Ceto Restaurant, Ulladulla (review)

Ulladulla is now on the food map. Before visitors would go to Banister’s (Mollymook) or take a small trip to Cupitt’s Winery. But now both locals and visitors can take in the stunning view of the harbor whilst enjoying top notch food at Ceto Restaurant. I cannot wait to go back.

THE “PEOPLES VERDICT”

Ceto is getting well deserved rave reviews.

¬

IT’S REVIEW TIME!

Exceptional food, amazing view and proficient service- what a combo! Ceto Bar and Restaurant is less than a year old,  in the popular holiday destination- Mollymook/Ulladulla and already is booked out most Fridays and Saturdays. I was looking forward to the dinner as the head chef had a resume to impress- Quay, Est, Rick Stein to name a few, Better still I was not let down!

¬

To start, Mr FYF¬†had the¬†pork belly. Who doesn’t order pork belly when its on the menu! The cooking process ensured that¬†the fat had being rendered away. Only suggestion would be to¬†improve the crackling with more crackle. But fear not, I would order this dish again!

Pork Belly¬ Berkshire Pork belly, Scallops, Cauliflower, Apple, Rosemary

¬

So, jealous as I was of Mr FYF ordering the pork belly (Yes, I kind of insisted he ordered it; so I could try), my tempura zucchini flowers were superb. A light tempura batter, delicious goats cheese and the most important thing- the zucchini’s were cooked to perfection

tempura zucchini¬ Goats Chevre Stuffed Zucchini Flowers, Beetroot, Black Olives, Violet Potatoes, Hazelnut

¬

To the Mains! There was a slight delay of 45mins however the restaurant was quite busy. Mr FYF opted for the barramundi. Considering it was an ocean side town, not ordering seafood would be a sin.  It was cooked beautifully- flakey and moist with mouth watering natural flavours. The pickled onions were an added bonus.

Barramundi¬ Roasted Barramundi, Paris Mash, Asparagus, Truffle Butter, Pickled Onion

¬

I could smell my duck from a mile away. A cinnamon stick was left burning on my plate to ensure both smell and sight was incorporated into the taste. Confit duck and cherries- what a classic combo; there is a reason why it had lasted throughout the years.

duck with cherries¬ Roast Duck Breast, Confit Leg, Heirloom Carrots, Sour Cherry Sauce, Cinnamon

¬

Overall what a sensational dinner. I only wished I didn’t have a late lunch and then I could¬†have indulged in their desserts.¬ Oh, well means I’ll have to go back at the end of year.


THE LOCALE, DECOR AND VIBE:

I would highly recommend requesting to be seated upstairs- to take advantage of the spectacular view. A window seat is a must! It can be a little hard to find, make sure you walk to the end of the walkway and volia; its their in corner

¬

LETS TALK PEOPLE POWER:

Service attentive and friendly. The head waitress knew the details of the wine list which helped to narrow down a good bottle to share (yes only one this time)

¬

NOM NOM NOM:

The zucchini flowers; delish

¬

WOW FACTOR:

The view. This is even better when you watch the sunset over the stunning harbour

¬

FROWN FACTOR:

The delay on our mains (45mins), however this was rectified when an apology was issued whilst serving: its always better when they acknowledge the delay.
