Bistro Molines delivers authentic French provincial cuisine, combining locally sourced Australian ingredients with traditional French flavours. Enjoy a 3-course a la carte menu that indulges you with baked figs filled with gorgonzola wrapped in prosciutto, sautéed fresh farmed snails, speck and mushrooms with garlic red wine sauce, or a traditional yoghurt pannacotta with passionfruit jelly and meringue, just to name a few of their mouthwatering dishes.
