  • Above Par is a sleek 60-seater bistro in the heart of the CBD, serving homestyle Levantine dishes from lunch and well into the evening.

  • Sitting on the shores of Lake Macquarie, this 350-seat restaurant's striking architecture competes with both a lengthy menu and water views for attention.
