Great setting, average food, friendly but slow service. Measured against the total MONA experience, this was the only letdown.

This up-market restaurant offers an interesting menu, excellent quality food & beverages, & usually provides good service (although service was slow during our recent experience due to staff absences from the kitchen & waiting staff numbers).

Ate here with a large business group recently. The outlook is just so lovely, perched high up looking out over the river. We had a set menu with alternate drop. The food was great, fresh, interesting and beautifully presented. The wine options were fantastic. Would love to come back and explore the menu a little further.

We visited The Source during our stay at MONA Pavillions. What an excellent evening we had. The greeting was warm and friendly as we entered the stylishly modern restaurant. The waiter and sommelier instantly made us comfortable and we enjoyed a local brew whilst perusing the menu. The gruyere soufflé was stunning followed by wagyu beef and delicious pork for... More

Friends had told us to have lunch at Dource and they were not wrong! We expected the food to be good because verything else in MONA had been so well done. However it was even more interesting than I expected. The oysters were superb and we particularly liked the Beef Tataki. Highly recommended..

We arrived without booking for a very early dinner...such is life with a 5 year old. Considering this, the staff were very accommodating considering this is a fine dining establishment. The food was sensational with local fresh produce and cooked perfection. Highly recommend the: Northfolk Oysters Eye fillet with roasted beets, black quinoa, lentils and red wine vinaigrette Blue-eye trevalla,... More
