About SARDINE Eatery + Bar

Championing fresh, locally caught seafood, SARDINE Eatery + Bar on Esplanade in Paynesville reels in guests hook, line and sinker. The brainchild of former Vue de monde Chef Mark Briggs, SARDINE boasts a trendy palette of pale grey, blond wood, geometric pendents and splashes of greenery, setting the scene for diners to enjoy an ever-changing menu, paired with local and international wines. Kick start an ocean journey with Port Phillip whitebait and jalapeno aioli, or freshly shucked oysters with shallot vinegar; while mains present as dishes like Gippsland Lakes eel, apple, watercress and horseradish. Those with heartier appetites may opt for half roasted duck, confit leg, peaches and smoked ox tongue; before a dessert of honey and macadamia parfait, salted caramel and honeycomb.
