Cock­tails in par­adise

Is there a bet­ter view in Airlie than Sor­rento’s sun­set?

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

IT’S one of the true gems of the Whit­sun­day food scene.

Sor­rento Restau­rant and Bar is sit­u­ated on an idyl­lic spot promi­nently fea­tured on the Airlie Beach coast at Abell Point Ma­rina and of­fer­ing some of the most spec­tac­u­lar sun­set views in the re­gion.

Come the after­noon, the venue is filled with those wish­ing to have a drink or a bite to eat with the back­drop of truly breath­tak­ing views.

If you want top qual­ity Ital­ian and Aus­tralian food at a great price, along­side top notch ser­vice, then Sor­rento is your spot.

Owner Petrit Is­togu said their af­ter­noons had be­come prime time.

“We get quite a few peo­ple want­ing to have a few drinks wait­ing for the sun­set,” he said.

“A lot of peo­ple come here for it and you can eas­ily see why.”

From 3-4pm Sor­rento has a two for one pizza deal and $15 pas­tas and while their kitchen is closed from 4-5pm, they offer a happy hour.

Their cock­tail menu fea­tures all the clas­sics as well as their spe­cial own cre­ations in­clud­ing their sig­na­ture trop­i­cally in­flu­enced Sor­rento Sun­set. Their mango mar­garita and lycee lover cre­ations have also proven pop­u­lar.

Then from 5pm their whole menu opens up and guests can or­der a wide range of de­li­cious dishes to en­joy with their drinks, in­clud­ing shared plat­ters like their amaz­ing seafood plat­ter or an­tipasto dish.

But of course, you can’t go past their pasta or pizza which are both con­sis­tently rated as some of the best in the Whit­sun­days.

And while Sor­rento has only been able to open their bot­tom floor since re-open­ing post TC Debbie, they are weeks away from open­ing their re­fur­bished top floor, com­plete with a mas­sive ex­tended deck.

Sor­rento can take book­ings but walk ins are also wel­come.
