With a view that sets the scene, Kelly’s Bar and Grill is the perfect spot to finish up a day of intense shopping or sun-tanning on the beach. Whether for a hearty dinner or a couple of drinks watching the sun set behind the bridge, Kelly’s should be on your list!
To start the evening, complimentary bread was served. It was brioche style, sweet and moreish. We had to remind ourselves not to finish every crumb as this was just the beginning.
Camembert Cheese, $14.95
Lightly crumbed and fried, this dish had everything in one for cheese lovers. A crispy coating wrapping an oozing center, every bite melted in the mouth, along with a crunch. Paired with cranberry sauce, this dish had the delicate balance of sweet and salty.
A South African speciality. These sausages were packed with flavour and tasted the way every sausage should, juicy and flavoursome. Kelly’s signature South African dip – Monkey Gland Sauce – was a welcome accompaniment. A tangy flavour of fruit and spices, it complimented the boerewors just right!
Lamb Ribs (500g), $36.95
Lamb Ribs, a dish to get your hands dirty. Falling off the bones, each bite was overwhelmingly good. Basting with Kelly’s secret house recipe, it was finger licking delicious.
Kelly’s HOT BITE (300g), $48.95
An eye fillet with a 3 peppercorn crust, ordered and arrived just like it was supposed to. A medium rare steak with a side of chips and crispy thin onion rings. The fillet was succulent and tender with extra heat from the crust.
Side Sauces, $2.95
An endless list of sauces, each unique and worthy of your attention. Adding to our feast, the mushroom cream sauce and the black pepper cream sauce was just as expected; full of flavour and creaminess. From the chips to the steak, the sauce was a great addition.
New York Cheesecake, $10.95
For those who have a sweet tooth, the night is not over. A house baked New York cheesecake ended our night, with a beautifully subtle caramel biscuit base served with vanilla ice cream and a side of cranberry sauce. No matter how full you are, there should always be room for this!
Wine should always accompany any meal and with the range Kelly’s offers, you will be sure to find what you love. The wine list is bursting with well known, and the not so well known Australian wines, as well as international wines.
With a variety of drinks on the menu, including dessert cocktails and coffee, Kelly’s offers a full spread. For a romantic sundowner or a family outing, this bar and grill is highly recommended.
