Various fish dishes from Petermen restaurant

Petermen is a lower North Shore seafood restaurant by acclaimed chef Josh Niland and his wife Julie, serving fish with stunning creativity and technical precision.

In line with Josh's noted commitment to championing Australian seafood,  Petermen focuses on the growers and producers that seek to elevate the standard, and change the culture of how we consume food.

Menus are structured as a $145pp three-course choice menu (available lunches and dinners), or a less premium $125pp three-course and $95pp two-course menu available at lunchtime only.

The menus offer snacks like a hand-picked crab tart, starters of charcoal-grilled Manjimup marron with fragrant herbs and a Laotian sauce, mains spotlighting line-caught seasonal fish, and desserts.

If you're trying your luck walking in, there is a dedicated bar space with a snack menu with the likes of a Clarence Point abalone schnitzel sandwich and a fish pie for two.

Petermen is the Nilands' fifth establishment, with the previously announced Saint Peter Hotel scheduled to open in the second half of 2024 joining Saint Peter, Fish Butchery and Charcoal Fish. Sensing a theme? The name is a nod to 1400s slang, when fishermen were known as Petermen after their patron saint, Peter.
