The Sailors Club - Rose Bay, Sydney

The Sailors Club is located waterside in Rose Bay, where fine dining restaurant Pier used to be. The Sailors Club is more casual, bright and relaxed. The bright yellow chairs and turquoise ceiling give the place a very beachy and Palm Springs vibe. 

We gather for a Saturday lunch to celebrate the lovely Miss V's birthday

The Sailors Club has a number of cocktails for sharing on offer. We start off with the bright and fruity Aperol & Cider Spritz which contains Eristoff Vodka, Aperol, pressed orange juice and The Hills apple cider

Eldeflower & Cucumber breeze

Square One Cucumber vodka, St Germain, lemongrass, pressed lime juice, apple juice, apple cider

Duck Liver Parfait, Grilled Pear, Lavender and Honey

Such a sight to behold - could eat this gorgeously creamy parfait all day. 

Crudo of John Dory, Char-grilled chillies and Grapefruit 

A very pretty dish with light and refreshing flavours.

Mozzarella Stuffed Zucchini Flowers, Tomato & Saffron Confit

Pan Roasted Mussels, Chorizo, Red Onion & Parsley

A simple but satisfying dish. Bread is provided on the side to mop up all the wonderful sauce. 

Whiting Crumbed in Orange & Almond, Lemon Confit

TSC Three Cut Burger, Lettuce Heart, Onion & Beetroot

Roasted Kingfish with Braised Mushroom & Parsley Oil

Risotto of Summer Vegetables

Seared Yellow Fin Tuna, White Anchovy, Cucumber and Chilli Salsa

This was brought out as a pre-dessert and we were all wowed by how pretty it was. 

Apricot Creme Caramel, Puffed Rice, Raspberry, Fromage Blanc

This was my dessert and whilst I found it nice at first, it left a salty aftertaste, which became unpleasant after a while and I wasn't able to finish it. 

The Sailors Club Tiramisu

This on the other hand was amazing. Served with liquid nitrogen, the dish comes served with a trail of smoke. The dish is decadent with chocolate throughout, but the frozen aspect makes it quite light and gives the dessert some interesting textures.

Mini Banoffee Glace, Peanut

Birthday dessert - this was such a sweet surprise, brought out after we had finished the desserts

I would describe this as a deconstructed black forest, and it was amazing! (the only bad thing is that we were way too full from our meals to really enjoy it)

A nice spot for a casual lunch by the water. It also seems to be the spot for celeb spotting as during our lunch, Michelle Bridges was dining a few tables away :)
