Review - Bar 100

Barely suppressing a giggle, I enter the Rawson Institute for Seamen, and am struck once more by the architectural beauty of the multilevel space.


My last visit coincided with their well-attended launch, complete with naughty nautical performance from Jessica Mauboy.

I’m pleased to report the focus on live music has remained, with the warm, textural tones of Duan & Only weaving through the dining room.

While he croons an excellent cover of Basement Jaxx's Romeo, I avail myself of an equally syrupy red: Mudgee's 2007 Cirillo 1850 Grenache ($90/bottle).


Guessing it’ll sing with Twice Cooked Duck ($32) I order a plate, but next time I’d stick to burgers and pizza.


Our personable waiter Liam agrees: “On Friday nights the burgers walk out the door!


The Bar 100 Beef Burger ($18) drops to ten bucks on Friday nights, but it’d be hard to beat even at full price, if the small exemplar served up in Three Sliders ($21) is anything to go by.


Slightly dry Pork Bites ($14) with chilli salt and maple syrup were bettered by...


...a thin, white based Funghi Bianci ($21) generously dotted with mushrooms, garlic and truffled pecorino.


The second best thing I ate was an ultra-creamy Panna Cotta ($12), slipped onto my table by the forward-thinking Liam.
