About The Dog & Monocle

Old world charm and dramatic flair beckons diners to The Dog & Monocle on Junction Street in Nowra. With a motto of ‘Adventure is out there’ and inspired by Jules Verne, this steampunk supper club and artisan bar oozes a futuristic retro feel, retaining exposed beams from the old bank building, along with a vault now doubling as a spirits room. Families and groups can gather at booth seating to enjoy a meal and catch up together, while couples cosy up in romantic corners enticed by creative fare, craft beer and cocktails. Perhaps take off on a dining flight plan with jalapeno poppers or popcorn chicken, before in-flight service turns to confit duck Maryland with lentils, zucchini flowers and muhammara. For a sweet departure, try cardamom dumplings with chai gel and gingerbread mascarpone.

First time visiit I am impressed, just had lunch with my daughter and three granddaughters. My daughter and I chose the Sage roasted pumpkin with chorizo, bocconcini, pepitas and heirloom tomatoes, and a beautiful apple balsamic dressing $16, what a fusion of taste, my tastebuds say Thank You! The girls chose other meals which they said were delicious, and they presented beautifully! Many thanks, everything was perfection on a plate, and I just loved the unusal and interesting decor. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. Do yourself a favour and try it, I was amazed at the size inside because it looks a bit small from outside !


Best Atmosphere and Food in town
Stepping into The Dog and Monocle is like stepping back in time. Stylish Sophistication with a twist of Steampunk. Old fashioned cocktails, and a bank vault full off Malt Whiskey, Hendricks Gin, Champagne , Fine Wines and Top End Spirts! Friendly staff and fantastic food make this venue more than a 'dinner out' but a dining experience. Highly Recommend- Busy on the weekends so it's best to book!


You Can’t Beat it so Joint It
Awesome expierence! Fantastic staff, quality food and drink. Have a joint before you get here, because everything is better when you are baked, and that’s the only way this Resturant and classy bar could get better it’s that good. Wedding quality food.


A breath of fresh air, amazing decor, very special service, you couldn't ask for more
