Significant stairs down into the restaurant but well worth it. The atmosphere and decor with dark timber polished tables is immediately striking. Serve at reception was very warm and friendly and even though heavily booked (even at 6.30) made sure they could get us a...More

We arrived on a Friday afternoon to celebrate a newly admitted lawyer (apparently their proximity to the NSWSC meant they had plenty of lawyers) though when we were there at two there were plenty of tables. Our server was warm, inquisitive and friendly, wishing our...More

Meal was great, delicious and we didn't have to wait too long for our tapas to arrive. Minor gripe was that we were initially seated near a very loud birthday party group, but we asked to move tables and the staff quickly complied. Decently priced...More

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
