They have the French system down pat. Entree and a main with a glass of vin rouge for $55. Outstanding elevation of artisanal Italian cooking to fine-dining status. Its location is CBD perfect,

Warm, attentive staff always make you feel relaxed here. The ambience is cozy with just the right amount of seclusion. If it's busy, the bar is just as nice to have a drink while you wait for a table. Menu has lots of options with...More

Very friendly and traditional atmosphere. Staff were happy and quick with the service. The place was packed and upon tasting the food I could see why. A little pricey but you will get value in the freshness and quality.

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
