You're guaranteed to pause at least once during your meal to identify the instrumental song being piped through the restaurant. (It was Clint Mansell's "Requiem for a Dream" that caught us.) But there will be little confusion over the quality of Peter Sheppard's food. This fine-dining, French-leaning restaurant is Wollongong's most awarded, and it's a slick operation. Service is prompt, polite, informed and in harmony with the sophisticated dishes being served (the kitchen preference is for the seven-course dégustation). Roasted pumpkin agnolotti with parmesan powder, pumpkin foam and a rosemary beurre noisette is buttery yet light. Roasted lobster tail with veal sweetbreads, parsnips and smoky speck is another Instagram-perfect dish. Finish with the blue cheese mousse and goat's cheese with baby beets, figs and honeycomb and add in the well-priced wine list and you can see why Caveau continues to impress.
