We should not praise Bar Zini too much, otherwise it will get even more popular. It is simply the best eatery in Sydney. It is small and cosy, the food is spectatular, the service is great and the price reasonable

No matter what other restaurants and cafes we go to in Sydney, we always come back to (and struggle to beat) Zini. From breakfast with some superbly done classic dishes and specials, through to dinner where the menu is never the same but is always...More
