Star of Greece

If you want to enjoy an afternoon down by the beach, why not visit Port Willunga? It is literally 40 minutes drive from the Adelaide CBD.  There is a restaurant called Star of Greece, named after the shipwreck back in the early 80s.  

A stunning view whether you're seated inside or outside of the restaurant, the restaurant itself is not very big so booking is recommended, especially on the weekends.  The restaurant doesn't have any fancy decorations, but gosh their food was no ordinary food.  

Compliments from the chef to begin with, raw fish with salsa on a chinese soup spoon.  Now they pride themselves on using local produce.  And you can probably guess that the menu changes due to season. 

I love my oysters, natural or close to natural would be my favourite way to enjoy them.  This time they were served with sesame soy vinaigrette, crispy fried with seaweed salad, citrus tobiko and wakame jelly.  The oysters were fresh and juicy.  Yum! 

One of the special entree, king fish sashimi.  I could just taste all the different elements to this dish.  It was fresh, it looked amazing and it was delicious!!  The size of the entree was perfect for me.  

Coorong fillet was served on a bed of broad bean salad with confit organge and a touch of parsley oil.  There is no better way to cook a nice piece of Coorong fillet but to pan fry it, opaque and flaky.  Perfect!

I have mentioned in my previous post, if I see duck on the menu I would definitely put duck near the top of my list.  I could not fault this dish at all.  Look at all those colours!  Pan roast duck breast and confit leg, buckwheat and pineapple.  The orange has been spiced and topped with spring leaves.  The duck breast was slightly pink in the middle, presented nicely, it was definitely a win win for me. 

I enjoyed dining at Star of Greece, one of the best restaurants down South Australian's coastline.  After lunch it's great to stroll down the beach, take a few photos and admire the beautiful surroundings.  We were lucky enough to watch a wedding that day, the famous iconic spot for couples to tie the knot.
