Shaded under blue and white striped beach umbrellas we sat… taking lazy sips of icy cold drinks as we waited for the chilled out sounds of Alaskan band ‘Portugal – The Man’ to break through the Harbour-side air.
Throughout the day cheerful anticipation grew, as fit bodies quickly filled the stools placed behind tall tables that were scattered with ice buckets full of Corona. The delicious menu proved a wonderful way to pass the time with its ocean inspired and seasonally-fresh selections. Traditional fish and chips, if not the healthiest choice, was certainly a fun one. While a healthier bucket of fun, was the one filled with juicy orange tiger prawns. Meat lovers get-set for beef served in style with tender fillets lain upon charred pepperonata /salsa verde. And Madame’s top pick was the Berkshire Pork Belly served on rainbow apple slaw with peanut crush.
Time passed quickly as we soaked up the view over the bay. The boats swaying slowly atop the peaceful water, and the city skyline looking like a ghostly shadow in the distance, provided a magical backdrop for the well-loved band that played their hearts for a loving audience on this sunny afternoon.
While live music isn’t a typical feature of the venue – the relaxed fun atmosphere is. The crowd provides a good mix and everyone is there for a great time. It’s easy to get to and is perfectly located at the end of the ferry wharf.
Watson’s Bay Boutique Hotel is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner – perfect for any time of the day. There are 31 luxury hotel rooms for those looking for an over nighter and a bottle shop providing for dinks in the park across the road. This is an absolute must to check out this summer!
