Clovelly is a beautiful beachside town situated in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. It is a great spot to visit if you want to head to the beach for a swim or do the coastal walk or have a beer at the local pub.
However if you are looking for somewhere to have a meal, look no further than Clovelly Social House. Located close to the beach and opposite the pub, you will find parking easily and it’s also free. Clovelly Social House offers a relaxed dining experience, quality food and a great place to catch up with friends and family, or just dine with that special someone. Clovelly Social House is open for breakfast lunch and dinner and on this occasion we visited for dinner.
This place could be described as a cafe by day, bistro by night. At night, the food on offer is a good mix of modern Australian/Mediterranean/Middle Eastern. With a new winter menu that will help embrace the cool weather, to be enjoyed with a nice glass of wine from their list.
The mixed board is a must and a great option to share. This board is a tasty mix of salmon croquettes, lamb kafta, grilled haloumi chorizo and mushroom arancini. The sauce served with the mushroom arancini was so good it should be bottled.
For our mains, we shared the pan fried gnocchi served in a delicious creamy truffle sauce and we almost put in a requst for some bread to mop up any sauce left behind because we loved it so much. We also shared the crispy skin salmon which had a middle eastern flare and a bit of a spice kick to it.
Thankfully we managed to spare some room for dessert, the tiramisu was nice but the blueberry cheesecake literally took the cake. It is worth visiting Clovelly Social House for this alone. It is a lighter version of cheese cake that is not overly dense, it was a beautiful dessert with a creamy cloud like texture and one of our favourite desserts of the year thus far.
The staff at Clovelly Social House were friendly and hospitable and you will enjoy your visit here.
