Waterside grazing doesn’t get more downright appealing than at Jetty, where the only thing that beats the snacks and drinks is the view.
Dolphins. Tick. A party boat picking up from the old Rottnest ferry terminal at the tip of your fork. Tick. Sparkles on the water, a blackboard of specials and a menu that boasts the best of WA’s seafood and more. Tick, tick tick. Jetty has it all. Don’t be fooled by the look of the corrugated iron shed from the road, or the industrial concrete floors. Not only is the space nicely appointed, it’s the perfect place to get a waterside brunch, lunch or even just to sit and eat chips and drink a glass of wine or an artisan brew.
It has a menu that covers everything from cauliflower croquettes with a delectable quince ketchup to flash-fried Shark Bay prawns with a spicy Egyptian butter and crumbled Ritz crackers.
Jetty (of course the clue is in the name) has water views in spades. It has bifold doors that let the outside in, and it has a menu that covers everything from cauliflower croquettes with a delectable quince ketchup to flash-fried Shark Bay prawns with a spicy Egyptian butter and crumbled Ritz crackers.
Order at the bar from the cheerful staff – if they’re a little harried, it’s easy to forgive minor slips when the rotisserie free-range chook is this juicy, the accompanying gravy that buttery. To finish, you could do far worse than a perfectly wobbly orange panna cotta, its sweet creaminess balanced with delicately poached rhubarb.
