Almond Bar is like a big embrace from your favourite Auntie from the minute you walk in to the minute you leave. Service is warm, attentive and friendly. The food is unbelievable. There is nothing here that you just don't want to try or that makes your mouth water when you read about it on the menu. Staff are always... More

I could rave about this place for ages, but in doing so would deny you the time to get on the phone and make a booking. Loved it. Impeccable service, wine list and staff. Very comfortable in letting them call the shots regarding the dishes and order. Just lovely

We opted for the meat banquet which was a good range of dishes and starting with 3 dips and pita. Highlights were the chicken and beef skewers and the crunchy salad that was a bit like a great salad without feta and olives and with crunchy flat bread instead. The cauliflower dish was also really great. Staff were friendly and... More

Fabulous, extraordinary. And more. Everything in this delightful little gem succeeds in pleasing all your senses. Warm and cosy decor, excellent offering and variety of middle eastern dishes. Everyone we tried was delicious, well prepared and presented. Despite being a very busy night the staff were all patient in explaining the dishes and then to help us to understand the... More

Found it difficult to find the restaurant, Google said we were right there but the sign on the building said Royal. The large glass windows need a sign. But...once we got across the road the service was outstanding. The table setting was minimal with a selection of different flavoured almonds. Very enticing. Water was poured with flair from a traditional... More

Birthday dinner for four. Booking made three weeks prior but disappointed as seated next to the door (restaurant was only half full and lots of four person tables free) so cold every time someone came in. I know the idea is to make it look full but this was annoying. Food was good and servings easily shared amongst 4. Drinks... More

This was the second time I'd been to Almond Bar, and once again I was reminded of what a fantastic, hidden little gem of a place this is. The staff were absolutely lovely; we tried the chef's special Syrian duck (do yourself a favour and order this), delicious dips and great wine. The special touches like the almonds you get... More

We had a couples dinner Saturday night. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Atmosphere great with no spare seats. Good service and orders delivered quickly. Food is on another level. Awesome! Standard city prices but well worth it. Do your self a favor.

Around the World in 80 Dinners took us to Almond Bar in Darlinghurst. From the outside, it looks nothing impressive but once inside the ambience is perfect. Despite it being a full on busy night the noise level was not such that you could not have conversations with everyone at the table. The food was tasty and plenty full. You... More

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
