The Box on the Water Overview

Ettalong locals flock to The Box on the Water restaurant and lounge bar for absolute waterfront dining in contemporary style, found ocean-side of The Esplanade at the recently re-developed Ettalong foreshore. In all weather, soak up panoramic views across soft sands and sheltered bay waters dining at a leisurely pace, seated underneath the lush fern fronds that hang from the ceiling in black pots, while surrounded by a smart casual environment reflective of the nature outside. Fat Poppy coffee, craft beer, cocktails and antipasto share plates are just a few items that can be enjoyed before mains of fresh caught seafood and succulent meats. Opt for the octopus confit or Kangaroo carpaccio before a larger plate of Atlantic salmon with pearl barley tabbouleh, rocket and minted chimichurri.

Best Known For
