Located on the main strip of Botany Rd, Rosebery, not too far away from the likes of Grounds of Alexandria, Potting Shed, this hidden treasure offers a suitable lunch spot for large groups or large sized families with small children.
Linked to Surf Life Saving Australia's National Headquarters, Clubhouse offers an interactive and social atmosphere with an open planned setting that encourages interaction between guests and chefs of the house.
The diner offers guests a range of seating arrangements between two and three seaters to tables for groups of up to eight. Guests are also welcomed to choose the verandah seating complete with cushioned lounges, umbrella and low table for that nice beach club/country house feeling. Spacious, luxurious and low-key,
Clubhouse provides the perfect location for that Sunday brunch.
Time for dessert, the Clubhouse specials were the favourite of the day. Clubhouse's rendition of the classic Gaytime ice cream was heaven. Toffee parfait drizzled with caramel sauce and sprinkled with a variety of nuts.
The service is amazing. The host will take his time to explain any queries guests may have regarding the items on the menu and has the exceptional ability to remember orders from a table of six without writing the items down.
Over to kitchen, as it is designed so that guests are able to interact with kitchen staff, guests also have a feeling of transparency about the entire food preparation process. The open kitchen allows guests to feel that there is nothing to hide and that there will be no surprises served in their pasta linguine, no surprise visitors tagging along for the ride and that the meat in their crab linguine is actually crab meat.
Ambience, service, price and food quality, Clubhouse deserves a four out of five…with one point taken off for lack of originality in the drinks menu. However, they do make very refreshing accompaniments for mains.
