Tallwood was created from the love of flavoursome food, sharing good times with friends and family and having a sneaky drink or two.

Tallwood is a comfortable and relaxed dining experience where you get to share great food, and we get to bring to life our belief in sustainable practices and community mindfulness.

The south coast has an abundance of amazing produce and strong harmonious relationships with local farmers ensures we keep the distance from paddock to plate to a minimum. My team and I work in partnership with our local suppliers and this is reflected in our seasonally changing menu.

Our food allows you to sample a little of what the south coast has to offer. Sit back, relax, grab a drink and let our staff guide you through our menu. If you can’t choose let us do the work for you.
Share, laugh, enjoy

My husband and I are regulars at Tallwood so it was an easy decision to book for a family dinner, dishes are creative and delicious, wine list is well considered, service is attentive and friendly and a lovely warm atmosphere.

The food and ambience was lovely,
Though some of my drink order kept being forgotten, and a component to my main meal was missing, as two were ordered and they weren’t the same which was disappointing. But they were delicious, could be slightly bigger portions.
But we will be back.
Ella is excellent.

We visited last year and loved it and took my wife's parents last Monday (tellin them it was better than Bannisters where we were staying) but we booked online, so did not know until we got there, that it was a Monday night chefs set menu.
Unfortunately the pork was tough and too tough for our parents, but the other dishes were excellent and the service fantastic.

The pressure was on. Find a memorable dining experience in the Ulladulla area for my partner's birthday. Having no idea, as I'm from Sydney, I asked a friend who is familiar with the area. Tallwood not only came highly recommended but was THE place – 'not to miss', 'to include on your bucket list', 'to visit every time'. / I booked immediately. / Our booking was for outdoor seating – unfortunately, the weather turned out to be a hellish inferno of heat and wind. The restaurant contacted ME to recommend we change our booking to inside – when does this EVER happen?! The first indication that we were really going to enjoy this place. Or at least the staff. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with warmth, seated immediately and attended to. The menu explained, as was the pace – a staggered and shared experience to allow for a mutual enjoyment of each dish. / Starter: Clyde River Oysters 1/2 dozen / From the 'light options' menu we shared: • local raw fish, daily special (was Tuna sashimi style) • portuguese fish cakes, saffron mayonaise • hervey bay scallops, miso butter, daikon pickle • bean tlacoyos, feta, cactus, pickles, corn, avocado • prosciutto, guindilla, peach / From the 'more substantial' menu we shared: crispy prawns, green mango, fragrant herbs, sechuan and tamarind caramel / Wine choice: Stella Bella (Cab, Merlot) / Desert: Chocolate 3 ways with honeycomb and merangue / As promised, the food came staggered to perfection. Just as you finished one mouthwatering dish and contemplated it for a bit, the next appeared. Each building on expectation. The food was fresh and flavorful. Full of texture. Each mouthful a delight. The presentation was beautiful. The wine, outstanding. If you're a chocolate lover, the dessert was to die for. Admittedly, we could have ordered two fewer dishes from the light menu and still have been satisfied. / Total bill was shocking - shockingly fair! / I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Caters well for those with an adventurous palette, which unfortunately counts me out. Wife loved it.

This place encourages sharing of dishes which allows you to sample many of their creative dishes.

Staff were very accommodating to the comfort of their guests.

Be prepared to bring lots of $$.

The service we received was outstanding and coupled with the delicious meals made for a very enjoyable evening. We were all impressed . The corkage fee for byo was a little outrageous though. Would highly recommend to other friends coming to visit.

I love this place. The food was delicious and creative. The service was lovely, professional but not arrogant. We enjoyed our whole night from start to finish. My duck was the dish of the night, Absolutely delicious and the balance of flavours were spot on. Well done Tallwood team, you nailed it!

Dined on Monday “chefs choice” so it is a set menu. Great value for money and includes a glass of wine. Despite the set menu it catered well for food allergies.

Such an amazing eating experience. The food was all beautifully presented with original and interesting combinations of flavours and cultural influences. I highly recommend their oysters with smoked shallot dressing - incredible flavour! The steak was cooked to perfection, beautiful and charred out the outside but melted in your mouth! such a lovely experience visiting Tallwood - a definite must among many great new fine dining restaurants on the South Coast

We have dined at Tallwood Eatery many times and have always been impressed by the quality and variety of the menu and this time was no exception. Table service was timely, friendly and attentive.
The tapas style plate sharing is a highlight of the dining experience and works extremely well for couples and in particular larger groups.
We always recommend it to our B&B guests and without exception they are highly impressed.

Visited with my husband, while we were staying in Mollymook for a weekend away.

Loved it, and totally recommend this place to people in the Ulladulla/Mollymook/Milton area. Even worth the drive, if coming from north batemans bay.

I am lucky enough to have been one of their first customers when they set up shop in Mollymook - now I struggle to get a seat! Totally worth booking ahead; food is amazing, coffee is great and the atmosphere is perfect!
I would happily say it is one of my all time favourite places to eat.

Wonderful luck to get a table on New Years Eve. As I commented to the chef, it was truly one of the most delicious meal I had eaten in a very long time, and that is saying a lot from a customer from Melbourne ( food capital). Every dish was a taste sensation with perfect combinations of flavours.
My city neighbor had eaten at Bannisters earlier in the year, without a rave reviews. Shall send her to Tallwood
