Dip your feet in the waters at Boston Bay before stopping in at Del Giorno’s to fill up – whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Boasting an incredible location right on the foreshore, the restaurant offers an extensive array of freshly caught seafood, served up with genuine love and experience.
In 2004 Owners, Kris and Brenda Bunder, purchased Del Giorno’s, taking the existing cafe up a notch by providing a restaurant dining experience. Kris’ 31 years experience as a chef positioned him with more than enough knowledge to make this venture his own.
Head Chef, Kadek Pantiayasa, hails from the island of Bali in Indonesia, and his passion for seafood and experimentation with pan-Asian, Italian and Australian fusion is reflected in Del Giorno’s extensive menu. The dedication to local, fresh produce can’t be overstated. The menu caters to all sorts of tastes and needs – with options that you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere – while maintaining support of local suppliers.
If you’re there for a well earned breakfast after an early morning swim, the hearty, Big Breakfast will give you everything you need – free range eggs with country sausage, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms and continental toast. If you’re looking for lighter fare, go for the Hages Sourdough toasts – chunky, thick sliced bread with your choice of smashed avocado with roma tomato and rocket, or sautéd fresh mushrooms with onion and thyme.
Del Giorno’s main menu – for lunch and dinner – is overflowing with mouthwatering options. The jewels in the crown are without a doubt the fresh seafood, but they cater to all tastes here, and include ‘on-land’ offerings too. Coffin Bay oysters served either Natural, Tokyo – with pickled ginger and wasabi finished with soy and mirin sauce – or the traditional Kilpatrick – with bacon and Worcestershire sauce. If you’re still feeling fishy, the menu spans from bluefin tuna and kingfish sashimi to devilled scallops.
For the main course, try the “Mori” tuna steaks, locally farmed, and pan-seared medium rare with a chargrilled vegetable stack and caper berry and cream sauce. If you’re not up for seafood, you can choose between classic fillet steaks, prime Samm Lamb steaks, veal steaks, or chicken fillets with apricot and pistachio and stuffed capsicum. Pair your meal with a wine from an extensive list of local, home-grown wines – from chardonnay to premium wines from the Barossa Valley.
The staff here are on hand to talk you through the menu and more – give them a chance and they’ll let you in on local secrets that the Eyre Peninsula has to offer. Del Giorno’s Cafe Restaurant caters to a range of customers – all there for good views, good times and great food.
