    Overpriced. For the price we paid I would expect more. The food was good but there are better value restaurants nearby. It was so noisy I couldn't even hear my partner across the table.

    Come early as fills up quickly. Food is incredible; all sharing plates. Dumplings, lamb & chicken skin were the winners!

    One of my favorite spots in Sydney. Faves: the croquettes, pork buns, tamale, and you MUST get the scallops.

    Go in a group of 7, order the entire menu to share with two bottles of tinto then moscato+postre = $70pp for the most interesting and delicious fancy dinner ever. Loud music my only complaint.

    The Beef Empanada out-does any I've had in Sydney; scallops are a mouth-gasm. The Kingfish is clever too... Wow!

    Looking for tapas? This place is great - but busy, and no reservations. Ask them to call you when a table's ready - and you can hang at the Foveaux Resturant & Bar around the corner. Check http://bit. Read more

  • Anotherasianfashionblogger ..
    Cocktails abit pricey but they were fantastic. Service was very effecient but the smoke from the kitchen got to us, needs better ventilation.

    Personally think the swordfish is over-rated on these tips compared to other dishes here. But still good
