Schnitzel special on Thursdays
It seems like every pub in Sydney is promoting some sort of weekly specials menu during these tough economic times and The Dolphin Hotel is no exception. I'm doubtful I'll ever come across a better deal than the very cheap $2 steak at Beach Palace Hotel on Wednesday nights but the $12.50 Veal Schnitzel special on Thursdays at The Dolphin Hotel is still good value. It's quite a thick piece of schnitzel and I ordered mine with the tasty mushroom sauce. The salad was fresh lettuce leaves although it didn't really seem to come with dressing so I needed to ask for more. I would have preferred the dish to be served on a plate rather than a shallow bowl so I could separate my crispy chips from the sauce but that's just me being picky. The generous sized pumpkin risotto was also nice and had chunky bits of salty speck throughout and plenty of shaved parmesan.
The Dolphin Hotel seems to be a popular place and I think their weekly specials are quite reasonably priced. The food has mixed reviews on Eatability so it might depend on what you order. There's quite a bit of seating and the decor is contemporary and quite homely with it's dim lighting.
