Asian street food is not common in Australia, but you will love dining at Steam. Their menu is filled with yumminess that includes spicy Korean kimchi, crab wonton cones, and sweet corn and coriander fritters. This restaurant is directly across from the beach in Rye, so you can visit there often in between time on the sand.

Del Posto 2409 is a wonderful option for dinner. Their menu is filled with Mediterranean and Italian cuisine. The penne carbonara and paccheri are both excellent. However, everything on the menu is delicious and it all goes with the different bottles of wine they have available.
