It is no wonder that this cool, minimalist space poised on a pier in Rose Bay's Lyne Park is one of Sydney's best, award winning restaurants.

The specialty is seafood, including salmon smoked on the premises, scallops and oysters.
With a tasteful decor comprising mural-adorned exposed brick walls, pendant lights and bamboo-framed chairs, Mr. Wong is a 240-capacity Cantonese restaurant. Spread out over two stories, this is a restaurant where the menu is just as tastefully designed as the surroundings, featuring in excess of 60 Cantonese-style treats. The Chinese roasted duck, Mr. Wong's crispy skin chicken and deep-fried pork ribs with spicy salt are just a few of the many scrumptious dishes on offer. A wine menu is also available.
Don't let this café's vegetarian status put you off; Yullis is a meat-free experience that carnivores can really sink their teeth into. Right on the busy part of Crown Street, it's a café by day and restaurant and wine bar by night, with a menu based around tasty share plates and mains that are great for any time of day. Pass around a plate of goat cheese and artichoke arancini or keep the pan-fried polenta with braised mushrooms and fennel all to yourself. Dessert here is a must too, with options like the rather decadent white Belgian chocolate caramel slice served with ice cream.
The Coogee Pavilion is split into two levels, a downstairs kid-friendly restaurant and an upstairs adults-only rooftop bar. Not only can you dig into wood-fire cooked pizzas, cold-pressed juices and fresh oysters at the restaurant, you can also spend quality time with your kids while playing a game of ping-pong, scrabble board or blocks. However if you are visiting solo or as a couple, you can head straight upstairs to the rooftop bar and enjoy stunning views of the ocean. Seating includes a mix of comfortable couches, love seats, bar stools and benches. If you are lucky (and reach really early!), you can even dine at the indoor beach hut or sit on the solitary rocking chair hidden behind a potted palm tree. The place is frequented by locals and tourists alike, and is generally packed to the brim but the presence of three bars ensures that the service is quick. The upbeat music, breezy atmosphere and lively crowd are sure to leave you raving about this place for a long time to come.
