Amazing cocktails

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!

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

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
