It was ANZAC day and heading to Chinatown after the march and saw that La Guillotine was open. In we went. Great place for mussels and steak. Great entree of chicken liver and pork pate. The mussels were the absolute best I have ever eaten....More

I've been coming to La Guillotine now, every few years when I am in Sydney for about the last 2 decades and I love the place. Most recently my partner and I went there in early March 2017 for a quiet dinner for two. Both...More

La Guillotine is a lovely, old fashioned retreat in a city full of noisy and brash restaurants. Great service, great food, reasonable prices, this French bistro is all classic dishes. The food is not as good as Bistro Pappilon, and the atmosphere is very different....More

Kind of went here by mistake looking for a different French restaurant. This was not as good. There was nothing really bad about it but nothing was really great either. I had lamb cutlets. They were cooked nicely. The wine by the glass was good....More

I happened to come across La Guillotine while walking back to my hotel and spontaneously stopped in. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. I had steak with peppercorn sauce. It was cooked perfectly. They paired it well with a red wine....More

Excellent main courses, very good desserts, pleasing ambience and service. Inappropriate background music. The most enjoyable dinner we had in our four-day visit to Sydney.

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
