The Royal Hotel Bar and Grill, Paddington

A bar and grill with a summery vibe

Upon entering the Royal Hotel, it appears to be your typical Aussie pub, with dark chocolate brown surfaces, bar stools and bar taps.

Walk upstairs and it’s a complete contrast in decor with marbled tables, fresh cut flowers and bright white interior. In addition to being able to order just your typical bar food, on the first level the food menu is far more extensive in terms of dishes and more refined too.

Petaluma Croser NV $12

Mt Difficulty Roaring Meg Pinot Gris $11 

The wine is actually not that pricey for the area.


Coffin Bay oysters + eshallot mignonette $3.50 each 

Between the mignonette and lemon I prefer just the fresh lemon over the vinegar condiment when enjoying freshly shucked oysters.


Hot wings + blue cheese dip $15

The hot wings are smothered in a lip-smacking spicy vinegar sauce and the  blue cheese dip has a great balance of funk and creaminess.


Fish tacos lettuce, chipotle + salsa (minimum order 3) $5.50 each

These soft tacos encased some smoky chipotle, delicate fish pieces and fresh tomato salsa – a squeeze of lime and they disappeared in no time.


Atlantic Salmon heirloom tomatoes, miso, eggplant + ponzu mayonnaise $27 

Ash’s salmon piece was cooked perfectly and with the diced eggplant, very pleasant.


Eye fillet 180g 150 day grain fed $30 with paris butter 

I chose paris butter to accompany my beef, the cylinders of parsley butter melting all over the caramelised, perfectly cooked fillet. The rocket salad was unfortunately limp and not dressed however the tomatoes were oven-roasted and sweet.


Banana split chocolate parfait, chocolate crack + banana ice cream $13 

Grilled bananas and an assortment of summer fruit is served with a decadent, mousse-y chocolate parfait – a light and delicious end to the meal.
