I came here early on a Friday evening with two friends. We ordered drinks and some snacks (casava chips and brioche rolls), and took a seat at the bar area. After 30 mins, our food still hadn't arrived, despite it not being particularly busy, and...More

This place is a pretty big space that would cater for large groups well. They have a $59 set menu which looks good. But there was just two of us and we tried a mixture of the tacos, the beans with rice & the plantain...More

Ambience was nice so we booked in. 40 minutes in and our cocktails still haven't arrived, the food is nowhere to be seen. They completely forgot about us. I ordered the Arena Sangrieta and my fiance asked for the Pablo Escobar and it took forever...More

We came on a quiet Wednesday night to this restaurant and were surprised by how small the menu was. However, we chose some sharing plates and everything was delicious! The staff were very friendly and there is a good, festive atmosphere here. I would definitely...More

We were here for dinner, it was OK. The menu isn't very extensive but there's enough to choose from. We were sat at a split table, awkwardly close to the people at the next table. After 15 mins we went to the bar to get...More

We visited here with a group of friends in April for some 'cheaper' eats. The atmosphere was pretty good (live band etc) but quite loud. Service was very poor - we got seated and then took a while to order drinks and then another period...More

Not sure, but it is the worst I have been to. It started badly with slow service to acknowledge our reservation and eventually seat us at a table. This was a small warning sign but the menus printed on the placemat and laminated for reuse...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
