Enjoy coastal cuisine at Paper Daisy
Despite only opening its doors one week ago, Paper Daisy at Halcyon House in Cabarita, already has tongues wagging following the appointment of one of Australia’s most promising chefs, Ben Devlin, formerly chef de cuisine at Brisbane’s Esquire and the globally-acclaimed Noma in Copenhagen.
Perched overlooking the stunning sun-bleached Cabarita coastline, Paper Daisy is a culinary celebration of this unique part of the world and offers confident coastal cooking in a relaxed setting. The ethos here is one of sophisticated simplicity, characterised by the restaurant’s signature dishes; pippies with lemon myrtle, butter and warrigal greens, Paperbark grilled cod with seaweed and Blue Swimmer crab with soft tofu, citrus and buckwheat.
Providing the perfect setting for languid lunches and dinners that roll through the night, the fare is intended to be satisfying, thoughtful and deeply memorable. Paper Daisy is built around a bespoke wood-fired grill and features produce from the organic garden including native bush foods, greens and herbs, reflecting the venue’s cuisine manifesto which is produce-driven and with an accent on health. The restaurant forms part of Halcyon House, which is one of Australia’s most unique beachside hotels, perfect for a little weekend getaway.
