Salmon and Bear is a a casual eatery in Zetland, Sydney, across the road from the East Village shopping precinct. You can park in the shopping centre for 2 hours for free and head to the restaurant care free.
It is a fish eatery which cooks the fish over charcoal in a Spanish Mimbrasa oven which gives the seafood a nice smokey flavour. This also gives you the sense of having your dinner at a campfire, and with the restaurant decor feeling like a log cabin, so it is veryread more
Grizzly bears stand in the shallows each season when the Salmon swim upstream and literally pop into their mouths - that's how these predators fish for their prey - by mere fluke. That's the significance of the name of the joint if your'e ignorant to that like I was - we're in Australia for crying out loud. Essentially, the venue is all about seafood with a new catch of the day. We were fortunate enough to sample a good portion of the menu to understand the S&B story from our host / manager, Jake and Chefread more
Open bar, a North American cabin style fit out and a menu of some of the most exotic sea creatures with daily catches of the day!
I've been to the one at Newtown and had to come visit the source of the magic at their premiere location. The open kitchen was a great centrepiece and the moosehead and truckie caps are the same ones used to decorate both stores. I like that – new location with old familiarity, and if you've been to both, you feel like you are in goodread more
We've been to Salmon and Bear before and like it a lot. It's a wood cabin styled place, a lot smaller than. newtown but same styling, menu and drinks. We ordered the grizzly plate; blue eyed cod (but they didn't have it so they came and told us and we got the tuna). The tuna was beautifully cooked, a nice flavour to it. We picked the grilled vegetables and peri peri sauce on this instance. But you can get sweet potato fries (as we usually do) or a number of other choices. Also got a prawn taco (tempura) with cabbage and a nice tangy sauce. A great place for people who enjoy healthy food and seafood and good prices and fast service. The staff were super nice.
