Hurricane’s Grill is located in the new outdoor dining precinct as part of the new development of Narellan Town Centre. The design explores a fresh and sophisticated approach adopting white
painted concrete, arches and terracotta tiles that are true colours of Portugal and reflect the owner’s traditional Portuguese and South African inspired menu.
The exposed black elevated ceiling allows for the majestic and theatrical elements below to be emphasised and highlighted on the expansive polished concrete flooring. The characteristic arch
trellis dividers have drawn inspiration from the famous Gare de Oriente and Sao Bento Railway Stations of Portugal. Connecting us back to the memories and imaginations of travelling through
Portugal and the historical grandeur.
The bar of the restaurant is a direct reference to the concrete arches seen in Portuguese architecture. It holds the strong foundations as a main element of the space and is complimented with a vast display of wine and spirits that are haloed with LED strip lighting.
The fully operable bi‐fold doors extend the restaurant shop front and open the restaurant and bar area to the courtyard. The successful integration between the Australian Tasmanian Oak along with the green Zanzibar plants that are native to South Africa and the indoor / outdoor dining feel of Portugal harmonises this conceptual combination and allows a relaxed casual experience that is reminiscent of being in a town square in Lisbon.
Known for their traditional Portuguese inspired menu, the theatre is an important part of the brand. Treating the kitchen as the hub of the restaurant, it was important for the space to be a long
rectangle section that felt visually open to dinners and a part of the dining experience. Most of the kitchen action and theatre happens around the open flame grill which is why the famous 5 metre
grill sits proud on the front kitchen counter. The combination of the unique grilling style and fresh produce compose alluring aromas that swirl through the restaurant and out the door.
