The Stone Experience


Try the experience defined as 'elusive and cuisine-defining'.

One of the oldest cooking methods in the world!

Cooking on hot rocks or stone is one of the oldest methods of cooking. By cooking on pre-heated hot stones it helps keep every mouthful tender and succulent. 

We use a special cooking technique before serving our meat and the natural theatre of the method, combined with the purity of taste and health benefits of using minimal oil and no fats ensures that the diner has an unforgettable experience time after time.

Our Ethos

Specialising in seafood and steak, the ethos of our restaurant works on the philosophy of 'fresh quality food sourced locally'. We source ingredients for all our dishes from local suppliers where possible. Organic, free range and artisan producers are reviewed on a regular basis, with our own chefs inspecting off-site premises to find the very best ingredients. Executive Chef Dan Courtney with Head Chef (and brother) Marty focus on local and seasonal produce to create each signature dish. Cooking on the stone adds a fun sharing element to your dining experience. We use a special cooking technique before serving our meat which helps keep every mouthful tender and succulent. Whether you are dining with friends, family or colleagues, Stix and Stones is the perfect choice for quality food in a great atmosphere. 

 

FAQ

How long does the stone stay hot for? 

The stone will stay hot for approximately 45 minutes after you have been served.

Do I have to use a stone?

No, we offer all our customers the choice of using the stone or the more traditional method of having the chief cook it to your taste. 

Why is dry aged meat better? 

Dry ageing is the optimum and most consistent method of meat maturation that does not disturb the tissue ''make up'', while holding and indeed intensifying the flavour profile. 

The end result is meat that is more 'Consistent, Tender, and Flavoursome (more intense with a slight nutty profile), with less shrinkage (10% less than a standard steak - Proven!)'' than any other offering available. 

Where does our steak come from? 

All of our steak is sourced locally from Hannan Meats where it is dry-aged in unique Hamalyan Rock Salt chambers to produce sweet, flavorsome mult-award winning beef.
