Dropped in here for lunch after the lady in the Pineapple shop downstairs recomended it. We had the Antipasto platter ($30) to share and a Pizza with pancetta and rocket ($20).
The Antipasto was amazeballs. Gorgeous arancini, salumi, and procuitto, A fresh (not tinned) beetroot, goats cheese and walnuts salad, a warm pumpkin and pine nut salad, some green beans with a delicate little zing of anchovy and some capsicum pickle. Two types of olives and some crusty toasted pane de casa. Every mouthful was a beautiful surprise. If you go there you must order this : )
The Pizza was delicious. Perfect base (oh how I hate those commercial gluggy pizza bases) homemade tomato sauce, generous amounts of crispy pancetta and cheese. Fresh rocket and a drizzle of olive oil on top and straight to the table.
Service was crisp and clean. Our waier was immaculate and it made for a pleasant change not having to ask for water to be refilled etc. She kept and eye on about 7 tables and never missed a beat.
This is a great restaurant. Super fesh produce, cooked with love. I just KNEW there were girls in the kitchen!!!!

If you're looking for a place to enjoy a good meal and the lovely waterfront location of Bermagui at the same time, keep this in mind, and cross your fingers. We have often gone on by at lunchtime and cursed this place for having the deck all shut up when it's just where you want to be on a beautiful Bermi afternoon; but apparently they are now sometimes open at lunch. Keep it as an option if you are looking around.
The food certainly leaves the lacklustre offerings at the Sundeck (at the other end of the building) for dead, but somehow we always end up at the Sundeck because it looks open, and it has the deck and the view. Pretty sad really because Il Passaggio offers very good, fresh, seasonal Italian fare. Interesting options for pizzas and pasta, not your common old marinara and napolitana, appropriately cooked and pleasingly presented. A suitable wine list, and if you end up indoors, it's a pleasingly decorated space, airy and cool looking with a modern Italian country feel and not bad acoustics. Friendly and attentive service.

My husband and I went with 2 friends to il Passaggio at Bermagui, to celebrate a birthday. The food was very ordinary - no fish in my Fritto Misto dish only over cooked prawns and onion. My rissotto was way too salty. The Vanilla Panna Cotta with figs was OK. Between the 4 of us our meal with 3 glasses of wine and 2 beers cost $260!!! Didn't help that the computer system crashed and we had to wait 20 minutes for our bill without any explaination or apology. We came away feeling very disappointed indeed. I envy the people who had great meals and service at this restaurant as we certainly didn't.

My friends and I had a girls night out recently while on holidays with our families. The initial impression was that it was maybe a little fancy for our usual nights out and budgets but we wanted to try anyway. The staff were the most amazing and helpful that I had ever dealt with. We didn't make a booking but they were happy to accommodate and even recommended somewhere close to have a drink whilst waiting for a table. The food made us very quiet for the bulk of the evening as we just couldn't get enough! Definitely recommend the pizzas and steak, also the cabbage side and polenta chips. ;)
