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.

If you check in on instagram or facebook, all the cocktails are $10! There is a great variety of drinks. The staff were fantastic and they even do dinner here. One cocktail had fairy floss pouring out of it which ended up melting into the drink. Delectable!

Francesco and the staff did a wonderful job hosting us for a great hen's night dinner. They delivered a lovely set meal to our group and it was all delicious. Loved the blood orange margaritas, espresso martinis and pizza selection! Thanks so much to all!

A group of friends and I had dinner and drinks at Li'l Darlin on a Saturday night. We had a booking and given how busy the bar was and a slight change in group number, I was pleased they were able to seat us all together. The food was mediocre. The "tapas" we had were hit and miss - arancini... More

Twice I've been here and both times I was very impressed. The extensive tapas menu would satisfy any needs - I personally recommend the chicken schnitzel on flat bread for $15 and its quite filling for one person. The assorted dips tapas is also a good choice if you're looking for different flavours and can be easily munched on in... More

I visited the Darlinghurst Lil Darlin a few weeks ago, on a Friday about 6pm. we were greeted and seated almost instantly. Service here is really great they come to your table and you can order from there which makes it really convenient. Staff are also really attentive. We ordered just the dips and bread plate as we were going... More

Every time my partner and I are in Sydney we make sure we always have dinner here. The cocktails are amazing and so is the food. A little pricey but worth it for the quality.
