For mains select live lobster from the tank, or whole fish, beef, poultry or pork that’s either roasted in the charcoal oven or over the Basque grills. To accompany your meal, the larder table has a selection of vegetables, simply prepared.  We have an extensive wine list curated by group sommelier Franck Moreau MS, and a cocktail list with our take on the classics.  The champagne bar is the perfect place to stop by before or after dining, overlooking Pittwater Bay.
