California Pizza Kitchen Hillarys – A taste of California has landed at Hillary’s Boat Harbour. California Pizza Kitchen at Sorrento Quay is the very first Australian outlet of the popular American family restaurant. The atmosphere is casual and can get a little noisy – CPK is a BIG restaurant!
The menu is equally as big with loads of pizza toppings to choose from, as well as all kinds of pasta, salads and more. There’s plenty of international flavours, including lots of American influences – think Jambalaya Fettuccine, mac n cheese, chopped salad and roasted NY strip.
There are a few areas to sit and large tables, comfy sofas and cosy booths. We sat at a table by the open window, giving us a lovely view over the harbour and beach.
The kids menu has a lot of choices – especially if you have a little pizza lover in your family. As well as pizza there’s grilled chicken, a selection of pasta dishes and salads. We were happy to see lots of healthy options, but of course Little Chef just HAD to choose pizza! For a child’s main meal and a drink it costs $10. There’s also a selection of desserts for $5, which include a healthy option of yogurt and berry compote.
For their drink, kids can choose between juices and milkshakes that are flavoured with fresh fruit puree, milk and ice cream. There’s raspberry, coconut, mango and banana to pick from. Little Chef loved his coconut milkshake, which I was really surprised that he ordered! The kid’s drinks are served in a plastic cup with a lid and straw.
The kids menu also doubles as an activity sheet, with colouring, games, soduku and puzzles to keep kids of all ages entertained.
Kids are very well catered for at CPK, with lots of high chairs available, change facilities and you’ll also find a fenced off kid’s corner where there’s a large blackboard and TV with kids movies playing.
When our meals arrived, Chef enjoyed the mushroom, pepperoni, sausage pizza, $23. It’s topped with Swiss brown mushrooms, pepperoni, spicy Italian sausage, freshly torn basil, mozzarella and wild Greek oregano.
I chose something a little lighter and loved the prawn and zucchini pasta, $25. Zucchini ribbons are sautéed with lemon, garlic and white wine and tossed with a little parsley, parmesan and a touch of fettuccine. I love pasta, but sometimes find it heavy, so this dish gave me the best of both worlds.
Little Chef chowed down on his Hawaiian Pizza, topped with the usual suspects, pineapple, smoked ham, tomato sauce and mozzarella. The delicious pizza bases are freshly made on site, you can see the Chefs toss their dough in the air in the open kitchen.
We were too full for desserts, but I hear the smores at California Pizza Kitchen Hillarys are a must try. We’ll have to order those next time. We enjoyed our meals and would definitely go again, it’s a great option for a family meal at Hillary’s
