Absolutely delightful

This was honestly one of the best meals of my life.

Gunyah is raised off the ground and set amongst the trees. The restaurant walls were retracted and were seated facing out, so close we could almost touch the trees. You can hear the sounds of the bush and, if lucky, see the wildlife.

The menu is set depending upon the day, however they will happily cater to any dietary requirement (advise on booking). Some dishes are accidentally vegan (bread and soup), some were small modifications to the set menu (tomato tartare), and some were something completely different (vegetable curry). In any case, the vegan changes clearly had proper thought put into them and I was never left feeling ripped off.

The staff were prompt, friendly, warm, and attentive.

Gunya is on the pricey side (set menu $70/pp) but the food, location, and service made it worth every penny.

Pros: Beautiful location, Excellent food, Great service

Cons: Bookings essential, Set menu, Pricey

Special occasion treat

I was looking for a nice (slightly fancy) restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I had been to Gunyah once before (before I went vegan) and had a great time. I also had seen a TripAdvisor review saying they accommodated to dietary requirements. They usually do a set 3 course menu that changes daily (omni). I sent them an email asking if they can accomodate for 2 vegans and a pescatarian. They replied saying it’s no problem. We had a great time and the people at the restaurant were so friendly and attentive, always asking if everything’s okay. They asked us for feedback on the vegan menu which we said we loved. I learned later on that it was their first weekend with new head chef Demelza Donohoo and an entirely new menu. We started with an amuse-bouche which was the same for everyone (happens to be vegan) of teriyaki style mushroom skewers which was so “meaty” with a creamy dip. Next, everyone got a tuna tartare and at first I was confused because it seemed like they had given us the same dish. Turns out ours was made of tomatoes and smoked eggplant with a sesame Japanese style dressing. For mains, we had a vegetable curry which was so flavourful with some coconut rice. Before desserts came out, we were given petit four of cashew freeze dried raspberry chocolates (again the whole restaurant got the same thing and happens to be vegan). Dessert was the highlight of our night. A vegan cheesecake with a fresh raspberry sorbet. This was the best cheesecake I’ve ever had (even compared to “real” cheesecakes!). Overall it was a fantastic vegan dining experience where the vegan menu was clearly well designed and not an afterthought. We also loved that they had several dishes which were already vegan being served in the restaurant. With not many fine dining choices in the area, this place is a gem. On top of that the dining room is so beautifully decorated and very cozy in the winter. And if you’re looking for a real treat, I recommend giving their glamping tents a go!

Pros: Well designed vegan menu , Friendly staff, Beautiful restaurant

Cons: Booking essential, Closed during winter
