Beatific food, venue and service. We had a great time at pony which at no stage felt forced or rushed. They even accommodated is with a beautiful inside setting last minute. Add this one to the list!

We weren’t expecting much from any place in The Rocks considering how many tourists there are, and so were even more delighted when the pasta at this place turned out to be superb.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
