Jordan’s career began in the Sydney Opera House kitchen in 1997. Moving to Europe in 2006, Jordan ran a luxury chalet in France and became a personal chef. Travelling Europe and the USA, he developed an appreciation for the simplest and freshest ingredients. In 2014 Jordan joined Merivale as executive chef of Coogee Pavilion. Jordan then joined The Newport team, led the launch of Bert’s and The Collaroy, all a reflection of Jordan’s talent for balancing refinement, simplicity and innovation.

    While our waiter was great, that was pretty much where the good feedback ended. After arriving we spent nearly 10 minutes waiting to be seated after speaking to multiple people. Once we were finally seated at a table we were moved after 5 minutes because we’d been seated at the wrong table. We then had to wait 20 minutes for water to be served and for our order to be taken. The salad that was ordered as a side for the mains arrived with the drinks and then it was a further 45 minutes until entrees were served. My wife ordered the pumpkin tortellini which was so undercooked that the pasta was hard and raw and had to be sent back to the kitchen. Wary of the time it took for it to arrive the first time she didn’t bother having it recooked but we then sat there for a further 60 minutes, with our waiter telling us every five minutes that our mains were coming, before they actually arrived. By this stage we’d already eaten the salad in an attempt to stave of the hunger. The steaks we ordered were well cooked but incredibly overpriced, as were the rolls at $3 a piece. The restaurant manager comped us both a glass of wine for the tortellini debacle but the fact the restaurant thinks it’s ok to charge such high prices while making you wait an hour between each course is an insult. We would not return nor would we recommend others.

    Beautiful fitout and ambience, food was good, however service and menu availability was subpar. We ordered food at 8.30 on a Friday and they were already out of the eye fillet and duck. I think they need to either reduce their menu or ensure popular dishes are available especially on a friday night. Also, they got 3 out of 7 drink orders wrong and forgot to bring one out...

    The restaurant is well decorated in Art Deco furnishings. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was of a high quality but small portions. Wine list was extensive and very nice bar area for predinner drinks.

    Justin Hemmes really knows how to hit the mark. Bert's is a lovely restaurant with warm ambiance and fine dining which whilst large at a restaurant conveys great intimacy. The duck was superb and not something we often pick. The wine list is extensive as was the previous restaurant on the same site. A real go to restaurant if you are up the Far Northern Beaches way. The only negative (which they can't control) is that by 9.30 ish it's almost empty. Few later diners. So get there for 7 or 7.30
