Whalebridge’s head chef, Will Elliott

Sitting pretty on the promenade, with a sideways glance at Sydney Opera House and eye-to-eye with the Harbour Bridge, our deliciously French restaurant is poised perfectly on the water’s edge.

We celebrate the sea in dishes brimming with its bounty: cold briny oysters, plateaux de fruits de mer, and our house specialities bouillabaisse de Marseille and lobster thermidor.

Ours are classic bistro dishes for long lunches and laughter. They sing with fresh flavours, lightly touched – deliciously effortless.

But it’s only easy when you know how. As the great French chef Joel Robuchon said: “The simpler the food, the harder it is to prepare well.”

Whalebridge’s head chef, Will Elliott brings 
a serious pedigree (Melbourne’s Cumulus Inc., London’s St John and Sydney’s Restaurant Hubert) and love for French cuisine. He’s 
a master of precision, finesse and craft.

How close to the water? You can blow a kiss to passing boats and see their lights wink back. Or reach for the moon as it shimmers above the grand arches of the world’s most famous bridge.

It’s so romantic the sunset can’t stop blushing. And by day, sous le soleil, with sunlight dancing in your Champagne glass, Whalebridge is a little pop of Paris by the Pacific.

Some like it haute, but Will’s touch is light and deft: perfection without pretention. And that, mes amis, is the spirit of Whalebridge.
