Set on 2000 square metres, the design and layout of this expansive venue is a true testament to owner Sonja Gastevich’s passion for quality and choice. It’s immediately evident from the modern European style décor through to the impressive
range of international beers and wines – and of course the menu.
There’s an extensive and eclectic range of dishes on offer which Sonja says, reflects the cultural diversity of patrons throughout the locale. Of course with this comes the need to ensure the authenticity and quality of every dish, something the Currambine Bar & Bistro does effortlessly.
We started off with the highly recommended taste plate, a delicious platter of semi-dried tomato dip, balsamic and extra virgin olive oil, mushroom arancini, olives, feta, chorizo and breads. As taste plates go, we’d be hard pressed to find a more fresh, moreish offering than this. The succulent twice cooked Canadian maple pork belly was so beautifully tender; it fell apart at the touch of a fork. But of course, no pork belly is complete without the perfect pairing of crispy pork crackling, and this dish did not disappoint. Served with delicious red apple chutney, a creamed green, potato rosti and crispy pancetta, this mouth-watering dish is firmly fixed as my new personal favourite.
Wandering throughout the venue, stumbling upon a very stylish and spacious function room, complete with adjoining toilet facilities and projector facilities – ideal for meetings and conferences.
Boasting a spacious restaurant, main bar, sports bar and swanky cocktail lounge, this venue really does have it all.
However the real treat here was, perhaps, the revelation that great top-notch, quality food and generous portion sizes are not mutually exclusive – something the Currambine Bar & Bistro seem to delight in proving.
