LOCATION
Situated in the prime position of the marina, Wharf Woolloomooloo, Kingsleys Steak & Crabhouse has great day and night views across Woolloomooloo Bay to the City Skyline. On the Eastern fringe of the CBD it is an easy taxi ride or walk for lunch. At night it is a very quick and easy trip from the North Shore via the Cahill Expressway not to mention its easy access from the inner and eastern suburbs. Car parking is convenient and secure in Lincoln Avenue, adjacent to the Wharf.

FOOD & BEVERAGE
At Kingsleys, the steak philosophy is to serve premium quality beef in a simple manner, char-grilled and lightly seasoned, allowing the true flavour and texture to be appreciated. Whilst steak is the specialty (including Angus, kilo t-bones & wagyu), they also have a great selection of fresh seafood from all around Australia, including Mud Crab, Snow Crab, Sydney Rock Oysters and Yamba Prawns. The impressive wine list offers an extensive selection of Australian and New Zealand regional red and white wines, sure to impress any wine connoisseur.

FUNCTIONS
Kingsleys Steak & Crabhouse features versatile spaces suitable for group bookings and events. The private dining room and mezzanine level boast spectacular views of the city skyline and Woolloomooloo bay from floor to ceiling windows. The mezzanine level seats up to 27 people, whilst the private dining room accommodates 24.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
In the hospitality industry, where restaurants open and close quicker than you can say “under new management”, consistency is one of the most valuable commodities. Kingsleys Steak and Crabhouse, at Woolloomooloo Wharf, is one of the most reliable restaurants in Sydney. Night after night, meal after meal, Kingsleys delivers impressive food, great service and all in one stunning location.

Don’t be perturbed by the restaurant’s name, Kingsleys is a far cry from your classic two fisted steakhouse. Boasting a formal fine-dining restaurant setting, spread over two levels, the tables on the ground-level wharf are one of the restaurant’s most prized assets. Booked out almost every weekend, a wharf table at Kingsleys gives diners an uninterrupted 180 degree view of the city’s skyline and Sydney Harbour. The perfect destination for impressing tourists and out-of-towners.

It goes without saying that this meaty mecca certainly gives carnivores a cause for rejoicing, however Kingsleys Steak and Crabhouse impresses equally in the seafood department. An entree of salt and pepper baby octopus is crispy and tender, served with a sweet balsamic glaze that brings the dish together. A ceviche of wild kingfish, offers an interesting textual experience that is offset by crunchy prawns and a housemade mayonnaise. And while Kingsley’s is renowned for its sumptuous serves of QLD chilli mud crab, there was no way I was going past a 400 gram aged rib on the bone. Because, we must remember, rather than being just your average steakhouse, Kingsley’s is, in fact, THE steakhouse. With nothing else on the plate, the aged rib was served as is, without a piece of shrubbery to taint its meaty goodness. Initially questioning how I would get through such a large slab of meat, the aged rib was quietly devoured and all that was left on the plate was a meat-less bone. Anna Lisle
