The first day of our visit to Sydney, we tried a restaurant in the neightborhoud of our hotel, It was a very pleasant experience and I had one of the best fishdishes I´ve ever had. Calm and pleasant service. Thank you!

I go to Lotus about 4 times a year - nice dark cocktail bar - very cosy and romantic - best cocktails in town. Restaurant always delightful - nice staff and good service.

Went with friends for a birthday dinner. Dishes are for sharing. The four of us shared 8 different dishes and they were all very good, especially the prawn and sashimi. Very friendly service

This place has got the potential to be a charming little find in Sydney. It is in a quiet side street in Potts Point. The place is cute and the food & wine menu well balanced. However, the service is sloppy and the food pretty average. All in all, not too bad, but nothing to write home about.

We had an amazing evening at Lotus on 25th July. Everything was just perfect. Drinks, sashimi starter, mains (the Angus was awesome) and the carrot cake dessert, all delivered by a supernice waiter. And the best part - the bill for 2 people, 3 cours meals, drinks and wine, is the same as a 1 course meal at Sydney Harbour.... More

We must have been there on a bad night because it was terrible! The oysters wouldn't come away from the shell and tasted like a mouthful of ocean. Very disappointing.

Cocktails a little downhill since Alex left, but still the best in Sydney
