Go Travel Windsor: An International Touch

Address: Shop 2, Lachlan Court, 100 George Street
Phone: 0411 156 048
Hours: Open daily 8am to 4pm
In this pocket-sized corner of Lachlan Court, Sue Keirouz - a charming chef and a friendly spirit - has created an unusual and delightful ambience with vintage art, unusual pillows and miscellaneous china tea cups. But, we're here to talk about food and Sue has won the tastebuds and the tummies of Windsor-ites in a short period. Think international and think Aussie.
While Lebanese cuisine is at the heart of her menu, great salads of the Australian variety such as Caesar with chicken breast or grilled Haloumi with asparagus and avocado are also available.
Recently we sampled Sue's traditional Lebanese breakfast - lightly scrambled eggs served with a slowly-simmered dish of slender sausage, red capsicum and Lebanese flat beans. Steaming hot, this bold breakfast was delivered upon an iron serving dish and served with Lebanese bread. Think bold for breakfast!
For dessert, it's homemade - rich and heavenly - and there are so many choices. We finish off our breakfast with a Wild Berry Frost - a wonderful combination of boysenberry, black current and strawberry - a concoction to write home about. (Editor's note: If you BYOB, the staff will mix it.) On this rainy Sunday at a nearby table, a birthday celebration brings forth, along with a luscious dessert plate, the entire staff to sing and to clap.
Suez Kitchen is welcoming with an oh-so-friendly staff. Sue is most often at the range -- she loves to cook -- but she loves to chat with customers!
Go Travel Windsor: A Place To Lay Your Weary Head

As the Hawkesbury Show (Hawkesbury Showground, Clarendon) is coming up, 15-17 April, you may have out of town guests who need accommodation. We have recommendations. For the budget minded, book with Alexander The Great Motel in Vineyard.
Address: 317 Windsor Road, Vineyard
Phone: 02 4577 5555
Note: Book early if you are attending the Bridge-to-Bridge races or the Blues & Roots Festival.
In 2013, the ATG (as Windsor-ites call the motel) took on new life - new bathroom, beds, bed linens, microwaves, toasters - new everything!
ATG is a family-owned and managed affordable motel with 25 rooms, a pool and restaurant within a few steps. The family is of Macedonian heritage - hence the name. This three-and-a half-star motel is only minutes from historic Windsor. Its close proximity creates high demand, so best book your reservations early - months early if you want to attend the annual Power Boat or Ski races, or the Sydney Blues & Roots Festival.
John and Katerina are friendly hosts, paying special attention to your needs. They have young kids so are empathetic to moms and dads and they want your stay to be pleasant and easy.
TIZZANA WINERY B&B
If you would like a lovely getaway in April we know just the B&B. Temperatures will have cooled in the Hawkesbury and kayaking on the river will be great fun. But the icing on the cake is a weekend stay at upmarket Tizzana B&B in Ebenezer -- a five star accommodation experience, complete with wine from the cellar and local Hawkesbury produce..
Address: 518 Tizzana Road, Ebenezer
Phone: 02 4579 1150
Advance bookings for dinner upon arrival are required. A gay-friendly establishment.
Only a 15-minute drive from Windsor, Tizzana B&B is situated on a winding road through horse and wine country. This five-star accommodation, where idyllic Tuscan-like views overlook the vineyards and a nearby lily farm, is just 'what the doctor ordered'.
Our reference is to Dr. Thomas Fiaschi (c.1887) who planted this Australian vineyard and built the early sandstone cellar door. The original building burnt down in 1955, leaving only a stone shell. After much painstaking and backbreaking work, Carolyn and Peter Auld have brought the cellar door back to its original intent and have added a fashionable B&B upstairs on the first level.
Bedrooms are furnished and beautifully decorated with handsome large wooden pieces; the living area with large leather couches, a fireplace and area rugs. This is a B&B with that touch of sophistication and style. An additional benefit… with early arrangements prior to your arrival, you can book a five-course dinner at the cellar door. Carolyn's dinners are divine - slow food prep and artisan wines. Such indulgence!
