Pilu's is one of my favourite restaurants in the world and perfect for that occasion when you want to take a special someone for a private romantic dinner or a family and friends special dinner. Last night it was my birthday and we dined watching the surfers on the waves in the twilight. We are beach people and foodies and love Italian seafood and fine wine... and the Pork special lived up to expectations as always. Perfect food in a perfect spot on a beautiful evening

About Pilu At Freshwater

A sight for sore eyes… Pilu offers the best of both worlds: vibrant, thrilling, sunshiny flavours from chef Giovanni Pilu’s Sardinian homeland, combined with some irresistible Sydney sand and surf. This award winning Italian restaurant set on Freshwater Beach is a sight for sore eyes. Walk up the stairs of the grand weatherboard beauty and you’ll feel like you’re visiting your friend's beach house for dinner. Sit down in the window seat with point blank views of the beautiful beach with some crumbed smoked eel balls with baby mussels and you’ll quickly remember that you’re in the very capable hands of Pilu himself, with his years of expertise and modern flair making its way into each and every dish. Pilu has character and charm but oozes warmth and comfort. The desserts are almost as breathtaking as the views so do yourself and favour and order the corbezzolo honey mousse, spiced sponge, roasted macadamias and a Sardinian beer sorbet. It will be true icing on the cake after a memorable meal and superb service. Best dish: corbezzolo honey mousse.
