Now Open: St Siandra Brings Amalfi Coast-Inspired Dining and Mediterranean Flavours to Mosman
The Spit's newest waterfront venue brings the Mediterranean to you with flavourful dishes and beachfront views.
April 03, 2023
Gracing the streets of Mosman is the much-anticipated restaurant and bar, St Siandra. The Spit's newest waterfront venue boasts stunning interiors, beachfront views and a menu that will guide you on an experiential Mediterranean tour — from the comfort of your seat.
Brought to you by the hospitality duo behind Great Eats, Mitchell Davis and Gavin Gray's first Sydney venue takes nautical inspiration for its name, honouring the famous Middle Harbour-based yacht from the 1950s-60s. The chefs-turned-restauranteurs have teamed up with Head Chef Sam McCallum, formerly from Nomad, and Adam George, now St Siandra's General Manager, for a star-studded in-house team with a wealth of experience.
"From sunset cocktails to long, leisurely lunches overlooking the water, St Siandra is all about having a holiday state of mind, offering a sensory escape to the Amalfi Coast without the need to leave Sydney," said General Manager Adam George.
Decked out with golden, Amalfi Coast-inspired interiors, gorgeous terracotta tiling and a bar laden with white marble and gold detailing, the restaurant dons a sunny aesthetic to emulate a luxurious getaway to the Italian region. For those who choose to arrive in style, you can make your entrance on the water from the venue's wharf access, or opt for the usual route on land.
Designed by Sally Taylor, who has previously curated venues including Felix, Queen Chow and Elva, the restaurant also features woven loveseats sourced from Italy and decorative plaster lighting. Head up the winding staircase to discover the events room — named the Bluebird Room & Deck — adorned in blue hues and basking in natural light. This function space caters up to 70 patrons and includes a private bar and deck accompanied by picturesque views.
Wondering when you can visit this flavour-fuelled haven? St Siandra is open for all key meal times — breakfast, lunch, dinner — but also offers up takeaway coffee and breakfast treats from Seaforth's Staple Bakery. And when you want a taste of everything, the tasting and group dining menus have got you covered for $88 per person. The stacked, seafood-focused menu champions local Australian produce, pairing it with Mediterranean spices to offer up a flavourful dining experience.
If you opt for the breakfast menu, be sure to try the chickpea pancakes paired with vanilla ricotta and date syrup, or the house-made granola with pistachios, honey and yoghurt. Heading over for the lunchtime or dinner menu, instead? Skull Island tiger prawn skewers and the seven spice slipper lobster are crowd-favourites. For a meat-focused main, opt for the charcoal-smoked Angus MB4 short rib or the lamb shoulder accompanied by eggplant, yoghurt and pomegranate.
Dessert runs to the likes of apple brik pastry pie, with almonds and cardamom ice cream; and the pineapple pavlova, with crème fraiche and molasses. Continue the nautical theme and sail your way through cocktails named after local luxury yachts — the Rum Runner and Champagne Charlie are highly recommended — or a bottle of bubbles.
