Quotes from Bangalay Luxury Villas owner and General Manager Michelle Bishop:

“Bangalay Dining is committed to providing high quality and unique food and wine experiences. As regional areas begin to open up again to visitors, Bangalay Dining’s offerings are responsive to social distancing and the knowledge that there is a heightened awareness of supporting local producers and providores, something which we have always had a focus for. Our new interactive experiences provide an opportunity for our talented team to share their knowledge and delight our guests with some incredible flavours.”
