Four of us dined at Bodega: our food was good (especially the pumpkin dumplings, gorgonzola, brown butter & sage) but crazy prices (like most of Sydney, to be honest). The wines were expensive too. Other than the usual big bill ($90+ pp), my main criticism...More

This restaurant should be much higher up than this. It’s easily in the top 20 or so in Sydney. A short stroll from Chinatown territory it is exciting food with a Spanish/ Latin American slant. All dishes tasted or looked great. The steak with leeks...More

Our friends took us here whilst we were on holiday in Sydney and I have to say it was just brilliant. Knowledgable and entertaining staff, delicious tasty food. Everything was full of flavour and delivered quickly. I would definitely recommend

Pick your time, it can be very busy and then at 8.30, it seems to empty. Wonderful buzz and good range of small and tapas dishes. Had a long lunch so didn't need a lot but the menu options were so enticing - the staff...More

I’m not sure which I enjoyed more. The food was amazing and the ladies that run the front of house make you feel like you’re home.

We walked by this restaurant and jumped in without a reservation. They asked us if it would be ok to sit at the bar. Which we were. This means you are literally looking into the kitchen. We had three dishes to share and a bottle...More
