Loved the atmosphere. The selection of small and medium sharing plates was amazing. Some of the best desserts we’ve ever had. All this topped off with attentive service.We sat outdoors which was nice. Service is friendly, attentive and the waitress knew the menu well.More

This is such an interesting mix of Moorish and Spanish fine dining with a focus on the rotisserie and dishes from a wood-oven. It's a lively atmosphere with significant drama, fed from the action in the kitchen. I love everything about Mercado from the food...More

Found this place randomly. Food was very well presented and tasty. Service was spot on. One feedback would be the overuse of cream sauces or dressings in all the dishes. The flavors were perfect as it was and so much cream is unnecessary!

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

Located in Sydney’s CBD and housed in the historic 350 George Street building, Mercado is at the gateway of the city’s bustling and beautiful European-style Angel Place. We work with many small farmers, growers and producers to source the finest ingredients. These tireless people work as we do with the love and care for producing only the best. Just like in a market place our menu changes from week to week. Our Spanish/Moorish influenced menu is designed to share and is complemented by our Spanish-wine list. Mercado is about the revival of the old mixed with the new. Chef, Jason Dean’s passion for food derives directly from a love of reviving forgotten kitchen skills. Through whole animal butchery, meat curing, bread baking & preserving we aim to continue these traditions by hand with a great respect to the way cooking was and how we can use each method in the modern kitchen.
