Oceanique at Adelaide Sailing Club West Beach

Beach, Family Friendly Eats, Family Friendly Restaurants in Adelaide, West

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.

  • Since opening in November 2015 West Beach Adventure has grown to become one KiA's favourite family days out in Adelaide. Kids from pre school age right up to teens, and us adults are catered for with something for every one. West Beach Adventure doesn't have age restrictions, but height limits. For MegaClimb those above 1.2m are welcome with an adult, and those over 1.4m (and over 14yrs) can go it alone, which suits most kids of school age and up. The Kids Coursecaters for the youngest members of the family over 80cms. Little climbers can also launch themselves up to 8 metres on the MegaBounce trampoline and there are some swings suitable for little ones as well as some undercover games they can enjoy. MegaClimb The MegaClimb structure with it's Crows Nest tower is the tallest adventure activity in Australia! Harness up and tackle the 70 obstacles to the top. Play tennis in the sky, row a boat mid-air and make your way around a floating esky, BMX bike, and sky-high picnic table. It's great fun! I took my 5 year old daughter (121cms) and my 15 year old nephew and they both loved it! It's hard to find something…

  • Located outside Brunelli Café at West Lakes Shopping Centre this is a fab spot to sit and have a coffee and watch the kids play. Suitable for older kids and toddlers the playground does have something to cater for a mixture of ages. The main tower features 2 slippery dips for the kids to utilise and can only be accessed via ladder stairs or the bridge. Both require confident climbers. The enclosed silver tubular slide sits at the top with a shorter open slide a little closer to the ground. The play area features lots of lower climbing ropes for the little ones and there is a hidden sandpit under the tower. The bright blue stepping stones are a favourite with the little ones and are great for practicing balancing. In this area you will also find some tunnels for the kids to explore in, along with a bouncy animal. The playground is shaded, and there are toilets in the shopping centre but it is not fully fenced. You need to be mindful there is a busy road directly behind the playground. It is a great playground to visit before or after shopping or just to come for a play.…

  • Complementing the playground, the upgraded area at Apex Park caters for a wide variety of ages and is great for catch ups, parties, a general play or hit of tennis. The fully fenced playground features lots of equipment over a quite large area. It is a bark chip surface, so with considering if unsteady on your feet, and there is unfortunately no accessible play here. If that doesn't rule you out, It's a bloody great park worth driving out of your area for. Best ages, honest opinion, there is not a lot of play for the under 3 yo's to play independently and not much for the 9 yo + in the play ground, apart from the oversized nest swing. Personally it makes a nice change here to NOT have water play. Some of us don't like it, especially in winter. Featuring lots of small to mid scale climbing opportunities including stairs, mini rock climb wall, a rope spider web tower, a mini spinning climbing frame and lots more. You will also find normal swings and the oversized nest swing. Throughout the equipment the kids will find fun activity games that blend in along with a mini merry-go-round with 2…
