This place is affordable for what and where it is; go for the specials (it helps if you go in hungry) and the cocktail jugs if you're with friends.

Was excited to go, I found their menu really interesting. I just had the macaroni appetizer and for a drink asked the waitress for the lemon myrtle lemonade I saw on the online menu. The macaroni was nice but not very flavorful. It was microwaved,...More

I have been here a couple of times with work mates for lunch. Both were great experiences. We are fortunate to work nearby and can get there early to beat the rush and get a table (before 12). I have had the chicken burger and...More

Great bar with burgers and sides. I had the vegetarian burger with fries and my partner had the salt & pepper mushrooms. Nice little drinks list. We just had a couple of ciders. We were seated quickly, ordered at the bar. Service was fast and...More

The burger seems to use good ingredients but the patty was a bit overcooked and chewy in places (not at all pink like in many photos I saw). The sauce really added to it, a bit spicy and a bit pickly (even though good pickles...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
