The Goose Beach Bar and Kitchen, 1 Geographe Bay Road, Busselton WA 6280, Phone 9754 7700.
Fringe Dwellers … For just a day or so we were dwelling on the edge of WA’s wine country. In Busselton to peruse some wineries we set off to try lunch on the Jetty. The Goose Beach Bar and Kitchen sounded perfect.
The venue is situated right on the water but still on Terra Firma and was built in the same style as the Chalets further along the 1.8km Jetty. It’s a popular place and the go-to venue for weddings within the local community.
We could see why it was so popular for weddings, right on the beach with an enormous lawned area just perfect for a Marquee. And, just perfect for a Restaurant, the Goose definitely has draw appeal.
Deciding on tap water and a plate of Chermoula Chicken each. We chatted and watched the water craft on Geographe Bay as we waited for the food to arrive. Very pleasant.
The Chicken was cooked in a Tagine after being marinated in Chermoula dressing. Consisting mainly of herbs, lemon and oil. The dish was beautifully presented, with beetroot swirls and a lighter pinker swirl which tasted of marsala to me. While sitting on a bed of pearl barley Pilaf, roasted almonds and spinach.
The chicken was fall apart tender and the marinade was spicy and tasty. This was a great plate of food.
So, we will be back.
