Torpedo Bay Tavern & Grill
The restaurant sits right over the water and was named after a small bay just before North Head which was discovered by a French explorer in 1827. You can dine inside or out on the deck and enjoy the view across the harbour to the city. They should know how to make a real margarita now, they were shown by a real Texan :-)
