BLACKWATER
Sydney, NSW

A favourite with the locals from the Sutherland Shire, Blackwater is on the northern end of the Captain Cook Bridge at Taren Point. Blackwater is the place to anchor for sumptuous modern Italian cuisine. Decked out in dark wood panelled walls, clean lines and vast expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass, every table has a view of Sans Souci's serene stretch of the Georges River.

DETAILS
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Dining at Blackwater is an elegant affair. Decked out in dark wood panelled walls, clean lines and vast expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass, every table has a view of Sans Souci’s serene stretch of the Georges River. By day, the water is a dreamy deep blue, plied by pleasure cruisers and the occasional whizzing speedboat. But it’s the night-time vista that this restaurant is named for – dark, glistening and seductively lit by the lights of luxury homes on the river’s opposite bank. At night it’s intimate and romantic, and composed and businesslike during mid-week lunches.

Scott Navas’s rustic cooking is infused with the passion of a chef who’s learned from the best. He tends towards tastes from Italy’s southern region, utilising flavours that are clean, restrained and distinctly traditional, yet not without contemporary finesse. The veal is spectacular, baked through with oozingly rich taleggio cheese and paired with king prawns and asparagus. Naturally, all pastas are made in-house – try the papparadelle with lamb ragu. For seafood lovers, the misto di mare overflows with mussels, bugs, prawns, calamari and scallops in a tomato and white wine sauce.
