How was it?
I am a lucky girl! To be living in such a beautiful city. To be able to bask in the sun and have lunch overlooking the harbour - very lucky indeed! After reading about Fort Denison on Not Quite Nigella, I just knew that I had to try it ASAP! I always thought that Fort Denison was the kind of place that would be very hard to get a table and it would be very pricey. But all I had to do was call up a week in advance and with the help of the Enliven promotion (buy 1 main meal, get 1 main meal free), it wasn't so pricey!
Firstly, a huge thanks to Queen Lizzie for being born, thereby giving us all a public holiday (yay!). To celebrate, DCM and I headed out on this surprisingly sunny day, to lunch on Fort Denison. We caught a ferry from Circular Quay, ($17 return from Captain Cook Cruises) which was a little bit of a thrill - soaking in the beautiful harbour.
When we arrived, we were promptly shown to our table and I thought, this has got to be the best location in town! We perused the menu and decided to order some bruschetta, DCM ordered the lamb shank, whilst I chose the fish pie. Huge portions. Very hearty and comforting.

You should definitely head out to Fort Denison, whilst the Enliven promotion is still on (it finishes at the end of July). The food was great and comforting, perfect for the winter chill. And the best part about the experience was the view! After lunch you can walk around and have a mini history lesson or just do funny poses with the canons (lol)! Fort Denison is open for breakfast/lunch from 10.30am-3.30pm. They also cater for functions and weddings!
