My Gorgeous Wife and I had friends to meet from Newcastle so we chose Woy Woy as our half-way point, caught the train up from Sydney, then made the 5 minute walk to Woy Woy Fisherman's Wharf for lunch.
Our friends informed us that there had been major renovations done here recently .. the insides have been extensively modernised and a extension to the dining area now sits over the inlet and created a lovely ambience on this winters afternoon.
We all ordered a variety of dishes from barramundi, calamari and chowder. All meals were generous in quantity and beautifully cooked. The difference between good chips and bad chips often comes down to the freshness and quality of the oil and these were just excellent ... always a good test as to the quality of the kitchen.
I always rate a good chowder by how easy your spoon stands upright in it unassisted and have to report there was never going to be any issue here ... it was jammed packed !!! ... best for a long time.
Care had been taken with the wine-list and we found a rather good dry French Rose, again generously poured that just went down perfectly with everything.
Go here for :
- lovely ambience and setting ... outdoor seating over the water is available
- beautifully cooked seafood with generous servings
- attentive, knowledgeable and professional staff
- on the northern train line, 1 1/2 hour trip from central, a short walk from the station
- a getaway from the hussle and clatter of the Sydney cafe scene
A real pleasure to find this place. Next time wont be too far away.
Keep up the good work.
