Lunch at Deckhouse Woolwich

Restricted by the psychological boundaries of the Harbour Bridge and inner East / West, it is easy for Sydneysiders to overlook dining options outside the city slicker bubble. The stylish Deckhouse in Woolwich is a reminder that there are numerous vantage points from which to enjoy the sparkling sensation that is Sydney harbour – a mere boat trip away.
Our transport awaits
A sunny winter’s day is the perfect setting for a leisurely Friday lunch, the harbour smiling brightly as we pile into a water taxi at Darling Harbour. Less than a ten minute ride away, we arrive at a modern venue far removed from the frenetic pace of the CBD. A yacht glides past slowly, a dog can be heard in distant bushland, and the sun dapples the freshly painted balcony.

The lunch menu is simple and inviting, with the chicken salad and the fillet steak the most popular at our table. Both are unpretentious and high quality, and are followed by melt in your mouth desserts that quickly disappear. The chocolate mousse with peanut butter ice cream is a clear favourite.

One of many hidden gems lining the harbour, Deckhouse represents the best of what Sydney is famous for. With views of the spectacular waterfront, nestled in native bush and serving fresh, quality cuisine, the restaurant is the perfect place for a lunchtime escape from the CBD. Who knows, you may even spot a kookaburra.
