Simon Kardachi's (Melt, Press Food & Wine, The Pot, Osteria Oggi) 200-seater Melt outpost is the quintessential beachfront venue.

Its white, bright and breezy design from Studio-Gram lifts from the surroundings with accents of Cypress pine, coral-pink booths and sea-green tiling. Lush greenery from Emma Sadie Thomson snakes around the white timber trusses, and a Love Concrete bar is the setting for a serious line-up of local and European wines and beers.

The 70-strong staff includes familiar faces from Bread & Bone, Abbots and Kinney and Lost in a Forest. Chefs Henry Hobby and Kyle Booker have come over from other Kardachi venues Melt CBD, Press and The Pot.

The extensive menu features Melt's usual selection of pizza and small plates, with the addition of a few seafood options, naturally. Weekend brunch includes breakfast-style pizzas, mushroom ragu and Bloody Marys.

In the afternoon and evenings have a cocktail at the bar or wines on the deck; or a shared meal at one of the communal tables. For a more intimate experience, settle into a booth or window seat with floor-to-ceiling views of the sea.

Downstairs diner Sea Salt is a more casual affair; it pays homage to the old-school fish and chip shop, elevated with sustainable seafood, inspired dishes and suitably summery cocktails. Rooftop bar West joined the block in late-2018.
