After reading a few reviews I was sceptical about eating here but my partner had already booked a table. It was quiet for a Friday evening with us only being the 3rd table in the whole place, however this meant that the friendly waitresses gave us plenty of attention and we were never left waiting for anything. We had snails,... More

A food freak will never miss this, the food option here is something that will make your hunger pangs go mad to just grab & eat.

I’ve been meaning to visit this restaurant for twenty-something years and stumbled on it again yesterday at lunch. Apart from the pictures of French stage and screen stars, there’s nothing particularly French about the décor. And most of those stars couldn’t be recognised by anyone under 40 anyway. Interesting crowd dine there. We sat near a group of rugby ‘stars’... More

I happened to come across La Guillotine while walking back to my hotel and spontaneously stopped in. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. I had steak with peppercorn sauce. It was cooked perfectly. They paired it well with a red wine. Staff seemed to be a little chaotic as the restaurant began filling up. Not sure... More

Excellent main courses, very good desserts, pleasing ambience and service. Inappropriate background music. The most enjoyable dinner we had in our four-day visit to Sydney.

The menu had just what we were after - escargot, tornedos Rossini, crepe suzette. Every dish was worse than the next. Very poor food, disinterested waiters. In Sydney - go somewhere else - anywhere else.

I've been going here for several years, since I used to work around the corner and it was a great place to drop into for a relaxing lunch (omelette, salad and a glass of wine) if the day was going badly. Having semi-retired, and not being in the city much, it's been a couple of years since I was back... More

This was such a great choice! I was only in town for the day and needed a French fix. Read a few reviews of bistros/restaurants open at lunch and La Guillotine had the location, the sly name and great reviews. I did not book - it’s not always necessary to reserve for lunch in Paris. I was graciously greeted by... More

Sadly, having attended here intermittently over 12 months I have found this restaurant to be so variable in quality, both food and service. The duck ($44) was low quality and over cooked, although the sauce was tasty. The potato gratin that accompanied it was dry and warm. The waiter, different from the previous French chap was intrusive and abrupt. Yes,... More

I discovered this restaurant only a few days ago. I have eaten around the corner from it several times and never noticed it before but what a find. Authentic French food; not cheap but reasonable priced in my view. Outstanding service. I has snails, a chateaubriand (never been able to order this for one before) and cheese (Roquefort)and a glass... More

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.
