I have been to Sixteen several times now, and every time the food has been excellent. I've had a different item from the entrée, mains and desserts each time, (not all of them every time - the servings are generous) and never been disappointed. On the latest visit, I chose the Angus steak. I'm very fussy about steak and would... More

First port of call on any return trip Sydney - always quality, always reliable. Had Italian in country restaurants over the past few weeks and all they did was make me yearn for 16. Quality produce and so many dishes to choose from. BYO is a bonus so you can match your best wine with top food. Value is great,... More

My husband and I have been coming to 16 for special occasions for years and without fail the food the service and charm are always perfect. Cannot fault anything. Today I had the Parmesan crusted dory with pea purée which was amazing. Definitely recommended for a date or special occasion

Had been in Queensland for a few weeks and didn't realise how much we had missed 16 until the dishes arrived - a wonderful diversity of dishes, superb quality and amazing sauces. The duck ragout entrée was so large I wondered why I had ordered a main course bur when the John dory arrived, I knew why. It was done... More
