Warners Bay: Sephardim
Sephardim is an intimate Middle Eastern and Mediterranean inspired mezze bar and grill just around the corner from The Esplanade.
The softly-lit space offers a cosy atmosphere to enjoy a meal with family and friends. The menu encourages guests to share, with a wide selection of mezze dishes to choose from, such as dips and flatbread, Egyptian spiced fried cauliflower, falafel and chargrilled squid.
Larger share plates include a hearty lamb shank risotto, duck leg ragout and brown rice mixed with lentils, almonds, carrots and cinnamon-spiced sultanas. For groups of four or more there’s a lavish banquet starting from $45 per person.
Tasty desserts include a Persian love cake served with pistachio, ricotta and fresh cream. Sephardim has an excellent offering of Spanish and Australian wines and some very tempting cocktails including the unique Turkish Delight cocktail with vodka, crème de cacao, parfait amore, rose and sugar syrup.
Open Tuesday to Saturday from 5.30pm.
