Based on prior reviews my husband and I went for dinner. The setting is lovely, tables set very nicely. We initially were only given the menu for the 3 course dinner and had to ask for the a la carte menu which was graciously given to us. The selections were varied and numerous. I had the best salmon - crispy... More

Anais was exceptional, nothing was a trouble and the food was delicious. The 10 of us under the reservation, Christine, say thanks for a wonderful... More

We had entree of Pate (seemed very commercial and nothing special) and Mushroom & Leek Crepe...which was quite good. For mains we had Fillet of Beef Tenderloin and Loin of Lamb. Both good... More

Each time we are in Sydney my wife loves to dine at this lovely French restaurant. The main reason is she loves the dozen Escargot done in garlic, butter and parsley. Location is in Pyrmont with Darling Harbour views. There is two levels of dining and the atmosphere and service meets our expectation for fine dining. We purchased their lunch... More

The food was absolutely delicious, everything was cooked to perfection. My first time trying Escargot, I didn't know how I would go with it having heard from others it can be 'chewy'. To my delight it was delicate, flavoursome and I was quite surprised by how much I liked it. The mains were cooked perfectly as well, I have never... More

We went here as a party of four on a loyalty programme booked through the internet, ithe food and service was very good and the proximity to Darling harbour was good even if the resturant is not in prime Darling harbour location.

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.
