Pippies by the Bay
Located within Flagstaff Hill maritime village, this contemporary space overlooks the ‘best view in the world’ through Norfolk pines to the sea. As its name implies, it does have a good smattering of seafood on its menu – local crayfish being a standout in season (November to April). The fisherman’s platter of assorted seafood is enormously popular, featuring oysters, prawns, scallops, calamari, squid and whiting. For carnivores, there is also a good selection of steaks, salads and pastas such as homemade gnocchi and cannelloni.
