About the restaurant
Eat. Drink. Chill. Ms Peacock is all about celebrating those three beautiful words. Tasty food, awesome bevvies and all in an amazing setting.

Tucked inside the stunning heritage-listed Eynesbury Homestead, a sprawling bluestone family home built in the 1800s, Ms Peacock is a modern family-friendly restaurant with an Italian inspired menu that has something to tickle everyone’s tastebuds. Gourmet wood fire oven pizzas, mouthwatering pastas, wood oven and rotisserie meat dishes, popular pub classics, kids’ favourites, and to-die-for desserts have diners spoilt for choice.

A must-try is head chef Gagan’s famous Prosciutto De San Daniele pizza that saw him crowned Australia’s number one entrant in Italy’s fiercely contested 2022 World Pizza Championship.

Went to Ms Peacock on a recommendation from a friend. We had a great time. The food was fantastic. It may look like a pizza and pasta place but everything was done with such a high degree of care. It tasted amazing. The service staff was very friendly. We are planning to go back again.

Because everything tastes better with a pinch of salt…water. Sun, water and a salty breeze with mouth-watering food and drink to match. Epic views of the city and sea, guaranteed.
