Discover one of the best South Coast restaurants

At Bella Char Restaurant & Wine Bar, we invite you to indulge in a sumptuous gourmet experience, where the cuisine is fresh and inspiring and the ambience is relaxed.

Bella Char Restaurant

Step into our contemporary space, designed with leather and wood textures in rich colours of red and chocolate. Abundant in natural light, created to enhance the experience when enjoying beautiful food and fine wine, Bella Char is truly a memorable feast for all the senses. Dine inside the restaurant or casually outside in the courtyard or terrace. All options are chic, modern and delightfully comfortable at Mercure Gerringong Resort.

Then there is the food. Our Executive Chef, Dane Tobias, has designed a contemporary menu of modern Australian cuisine that perfectly reflects the South Coast. The menu changes seasonally to highlight the best of each season's ingredients and bring out their natural flavours.  We proudly showcase local Illawarra and Shoalhaven suppliers and produce.
