Melbourne Cup At Daniel Sans

Last week was my first experience getting excited over the Melbourne Cup! We have horse racing in the UK, and ladies day at Royal Ascot is the one day in the year women dress up in their best frocks and hats. The best thing about the Melbourne Cup is regardless of attending the races or not, everyone still makes an effort to dress up and put a cheeky gamble on. Last Tuesday Andrea, Jo and I were lucky enough to be invited to Daniel Sans in Manly, sister restaurant of the Watson’s Bay Hotel. As soon as the 4 course menu came through I was sold! Freshly shucked oysters, softshell crab kimchi and sticky soy glazed lamb ribs were just some of the dishes on offer. I love heading over to Manly when I can, and the ferry over still makes me feel like a tourist in Sydney! Daniel Sans has the perfect location overlooking the beach, and the atmosphere was perfect for an afternoon of bubbles and Japanese cuisine. 

The dress I’m wearing is not something I would usually choose. I can’t remember the last time I wore a bodycon! But being a special occasion I thought I’d step out of my comfort zone. Off the shoulder is a key trend this season, and it’s a flattering cut. Block colour (whether it be black, white or grey) will always tick the right box! Bohemian jewellery was a good contrast as the dress was quite formal.  and like to add a bit of a relaxed feel to any outfit. Loving the marble accents throughout the ring and bracelets. Not sure this trend will ever die in my eyes.

All in all it was a great day, and Daniel Sans were the perfect host. If you love the Watson’s Bay hotel you will love this place. And added bonus, the service was amazing. The staff couldn’t do enough for us. When a place is packed mid week, you know they are doing something right!
