You can’t get fresher than this. Situated at the Fishermans Co-op in Wollongong, fish caught daily will swim their way onto the plates at Bombora Seafood Restaurant, where the breeze is up, the plates are full and the view superb. Bringing a touch of class to the local fish n chippery, Bombora perches high above the ocean with views spanning the local harbour. Watch the ships roll in as you tuck into super-fresh Pacific oysters or house-made Thai fish cakes. Pull up a seat on the restaurant’s expansive deck or admire the view from a sheltered spot inside. Open 8am to late seven days a week, Bombora is the perfect dining destination for all occasions.
The restaurant sources fresh seafood from local authorities, ensuring your meal is of the highest quality. Start the day with a champagne breakfast or “roaring Bombora” – scrambled eggs, sauteed prawns, smoked salmon and roasted Roma tomatoes all loaded atop toasted sourdough. For lunch or dinner try a tasty fusion of East and West with the local lobster grilled in lemon, garlic and chilli butter, served on a bed of Asian greens, jasmine rice and fresh herbs. Couples can test their appetites on the hot and cold seafood platter for two – featuring an array of underwater delights such as salt and chilli squid, smoked salmon, oysters, prawns and blue swimmer crab. With a small section of the menu dedicated to the nippers at the table, Bombora is the ideal venue for a family meal out. End the meal with a cup of organic tea or coffee as you soak up the gorgeous ocean views.
