Peakhurst is fortunate to have a restaurant like The Honey Bee on Forest Road, because not many Sydney suburbs can claim to have such quality at hand. The creation of head chef and owner David Mullington, The Honey Bee menu showcases and celebrates the rich tapestry of influences throughout modern Australian cuisine, with homegrown produce given a touch of refined European class, the zing of Southeast Asian spice and the warming depth of Middle Eastern flavours. Open for dinner, The Honey Bee is a fine-dining restaurant by trade but a friendly neighbourhood eatery at heart, a place to enjoy haute cuisine food without any stuffiness.
Modern Australian food is a complex structure, made up of myriad social, cultural and environmental influences, and The Honey Bee understand this better than most fine-dining restaurants in Sydney.

That should suggest that you’re in for a special, unforgettable treat, and through The Honey Bee’s delicious main, dessert, degustation and ever-changing specials menu you get exactly that.
