Zana’s @ Montville

If the food doesn’t take you away at this quaint restaurant wedged amongst the Mount Dandenongs of the Sunshine Coast hinterland, you could take the quick route back to Mooloolaba… by jumping off the cliff.

That’s an extreme over reaction, but exactly what I wanted to do when I was presented the vegetarian option of ratatouille in an off-the-shelf tart shell. Double lime doesn’t quite work in the acidic dressing glass noodles but fine as a glaze on the duck shanks.

So it’s a bit of hit and miss menu for an intimate wedding reception, but mains of Woman’s Weekly classics such as roasted lamb rack crusted with pulsed almond, herbs and apricot and a beef rib fillet cooked to order wrapped in bacon topped with a tasty mushroom ragout more than makes up for the disappointment. Tasty enough to make a safe, sane and slow decent back to the coast.

3 / 5 yums!
Where? 171 Main St, Montville, QLD
