It’s that time of year to celebrate all things family, food and of course a chocolate coma all weekend!
At Cupitt ’s we have you covered all weekend long with delicious fresh seasonal food and drinks, new release wines, live music and special activities for kids.
For the first in Cupitt history we are opening on Easter Monday; we will close Good Friday but otherwise, we are open EVERY DAY! So bear this in mind if you are looking for a less crowded Easter visit and come to Cupitt’s on Easter Monday.
You can find more information about our long weekend hours HERE.
The restaurant at Cupitt’s tends to fill up very fast over the long weekend so we recommend getting in early to secure your booking. Please note we do have a three-course minimum over the Easter period, see the current menu here.
What about outdoor dining? If you’re looking for something casual and great for the kids we will have our outdoor and pizza menu operating every lunchtime over Easter. Cupitt’s are offering a Picnic Box which can be pre-ordered, have delicious range of cheese, charcuterie and fresh seasonal produce ready on your arrival. Order one today.
The casual Menu including Pizza will be available every day during the school holidays and on Friday and Saturday nights from 5pm – 7pm commencing 13th April. (Note Closed Good Friday)
Morning Tea + Egg Hunt
Long weekends are the perfect time to go out for morning tea with friends and family and when you have a great view as well, it’s even better. View the menu.
This Easter Sunday, we will also be offering an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. The Great Garden Easter Egg Hunt will start at 10am on Easter Sunday. Enjoy drinking coffee (or a glass of bubbles) while the kids are thrilled finding eggs near the veggie garden. This event will appeal to children of all ages. Please wear a hat, sunscreen and closed-toe shoes.

The most significant element is the actual blessing of Ulladulla’s fishing fleet. The festivities will conclude with a magnificent fireworks display over Ulladulla Harbour on Easter Sunday.
