A Modern Approach to French Cuisine
There are few dining experiences more distinguished or more cherished than the comfort, warmth and familiarity of classic French Bistro dining. At The Long Apron, this tradition is embraced and elevated, bringing a hearty taste of the rolling hills of the French countryside and cobbled Parisian boulevards to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
Considered a destination in its own right, The Long Apron’s intimate and inviting French provincial setting and ever-changing menu puts a spotlight on quality food that leaves you entirely satisfied, yet keeps you intrigued. The team create classic French dishes without pretence, and draw on classic French ethos and technique, matching time-honoured disciplines with contemporary artistry.
The kitchen places great importance on sourcing only the best and freshest local, sustainable and single origin ingredients, and maintains strong relationships with local farmers and providores. Local seafood is featured, as are superior quality meats, and vegetables.
Diners can explore the menu by choosing either an a la carte or tasting menu experience. A small sample of dishes that have featured on the menu in the past and are illustrative of the style include marinated scallops with heirloom tomato, caramelised cream and perilla; eye fillet with confit potato, pickled mushrooms and bernaise; duck breast with pear, chestnut and Jerusalem artichoke; and cheesecake with white chocolate Sorbet, passionfruit and sablée. An extensive wine list leans towards the vineyards of France, especially Champagne, Burgundy, Bordeaux and Rhone. Premium wines by the glass are available, and petite fours and wine tasting in the library can be enjoyed prior to seating.
A lengthy, indulgent stay at The Long Apron seems most suitable, as you soak up the ambience and refined, innovative and unexpected cuisine.
