An high-quality Italian restaurant inside a classy Mosman rowing club, Presso La Baia is one of the most scenic places in which one can dine in Sydney. Their menu is inspired by the water, with plenty of seafood, and their view is spectacular with the boats and the ocean prominent. Head over to Centenary Drive, where it meets Avenue Road, for a superb meal in a decadent environment: just remember to book your table ahead of time.
Presso La Baia means “at the bay” in Italian, and they couldn’t have chosen a better name to suit the location of the restaurant. They are on Centenary Drive in Mosman, inside the Mosman Rowing Club, and the restaurant looks out directly onto the Mosman Bay. Their view is breath-taking and their menu is inspired by the ocean. They take an Italian twist on the fruits of the sea, with a wide range of crustaceans, fish dishes and other favourites.
The seafood is the star of the show at Presso La Baia, and it is logical to start there when you sit down to dine at their Centenary Drive address. Begin with some fresh Sydney rock oysters with sherry and shallot vinaigrette, and follow them with battered flathead fish and chips, or the catch of the day, chosen fresh from the market. Non-fish eaters have plenty of options too – the steak sandwich is always popular, and the Italian pizza range is extensive – so you really have no excuse not to head down. Set sail for Mosman Bay and reserve your table.
