Located in Wollongong on the NSW South Coast, we are an award winning fine dining restaurant and have been awarded a hat by the SMH Good Food Guide every year since 2005.

The 2015 review of Caveau in the Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide was a knock out! Here it is in full:

"There’s nothing small town about this Wollongong find. It’s strictly A game from the start. It feels formal despite the polka dot chairs and the Kelly Wearstler-esque plate displays, and the service is all fine-dine shine, but the experience starts and ends with the well-priced degustation menu. Seven courses with matching wine from the tidy by-the-glass list showcase chef Peter Sheppard’s masterful blending of classic French-inspired techniques with local produce. The beauty is the balance. Seasonally sourced courses include pork terrine with little jewel-like cubes of abalone jelly and the zing of horseradish, or fillet of veal with the savour of sweetbreads and lardons. And props to the tiny sage gnocchi that is snuggled alongside the roasted breast and confit leg of duck. Fittingly, the plates are carefully proportioned to feel generoius without being excessive – this is exquisite food." - AGT
