Came here with a friend on a Tuesday night using the Living Social deal in Nov 2017. Before that, the restaurant was very responsive towards our emails about possible changing of our reservation time/ date - very helpful and patient, we are grateful for that!...More

Had a quick bite here for the first time in a few years. Food is very good with a short selection, but very well priced for the central city location. Unfortunately the pleasant outdoor environs are currently not so pleasant with tipper trucks rumbling up...More

I guess my review is not based on a conventional visit, as it was a work Christmas night kind of setting with finger food and drinks paid by staff members. So the arrangement was $42 per person for food only, and what was served was...More

Had the calamari again - apart from seeming to be smaller serves at night still good. Salad is huge and enough to share with. Meat lovers at the table enjoyed their food as well.

Want something slightly different than your average Hotel buffet fare? A bit limited on selection, but the Avocado smash is great, and holds a lovely spicy surprise. Coffee is also right up there to start your day. Food was well presented, very well priced and...More

Great lunch - calamari was soft and tender with some zing with the sauce on the bean sprouts. Side salad and chips good size to share. Only did entree size of calamari and that was enough for a lunch. Will be back.

Nice atmosphere and great food. The Lane is in downtown Sydney, but just off the busiest streets. I had the pan-fried barramundi with black quinoa...both were new to me, and I would love to have them again. Beautifully and deliciously prepared. The prices were reasonable...More

This little gem is located right next to our offices and provides a great sunny spot away from the hustle and bustle with lovely décor, delicious food and excellent service. You will be pleasantly surprised.

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
