We specially come to this place to try their Kangaroo and Emu pizza (Coat of Arms)! It tastes pretty good! We also ordered Tandoori Chiken Pizza, chicken wings and salad. Overall not bad! Non-Aussies should at least give their specialty pizzas a try!

Excellent location in the rocks. The rooms are basic but clean. The lounge room is comfortable and breakfast was included. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food served in the bar is delicious and they have a massive range of beers.

Definitely touristy, but affordable for the neighborhood and a quirky way to try some Australian game (e.g. emu, crocodile and kangaroo on pizza.) Service is friendly, pizza if decent and drinks are affordable.

We stayed here for four nights and being in The Rocks it was very convenient. We wanted to stay in this area as we were running the Sydney marathon so wanted to be near the start and finish. The room was very comfortable and the lounge area was much appreciated after falling ill and needing somewhere to relax that wasn't... More

What a delight to step inside. This was just a fantastic place to stay in the Rocks District of Sydney. Adorable room, lounge was a great place to relax at the end of the day. Ate at the bar and it was delicious. I will be back and given the location, can't ask for more. ** I did have earplugs... More

En route to the Bridge, slightly away from the general Rocks hubbub, limited variety of food but I recommend the large (12" / six slices) kangaroo/ crocodile and ostrich pizzas & beer in pints! Great atmosphere and service. :)

We were in the city with a group of friends for Vivid over the weekend, and we wanted to go somewhere "quieter" to grab some dinner - it turns out the Australian wasn't much quieter than anywhere else around there, but at least we were able to get a table. There wasn't a huge variety of food on the menu,... More

With Harts around the corner charging about $13 for a pint, and the Australian charging around the $9 mark .. there is no competition. Staff are nicer too, and more efficient (wouldn't be hard) Easy to get a table pretty much any day bar Friday. Pizza can seem a little pricey but the small is enough. This is probably one... More

My husband and I had dinner and drinks here, it was great! It was pumping(even for a Thursday), so the atmosphere was lively. Pork belly pizza was delicious!Is close to other pubs so you can "crawl". Good Aussie vibe :)

I ate lunch here several years ago catching up with friends. We basically ordered a bunch of interesting pizzas with Kangaroo, Emu, Crocodile meat toppings. Wanted to try them once in my life. After all, if no one told me what I was eating, I would have thought I was eating chicken and beef. Check out my photo for the... More
