When Sydney graces us with one of her beautiful summer days on a weekend, our family usually abandons the chores and heads to one of the far northern beaches for a dip to cool down and a bite to eat at my very favourite foodie spot in Sydney, The Boathouse Palm Beach
My hubbie first took me here for a birthday lunch a while back and we have been returning ever since. Established in November 2008, owners Andrew Goldsmith and Brianna Russell have worked hard to develop this gem of a place.
The interiors created by Brianna (an interior designer in a previous life) are an example of modern beachside dining at it’s best. It’s light, airy, and the beauty is in it’s laid back simplity and attention to detail. It also helps having the Pittwater basin as a backdrop. The floral displays are simple yet efective, being handpicked at the markets daily by the multi talented co-owner Andrew.
The chilled out ambience is refreshing for a well heeled suburb, with friendly staff who are obviously passionate about what they do. Finally, the beach menu of local produce is simple, fresh and delicious. Plus, did I mention those too die for chips!
Note: This little gem is no longer a secret and finding a table on the weekend may take some patience. Alternatively, you could try for a calmer midweek visit.
