DETAILS
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Lovers of a laidback "pub atmosphere" will really enjoy the Rose of Australia. It's a truly authentic Australian colonial pub downstairs with wood panelled walls and leadlight, while upstairs the well hidden fine dining room has a modern shape and soft lighting. Set in the suburban nook of Erskineville, the Rose is pitched well away from the hubbub of cosmopolitan King Street and provides a more peaceful location. At the bar you will warm up well with a few vodka cocktails and you may even find a semi-famous acoustic act playing or catch a burlesque show. Generally locals meet downstairs and chew the fat. Later they may move upstairs to have a quiet meal with friends in the dining room away from the lively front bar.

Dinner is a modern Australian affair, with Chef Byren Norton-Figtree creating gastro pub classics with a twist. An entree may consist of seared scallops atop celeriac puree with crisp pancetta, while beef sirloin on potato and horseradish cake with wilted spinach and red wine jus is just the main to relish with a glass of spicy Shiraz. Dessert is hard to pass up at the Rose, with passionfruit brulee and their creative chocolate tasting plate offering every single sweet indulgence you could hope to end a meal with. The menu changes seasonally and reflects the sort of food you grew up eating and still love. Sticky date pudding, anyone?
