Hotel Rose Bay

Hotel Rose Bay

After undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation which meant it was closed for 6 months, we have to say that the new Hotel Rose Bay is worth the wait. With its stylish new interior, creative and classic food menu and a great vibe overall, this is a place for all to visit or make your new local.

With stylish terrazzo tiles throughout, the interior design is nicely balanced with gold hues and timber accents, tan leather and soft lighting. Now split into sections, there is a restaurant part, a high-table bar area for more casual dining and then a more informal bar area if you’re just popping in for a drink.

Having enlisted ex-Catalina executive chef Ian Royle, the menu is well balanced with some more creative dishes and also the pub classics. To start our evening, we sampled the Heirloom tomatoes with mozzarella, fennel and fried sourdough, the salmon tartar with avocado, tomato ponzu and wonton crisp, which was spectacular, and the split king prawns with burnt butter and coastal greens for entrée and these dishes were all divine. Well balanced in flavour and with some great textures, we thoroughly enjoyed this start to our evening.

Split King Prawns

For main, we decided upon the organic chicken, coconut, chilli, cucumber with peanuts and the barramundi fillet with cauliflower and tamarind butter, which was very fresh tasting and cooked perfectly. The organic chicken was a standout for us with its mild curry sauce which was just heavenly. The pub classics looked excellent too and will definitely keep the kids happy.

With matching wines provided by the resident sommelier, we thoroughly enjoyed the service and atmosphere of this rejuvenated iconic pub.

Overall, the new Hotel Rose Bay is definitely a breath of fresh air for the East and we recommend you stop by and check it out.

The Hamptons is the playground of the wealthy in New York and traditionally the style is very white and beige, with interesting textures and a nautical theme, but overall, quite a neutral colour palette that provides the feeling of relaxed coastal comfort. But if the […]

Shuk Bondi Review

Shuk Bondi Review

A towns central market place in Israel is called a Shuk, which is where Shuk Bondi takes its inspiration.

Located in the heart of North Bondi, Shuk has been delighting Sydneysiders for years with fantastic Israeli and Mediterranean fare in a very trendy environment.

Formally a corner-store, Shuk is an elegant 80 seat establishment, offering an incredible array of Israeli/Mediterranean delights for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Using fresh produce and dishes that promise a flavour of Israel mixed with modern favourites, there is something on the menu for everyone, even if you need to grab takeaway, Shuk offers a variety of freshly baked pastries and breads with great coffee.

A favourite dish of ours is the shakshuka. This large traditional dish of baked eggs in a spicy, thick tomato sauce is served with whole loaves of freshly baked bread, designed to scoop up as much of the sauce as possible.

Also noteworthy is the teff pancake, made with Ethiopian teff flour, ricotta, sweet dukkah, maple, apple and pear compote, halva (a sweet common in parts of the Middle East and North Africa), berries and crushed pistachios. Also, the felafel’s are to die for!

Open for breakfast and lunch everyday, Shuk is also open for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights, so be sure to check this great place out.
