Rick Stein has put his name - and one of his trained chefs - into the renovated Bannisters. A simple classic fitout sports dressed tables and chairs, in some cases rather close to each other, to create a relaxed unpretentious space. As you'd expect Rick Stein's menu draws on the strengh of local seafood, occasionally often adds the flavours of SE Asia, and ends up with dishes you're happy to drive from Sydney for. There has been criticism that the food is old-fashioned, but fine seafood handled well is what Rick Stein has always been about ... and fashion often leads to more style than substance. This may not put Mollymook on the map the way he did with Cornwell's Padstow, but it's a great restaurant to have on the culinarily under-endowed South Coast.
