WHAT’S THE PERFECT WAY TO SPEND A SUMMER? WINING AND DINING AT A WATERFRONT PARADISE SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD TO US, AND WE’RE LOVING WHAT’S ON THE MENU AT SANCTUARY COVE.
The little sister of renowned Sanctuary Cove staple Ioesco Restaurant has arrived at The Marine Village, boasting an impressive modern Italian and Mediterranean menu of breakfast and lunch offerings – with the quality coffee to match.
Esco is on track to become Sanctuary Cove’s mid-morning hotspot, with the poached eggs, asparagus, vine-ripened tomatoes served with toast and extra virgin olive oil already one of the most popular menu items. Bellies full, but still not sick of the picturesque harbour view, customers are sure to dive into the extensive drinks menu and indulge all afternoon long.
“Overlooking one of the most beautiful harbours in the world, Esco is the perfect place to start the day, soaking up the serenity for breakfast, to enjoy lunch alfresco in the sunshine or to meet up with friends for a drink as the sun sets,” says restaurant owner and chef Max Alfieri.
Extending the opening times of the popular Ioesco, Esco will make the most of the warmer months by giving Sanctuary Cove visitors and residents alike the perfect place to relax waterside.With a focus on simple, perfectly cooked ingredients and quality service, there’s no better place to celebrate summer.
Arnie’s Café and Bar
There’s no meal of the day that you can’t enjoy at Arnie’s. Breakfast? Sorted, with a fresh cold-pressed juice or a steaming coffee – best enjoyed whilst also drinking in the stunning scenery. For lunch, tuck into a classic Arnie’s Parmy or any other hearty, wholesome menu item, all while keeping watch for the kangaroos, kookaburras and other wildlife that have been known to frequent the nearby green. For a before dinner treat, a crisp glass of wine and a share plate on the outdoor patio makes for the perfect sundowner – then duck inside for a barramundi or a burger. And, if you’re looking to host the perfect summer soiree, Arnie’s is also available for private hire, and is perfect for cocktail receptions, launches, meetings or social gatherings.
If it’s hearty food and good vibes you’re after, there’s no place like the Cove Tavern. Serving up lunch and dinner from a seasonally changing menu – this summer, we’re eyeing off the seafood pasta – the Cove Tavern promises quality food and quality service, as well as mouth-watering daily specials that will have you coming back night after night. Whether it’s a lunch in the sunshine or an intimate dinner with friends – or, dare we say, some late-night grub to fuel your night – you’ll find something to whet your appetite on the Cove Tavern’s extensive menu. Then, before you go, be sure to wash it all down with an ice-cold schooner or a wine from their selection.
