The BOX On The Water

Are these the best views on the coast?

Whenever we’ve got friends visiting from out of town, we always take them to BOX on The Water. Aside from one of the best views on the coast, with the water almost lapping the edge of the restaurant, this place has an impressive menu and drinks list. The BOX is a little more sophisticated in terms of its menu compared to its local hospo neighbours, so think kangaroo carpaccio and mixed baby beets with walnuts and ricotta and you’ve got an idea of calibre. The seafood here is the hero and we highly recommend the whole fried snapper to share or the Atlantic salmon.

The lounge bar deserves a good shout out to the craft beers on tap, these guys often rotate the likes of Young Henrys and Stone & Wood and the wine list is impressive too. Breakfast is available on the weekends and the restaurant also makes for a great location for sun downers on the water with bar snacks. If you’re after quick eats, check out The BOX kiosk that does takeaway coffee and snacks from 7am-4pm daily.
