We stopped here for coffee and light snack before a lunch time concert at the Sydney Recital Hall. It is only metres from the concert hall. The coffee was a dark roast and nicely made but a bit bitter. The snack (almond croissant) was very...More

It's definitely worth 4 stars for the food, the buzz and the location. Perfect for sharing plates too. Just a pity about the blonde French waitress who couldn't give a damn. Less up-sell and more engagement would have been nice, along with an apology for...More

Set in a narrow laneway in central Sydney, Ash Street Cellar is an ideal location for a meal or even a drink of wine from lunchtime until the evening. While the menu is not vast, the food is delicious and the service is exceptional.

Chose Ash St Cellar for a meal after a matinée, as it’s lunch/dinner menu is offered all afternoon (i.e. there is no 14:30 to 17:00 hiatus that many restaurants have), and hence there is no need to book. Tucked away in secluded Ash Street adds...More

Nothing off the charts but very good and consistent quite affordable. Great wine list sadly they've dropped the sherries : ( The fresh figs and goats curd was excellent as well as the Sardines.

In the laneway near to the Ivy; this place is across (and owned) by Felix. Had a business lunch here and it was very good. Great ambience and very Melbournesque dining outside. Well shaded and a good buzz. Charcuterie board was one of the best...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

A modern European-style bistro, Ash St. Cellar and wine bar is intimately tucked away behind ivy. Classic café chairs, warm wooden décor and Parisian 'plein aire' seating creates an ideal hideaway from the hustle and bustle of Sydney's CBD. Head chef Zac Ahrens creates stylish European tapas with French, Italian and Spanish influences to compliment the fabulous array of wines. The charcuterie starters are a favourite, but leave room the tart of the day. Franck Moreau, Merivale's award-winning Master Sommelier, presides over a world-class wine list that doesn't disappoint. Now also open for breakfast daily from 8.30am weekdays.
