Tucked in behind a lush row of tropical plants is the rather chic & effortlessly cool Henrys Cronulla.

Feeling more like being on the French Riviera than in Sydney’s South, it’s a refreshing change & one that’s giving Sydney’s finest restaurants a real run for their money.

It was so easy to while away a long, late lunch here and we were not the only ones doing so, we saw many tables enjoying their crisp cocktails and fabulous tapas style menu long before we arrived and still happily planted when we left many happy hours later.

It appears this sweet spot is already gaining a cult following among the locals.

Under the direction of Publica Groups executive chef Rafael Tonon, Henrys Cronulla leads a sharp, fresh & fun chef driven menu which is complimented with palate tingling cocktails.

It has the quality of fine dining within a very chilled setting.

Service is excellent with waitstaff educated on all the dishes and we were delighted with their recommendations.

Kingfish crudo, heirloom vegetables, horseradish, oyster emulsion and avruga caviar

This dish is a light, fresh and flavour filled way to start a long lunch.

The kingfish was clean and light with a beautiful texture, and my personal favourite was pairing this with a fine slice of radish and caviar dressed in that beautiful emulsion, the slight heat from the radish lending a beautiful flavour to the kingfish.

If you’re looking for a dish to lead into a love affair with fish then this might be it.

 Ortiz Anchovies, house curd & smoked tomato

This was definitely a “take a chance” dish not being an anchovy fan and all.

2G9A7250

But it certainly surprised me and brought me out of that shell. The saltiness of the anchovies were paired beautifully with the house curd and smoked tomato.

The house curd is a stellar performer with is perfect delicious creaminess and I’m still dreaming of it.

Fried Cauliflower, sheep’s labna, raisins & cumin vinaigrette

What’s not to love with a spiced, sweet and tart dish.

2G9A7254

With such a beautiful contrast of flavours there was not a moment of hesitation with eating every last bite and licking the last taste from your lips with delicious satisfaction.

Heirloom Tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and capers

What was originally thought to be the weakest contender of lunch turned into a surprisingly simple yet flavour filled burst of freshness.

2G9A7278

My first mouthful was without all the components but once every component was stacked into a perfect little bite it showed it could definitely hold its own with the other dishes so far.

White chocolate mousse, chocolate shortbread, honeycomb & ganache

As a self confessed sweet tooth, I find that desserts are an area that few restaurants are really capable of pulling off and so I ordered this beautiful sounding sweet with a little trepidation, not wanting to ruin a fantastic four out of four dish line up.

2G9A7320

That worry was unwarranted. Like everything before, Henry’s Cronulla delivered a gorgeous dessert that is rich without being overly sweet. What a very happy surprise!

My sister’s warm spiced chocolate cake, anglaise, bucking & mascarpone

Last but definitely not least, a lovely spiced chocolate cake with a delicious salted anglaise. Rich, playful and invoking of memory of Christmases spent in Europe. Delicious!

Henry’s seems a pretty perfect way to spend a balmy sunny day, with the sea water so close you taste the salt on your lips & as the temperature heats up Henry’s will surely be a cool place to be seen this summer.
