters into our own hands.

Even though i am a local, this was my first visit. Absolutely loved it. I will be back. I've left a review on the local Foodie Facebook page. I have the mushroom pasta and it was delicious.
