David, Gregory Dunn

14 September 1955  -  4 April 2024


In the beginning, if there was a beginning… I loved YOU.


With a deeply shattered and devastated heart I announce the (sudden) passing of David Gregory Dunn.


The ingredient listing of your essence is almost unspeakable, yet the recipe includes; never ending kindness, gentle persuasion, immeasurable tolerance, extra-ordinary talent, dedicated perfection and a passion to create happiness for those around you.  You are calm beyond explanation, knowing & intuitive, understanding of the human condition… and so much more my darling man…


Your talent & contribution to the world of food and flavour has not gone un-noticed…

a true Master Chef and the experience of bliss you provide each and every time, without fail, will be remembered.


You are the Chefing Surfer… not the Surfing Chef... your priorities were always in order.


You understood me, you loved me & you took care of me….

It is beyond my comprehension how I will to live without you by my side…

I am in shock & disbelief… until we are together again my dearest, deepest love…

wait for me… you are, and will always be, my Davey.


To the end, if there is ever an end… I will continue to love YOU.

"Last night was a dinning experience I won't forget. Amazing wine selection and food was possibly the best I've had in Australia.
This was an amazing experience, service fabulous, restaurant spotlessly clean and so good we phoned friends from the restaurant and made a group booking for following week."

"Get in your car and drive to Crescent Head just to go to this restaurant!
Just had a Friday night dinner there with my partner. I’ve travelled the world, and this was one of the best meals of my life!"
