Oceanique unveils its exciting new plans for winter

Winter at Oceanique is set to feature its new seasonal menu that includes delicious new winter warmer cocktails and more!

Oceanique is a coastal gem that has delivered incredible offerings in the sunshine, but they are back to prove that it can be done in the shade.

The generous-sized venue hosts everything from weddings to 40th’s to providing a cosy brunch experience overlooking the ocean.

One of Adelaide’s biggest seaside restaurants has some of the best ocean views, but there’s so much more to this beachside gem than meets the eye.

Winter at Oceanique is set to feature its new seasonal menu that includes delicious new winter warmer cocktails, as well as offering a wine and oyster special every weekend throughout winter.

Kicking off its cosy season, Oceanique will be hosting a live music and oyster series every Saturday and Sunday throughout winter.

Saturday will see That Guy Gigs giving us all the feels with his acoustic set, playing all the bangers and any requests from 1 pm – 4 pm.

Brian Ruiz will play out your weekend on Sunday with another soulful acoustic performance from 1 pm – 4 pm.

Those sweet tunes will be accompanied by freshly shucked oysters served with a glass of Jim Barry’s Assyrtiko.

Named Adelaide’s best contemporary dining venue and best breakfast restaurant by the SA Restaurant & Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for Excellence, Oceanique is no slouch when it comes to its culinary prowess.

Oceanique’s nose to tail mentality makes sure that nothing is wasted and everything is flavourful.

The West Beach gem is owned and operated by Lucy Dunning, her brother Sam and his wife Leticia Dunning, Leticia’s mum Tina, and Tina’s partner Giuseppe (Joe). There’s more than 150 years’ experience between them: Sam and Joe ran The Store in North Adelaide together, Lucy and Leticia both worked in events at the National Wine Centre, and Sam worked on reopening The Stag and Maid and Magpie, to name a few.

There is nothing better than cosying up to a few winter warmer classics. Some of Oceanique’s favourites are its house-made soup made fresh each day, along with a locally sourced lamb shank served with creamy mash and thick gravy, mouthwatering chicken risotto and seafood pies; made with the catch of the day and encased in crispy pastry.

Sam expresses his own love for the linguine marinara, saying that it is “one of our favourites and it always gets heads turning”.

Not only do they have a cracking breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, but the team at Oceanique have answered our boozy prayers by adding specialty drinks to the existing cocktail menu.

You will struggle to choose between the Hot Toddy and the Spiced Cider. The Hot Toddy is a delicious mix of whiskey, honey, herbs and spices. Served hot, it’s traditionally drunk before retiring for the night and in cold weather. It can simultaneously put hairs on your chest, and put you to bed. Either way, we’re sold.

The Spiced Cider will take you on a trip to the top of the Swiss alps with one cup. It’s a warm hug on a cold winter’s day.

But if you ask Sam, you can’t go past an old-fashioned Bloody Mary in this weather. “It’s just so refreshing and you can have it at any point of the day,” Sam says.

The venue intends to tie together quality food, delicious cocktails, amazing music, and beautiful views into one restaurant that’s uniquely Oceanique.

You can find Oceanique at 9 Barcoo Rd, West Beach SA 5024
