Manta & MOLO Bring Back Lobster Served Two Ways For The Winter

Eat, Restaurants, Sydney / 11 July 2023

Indulge in a whole 1kg live Port Stephens Lobster at these two exceptional seafood restaurants on Woolloomooloo Wharf.

Nestled in the heart of Sydney, Woolloomooloo Wharf stands as a cherished dining destination for those seeking an exquisite culinary experience coupled with picturesque waterfront views. As the sun goes down, the ambiance becomes truly enchanting, offering a serene backdrop of boats gracefully docking and departing as you enjoy a meal. Within this vibrant dining strip, Manta and MOLO are among our favourites. These restaurants are proudly owned by the visionary restaurateur, Rob Rubis, who has cultivated a reputation for delivering exceptional seafood offerings.

One of the factors that set Manta and MOLO apart is their close association with Fisherman’s Wharf Seafood in Port Stephens, another business under Rob Rubis’ wing. This fishery delivers a daily supply of the freshest and most sustainable seafood to the restaurants. With a commitment to quality, they offer a truly unique “trawler to table” experience, ensuring that guests can savour the finest flavours of the ocean.

Both Manta and MOLO are set to captivate your taste buds with an irresistible winter special. The centerpiece of this culinary affair is the whole 1kg live Port Stephens Lobster for two, which makes a triumphant return to the menu at the exceptional price of $140, a significant reduction from its regular price of $300. Indulging in this lavish offering is a true delight, as it is served in two delightful preparations. The first is a ½ Lobster Pasta Mafalda with dashi, ginger, and tomato. The second preparation showcases the lobster in all its grilled glory, accompanied by the renowned Manta truffle fries and your choice of delectable sauce. With each succulent bite, you will discover why Manta and MOLO have earned their esteemed reputation for serving seafood of unparalleled quality and flavour.

While Manta presents a feast of exceptional seafood dishes, including delicacies such as baked oyster thermidor, tempura tiger prawns, Balmain bug paccheri, and chargrilled king prawn skewers, MOLO offers a taste of Italian summer that will transport you to the enchanting shores of the Mediterranean. Complemented by a meticulously curated cocktail list and an award-winning wine selection, MOLO has rightfully earned its reputation as Sydney’s very own slice of Italy.

The enchanting waterfront setting of these two venues, coupled with the freshest seafood sourced directly from Port Stephens, ensures an extraordinary dining experience this winter!
