We always love eating at Kouzina. The staff are always fantastic and the food is amazing. I love the feel of the gravel under my feet, the beautiful outdoor lighting and the authentic Greek feel. Kouzina gives me a little Greek Islands fix, whenever I am craving some Europe time.

A great venue to meet friends, a wide choice of drinks and meals to suit different tastes, and the background noise level didn't limit the table conversation.

About the restaurant
Dulcie's is a reimagined family cottage turned restaurant bar. The menu consists of a small selection of tasty burgers, oysters, seasonal cocktails, delicious wine, and friendly chat. Dulcie’s has a long bar to sit at, a beer garden to hang in, a fireplace to warm up next to. All of our menus consider local produce and the atmosphere we aim to create is cosy, fun and comfortable. Think cool grandma crossed with cheeky grandpa vibes.

Honestly, the dinner was fantastic. The food was great. The drinks were delicious and the atmosphere was exactly what we wanted on a cold winter night. Music was awesome not too loud and the best part was the chocolate brownie and ice cream for dessert Definitely would recommend

Bundanoon
About the restaurant
Our restaurant offers a selection of quality meals prepared with the best produce available. Lunch is available Friday to Sunday and dinner Wednesday to Monday. On Tuesday the bistro is closed, woodfire pizza is served in the Brigadoon Bar. In March 2022 we revamped the dining space and renovated to include a new kitchen. At the same time a new Head Chef joined our team. Regulars love the new menus which change almost daily. Menu options are available for larger parties with the group menus proving very popular in the private dining room as well as the restaurant. When we finally see some sun the spacious beer garden offers other possibilities.

Situated halfway between Sydney and Canberra the Bundanoon Hotel is ideally situated for friends, family or business gatherings and with 58 rooms available there's no need to drive home after a great night.
