3one7 on High Bar + Cafe
Part of a lakeside complex comprising apartment-style accommodation and a health retreat with views over Lake Nagambie, this modern cafe-style restaurant offers casual dining under market umbrellas in a courtyard – ideal for leisurely lunches. There are also candlelit tables inside for more intimate dinners. The modern Australian menu has Mediterranean and sometimes Asian influences with dishes such as bruschetta topped with mild chilli pancetta, or ricotta, basil and baby spinach served with pan-fried cherry tomatoes and pine-nut butter. The local flame-grilled steaks are recommended, as is any duck dish – perhaps roasted breast with aromatic honey jus. Dessert might be kaffir lime panna cotta with berry soup and pistachio biscotti.
