    Food was good. The entrees are very substantial. We didn’t eat a main course after sharing a tasting plate and couple of appetisers. Stand out dish was grilled sardines. Outstanding. Local Shiraz was excellent. Server was thoughtful and polite and the setting is tranquil and welcoming.

    The food was delicious and so well presented. Service ,professional and friendly. Dining outside under the gnarled gum tree on a balmy summer evening with a happy family who could ask for anything better.

    5 course tasting menu is $100 per head, including matched wines. It’s always excellent and represents reasonably good value. Will knows his wine so the wine list is fantastic to.

    Excellent food, really happy with gluten free options. The restaurant needs a good clean from windows through to light fittings. I loved seeing their home made baked goods on the counter - made my mouth water, but wished they were under a glass cabinet-too exposed for insects and dust. The menu needs to be updated because some things were not available that night.

    Great food but the restaurant itself could do with a refresh. It’s starting to feel more like a run of the mill restaurant which doesn’t reflect the quality of the food.

    My husband really loved the lamb rump as it was generous, tasty and tender. My seafood spaghetti was nice but not the best I’ve had but the setting was wonderful, sitting outside in the shade of a gnarly old gum tree with good wine and great weather.

About the restaurant

Surf´s up What better than a lovely seaside luncheon? Napona makes the most out of the crisp ocean air and the sunny surrounds to provide a fancy dining experience. If you´re down at Ocean Grove, this place is not to be missed. The atmosphere is gorgeous, with a well-lit interior and a big deck to sit on outside. Come over for breakfast, lunch or dinner and experience the unique blend of Asian and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. We just loved seeing the likes of Italian spaghetti marinara and Chinese pork belly side by side on the menu. If you´re making the trip, you may as well go all out and order the degustation menu. Trust us, as soon as you´ve laid eyes on this amazing five-course menu, you´ll have no choice but to treat yourself. Locally caught fresh fish is the highlight, and the matching wines will take you through an elegant selection from both home and abroad. Happy beach-goers wait no more; ride that wave all the way to Napona. Best dish: 5-course degustation menu
