Having dinner at 3 Sheets in Hillarys Boat Harbour on a balmy Sunday night is a nice way to end the weekend.
We snagged an outside table and had fun watching children playing in the open area and on the beach. One of the hazards of al fresco dining at Sorrento Quay tends to be the seagulls that are brazen enough to swoop down as one is trying to eat. But 3 Sheets have come up with a fun and non-lethal way to discourage the scavengers – large water pistols, primed and ready to repel boarders at every outside table. Thankfully, the seagulls must have been full for the day as we had no visits from any feathered friends during our meal – much to my husband’s disappointment!
3 Sheets is at the south end of Sorrento Quay very close to the main car parks. The building itself, shared with sister restaurant, Portside, is rustic–looking with a wooden exterior. Inside is large with a variety of table sizes set up for 3 Sheets style – casual and relaxed dining.
It is great for families during the day and early evening -check for kids’ entertainment on a Sunday including animal balloons. Featuring the almost mandatory wood-fired pizza oven and local craft beers, there is something for everyone.
We were sharing dinner with our daughter and son-in-law, newly arrived from a cold and snowy Scotland and they loved the atmosphere at the Boat Harbour.
Our daughter ordered the pepper squid salad ($27), our son-in-law went for the 3 Little pigs ($24), my husband for the nachos ($24.5) while I had the Pork belly bites ($16) and a side of crunchy fries ($7).
The Pork belly bites are part of the starters menu and were really good covered in a black pepper caramel with chilli, crispy noodles and spring onions. The intriguingly named 3 little pigs consisted of a wood smoked frankfurter sausage, pulled pork, crispy bacon with a chipotle BBQ sauce on a long roll and fries. The pulled pork was a little tough but my son-in-law said he would order it again.
The Vegetarian Nachos consisted of veggie chili, cheese corn chips, black beans, cheese, guacamole, sour cream with lime and optional jalapenos. It was a big portion of food but my husband felt that it didn’t have much taste unless all the optional jalapenos were added.
There is loads of parking at Sorrento Quay and easy access to toilets inside the restaurant.
