Ex Pro surfer turned chef, Matthew Hoar heads up the small team of Nathan Adams and Morgan Anderson in the Whale kitchen. All grew up in the area and are living the quintessential south coast life. A healthy dose of surfing, fishing, bush riding and family time with a passion for cooking and work to compliment it.

Their love of nature and the appreciation of the seasons informs the dynamic and ever changing menu, featuring seasonal local produce, foraged foods from the beach and bush and fresh goodies from home gardens, including our own whale garden.
