The best restaurants for Mother's Day in Sydney
It’s hard to imagine somewhere more pleasant to spend a long, lazy Sunday lunch than Chiswick in Woollahra. Wide open to their lush gardens, sharing plates with your mum while sipping on rosé is going to feel like heaven for all of you. On Mother’s Day they’re doing a four-course menu for $98.
The Grounds will be transformed with blooming flower arrangements, fun pop-ups and floral crowns. Mum will receive a cocktail on arrival before sitting down to a luxe three-course menu. There will also be live entertainment, a photobooth and a special gift for mum. Can't make it on Saturday? They'll also be hosting an event on the Sunday too.
Treat your mum to some of the best views in Sydney and the VIP treatment. Opera Bar will be hosting a pop-up Taittinger Champagne bar and the girls from I Scream Nails will be dishing out super cute manicures. Manicures and entry to the pop-up will cost $25 and bookings are essential.
Sokyo's Chase Kojima will be hosting an eight-plate lunch with matched wines. Kick off with Pacific oysters with plum wine granita, the work your way through ocean trout with wasabi salsa, cuttlefish tempura with tarragon ponzu, hand rolled sushi and more, before finishing with a decadent dessert course. The set menu is $125 per person with an optional wine pairing for $75.
This casual Italian restaurant comes from the Brescian-born-and-raised chef Alessandro Pavoni, who you maybe already be familiar with from his other restaurants, Ormeggio at the Spit and Chiosco by Ormeggio. For Mother's Day Pavoni will be doing a wood-fired family feast for $79 per person.
Q Dining is set to indulge mum with a three-course lunch. She'll get a glass of Veuve Ambal sparkling wine on arrival and her own bottle of L’Occitane perfume to take home. Add in floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the harbour and you've got a lunch that'll be sure to impress her.
This five-star Hunter Street spot will be offering a full ala carte menu. They will also be dishing out specially crafted housemade chocolates. There's salted caramel and passionfruit marshmallows, dark and stormy truffles, dark chocolate bark with macadamia and sesame and a Valrhona chocolate after dinner mints.
