Pier… One of the best seafood restaurant

Pier, one of the best seafood restaurants that I have been too in Sydney. This is one of those restaurants that you would take investors to dine and yes, I have been here with work a couple of times now but I came here one evening with Hubby, as he has never been. This place has been around for a while now and is run by Greg Doyle. Overlooking the water, some believe that he has taken this restaurant into the top league. The menu is quite extensive with different types of seafood, however, never fear, if you are allergic to seafood, they do serve steak and mushroom risotto but their specialty is seafood!

We both ordered an entrée each, Hubby ordered half a dozen of oysters – pacific oysters and they were extremely fresh. Dipped in vinaigrette these oysters were just delightful.

I ordered the carpaccio of coral trout with tomato and lime water vinaigrette. The tomato and lime water vinaigrette gave it a nice kick and tang. This dish was light and refreshing, it was absolutely flavorsome.

For mains, I had the barramundi with witlof, onions and parley butter sauce – the barramundi was fresh, and tender that it broke into pieces in my mouth, the parley butter sauce gave it a nice touch.

Hubby ordered the bread crusted kingfish with piquillo puree and anchovies. This dish was also unbelievably tasty! I am not a big fan of anchovies though, but the bread crusted kingfish was simple, light but yet scrumptious.

We decided to share dessert, as by this time we were both stuffed! We shared the granita with jelly and mango ice cream – this dessert was so so SO good! The combination of the granita, jelly and mango ice cream was so refreshing and divine.

It was a great meal for a special occasion. A great place to take your loved ones, or if you simply just want to have a night out with friends.
