North Stradbroke Island
Situated at the beautiful North Stradbroke Island Golf Club, virtually the highest point on the second biggest sand island in the world.
From the dining room deck you have a bird’s eye vista overlooking Brown Lake, Moreton Bay and the big island (Australia) in the distance. On a clear day you can see the Glasshouse Mountains. At night the lights from the mainland might be considered a little romantic, and to see the lightening on a stormy night is something to behold. The Bistro is fully undercover regardless of the weather conditions.
It just so happens that my surname is Seymour, I thought about calling the Bistro ‘See More’ or some other connotation because of the aspect. I settled on my using my actual name because my late dad always envisaged me having my own place called ‘Chez Seymour’
Whilst I am a classically trained chef, my offerings will be far from traditional fare. My darling grandmother and mother were/are wonderful cooks and were my inspiration to becoming a chef and I will implement those treasured homestyle skills.
