Relax by the lake and enjoy the atmosphere

While ‘dinner with a water view’ is not your first thought when dining in Sydney’s West, the calming lake views at Jazzveh provide a unique ambience for a relaxing night out.

Sitting sneakily behind the towering corporate offices of Bella Vista, this gem is at first a little hard to find. But once discovered, patrons enjoy a rich and inviting atmosphere incorporating chocolate brown tones and slate walls. With glass partitions that allow dining to flow from inside to an outside covered deck area, it all feels ‘alfresco’ from any table in the restaurant.

The only potential challenge is parking. Spaces are few and shared with neighbouring restaurants, however when dining out of business hours, there is more parking available in the area.

Hand Made Pizza Bases Make All the Difference

Locals know Jazzveh as a Woodfired Pizza Cafe, and they are famous for making their pizza bases by hand in house. There are over 25 varieties to try plus a ‘Pizza Creation of the Week’ created for two. Pizza meets Persia in their signature ‘Jazzveh’ pizza. It has a secret in-house sauce, but you can taste Persian flavours including red sumac and a slight kick of heat. It is laden with marinated lamb, that has been slow roasted in the woodfire oven for hours, filling the restaurant with the most mouthwatering scent. The Jazzveh is also topped with eggplant, feta and the surprise of walnuts that add great texture. With all your standard favourites of Marghertia, and Ham n Pineapple sitting comfortably among gourmet vegetarian, seafood, meat and chicken pizza options, it’s easy to find something to your liking.

Starters

Pizza bases are also found amongst the starters. A favourite is the Spinach and Feta Crust, with lots of cheese and garlic to easily sneak in some greens without your kids (or big kids) noticing. The Calamari Rings are also impressive – coated in a generous amount of panko crumbs, and served with tartare sauce is still excellent. Made ‘in-house’ this wildly thick and creamy sauce is very moorish with less ‘tang’ than most tartare sauces, but lemon is supplied on the side to increase flavour as desired.

 

Where Group Dining become an Adventure

When dining in a group you must try Poseidons Tower. A three-tiered share plate for at least four adults is overflowing with an ocean of flavours. Starting at the top with the Rosemary Polenta Chips, then followed by the Ocean Reef Pizza with an added kick of chilli to keep any boredom at bay. Calamari and Chips mean even the fussiest little one will enjoy this feast, and the Crispy Battered Fish is super flakey on the inside with plenty of lemon and tartare to compliment. The Garlic Prawns have just enough flavour to still ensure a kiss goodnight. The Mussels are given the Italian treatment while the fresh Prawns and Smoked Salmon melt in your mouth. It’s here you will find every kind of seafood done every way.  Great for a group of family or friends to enjoy together and even more wonderful with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

Salads Enjoyed as a Meal

Salad lovers will enjoy Jazzveh’s great range that certainly turns the humble salad into a full fledged meal. From the Haloumi Salad of grilled haloumi cheese with mixed lettuce, roma tomatoes, avocado, crispy sweet potato and a honey balsamic dressing. To the Marinated Lamb Salad, filled with more of that delicious marinated lamb, with mixed lettuce, grilled eggplant, and large dollops of humus, and a crunch fried flat bread crisp. The middle-eastern flavours are delicious and taste so good you think it’s too naughty to be a salad!

Dessert to Finish

While the dinners are generous, you will want to make room for dessert! From Creme Brulee to Affogato Frangelico and Gelato, or the Nutella Calzone with strawberries and bananas to share, there are plenty of sweet treats to end your meal in perfect satisfaction.

Whether dining in a group, a family outing, or a romantic dinner for two, the wide menu selection, comfortable elegant setting and gorgeous lake view make Jazzveh and ideal location for any occasion.
