Nestled away in the heart of The Rocks is Ananas, an indulgent little touch of Paris and acclaimed French restaurant. A luxurious and unforgettable experience, Ananas caters for every occasion, whether that be having a touch of bubbles, sipping on decadent cocktails at the bar or indulging oneself with a meal in the Brasserie. French for ‘pineapple’, Ananas is sassy and avant-garde with 1920’s inspired décor; it’s the Sydney sophisticate’s playground, where the produce reigns supreme.
Monthly, Ananas host their famous monthly themed long Champagne brunches. The theme for this brunch was French Riviera, and I can definitely say that I was certainly feeling that decadent and lavish lifestyle. Stepping through the threshold I felt a certain ‘lifestyles of the rich and famous’ feeling. We were presented with long tables of endless oysters, pâté, terrine, charcuterie, cheeses and other French themed delicacies. We had to double back to check we weren’t in Cannes or Saint-Tropez!
Walking to our table I was delighted furthermore by the amazing spread of hot brunchables like poached eggs, roast beef and lamb, cheese filled savoury crepes and many more. After the savouries we headed straight for the mouth-watering dessert selection. Croissants and eclairs and gateauxs! Oh My! All these and more, my favourite being the DIY crepe and icecream stations.
If you thought that was all you’re sadly mistaken (well not sadly really). On top of the buffet style dining, the amazingly attentive (and eye catching if I don’t say so myself) staff are always walking by with goodies to pile your plate, like grilled sardines, mini ham and cheese croissants and mushroom tartlets.
We happily also added to all this with the two-hour bottomless Moët Champagne package for $50 per person! Because, why not? How very French indeed!
