Tucked away under an office block, the door is not very obvious. Very helpful staff, gave great advice on what to order, food was amazing! Wine was good too.

We were staying in an apartment next door to Berta and discovered it walking by the first evening. It isn't obvious as the front door looks like another apartment building but once you go in and walk down the passage it soon becomes clear that this gem of a restaurant is buzzing! I was travelling with a friend and we... More

Went here with a group of people which I would say is the best way to dine at Berta. I would recommend ordering a good number of dishes so that you get to taste as much of the produce as possible. As the menu constantly changes it is somewhere you can dine at many times. The beer and wine selection... More

We tried this restaurant during our honeymoon and we were positively surprised by the kindness of the staff and the level of the food (Italian cuisine here). Recommended!

After returning from a 3 week holiday in Tuscany, my son and I were craving for a meal of equal quality as we experienced every night during our travels. Berta delivered on most counts. Food was good, wine list very good but service was a little inconsistent, poor couple next to us really were not happy (not a lot of... More

A true favourite which never disappoints. Was able to get a booking sitting up at the bar on the same day. Service is superb. Stewart is incredibly helpful for recommendations on food and wine. The menu changes regularly and everything is simply delicious. Just love this restaurant

This restaurant was a real treat. The timing of the food was perfect, a credit to the kitchen and wait staff. All the dishes are share plates which was nice. The restaurant was full but they still managed to get each dish out shortly after we had finished the previous one, but without making us feel rushed. The large table... More

The service was great, we randomly popped in and they were able to sort out a table for us in no time. Great food, small portions but worth every bite!! Go for the Asparagus entree, and the green apple sorbet.

We are locals and went here on a Saturday night. We were seated at the bar and initially I was disappointed but turned out to be a good thing. The staff were lovely and the food was delicious, everything we had was very well coked and very tasty and good portion sizes! Highly recommend.

The food was amazing as were the staff. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. We were a party of 7 from interstate or New Zealand and all would heartily recommend a visit to this little gem hidden away down a laneway.

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.
