Reviews

We can not fault Lovat! The food is incredible! We had the kingfish ceviche (again), the Zucchini flowers, gnocchi, wagyu steak and miso glazed eggplant.
The service is impeccable, yet super friendly and welcoming.

This restaurant is such a little gem in Newport. Firstly the fit out they have done is beautiful, modern and sleek yet still has a coastal vibe with the blue hues. The service was fantastic and so attentive and the food was 11/10. We had a table of four and ordered share plates and I could not fault a single dish. I will be back without a doubt, it was absolutely fantastic. Could not recommend this more if I tried. Put the kingfish as a must to try it was amazing as well as everything else!

It was really nice dinner! We travel to there for half hour, but worth it!!
We had two entrees and two main, cream brûlée. They were amazing! Especially our favorite is zucchini flower fry, we will definitely order it next time as well.
Friendly staff make us comfortable, and nice atmosphere:)

We've been wanting to visit Lovats for a while and finally got there last night.
Everything we had was fresh and delicious. Standouts were the seafood and Wagyu. Service was spot on - warm, welcoming and relaxed. Great cocktails too - try the Pear Crumble!

We had been thinking of trying Lovat's for a while and are so glad we did! We loved everything about this place. The food was great - one of the best eye filets I've ever had, cooked to perfection, and my daughter's pork belly was tasty and not too fatty (like it is in so many other restaurants). The wait staff were also friendly, especially Geronimo, who also worked with Lovat's owners at our other local favourite, Barbuto, in Collaroy. We will definitely be back!

- dined at Restaurant Lovat on

The food was excellent, we started with the zucchini blossoms and kingfish carpaccio, and followed with the mussels in cream sauce and rump steak. Everything was perfectly cooked and we will be back!

A fabulous addition to Newport. Fresh and delicious food set in a casual, smart interior. Wait staff were very friendly and helpful and there when you needed them. We will definitely make this a regular local spot. Great value kids menu too that came with a beautiful salad (often missed in a kids menu!) that they actually ate!

- dined at Restaurant Lovat on

The whole experience was incredible. The service, the drinks (limoncello spritz) and good was excellent and then some. The kingfish carpaccio was a flavor explosion. So glad they guys are back on the northern beaches!

We dined here as a family of 4 (2 daughters 11 and 15) Absolutely fantastic meal! The staff were very professional and friendly, the vibe was brilliant and food was delicious. You would not have known they had just opened 2 weeks prior. We will most definitely be back and as locals we will be recommending it to all our friends and family. Thank you Lovat

The Next Big Thing! Restaurant Lovat has just opened in Newport and seeing it advertised on First Table and always on the lookout for new restaurants I thought that I needed to try it. I took my wife and daughter and her boyfriend and Lovat exceeded all expectations. Run by the previous owners of Barbuto, Lovat has an excellent cuisine and great service in a fantastic location. The entree of calamari and zucchini flowers were excellent! The mains that we had-especially the pork belly - were delicious and the desserts were fantastic! We are looking forward to coming back ASAP!

This was our first visit to Lovat. We both had six natural oysters, and they were absolutely fresh and delicious. My husband had the Waygu beef with fries and ordered the side of broccolini. I had an entree of zucchini flowers for my main which was plenty for me. The wine list is reasonably priced with lots of choice of wine by the glass. Overall, I found the food to be delicious and I would love to come back soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Restaurant Lovat and happily highly recommend it. Service was excellent- very attentive and perfect timing between courses. Food selections were extensive covering all our different needs. Food and presentation was top quality. Restautant ambience and decor was great, I especially loved the background music and tables.

- dined at Restaurant Lovat on

Excellent food, excellent service. We were extremely satisfied in all aspects.
We were first in for the evening, but as we left the restaurant had started to fill up, yet we never felt pressured to leave, despite having finished our meals. All portions were the perfect size and the dessert of Blackberry and apple crumble for two was a struggle to finish !!

First time booking with First Table. All too easy and a great experience in a lovely restaurant with our family of 4. Definitely will be booking through First Table again and will be back to dine at the restaurant ‘Lovat’ at Newport. Thankyou again.

Loretta Csanyi

Wow, what a stellar meal! We split the salt & pepper calamari & zucchini flowers- so delicate yet packed with flavour. For mains we both had a steak with the pepper sauce and mashed potatoes and broccolini for sides. The steak was PERFECT. For dessert we shared the apple & berry crumble. One word DELICIOUS!
The service was AMAZING. Thank you for a wonderful night!

- dined at Restaurant Lovat on

We were delighted with our dining experience. The menu appealed to all age groups in our party, the service was excellent and the food sensational. The calamari entree was succulent, the Mussels had amazing flavours overflowing from the bowl and the creme brulee delicious. A crisp Pinot Gris accompanied a great evening. As General MacArthur once said, "I will return."

This was our third visit to this restaurant. The menu is compact but offered good variety. The zucchini flowers were light and the filling interesting we all thought they were really good. The prosciutto and burratta was served with good tasty bread and was also a hit.
One person had the pate and enjoyed it.
For mains we had steak which was done the way everyone requested, it was served with a choice of accompaniments and made a well balanced meal. The roast pork was tender and the barramundi was cooked properly. Each mains was sufficient as a meal. The fish pie was the only dish that was disappointing but that I think was more a case of personal preference rather than a fault with the pie.
The deserts were good.
The wine list had some expensive bottles and enough lower priced.
I think this restaurant offers great food at a reasonable price. It is a good local restaurant without any pretence.

John Cockbill

Wonderful restaurant which has the formula correct. Much as I groan when a restaurant has 2 sittings, this place needed it! We were at the first sitting and the place was full.
The staff were so helpful and offered us a table outside (They had plastic curtains and gas heaters so it was not cold) when our time was up and the next sitting had arrived for our table.
The servings were generous and my barramundi was excellent - moist inside, crisp crust outside.
Thank you Lovat - we'll be back.

This was my second visit to Lovat in a week, I loved the first experience and was longing to return. The bonus was I found Lovat on First table. The second visit was equally impressive. Every dish that my husband and I ordered (3 entrees, 2 mains and 1 dessert) was perfect. Its not often you dine out and absolutely love everything that you order. We both agreed this is going to be our go to restuarant. Lovat a fine dining experience without the fine dining price tag. We experienced fantastic service, a delicious fresh and innovative menu in a relaxed space. Will be dining there again soon, First Table or not.
