Jonahs Restaurant - A special Lunch treat for Bigbear

Hi Everyone just a photo post today of a lovely lunch i had with BigBear a few months ago to celebrate his birthday! It's not very often that we go out for a fancy meal which means that whenever we do (special occasions) we both feel very spoilt!

Lunch was amazing! Because we came from Ettalong on the ferry, they offered pick up at the wharf and drop off after lunch as well, that was sweet - on the ride up i realised if we had tried to walk i wouldnt of made it up the very steep hill in my high heels :s It felt like we were going up and up and up a never ending steep winding road. But wow the view from our table was breathtaking (we didnt get a window seat but the view was just as nice)





Scallops with a Spanish onion and red wine compote, compressed grilled pineapple
with cardamom and pistachio vinaigrette $30


Half dozen Sydney rock served with lemon and raspberry vinegar mignonette $28



Hand cut sebago chips with rosemary and thyme salt. $12


Black-Angus Beef Scotch fillet, Rangers Valley
Polenta cake, broad beans and red wine jus $48



Kingfish and Crystal Bay prawns, S.A and Queensland
In a ginger and kaffir lime vegetable nage with baby spring vegetables. $48


Pre-dessert
passionfruit pannacotta



All about chocolate $16


Apple tart "like a Tatin" with Granny Smith and Calvados sorbet $18


Petite fours


My favourites were the scallops, the chocolate dessert, and the hand cut chips! Altogether the bill was high, and close by there was a table of 8 people so we were wondering how much their bill was ... four figured for sure !

After lunch we were invited out to the patio where there were blankets for us to sit and enjoy the view (it was a windy day so i took up the blanket offer) and then we were driven down back to the wharf to catch our ferry back to Ettalong.




Lunch was so nice, and i hope you enjoyed it Hun!
