Arthurs Oysters & Seafood

Smashed avo dessert and shucking good beats in Manly.

Helmed by Scottish Rising Star Chef of the Year, Jason Wright (Kittyhawk), the Pittwater Road venue is an on-trend eatery, with the space somewhere between a fish and chip shop and an upscale diner. The decor is a nod to the era of its namesake, Governor Arthur Phillip, who founded the British penal colony that later became Sydney.

A dedicated oyster bar shucks molluscs to order, to sit alongside a share-friendly menu of thought-provoking, innovative dishes. The motto here is 'life's too short for sad seafood', so expect a celebration of top Aussie produce using clever techniques, like fried oyster with steak tartare and horseradish chips; macadamia prawns teamed with freeze dried lychee and artichoke puree, and an amped-up riff on PB&J for dessert.

On hand to wash it down is a short-but-sweet drinks selection, including six Hunter Valley wines on rotation and an oft-changing range of small-batch beers from breweries like Tiny Rebel and Nomad.
