Fiending for fresh fish but craving something more sophisticated than battered whiting and chippies at the spit? Say no more fam, Pier 33 has docked in the Mooloolaba Marina to bring us the Sunshine Coast’s newest destination restaurant and bar.
With Head Chef Simon Taylor at the helm, Pier 33 is serving up fresh, coastal flavours on its modern share plate menu – with an emphasis on local, sustainable produce.
Netting customers with its sophisticated nautical theme, the seaside restaurant is the perfect escape for weekend warriors and locals alike. Linger over a long lunch or take in the sunset over chargrilled sardines with lemon cocktail in hand.
Looking for something more substantial? Order the Milly Hill Lamb Shoulder, slow cooked for 12-hours with saltbush and garlic or the market fish tail and scampi with Smallfry Verjuice and caper butter. Really want to sink your teeth into something different? Order the crispy fish wings – trust us, these crunchy little treats are like nothing you’ve ever tasted before.
Next time you’re coastal, pull on your floaties and dive into something totally different at Pier 33.
