A group of friends and I meet once a year at this excellent eatery for some years now and it must be said it is one of the most consistently good restaurants I have encountered. Excellent food, fantastic service and a comprehensive wine list make this place one of my favourites.

Large restaurant with a business feel at lunch time. Good service and the food is tasty and plentiful. Authentic food not a fancy fusion or modern interpretation, honest wholesome food.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
