We’ve been looking forward to this for some time now and are absolutely delighted to share our new, exciting Bellini’s Bar & Restaurant menu with you! Created specially with our guests in mind, the recipes are a fusion of European and traditional flavours. They will be available from our re-launch on October 25, 2013, so drop in for a taste. Relax and enjoy an impromptu light bite, casual dinner and cocktail, or celebrate a special occasion in our contemporary Cork bar and restaurant.
Head Chef Brendan Brosnan and Executive Chef Gerry Allen worked tirelessly this year to collectively develop the new menu, which features locally sourced, fresh, and seasonal ingredients. They’ve assembled an award winning team of chefs to ensure consistent quality as The Maryborough endeavors to offer our finest each and every meal.
What are we serving, you might ask. All things exquisite.
