With gorgeous harbour views to set the scene for a hearty, cooked-to-perfection roast, Ostro is the place to be every Sunday during winter.

The heart-warming aroma of a Sunday Roast is one of the those nostalgic dining pleasures, but creating that perfect crispy pastry-wrapped Beef Wellington, or a succulent piece of pork coated with crispy crackling, requires culinary skills that Grandma took to the grave.

Luckily for us, the Ostro Sunday roast returns with delicious vengeance, and the end-of-the-week culinary tradition is even better with a selection of roasts, an array of sides, and a Bloody Mary trolley.

Choose from the following options:
Prime steer scotch with pickled roasted onions and confit garlic  $39pp
Free-range pork belly with apple sauce, pickled apples and watercress  $39pp
Beef Wellington (for two people, pre-order is essential) $98 for 2pp

All meals served with a Yorkshire pudding, roasted root vegetables, seasonal greens and a variety of condiments and sauces.

Match your meal to a delicious Bloody Mary that’s slicker than your average.
Bloody Mary: Chili-infused 42 Below vodka, Barros Ruby port, Lea Perrins Worcestershire, Kaitaia Fire, salt and pepper, $16

Maria Sangria: Tequila, orange juice, chili salt, Lea Perrins Worcestershire, Kaitaia Fire, salt and pepper, $16

Smoking Snapper: Tanqueray, Smoked hickory sauce, Creole salt, Lea Perrins Worcestershire, Kaitaia Fire, $16

Half Mast Mary (low alcohol, served short): Wasabi-infused 42 Below vodka, Lea Perrins Worcestershire, Kaitaia Fire, salt and pepper, $14
