This is a little gem of a Resturant in Wollongong. I have visited here twice a year for tthe last 6 years and as to date have never been disappointed. If anything it just gets better and better.

Truly enjoyable experience. Stand outs were the duck egg which was thick and glutenous offset by pastrami and potato. The partridge and the accompanying rissole also something I really enjoyed. Great service and food in a friendly atmosphere. Thank you

We had the degustation on a Thursday evening and it was amazing. The standard from the previous chef/owners has definitely been maintained. Lots of interesting, unusual, and delicious local produce. Lovely and efficient staff and very pleasant atmosphere.

We had a private room for 11 people on Saturday night for the tasting menu. Service was great but long intervals between dishes. We all arrived at 630 and the last dish came out around 930. The food was good but bread roll was burnt and a couple of other minor glitches. The waitresses were all friendly and efficient. Also... More

This would be the best fine dining restaurant in the Illawarra, and beyond. You don't just go to eat, you go for the whole package, it's a dining experience. Food that looks like art on a plate, perfectly matched wines, a serene ambiance, and chefs and staff that know their food. Will definitely be returning, time again.

Overall ok experience but a bit too pricey. The degustation menu was nice but not amazing, hence $100+ per head does not seem right. The price may be high because fine dining competition is lacking in Wollongong. Another downside is the venue, which definitely lacks character for a restaurant of this type. Not saying I won't go back but there... More

Incredible food with wonderfully paired wines. Very friendly staff. The degustation took around 3 hours for us so keep that in mind before booking a late sitting.

It had been several years since we last had dinner at Caveau. It was then very good but also very expensive.. Having a special occasion and hearing that it was under new management we thought it was worth a revisit. We were not dissapointed. The standard degustation meal was exquisite. Each course was cooked and presented to perfection and although... More

Caveau has made its reputation on its 7 course tasting menu and it does not disappoint. Each course is described as it is brought to your table which does help in appreciating the thought behind it, and the flavour palette. Presentation is impressive, service attentive and the food delicious. Although the portions are small by the end you will feel... More
