Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel has been dubbed by countless foodies and critics as one of Sydney’s most ‘Instagrammable’ places, and it certainly lives up to this title.
A few months ago the hotel underwent over $2 million worth of multi-level renovations. Previously known as a beach club for old-timers, the renovations have brought every generation flocking for a seafood platter and a schooner by the bay.
With a space on the waterfront showcasing some of the best views Sydney has to offer and beautifully presented platters of food your Instagram followers will seethe with jealousy every time you post.
Kick-back in the nautical-themed club with a bloody mary in hand, while the youngins’ strip bare and paddle in the water. Decked out with striped designs, potted plants, timber pieces and cocktails in coconuts, close your eyes, breathe in the salty air and you could easily be in the Maldives (or any tropical haven really).
Dishing up modern Australian food with plenty of seafood options, the new Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is appreciated by those near and far. It’s a great spot to spend impending long Summer afternoons complete with striking panoramic views of the Harbour, seagulls crying above, ice-cold beer and mussel pots on the table. Gather up some good company and you’re ready to go.
Top picks for food include the seafood platter (tiger prawns, pacific oysters, moreton bay bugs, blue swimmer crab, marinated calamari and dipping sauces), steamed mussels pot, fish a chips, whole baby snapper, yabbie and crab linguine and for dessert, berry tiramisu.
