Deep in a desolate cove of tranquility, the Echo boasts a picturesque view of the marina surrounded by the natural scene of green bushland and wildlife. The experience alone as you descend down the 100 or so metre staircase sets the tone of something quite special.
For starters we had the BRUSCHETTA which tells a bitter sweet story with the use of ricotta, avocado and tomato with a gentle weave of caramelised balsamic! The EYE FILLET in keeping with the luxurious theme plays on the old surf and turf which was cooked carefully at medium-well in a 'jus-like' diance sauce and topped with tiger prawns and accompanied with garden salad. THE SMOKED DUCK breast featured thick slices of breast. It's trimmings of beans tossed in a citrusread more
Total hidden Sydney restaurant on a beautiful green finger that just into the far reaches of Sydney Harbour. It has an inclinator entrance (how cool). Food is extremely competent, please-all modern Australian, running from a grilled prawn salad to smoked duck breast.
You just cannot beat this spot on the marina to sit back and enjoy your morning coffee. It is worth the drive to discover this oasis and eat your brunch next to the boats.
The coffee will please those who like it strong and you may even be lucky enough to get some barista art in your cup. I decided to customize my own brekkie choosing eggs anyway, bread and add ons. The serving was generous and you can't go wrong when you pick all your favorites. The Waffles and Eggs Benedict also looked delicious as they were delivered to nearby tables. Even in winter this spot gets so much sunlight that you could easily sit back and watch the morning go by.
We visited for breakfast but looking at the menu would love to come back for lunch! Pick a weekend and head to Echo on the Marina - you won't be disappointed!
It is really hard to return to a venue where you have had a poor experience. The experience leaves a foul taste in your mouth and you will always visit the second time with that first visit at the front of your mind. I am incredibly happy we did return to Echo on the Marina. Seeing vast improvements and eating a dish I would put in a Top 10 category is something that makes me very happy indeed.

Take a journey to Echo on the marina located on the serene Roseville water front. A licenced restaurant, as the name suggests situated on the marina. This place is what we have been looking for: a great location, food and service, not too expensive or pretentious
The beautiful setting making this restaurant suitable for any occasion, be it a nice breakfast, family lunch, a catch up with friends or for an event. If you drive, there are two locations to park, both with a short but scenic walk involved. If you aren't so mobile take a ride on the travelator. Take a boat if you have one or ifread more
