Sea Level, The Kingsway, Cronulla

Sea Level, The Kingsway, Cronulla
Saturday 10 December, 2005

I'm ashamed to say I've never been to Cronulla. Of all the nights I was to be initiated to The Shire, Cronulla was the centre of a media frenzy due to racial tensions and the bashings of two Cronulla life guards earlier in the week.

On Saturday night there was a big police and ambulance presence in anticipation of the rumoured 'war' between locals and non-locals. I'm pleased to report nothing happened and Cronulla was quite tame.

Sea Level is located right on North Cronulla beach - it has prime position & is surrounded by several cafes/ restaurants. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table on the elevated level. As my friends gave the toast, 'Welcome to Cronulla' our waiter remarked about it being my first time and jokingly stated, 'Where are you from - the Northside?' Laughing at the ridiculousness of the situation we ordered;

- damper with sides of pesto and garlic butter
- pear, walnut, rocket & blue cheese salad
- seafood platter with lobster

What a feast - everything was delicious. The damper was fresh and served warm, the pear salad was drizzled with balsamic and was the perfect accompaniment for our seafood platter. This was enormous - on the menu it is recommended for two people however we shared it between three and still had leftovers. It is definitely their signature dish as every table seemed to order it. It had a great selection of oysters (kilpatrick, mourney & natural), lightly crumbed calamari, scallops, prawns, battered fish, chips, lobster & balmain bugs. Wow!

The only downside is the noise, it is very noisy and you have to lean in to have a conversation. However, it's lively, the staff are welcoming and it was great introduction to Cronulla.
