My wife and I dined at this restaurant last night. A set menu for a Saturday night. Six courses. Every dish was well presented and exceptional. The flavours were never overdone and complimented the main ingredient. We were asked by the very attentive and friendly waitresses, Giorgia and Charlotte, if we had favourites during the meal. We said no as every serving was delicious. We were informed by Luke, the owner, that the set menu is changed regularly to ensure that repeat customers get to try different meals. We will be two of those repeat customers.

Had dinner on Saturday night here - we were staying in Kiama for the weekend and had no idea where we would have dinner - googled and found this place. Was amazing - can not rave enough about it. The service was brilliant and the food was absolutely delicious. Best tarting menu meal I have had for a long long time.

We make the hour drive to Kiama often and have tried many of its food offerings.Our experience is that many are inconsistent and will disappoint when you least want them to. (Such as when you take your friends). We discovered Silica early 2021 when we preferred to take away and sit in the beautiful park. The fish is beautifully cooked and the chips are hot. Not open every day but worth planning into your next Kiama visit. Staff are helpful and friendly. By the way the coffee is pretty good as well.

We have been to Silica on a number of occasions in the past few months with friends and as a couple. They have a great menu and also themed nights (pasta, fish & chips).
The food has always been great and the service is fantastic. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Thoroughly recommend to locals and visitors to our beautiful town.
