Situated in the inner city suburb of Rosebery on the ground level of Surf Life Saving Australia HQ is Clubhouse Bar & Restaurant. A relaxed and stylish setting, where guests can enjoy delicious international dishes with an Australian twist, all accompanied by a range of delectable cocktails.
‘La Dolce Bitter’ $17
A perfect way to start off on a scorcher of a day. This icy drop was made with Beefeater gin, Campari, Aperol, Amaro Montenegro, fresh lemon juice, pink grapefruit juice, homemade orange & cardamom reduction, shaken and strained into a martini glass.
What an absolutely beautiful dish! If I wasn’t famished I would have just sat there and gazed at the vivid array of colours for a while. Fresh cuts of salmon, tuna and kingfish sashimi where accompanied by a sweet mango salsa and various herbs. A really great dish to end a really great summer.
Swordfish hard shell Tacos, ceviche, celeriac remoulade, tomato, corn $12
Another really great option. The swordfish ceviche was firm and meaty, working superbly with the crunchy celeriac and sweet corn scattered throughout. What I was most impressed with is how good the taco shell was. Crispy but with enough strength not to fall apart on the first bite.
Spiced lamb ribs, tahini yoghurt, mint, za’atar, pomegranate dressing $24
I do love lamb! I couldn’t resist ordering these and was so pleased with the result. The spiced meat had the perfect fat to meat ratio and literally slid off the immaculately cleaned bones. The tahini yoghurt was a much welcomed addition cutting the meats fatty richness.
Fish of the Day, saffron infused potato fondant, zucchini, carrot puree $24
Ocean trout was on the menu today and was plated very nicely with its vegetable accomplices. Crispy seared skin and soft and flaky throughout. This was a delicious dish that’s worth a try.
Tomato salad, buffalo mozzarella, basil, sherry vinaigrette $8
A fresh salad to go with our mains, the tomatoes were firm and sweet, mixing well with the creamy mozzarella and sharp balsamic.
Strawberry mille-feuille, creme patissiere, strawberry sorbet, meringue $15
Theres always room for desset and for good reason. These dishes keep getting prettier and prettier. This layered wonder didn’t last long with its crusty pastry and vanilla custard creme.
Going hand in hand was a tart and refreshing strawberry sorbet.
Clubhouse is a great space for any dining situations, providing breakfast (weekends), lunch and dinner to hungry patrons from all around.
