A really romantic setting next to the water. Food was good, we had the fish and steak and both was cooked well and tasty. However, we were placed in the corner and it was a quiet night, so getting the staff's attention was quite difficult.

Yummy food and lovely location by the river. Will definitely be back again soon.

Lots of empty tables when we arrived but we could only get a booking for 8.30pm. Flickering lights made me feel a bit seasick. Beyond those minor gripes, a very solid meal, would return.

The ONLY issue was the time between courses we had a 6 course set menu and it dragged over 2.5 hours by the time we completed desert it was way too long.

Great food, lovely view and presentation. The service was a little slow/inattentive (had to ask for water refill 3 times), but overall, a positive experience. Would recommend the banquet menu because it's a great value and all the chef's choices were delicious.

Great view and beautiful decor. Food was tasty and the main course portions were huge. Unfortunately they had run out of oysters by the time we ordered at 1:30-2pm which was a little disappointing. Overall very nice lunch stop on the was back to Sydney.

This restaurant is in a lovely location. The view and the setting is idyllic. The food is very creative at times and a bit erratic other times. However, overall it's a great experience. The manchego 'dessert' is delicious and the squid crisps as well as the tradito of ocean trout are a must order.

1st round of drinks came out with the main meal, took 20mins to get a draught beer. 3 of the 4 meals were terrible The lighting kept flickering, consistently thought it was last call and we should leave. Wouldn't recommend this place at all. Great location......pity!

About Wharf Rd. Restaurant & Bar

Get out of town The days when cities were the only place you could get a gourmet meal in Australia are well and truly over. The regional food scene across the country, and especially in NSW, is experiencing a boom with restaurants celebrating locally sourced produce popping up all over the place. Wharf Rd. is a perfect case in point. Owned and operated by chef David Campbell and partner Nicole (who won over Sydneysiders with the popular café The Book Kitchen in Surry Hills), this charming restaurant is all about freshness and alone is reason enough to visit Nowra. The menu is constantly changing and offers small plates (such as ceviche salad of blackfish on a salt brick) and large plates (like pulled pork shoulder with pumpkin, pearl barley and aji panca) and “bits on the side” that include duck fat potatoes and heirloom tomato salad. However, the best option is the banquet menu that comes with either five or nine courses. It means leaving the food choices up to the chef – but trust us; you’ll be in very safe hands. Best dish: six hour wood fired, milk-fed lamb
