Sir D never likes to visit the same restaurant twice. Every time I ask him after a meal if he would return, he says, “I’d rather go someplace new” (unless it’s somewhere really amazing like Quay). So in the spirit of trying someplace new, we wander around Darling Harbour looking for a place to have a nice dinner before catching a movie at the IMAX and we stumble across Coast on the top level of Cockle Bay Wharf.
It’s still early on a Friday night so the restaurant is quite empty. It’s nice and spacious with views of Darling Harbour and the Harbouside Shopping centre on the other side. We’re seated at a table with a good view of the open kitchen and above us is a big light fixture which reminds me of ocean waves.
We order two mains and a side and while we wait we’re given some complimentary bread and olive oil to munch on. The bread is actually really good, so when the waiter asks if we would like some more bread, we happily say yes.
