Description: Nomad is a cellar door in the city where the food and wine showcase the best local produce grown and raised by Australian farmers, grape growers and wine makers. Nomad's menu draws on the flavours of the Mediterranean using local Australian ingredients to create a dynamic and seasonally driven menu. Nomad opened to wide acclaim in October 2013 by focussing on local growers and produce that is sourced from growers with a philosophy of sustainability. NOMAD was awarded one chefs hat at the 2014 Good Food Awards and was included in the inaugural Australia's Top 100 Restaurants.

Really enjoyed this. The waitress was great suggesting to ask one appetizer, one first and one second and to share them all. The food was tasty and amazingly presented. An interesting wine selection. And an Incredible bar with stunning cocktails. Definitely a place to go.
Consider prices are according to the offer...

A group of 4 of us decided to lunch here on a weekday - our reservations were handled well & we had a nice corner table. Wait staff were friendly & knowledgeable advising us how the menu worked & made some good suggestions. Overall we were made to feel welcome.

We ordered zuchini flowers, hummus, cerviche, eggplant as starters with the trout & lamb neck as mains & a side order of spiced cauliflower. We shared our dishes & found the quantities sufficient for lunch. All dishes were beautifully prepared & delicious. Standouts were the hummus & lamb. The spiced cauliflower was sensational. The kitchen obviously knows what they are doing - the Mediterranean flavours were updated to be fresh & light yet retaining the flavours. The drink menu offers a good range of non alcoholic sodas & cocktails. The wine list is unusual with a nice selection from boutique wineries not usually found in the bottle store.

The restaurant is large & about half filled for lunch. There is no special lunch menu & both lunch & dinner menus are the same. Management should perhaps consider offering a special priced lunch menu as spending $80+ for lunch isn’t something one would spend on a normal day other than for a special ocassions. I for one would definitely dine here on a frequent basis if prices at lunch were adjusted!

I was invited to NOMAD and had no previous knowledge of the restaurant. Just so so impressed and cant wait to return. The hommus, the cauliflower, the haloumi were all just excellent - but it was the ceviche kingfish that was just out of this world. Great service - allowing us to sip wines to confirm which we preferred - was so appreciated.
So pleased I have been introduced to NOMAD...just planning when I can come back and try the rest of the menu!

The restaurant looks quite pretty and interesting both from the outside and inside. But starting from the menu, you can realise that everything is just a show off. Plates to share which have nothing in common between one another, no ideas, no explanations and nothing to crave: a pure messy list of dishes. We tried the homemade pickles, which was the only good thing, then a charcuterie plate (ham quite as the one you can buy at a convenience store) and a horrible chicken with yoghurt and harissa. I really cannot understand why this place is so overrated. Plus, the staff is totally unfriendly, and the only tables you can book on dimmi are the ones at the window. A big no for me.

Large, open restaurant. Went for lunch when it was only one third full. Music was a bit loud for us. Lunch time service timing was spot on. We came as a couple but I feel this restaurant would have suited us better with a group of our friends.
The food was very good overall. Really enjoyed the marron on couscous with cuttlefish ink sauce and the spatchcock dishes. The Zuchinni flowers with honey was not to our liking though. Chocolate creme dessert was very nice once we set aside the toffee wafer.
I recommend Nomad but be prepared for the 2% surcharge on credit card payments! (Why do so many expensive restaurants (not just Nomad) have c'card surcharges when so many cheap eat restaurants don't?)
