[ADVERT]Beautiful covered outdoor seating with comfortably cushioned chairs, makes Breslin Bar and Grill, 3 Southbank Boulevard, Southbank, an inviting place amongst the multitude of restaurants along this strip.
The menu offers starters such as oysters and Wagyu braesola ($17-$34), burgers ($22-$24), steaks ($32-$72), ribs ($28-$50), rotisserie ($32-$36), and main plates including two fish options ($28-$38). Breslin also offers a whole animal feast for tables of ten or more. With 48hrs notice a sharing menu is prepared around a whole suckling pig, goat or milk fed lamb from the rotisserie with all trimmings.
I ordered the Zator spiced grilled swordfish ($35), which had a mild spiced flavour but unfortunately overcooked. Served on a bed of buba ganoush, raw chickpea and a cucumber and tomato salsa, made for a fresh summery change.
My dining companions ordered grilled corn on the cob ($8) and a rocket salad with beetroot, almonds and feta ($12), as sides, both fresh and light. For mains, mixed ribs (half lamb and half beef, $45), slow cooked for 16 hours. Juicy and tender, however, the copious amount of BBQ sauce would have been preferred served on the side.
Great wine, relaxed atmosphere, and friendly attentive staff are all pluses for this Southbank venue.
