RICK STEIN AT BANNISTERS

Inspired by scenic Mollymook and now open in stunning Port Stephens, Rick Stein at Bannisters is the perfect location for true lovers of freshly caught seafood and great wine.

FRESH SEAFOOD, SIMPLY COOKED AT BANNISTERS

Incredible seafood simply prepared is the hallmark of a Rick Stein kitchen. Our dedicated team of chefs use nothing but the finest locally sourced ingredients from ocean to plate every day, and every aspect is crafted with the passion and excitement that defines Rick’s cooking style.

The Bannisters experience, born in Mollymook, and now arriving in vibrant Port Stephens is deeply connected to Rick and Sarah Stein’s natural affinity with our unique Australian coastline. We focus on putting the produce at the forefront to create simple dishes, cooked to perfection and bursting with flavour.

Whether you choose south coast style or the laidback luxury of the north coast, you are choosing freshly caught and beautifully prepared seafood combined with a wide-ranging wine list to complement every course. Our friendly front-of-house team is always on hand to recommend the perfect flavour combinations.

RICK & SARAH STEIN

“Since opening Rick Stein at Bannisters in Mollymook nearly ten years ago, Rick and I have loved having a seafood restaurant overlooking the beautiful coast of Mollymook. We’ve long thought it would be exciting to open another location, and then we found Port Stephens, right on the doorstep of some of Australia’s best seafood. Our new restaurant, opening in September 2018, will feature vaulted ceilings and spectacular bar, complete with panoramic views of Port Stephens Bay. Rick and Mitchell Turner, our Head Chef, are creating a menu to celebrate the region. We can’t wait to see you enjoying platters of Local Oysters and Prawns on the deck.

 

Whether you are heading North or South, you’ll be sure to find Rick’s signature dishes, influenced with my love of Australian Seafood. We hope to see you there.

- Sarah and Rick Stein.”

PAUL GOODENOUGH HEAD CHEF MOLLYMOOK

Paul Goodenough is a Cornwall native and Rick Stein protégé from their days together in St Petroc’s Bistro, and later the iconic Seafood Restaurant.

From Padstow to Mollymook, Paul arrived in Australia in 2011 for what began as a six-month trip and transformed into the Head Chef position at Rick Stein at Bannisters.

Paul now calls Mollymook home and when he isn’t running the show in the kitchen, he loves nothing more than a surf and a cold beer.
