My friend and I were visiting from the USA and found this resturant near our hotel. The owner/manager was so friendly we felt like old friends by the end of the evening. We liked it so much we came back for a second visit.

I have been here many times in the past and it was previously a lovely warm restaurant with great food. Now it has little atmosphere and smells strongly of aftershave and bleach. The waiter (owner) was sullen and rude. I think this maybe why the...More

Been passed this place soooooo many times but never ventured. Anyway, situation reality - need food, need wine and if it's French style so be it. The tournedos rossini was excellent. The steak cooked medium rather than medium rare, but that's why I order it...More

La Guillotine is a lovely, old fashioned retreat in a city full of noisy and brash restaurants. Great service, great food, reasonable prices, this French bistro is all classic dishes. The food is not as good as Bistro Pappilon, and the atmosphere is very different....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
