The Stone Oven @ Gossip Corner: A Culinary Haven for Discerning Palates

Gossip Corner has a new hidden gem, The Stone Oven! Nestled within the heart of this renowned restaurant situated between Pringle Bay and Gordon’s Bay, The Stone Oven offers an unparalleled dining experience.

 
Exclusive Dining Area

With a focus on creating unforgettable moments around delectable dishes, this exclusive dining area promises an evening of luxury, comfort, and mouthwatering cuisine.

• The Stone Oven: Thursday Evening to Sunday Afternoon (and extended hours during peak season)

Chef Emile and his team believe eating out should be an event to remember. That's why the doors of The Stone Oven open exclusively from Thursday evenings through Sunday afternoons. 

These carefully selected days allow an intimate atmosphere, ensuring every guest receives the utmost attention and an exceptional dining experience.

 
The Essence of The Stone Oven

The Stone Oven is more than just a dining area. It is a testament to Gossip Corner’s commitment to culinary excellence. 

With a wood-fired oven taking centre stage, every dish prepared is with precision and care. Each bite taken imparts the distinct flavours only a wood-fired oven can provide. This cooking method imparts a rich smokiness and ensures that each dish is done to perfection, enhancing the ingredient's natural flavours.

 
The Stone Oven - A Symphony of Slow-Cooked Flavours

The Stone Oven’s menu boasts a variety of options to suit every palate. The “Star of the Show” is the selection of slow-cooked meat dishes, each meticulously prepared to satisfy even the most discerning carnivore. From succulent pulled beef and tender pork ribs to traditional paella packed with ingredients, the belly of The Stone Oven’s wood-fired oven is full of surprises!

 
Pizza Perfection @ The Stone Oven

A wood-fired experience wouldn’t be complete without a selection of artisanal pizzas. Hand-stretched dough, topped with a medley of fresh ingredients, and kissed by the flames of the oven, these pizzas redefine the classic comfort food. Whether you prefer the Napolitana’s simplicity or the boldness of a meat-topped creation, each slice tells a story of cuisine craftsmanship and passion.

 
It’s In The Little Things…

The art of dining is in the details. At The Stone Oven, even the side dishes shine. From garden-fresh salads that complement your main course to perfectly roasted vegetables that add depth to your meal, the menu add-ons are carefully designed to elevate your culinary journey.

Don’t forget to treat yourself to a pot still brandy from a collection of high-end brandy on display in the oak cabinet in the bar area adjacent to The Stone Oven. Your server will advise you which will be best to enjoy before and after your meal.
