At Restaurant Plage you’ll find modern Australian cooking that’s beautiful to look at and exquisite to taste. The team here are dedicated to their craft in a way that’s refreshing and very obvious to see as soon as you walk through the door. Speaking of which, you’ll find Restaurant Plage’s front door on Military Road in Cremorne but, frankly, the food here makes for a worthwhile trip from just about anywhere in Sydney. For lunch or for dinner, you’re going to want to hold onto your hats – the Australian flavours at Restaurant Plage may just blow you away.
We’ll start with the restaurant itself: not too big and not too small and decorated with comfort, style and ambience in mind. The space very much succeeds in making you feel relaxed and ready to enjoy what you know is going to be great food, simply from the aromas wafting around the place, Restaurant Plage is on Military Road in Cremorne, making it easily accessible and convenient for whatever your lunch or dinner occasion might be. Essentially, you’re onto a winner with this Sydney gem before you’ve even got to the food.
But food is why we’re all here, of course, and both menus at Restaurant Plage are laced with quality and bursting with fresh, often locally-sourced ingredients that are brought together with passion to produce dishes that are nail-bitingly cool. Some lunch highlights for us include the ricotta and thyme gnocchi with caramelised cauliflower, porcine emulsion and brussel sprout, as well as the pan-fried market fish with celeriac puree, Jerusalem artichoke and finger lime. This kind of modern Australian flair transfers to dinner as well, and the evening standout for us is the roasted kurobuta pork with black soubise sauce, eggplant and black pudding. Restaurant Plage, as you can see, is a Cremorne delight.
Very friendly service, delicious food and relaxed atmosphere. Our favourite is the five course chefs menu that changes all the time so we get to try something new each time.
As usual the degustation we had was delicious and this restaurant is always fantastic value. We also love that it is byo, has great service and menu is always changing.
Delicious food served beautifully. Excellent service. We could not fault this restaurant and highly recommend that everyone try it. It is a gem on the Lower North Shore. Excellent value for money too. We will most definitely be returning to this gorgeous restaurant.
