Hurricanes Grill & Bar is probably where you want to go if you're after a protein packed meal - with a view.
I've been to Hurricanes in Harbourside 3 times now, and each time the food, service and experience has been totally consistent. It's a place to catch up with friends and family who don't judge you for using your fingers while eating and who don't mind sharing.
Last weekend I headed here again whilst running errands in Pyrmont with Mr N, found ourselves thinking of lunch options at 4pm. With a large feed in mind, Hurricanes seemed the best bet to settle the hunger. Whilst we were lucky enough to get a table without booking, it was only because we were there at 4pm on a Saturday, if you're looking for a table during peak hours, book or you'll be disappointed.
Our waiter gave us a table on the balcony outside overlooking the harbour - which was a nice surprise, before reciting the specials of the day. We ordered the rib eye (medium rare) and a rack of lamb ribs, with chips and side sauces to share. the food was served in about 20mins and had generous serving sizes.
Whilst Mr N believed the rib-eye was overcooked for medium rare, I enjoyed it more than the lamb ribs which were delicious but very fatty for my liking. The chips were crisp and tasty, however I wish you could pick a 'salad' options for your sides (you can currently only pick chips or baked potato). Everything else went down a treat and we retreated into a food coma. Whilst this restaurant is pretty solid all around, I'd only head here if I was in the area. Needless to say, I've never heard anything bad about it from anyone, yet.
Highlight: Consistent food, good for gatherings
Lowlight: Not exactly hip pocket friendly
