Let's hear it for constancy; perhaps an underrated virtue in Sydney restaurants. The tables have been refreshed with new zinc tops, but the penny-round tiles are still here and the focus on no-fuss cooking with local and often organic produce happily remains, too. Sean Moran's love of flavour is evident in corn chowder littered with chunks of pork and prawn, a flourish of smoky chilli oil linking the lot. No one cooks a chook quite like Sean's and the version with currants, farro and cavolo nero is a study in simplicity and technique. Ice-cream studded with candied orange and flakes of mandarin granita, crowned with an excellent florentine, meanwhile, illustrates that desserts don't need to be overwrought to be great. If it's stitched-up fine dining you seek, this isn't the place - rather drink up the warm, unfussed service, inhale the briny sea air and enjoy what continues to be one of this city's loveliest dining experiences.
