Friendly welcome, good menu choice, they were quick to arrive, the calamari,roasted olives, arancini balls, were a good start. The Flank steak, trout & gnocchi were all cooked and presented well with a different flair to them. Would go again

The friendly waiters don’t make up for an overpriced menu and some corner cutting on quality. My flank steak was too chewy, my wife’s was cooked a good few minutes beyond the requested medium colour and we were almost certain that $35 for a kids...More

Description
Why 1908 Cronulla? Honouring the roots of our community! At the turn of the XXth century, the Illawara train line revived the remote seaside gem of Cronulla and put it on the map. Surrounded by glittering waters and magnificent sand dunes, Cronulla started to attract settlers, beach lovers and Sydney-siders. A Methodist church was erected circa 1908, where the restaurant now stands. It went on to be the Shire library in the 1970's, The Old Library Restaurant in 2011, and 1908 Cronulla since 2016. Reflecting its proximity to the sea, 1908 Cronulla Social Restaurant & Cocktail Bar prides itself on coastal cuisines embracing the flavours of the ocean worldwide. Influenced by ingredients and culinary traditions from the Caribbean, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Italy, India, Thailand, Polynesia and Australia, Head Chef David Magill has composed a cuisine with a focus on fresh local produce. It is a celebration of coastal dining, which includes BBQ grilling and guéridon flambé in the dining room. 1908 Cronulla is the perfect venue for singles, couples, groups and functions of all sizes with private lounges available. Experience wonderful service from the team whilst enjoying a cocktail and tasting a unique contemporary cuisine from breakfast to dinner! Look us up on Facebook or Instagram and visit 1908cronulla.sydney for more information about our menus or to enquire about your up-coming event. Welcome!
