Even if you don't book a seaplane, or arrive by yacht, the trek needed to reach this secluded Hawkesbury River boatshed turned historic restaurant reaps unexpected rewards. Where else can one savour pitch-perfect entrées such as figs served with burrata and pea juice, or Moreton Bay bugs napped with lemon hollandaise, under the gaze of a curious lizard? Or dine on deftly seared hapuku in a light bisque tinged with star anise and lime as kookaburras convene nearby? Fauna aside, there is much to admire about French native Guillaume Zika's artful and refreshingly restrained menus. Smoky parmesan lifts pretty yellow beetroot orzo to star status. A pure white ball of meringue filled with honeyed lemon curd is a fine way to finish. Gentle breezes accompany the dégustation and top-drawer global wine list, and the service is equally pleasant. Lucky boaties can tie-up at the jetty but, whatever your transport mode, go.
