It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Subsolo but I had fond memories of the food and ambience when it first opened. But everything has changed. The rich red interiors are largely gone and so has the great food. The tapas are ok....More

Subsolo forgot to put our order in, we followed up and no one could explain what happened. 2.5 hours for what should be a quick meal. Poor overall experience, not coming back.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
