Description: Welcome to The Long Apron The signature restaurant of Montville’s picturesque Spicers Clovelly Estate. The Long Apron is a dining experience that insists on a lengthy stay. Our tasting menu doesn’t change every season but when the time is right. It is an ‘organic menu’ that adjusts to the changes constantly happening around us and highlights the best of our region, seasonal European inspired dishes, which blend classic techniques and the finest local produce with exquisite results. Our A La Carte menu offers a relaxed, fresh and zesty dining experience taking from dishes from the signature degustation. Our enthusiastic kitchen team are continuing to showcase the best of the Sunshine Coast’s stunning produce. We source our produce from our local growers, catchers, farmers and makers, some of which are providing bespoke ingredients for both ‘The Long Apron’ menus. The property’s garden and wild bee hives add to our sustainability commitment and emphasis on fresh and local.

The view from the restaurant is stunning. The food was delicious, the presentation of the food was just wonderful and the menu was excellent. The service was unbelievably good - efficient, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The overall experience was excellent.

I took my parents here for my dads 82nd birthday and from the moment we stepped out of the car, the staff made his lunch super special! The food and service was absolutely amazing with nothing left on any of our tasting plates. I cannot wait to go back! Thank you all so much...one that Dad will not forget. X

The degustation lunch menu here is very creative. The flavours were adventurous and some of them amazing. The fish course did not really work for either of us - but the rest of the menu was beautiful and had some exceptional items (the red claw yabby and the suckling pork were amazing). There are lots of little in-between courses in the degustation and the edible crostini tree at the beginning is a beauty to behold. The service is relaxed and it is an incredibly relaxing experience to eat this quality food on the calm, peaceful terrace, taking in the mountain air.

The Long Apron is a destination restaurant, set on the Sunshine Coast hinterland in Montville. The staff are attentive and welcoming, the views are fantastic and the food is excellent.

We were there for a birthday celebration and had the winter tasting menu. One person is vegan but there was no problem adjusting the vegetarian tasting menu for vegan. The others all had the standard tasting menu..

Everything at The Long Apron is picture perfect. We were lucky to be there on a beautiful sunny winter's day,and the terrace was the perfect place to enjoy a delicious long lunch. There is so much attention to detail on each plate,and the staff are knowledgeable about all the dishes. they were happy to answer all questions and they had a complete focus on ensuring we all had a memorable meal.

The Long Apron is an unforgettable fine dining experience.
