Enjoyed my night here with old friends. The outdoor bar seating area is full of cool people enjoying a sunny Sydney evening. We used the bar near the front door as it was much quicker than the one in the middle of the pub/restaurant. I only found loos downstairs, and they were super swanky, actually thought they were one of... More

For a place that cost millions to renovate you'd honk they would do something about the disgusting upstairs toilets they smell gross, been to the upstairs venue 6 times and nothing had improved. Downstairs food is good, service is great the only other issue apart from stinky loos is the meat head security guards who ask too many questions. Great... More

I came here for a work function. It took a while to be served at the bar since it was a busy Friday night and the food was so-so (pizza and pasta). I am curious about the rest of their menu items though. They have a decent selection of drinks and their apple cider (on tap) was great. I'd probably... More

After two years going to Beresford on Sundays evening/night to have a few drinks with my friends I realised that since two Sundays ago you have to pay $20 fee if you want to go Upstairs. That is sucks. Now they are performing 3 shows, at 8pm, 10pm and 12 pm. I'm really dissapointed with that decission. Now everybody is... More

Went here with the girls for some bubbly and some lunch. I had the Wagyu steak and a friend had the salmon. We started with a shared dish of pasta. The food was tasty - not super-generous in size - but what you would expect from a "see and be seen" kind of place like the Beresford. The beer garden... More

The Beresford is definitely THE place to be on a sunday night in Sydney. Enjoy great music, stay at the bar or go to Level 1 for a great dancefloor!

The night was balmy and the outside terrace a cool place to be with friends. Lots of groovy people drinking , chatting , laughing and enjoying each others company as they waited for food to arrive to their numbered tables. Our group of four, ordered a gnocchi with lamb ragu , a nice australian twist on an Italian basic ,... More

Booked a table of 8 people for a Saturday night. Yes it was busy. We went and ordered at the bar all at the same time. The everyone got their meals except 3 of us. The remaining meals came 15 minutes later; in this time the rest of the group had finished their dinner. How hard is it to get... More
