If you’re driving along the New South Wales coastline and looking to stay in the Eurobodalla region, it’s a must to dine in at the beautiful Mimosa Wines restaurant. Expect to travel less than a 1 1/2 hours drive from either Bateman’s Bay, Moruya or Narooma to the Mimosa winery, or from the other direction, similar drive times from Merimbula, Tathra or Bega.
On the recommendation of a trusted local, a stop at the Mimosa winery was on the cards – and boy, what a delicious feast it was! Despite being the middle of winter and the vineyards not in full bloom at this time of the year, this restaurant still has an amazing menu to appreciate.
Plus, their outdoor verandah has a spectacular view year-round, overlooking mountain ranges and their in-house winery.
With small or large plated meals on the lunch menu, in addition to their ‘specials’ board, you won’t be disappointed at the choices available. Gluten-free or vegetarian dietary requirements can also be catered for too.
Around the table, we tried Barramundi pan-fried, garlic kipfler potatoes, asparagus, pickled cucumber and blue swimmer crab butter (AU$36)
Pork belly slow cooked (10-hours), miso potatoes, bok choy, fig jam, pickled fennel, pomegranate, port & orange glaze (AU$38)
Pan-fried kingfish with ragout of confit baby octopus & parmesan tuille (AU$39)
Local eden mussels ‘Cambodian style’, yellow creamy coconut sauce, jasmine rice and peanuts (AU$34)
I must admit, I had food envy all around. The clear favourite was the pork belly, however the mussels had Asian fragrances wafting right under your nose and also smelt too good to refuse.
For anyone travelling in the area, visiting Mimosa Wines is a must. It’s a great venue for a family or friends gathering, and a place to simply relax with an epic view surrounding.
Enjoy the options of indoor or outdoor dining and immerse yourself with delicious food, beautiful wines and of course, in great company. The staff here are excellent too, very friendly and accommodating throughout our visit. I’d highly recommend you call ahead to book a table and request for outdoor seating (if preferred). Mimosa Wines is open for lunch Thursdays to Sundays from 12-2pm, but at times, they may be closed for private functions such as weddings and the like.
For some strange reason, our GPS was struggling to find this address. If you’re looking for Mimosa Wines, do search for the address under Tathra, Murrah or Bermagui (bordering suburbs) if you have any troubles, which should still get you to this beautiful restaurant.
