Mosman is a fantastic city escape; although only moments from Sydney’s Central Business District (CBD), the physical detachment of the city by the Sydney Harbour Bridge enables a cool and calm atmosphere in this cross-harbour suburb. With an upmarket, laid-back Aussie kind of vibe, dining is one of the best elements of Mosman. Here are the top eats in this North Shore neighbourhood.

Basil Nut Asian Kitchen

Restaurant, Asian, Fusion, Gluten-free, Vegan, Vegetarian

This modern Asian cafe and restaurant is one of Mosman’s most coveted dining destinations. The man behind this dining experience is Chef of Basil Nut Asian Kitchen, who, although has Chinese heritage, was born in Thailand and raised in Sydney. Drawing inspiration across culinary experiences, guests can enjoy a colourful and exciting menu of Asian fusion dishes.

Bistro Moncur

Bistro, Restaurant, French, European, Gluten-free, Vegan, Vegetarian

This classic French bistro is a neighbourhood staple. Serving up fine French cuisine in a colourful and unpretentious environment is what Bistro Moncur is all about. Set in a stunning glass house with French doors, bistro qualities and an award-winning wine menu, this is the perfect place for weekend lunches or dinner dates.


Restaurant, Asian, Japanese, Gluten-free, Vegan, Vegetarian

August The Old Place

Restaurant, Australian, Gluten-free, Vegan, Vegetarian

The Fourth Village Providore

Restaurant, Italian, European, Street Food, Gluten-free, Vegan, Vegetarian

The Fourth Village Providore is a lively Italian joint serving up authentic food in a European trattoria-setting. The bi-weekly changing menu draws inspiration from traditional dishes, passed down from generation to generation. There is also an authentic wood fired pizza oven producing some of the most delicious slices in Mosman; Sydney Magazine has even called it ‘One of Sydney’s top ten Pizzas’.

Mosman Noodle & Dumpling House

Restaurant, Asian, Gluten-free, Vegan, Vegetarian

Mosman Noodle & Dumpling House is one of those places that could easily go unnoticed on a stretch of shops in a city-side suburb, but once discovered is the ultimate go-to. It is fast, fresh, family-run and does some of the best Asian cuisine North of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
