We had a two night gourmet getaway at spicers tamarind that included dinner here. The degustation was inventive and delicious. We often find that restaurants choice style over substance. However we were both satisfied with the serving sizes. The flavour combinations were amazing and the...More

A special birthday was celebrated here. An elegant verandah setting in country. We had the tasting menu. It was spectacular in presentation and subtle tastes. Each course was a delight with refreshing pauses. I cannot praise this lunch too highly.

Welcome to The Long Apron The signature restaurant of Montville’s picturesque Spicers Clovelly Estate. The Long Apron is a dining experience that insists on a lengthy stay. Our tasting menu doesn’t change every season but when the time is right. It is an ‘organic menu’ that adjusts to the changes constantly happening around us and highlights the best of our region, seasonal European inspired dishes, which blend classic techniques and the finest local produce with exquisite results. Our A La Carte menu offers a relaxed, fresh and zesty dining experience taking from dishes from the signature degustation. Our enthusiastic kitchen team are continuing to showcase the best of the Sunshine Coast’s stunning produce. We source our produce from our local growers, catchers, farmers and makers, some of which are providing bespoke ingredients for both ‘The Long Apron’ menus. The property’s garden and wild bee hives add to our sustainability commitment and emphasis on fresh and local.
