Situated along the waters edge at Marina Mirage, Glass Dining & Lounge Bar has created the ultimate relaxed yet opulent atmosphere for its diners.
As you enter past the impressive glass wine rack display, you will be blown away by the stunning uninterrupted marina views. Floor to ceiling glass windows separate a luxurious indoor dining experience from the more relaxed deck dining.
Before grabbing a table we recommend starting your night with an espresso martini (best in town in my opinion) from the illuminated onyx bar and making yourself cozy amongst the soft caramel leather booths in the lounge. As you sip your cocktail, pick your dream yacht from the dozens waiting within dreamy gaze.
When it comes to dining, all of the dishes have been refined to have a unique identity and boldness. Glass Executive Chef Benjamin Armstrong has mastered his craft in kitchens across the world, at one point even being the head chef at a three Michelin star restaurant in France (ooh lá lá). For Glass, he has created a sophisticated and modern Australian menu utilising on the finest seasonal ingredients.
We tried one of their most popular dishes, the Thai style crispy pressed pork with sticky palm sugar, chilli & ginger caramel and infused with kaffir lime leaf and coriander and were pleased with the balance of rich and delicate flavours.
New to their menu is the pan-roasted barramundi. Served wrapped in grape vine leaves with a salad of shaved fennel then topped with purple potato chips and finished with a side of creamy fish fumé veloute. Impressed by it’s creamy and crunchy qualities, it’s a dish we will most definitely be back for (date night)!
This winter Glass has introduced a ‘Winter Warmers’ cocktail menu. With a mix of cocktails like mulled wine that will literally warm you, and a few others that will ‘warm the soul’, cozying up in the lounge is more tempting than ever! Glass Dining & Lounge Bar is also home to one of the tastiest whisky cocktails on the Coast, the Maple Old Fashioned. It’s so tasty we bet it will have you wishing for winter weather all year long!
