Saint George Dining

Saint George is a contemporary dining spot offering bistro style cuisine with modern flavours and the menu changes seasonally to ensure they’re using the best of what Sydney has to offer.

This relaxed space offers all day dining with brunch options by day and an evening menu too. We’ve attempted to visit by day but found the staff uninviting but the service was excellent and more accommodating by night.

The menu comes from hatted and Michelin star credited Chef James Metcalfe, the menu featuring seafood and protein based dishes as well as vegetarian offerings. We took advantage of a first table 50% off offer, and visited with friends, which meant we ordered quite a number of dishes to get a good sample of the menu.

Beginning with the Leek and Parmesan croquettes, a crispy outer shell and tasty filling, as well as the well seasoned beef tartare and the smoked egg emulsion, which offered a creative spin on this dish.

A highlight was the chicken liver parfait which had a nice flavour enhanced by the Pedro Ximenez and served with toast. Simple but quality ingredients.

The salad of golden beets was a pretty dish, with the creamy burrata topped with pickled peach and shiso and pine nut dressing.

The cured kingfish with mango and miso emulsion, green papaya, and Asian herbs was refreshing but could have done with some citrus.

The pan fried potato gnocchi looked beautiful, with house whipped ricotta, pea purée, radish, and chervil butter and was a good vegetarian option. It was lovely but the flavours needed a bit more punch.

For the main, we shared the 12 hour Milly Hill Lamb Shoulder, which was nice and tender since the 12 hours enhances the flavours of the lamb, accompanied by fried zucchini flowers, capers and lemon dressing.

All in all it was a good dining experience, the food is good, the space is comfortable and the service attentive.
