Burnt Orange - Mosman, Sydney

It's nice to spend time outdoors when the weather is beautiful and warm.  This post is making me wistfully dream about summer weather, whilst I'm rugged up in bed and hibernating through this horrible cold and windy weather.

Burnt Orange is one of those picturesque locations, overlooking Sydney Harbour, that make you feel like you've had a mini escape.  Most of their dining area is located outside, and they even have a little boutique inside selling cute knick knacks, books and gourmet food - definitely my kind of place! <3

Cranberry juice - filled with strawberries and a wedge of lime

Lovely view on a beautiful day

This is the Burnt Orange fish pie - a selection of fresh fish fillets in a creamy leek and white wine sauce, topped with fluffy potato mash and a side of green leaves

This was deliciously creamy and rich, so the side salad was a very welcome addition.

Rigatoni Puttanesca - light spicy tomato sauce with kalamata olives and basil

This was pretty stock standard offering on the menu, chosen as a vegetarian option

Coconut panna cotta with a redcurrant jelly and sesame seed crisp - served on a cute patterned plate, this was quite nice. The sesame crisp didn't quite go with the dish though

Apple and rhubarb crumble with vanilla bean ice cream - a tricky balancing act trying to keep the ice cream on top of the ramekin, though it was worth it as this was divine.

Burnt Orange also have high teas, which I'm keen to check out next time I visit. I also couldn't help but buy one of the many candles they had in the boutique - a lovely Lucia pomegranate and redcurrant candle, which smells amazing!

After lunch, we slowly made our way back towards the city, but stopped past Kirribilli for a wander around - never tire of this pretty view!
