Wayne Wager – Waves Restaurant
Born in the UK, I served my apprenticeship at “The Cornish Range” in Mousehole, where I worked my way up to senior sous chef. This was a highly regarded establishment at the time, winning 3 AA Rosettes (equivalent to Chef Hat Awards). The Cornish Range focused on local produce and letting the product speak for itself, letting the natural flavours shine through.
Now opening Waves, my first restaurant, I intend carrying on the very philosophy I was taught from my original mentor Keith Terry, using and highlighting the best produce available.
From local lamb to Kobe Wagyu and locally sourced seafood, the goal is to give my guests the best possible “fine dining” experience in a relaxed casual setting.
Opening Waves has been a long journey for myself and my business partners and we know we have some big boots to fill following the success that Zanzibar Cafe had. We offer an à la carte menu with the 4-5-3 (4 entrée’s, 5 mains and 3 deserts) system which allows me the flexibility to change the menu every 5-6 weeks enabling us to keep it fresh and seasonal.
Ideally, my aim is to win a Chef Hat award, but in the same instance I will be keeping the menu at an affordable price for guests and locals alike. I believe supporting and accommodating locals is as, or more important, than catering predominantly to the tourists.
Waves Restaurant is open Wednesday – Saturday 5.30pm – 9.00pm
Lunch bookings on other days by request – Phone (02) 6495 3636

Mimosa Wines & Drystone Restaurant
The seven acre Mimosa vineyard has been established since initial plantings in 1999. Glenn appreciated the challenges involved with growing grapes in this fickle maritime climate and especially selected Chambourcin, Verdelho, Tempranillo and the ultra premium Spanish white Albarino for their compatibility with the terroir and lifestyle of this unique area.
