Great Bar

Great food and some interesting drinks! Try the Hot Dog or the Peking Duck roll. It's making me hungry just writing this review.

From friendly service, to amazing cocktails and delicious food, Li'l Darlin was the perfect spot to catch up with friends on Friday night. I reserved an area near the front for around 15 people and we had plenty of space with flexibility to move the tables and chairs around throughout the night. We ordered a few pizzas and snacks and...

Came here late on a Saturday after having a meal in restaurant. This is quite a cool bar with a European Style atmosphere. There is a wide selection of cocktails - a little on the expensive side. Service I would say is a bit average, being a bit slow and staff not too friendly. Otherwise would recommend coming here for... More

I was here on Saturday night for a Hens Party. We were promised our own sectioned off area and when we arrived we did not have this and we were seated at a long table with a big pole in the middle separating our group into two. There were not enough seats for out party so some of us had... More

Myself and my partner went to li'l darlin for dinner this evening, we were quite hungry so decided to order starters and main course. We were waiting for quite a while for the food to appear and when it did the starter and main course came out together. So by the time we had finished our starter our main course... More

Me and my friend go there every time we are in Randwick o watch a movie. We tasted all cocktail menu, one more different than the other, delicious! Price is reasonable, and the food menu is also very good. They are more share plates, but the chorizo pizza and the fish burger are to die for!

Went out for a catch up with a couple of friends and was not let down! The food was amazing especially the Peking duck pancake rolls and soft shell crab! Service was attentive and very helpful with any requests we had! Will definitely be going back regularly!

What a surprise from this "lil boutique bar'". The staff were very accommodating considering the crowds and busy time of year. Our group thought that maybe the tapas would be pedestrian but again we were surprised by the variety and flavours presented. The soft shell crab, meatballs and antipasto platter were ..... a sheer delight. The staff were funny and... More

Wine glasses were really dirty - gritty on the outside. NZ Pinot was seriously suspect. Cheese was pedestrian. Give it a miss.

Right next door to the Victoria room. This place is owned by a very friendly man, sadly it closes at 12am but the drinks are great. There is a great cocktail that has persian fairy floss - yum! The place is reasonably priced, attentive staff and modern decor.
