We were looking for a place for lunch after walking 3.5 Km from Bondi Beach to Bronte Beach on the east coast near Sydney, Australia. The front of a quaint restaurant caught our attention and we walked straight in.
The menu on the wall presented an attractive selection of salads, sandwiches and entrées.
I ordered a sandwich with wagyu beef and brie in quinoa bread. It came also with roasted onions and an arugala salad. The beef was tender and the bread was a healthy choice. I was also happy with the long black (coffee) with milk.
My husband chose the haloumi salad. It was a colorful dish with a vinaigrette dressing–delicious too.
Despite its rather stark decor, the quality of the food was a pleasant surprise. It turned out that the proprietor was French and its service staff were also French-speaking. That probably explained the more European style menu compared to its neighbouring restaurants which offered all day breakfast, American style. I was really pleased that as a total stranger to this area, I discovered this a unique hidden gem of a restaurant at Bronte Beach.
