Seating at this pub is problematic as the number of people is amazing. Bar tenders are usually overwhelmed. Our bar tender was clueless to what beers were on tap. Food is quite good. Go early to get a table. Fun place!

I was visiting Sydney and decided to hit this pub, because I know what to expect and let's be honest, it has Guinness on tap. Again, it is a pub, so I knew what to expect. I did not eat here, however the food choices...More

Scribing this from the bar of PJ O'Brians. After a two year absence since my last visit I've suddenly experienced one of the worst pints of Guinness I've had so far after many years in Sydney. Being the son of an Irish publican I really...More

Okay, so no-one probably has high expectations when going for a pub meal - let's be honest. This one is below average. Service was "basic" and unfriendly at the bar where we ordered food and drinks. The meal was small, dried out, overcooked and the...More

Visited this restaurant in the evening for a meal. I ordered the scotch steak which came with chips, salad and pepper sauce. Overall it was a solid meal although the peppercorn sauce was watery which caused chronic leakage on the plate. Ambience within the venue...More

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
