Steamers Bar and Grill is situated at 1 Marine Drive, Wollongong, which holds one of the most stunning views over City Beach and Wollongong lighthouse.

Last year the restaurant won “Best Contemporary Australia Restaurant – NSW Regional” and came second in the national awards.

The menu has been crafted to explore the street food scene from around the world and delivers a collision of small and large plates inspired by these bold and dynamic local flavours.

The restaurant is inspired by the precinct’s food history. When the Illawarra was first settled, fresh produce was transported to Belmore Basin, before being loaded onto steamships bound for Sydney’s growing population. Both the organic and local character of the menu, along with the nautical styling of the décor is a nod to this industrial period, updated with a chic, contemporary twist.

Signature dishes include: Israeli spiced lamb, chili salted calamari, and Taijma wagyu tenderloin.

Like our a la carte menu, the wine selection was created with the same passion by their in-house sommelier, with special consideration for organically grown and bio-dynamic options.

Something to celebrate? Steamers bar and grill present the perfect destination for your next special event or dinner celebration. From organising celebration cakes and balloons to their mouth-wateringly generous group share menu and stunning large format dining tables.

Romain Bastianel

Restaurant Manager

With international experience in hospitality spanning 15 years, Brazilian Born, French-raised Romain Bastianel is driven by excellent service, regardless of his location. The gourmet globetrotter began his career in London, behind the bar at several of the city's top-shelf hotspots. In 2008, Romain moved to Brussels, Belgium, where his passion for winemaking fuelled his reputation as a leading sommelier within the city's fine dining scene.

But in a dramatic relocation, Romain moved to Australia in 2011 where he immediately gained local experience as Restaurant Manager and Sommelier at Sydney's Tastevin Bistro & Wine Bar, followed by Perth's No. 4 Blake Street. Most recently, he completed a three-year role as Restaurant Manager and Sommelier at Samuels Restaurant, Thirroul. Now, Romain brings a wealth of global experience into his "dream role" at Steamers Bar & Grill. Primed, and already feeling at home within the team, Romain is thrilled to provide every Steamers customer a stellar service standard.
