We ate at Tallwood’s on a Friday night and the restaurant was buzzing. The atmosphere is relaxed and happy with an eclectic variety of people eating there. While we found the meals to be OK they were really not outstanding in any way. The dishes are generally served in a progressive manner and shared so we had the Portuguese Fish... More

We dined here after a recommendation from our accommodation hosts. The service and wait staff were fantastic. If anyone is contemplating dining of a Friday, Saturday or Sunday it would be advisable to book. Any other night OK.

Ventured to Tallwood after missing out on a table at Bannisters Pavillon and had a superb dinner. We shared mains of duck and pork neck, accompanied by a not-so-ordinary side of beans. The flavours were lovely, meat was tender and perfectly cooked. We started with oysters and a Portuguese fish cake - both divine. But the star of our first... More

Great meal & experience. Went on a Monday night where it is 'chefs choice ' so you don't know what you're getting till it arrives - really great skill displayed by the chefs and the serving staff were brilliant. Our best dining experience in Mollymook - definitely worth a visit.

I'm a regular here but the last two times I sat outside brunch & lunch and was totally ignored until both times I asked for the menu. Food always good! The staff just don't make eye contact and spraying the table beside you with chemicals should be banned!

Have never encountered such rude staff bar one girl. The amount of attide thrown our way for asking basic questions was out of control. They got the order wrong and forgot all the sides then when we asked how long it would be until they would arrive they said they were too busy. Couldnt believe it to be honest. Will... More
