Ahoy! This is hands down the nicest Adelaide beachfront seaside dining we can find. Expect secluded comfortable, casual, sophistication and million dollar ocean views. Oceanique is gorgeous, yet not for one second is it pretentious or un welcoming for families with children. The menus feature a large percentage of local and ethically sourced food, and the kids menu offers a quality twist on classics that kids will enjoy, minus the junk – but of course served with a drink and ice cream.
We could listen to Sam reel off those daily specials every day while we gaze at the turquoise St Vincent Gulf water and imagine we are in the Maldives……
You will find Oceanique situated on the waterfront adjacent the West Beach Boat Ramp, and essentially on top of the Adelaide Sailing Club. If you don’t have a reason to drive into this little pocket, you would not know it is here, but boy is it a bustling little hive of activity. Our kids loved watching boats come and go and the action from the sailing club below.
Bordered by ample free car parking behind the building and a picture perfect walking path and large beachfront lawn (yes, yes it is screaming for 700 cartwheels) – the offering inside is both ususpecting and of the most delightful quality. We love this place.
Open for brunch, lunch and dinner from Wednesday to Sunday, bookings are highly reccommended for meals, however you can also call in for a casual coffee under the ourdoor umbrellas or a drink at a high table on the balcony or indoors near the bar….. it’s a huge space and the seating options are numerous.
On our weekend visit we enjoyed an acoustic solo artist, adding to the beachy vibe.
Oceanique would make a perfect large celebration venue, special family occasion meal, or you know, just pop down for a feed or a coffee with your family and friends.
Expect to pay pub prices for far higher than pub standard fare, and impeccable service to match at this hidden gem.
Owned by locals Sam & Leticia Dunning and family. These guys know hospitality. They also own and manage the very popular Tramside Kiosk at Glenelg – perfect for a coffee, light snack and a play in the brand spanking new Wiggley Reserve Playground.
