Good food and setting let down by the need for repeated reminders on drinks orders, & the steamed barramundi should have been hotter. Avoid the toilets if you value hygiene. Roti starter plus pork belly was good though.

A beautiful setting, with a really interesting menu and good friendly service. Staff were very friendly and accommodating given a person on our table had special dietary requirements.

Sensational food in a beautiful setting. We worked though all the entrees as a grazing menu which was delicious. Definitely try the Whisky Business cocktail

Fantastic food and a wonderful setting. Quite an eclectic menu, but absolutely delicious. Staff were rushed and service was a bit slow (it wasn’t very busy), but overall a lovely experience. We will happily return.

Have been there a few times now with friends and as a couple. Cocktails are delicious and the food is great. Little bit pricey for the portion size but will definitely be back. Service is always good too. Great venue

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!
