I am a freelance writer living in Manly. I enjoy writing reviews for Weekend Notes.
I enjoy the outdoors and anything to do with the water. My interests are travel, Live Theatre,The Ballet and Restaurants that serve delicious innovative food.
A new modern contemporary restaurant has opened at Clontarf Reserve. Surrounded by wonderful parkland and a beach, this is an idyllic position. Bosk was once Clonny's Restaurant, which was a favourite for many years.
Bosk has taken on a fresh new look with inside and outside dining. As well as good food, there are all amenities. Wonderful for picnics, barbecues, swimming or just sitting under a tree with a good book.
My friend chose the salmon with green vegetables. It made a pretty picture and she said it was delicious.
It is open every day and there is plenty of outdoor seating. There is also a children's playground nearby. This can be seen in the first photo.
I went to Bosk on a cold winter's day after a walk along the beach, which is close by. Just wanting something warm and nourishing, I ordered the soup. It was an unusual tasty dish with clams and lots of fresh vegetables.
So the next time you want a good day out, try this beautiful reserve. A lovely lunch, a picnic and a swim. There is parking facilities - some charge and some are free. There is also a lovely nature walk with water views all the way to Manly.
