Lunch and dinner are both available at Gunyah Hotel in Belmont, and if you’re feeling fancy, why not start with oysters? Have them natural with a little douse of lemon or with smoked bacon and a homemade kilpatrick sauce. Following on, the burgers at Gunyah Hotel Belmont should not be missed, particularly the Wagyu beef burger that’s as succulent as they come. Also good is the lamb shank slow-braised in red wine jus served with creamy sweet potato mash and veggies. There’s plenty more to savour, of course, and we find everything tastes that bit better with uninterrupted views of the sea with a cold cocktail in hand. All of which you’ll find ready and waiting at this Belmont gem.
