After waiting for over an hour for our meal to arrive, and complaint about it at the upstairs restaurant, the excuse given was that there were too many people ordering hamburgers in the bar downstairs!!! We're locals and this isn't the first time that we've walked out of the place. If you you want a hamburger with your beer, maybe...... More

The restaurant is located above the pub which has a bar food alternative . The bit is because the restaurant is slightly diminished by being above a pub . The staff knowledgable and local serve a selection of mains , all reasonably prices , covering the total spectrum of gastro pub delights including steaks ,ribs and fish . Eventhough the... More

We wandered down from the Mariners Court Hotel on a Tuesday night in search of an inexpensive and quick meal and were blown away by how good the food was. Would definitely return. ($4 for a glass of lemon squash seemed a bit steep, however...)

If you are looking for a good pub meal then the Frisco Hotel down by the Navy dock yards in Woolloomloo is a good place to go, counter meals down stairs, and a restaurant up stars, friendly staff and a good meal, at a reasonable price, that's away from the hustle of the CBD..

We didn't stay in the hotel but eat 3 nights in the restaurant. Really good food, friendly staff. Sitting on the balcony you have a few over Sydney. Really nice. And specially for Casey, kind regards from Flipje.

We were staying just around the corner from this hotel. We ate here three nights running as it was soooooo good. Sit on the balcony and enjoy the parakeets ....but more importantly enjoy the food. The staff are lovely but the food......great!!

We recently visited Frisco Hotel on two occasions while staying in Woolloomooloo, Sydney. We sat out on the upstairs veranda which had old world charm and a real ambience about it. Lovely old historic hotel built in late 1800's. Staff are welcoming and friendly. Great choice of meals, ample portion sizes and extremely reasonable prices. We tried the seafood linguine... More

a historic hotel and pub dating from the 1890's, the Frisco Hotel should not be missed in any visit to Sydney. Loacated near Wolloomooloo Bay, the pub features a great selection of draft beers and ales- especially Cooper's Ale, my new favorite thing from Australia. Brilliant food in amole portions in the downstairs pub as well as a few gambling... More

Situated right between Kings Cross and the CBD this hotel has also a lot of charm with an old-school pub on the ground floor if you feel like having a beer or a meal. Some of the locals and the bar staff are very friendly.. Rooms are really basic but clean and tidy, would love more amenities though. But the... More

I stayed at the Frisco Hotel two years ago ( April 2010) and I liked it. Ok, this is a bar mostly offering accommodation but they offer decent Sydney prices @ 60 AUD a night, which was cheap two years ago when the euro bought over 1.75 AUD.....The room I had was 1 or 2, I cannot remember, but it...
