The restaurant at the Admiral's Inn is a must for Anglophiles and mariners. Soak up the centuries at the inside bar, where 18th-century sailors reputedly carved their ships' names on the dark timbers. Most diners sit on the flagstone terrace under shady Australian gums to enjoy the views of the harbor complex and trendy exhibition kitchen; yachts seem close enough to eavesdrop. The menu is limited but expertly prepared; consider ordering 2 or 3 appetizers tapas-style.
Specialties include ceviche, lobster toast and the pulled pork open sandwich with chipotle mayo and red onion marmalade.
