We went there as a recommendation and now I do recommend this place for everyone. All entrees that we got was so tasteful and also my Rib Eye was cooked perfectly. I can say it's a must go place to have dinner.

We went here after seeing it on tv so we booked a table and spent the weekend in Sydney. Brilliant food and atmosphere. Couldn't ask for better service in such a relaxed place. If you are in the area this place is a must.

We really enjoyed our dining experience at Pony. The trendy restaurant is located in The Rocks area in Sydney, and offers a warm, ambient room (think cosy dark brown brick walls and subdued lighting). Our waitress was excellent, coping graciously with the extremely annoying Needy single female diner (who wanted to share her life and cooking tips) with professional aplomb,... More

Found this restaurant on trip advisor. Thanks to all who previously reviewed. We weren't disappointed. We dined for lunch this week on our last day in Sydney. I started with a cocktail, it was light and refreshing, then had the grilled salmon....what can I say? It was cooked to perfection and the accompaniments were accurately paired. The pineapple cheesecake was... More

based on the recommendation of gent we met in The Tap Room, we nipped across the road and booked a place at the outside communal table for a few hours later. A great experience, the lamb backstrap was well cooked and well presented, the selected vegetable side portions were huge! A busy lively place with great staff, service and good... More

Last evening we dined at Pony. This restaurant has it all: visual appeal, open kitchen, hip decor, attentive service, a bartender who knows what he's doing...and superb food. We ordered a steak, lamb, and the daily fish special, which was snapper. We also ordered some fries and a bowl of roasted carrots. All were prepared flawlessly. The steak was prepared... More

We ended up at Pony Dining upon the recommendation of a Sydney resident, when asked where it was good to eat after a long tour ending at Sydney Harbor. The place itself was exuded a cool vibe which was quite inviting. Despite not having reservations, the staff was more than helpful to find us a seat. We had the 12-hour... More

Visited Pony again in April and we all had a great meal. The steak and fish on the woodfire is amazing. Liked the new renovation but love the food. Thanks to the great team for making the night special.

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
