Head Chef Joel Cousins

The Goolwa born-and-bred culinary king works alongside Olaf to help create a menu that's seasonal and references the area.

One of Joel’s breakfast specialties is the Beached Benedict, featuring smokes salmon and wakame, a Korean seaweed. It’s a smooth blend of flavours that perfectly represents the sea.

A summer favourite amongst diners is Joel’s Goolwa Superbowl, a Bouillabaise style soup packed with fresh fish, goolwa cockles, scallops, mussels and prawns.
