The Boathouse Group has just opened a new venue in Mona Vale

The Mona Social has just opened on the grounds of the Mona Vale Golf Club with sweeping views of the golf course and Mona Vale Beach. The venue with a country club meets Boathouse Group vibe sits above the golf club’s headquarters and is separate to the club.

As part of the group’s ever-expanding offering of elevated dining experiences, The Mona Social has an a la carte bistro restaurant connected to a casual bar with sports viewing areas, pool tables, an in-house golf simulator and tap beer. The bistro is open from 11:30am to late.

“Guests will walk in and immediately know that this is a Boathouse venue through its quintessential abundance of beautiful interiors, but rather than being a coastal theme it’ll have more of an inviting country feel with warm timber tones and lush greenery,” says Antony Jones, CEO of The Boathouse Group.

The Boathouse Group Head of Culinary, Mark LaBrooy, along with new Head Chef Cameron Johnston (Bathers Pavilion & Peterman), has developed a menu that reinvents classic bistro staples. In the bistro, menu highlights include the venison tartare with a zesty kick of horseradish, octopus or a beef tongue skewer, chargrilled prawns and garlic and kombu mussels.

For larger dishes, the menu will lean into modern favourites including red wine braised beef cheek served with Jerusalem artichoke chips, lamb rump and crispy skin chicken. Dessert includes indulgent classics such as creme caramel, lemon tart or a hot fudge sundae.

The drinks offering is designed around long lunches, with a bright cocktail menu from classics like the mojito to specialty creations such as the signature ‘Caddy Issues’, a mix between a cosmopolitan and a sea breeze and the ‘On the Green’ with kiwifruit, gin and Japanese melon. The wine list will have a focus on emerging Australian wine makers and classic regions, with chablis and German riesling on the list to enjoy course side. Tap beer will, of course, be a focus, with a collaboration with 4-Pines for a launch called ‘The Swingers Lager’.
