Limited menu but beautifully cooked

A small cellar restaurant below a bar and hotel. The menu had a choice of only 4-5 dishes per course. We only had mains - a fish dish with pea purée and scallops with caviar, and beef fillet with mushrooms and potatoes. The fillet was rare-cooked as requested, the fish also cooked very well.

Was a bit disappointed with the meal. They tried hard but missed the mark. Felt like I needed to go and get a pizza or Hamburger afterwards as the meal was too scrawny, even for the new standard. I'm no longer a big eater either, but even so, with entree it was still tiny. The taste was good but not... More

We had a wonderful meal at Scarlett's. The food was amazing in every way and the service was excellent. Really creative dishes with interesting blends of ingredients and beautifully presented decent size serves. Decor was simple and relaxing and made the most of the 19th C sandstone. Bonus, not advertised, any three courses for $69.

Part of the Harbour Rocks Hotel it provides a continental breakfast buffet which is ok but not extensive. It also has an a la carte hot breakfast menu which looked good but in reality the quality of the food (I had eggs benedict) was mediocre.

Fantastic mid-week meal with friends at the Scarlett Restaurant - small but excellent menu - salmon, pork belly, steak - usually Sydney favourites. Excellent staff and service throughout. Did not have time to drink in the bar at the hotel but looks superb. Great to have a quiet place in The Rocks that favours conversation and keeps the music to... More

After making the decision to treat ourselves because we hadn t done much for NYE for a couple of years, we settled on the Harbour Rocks Hotel's NYE dinner. Whilst all such affairs are considered pricey, we dived in. For our $499 per head, we enjoyed pre-dinner Louis Roederer NV Champagne and oysters served natural, daikon and with cucumber vinaigrette... More

Food is wonderful and reasonably priced. One of the best meals experienced in lovely setting. Can be a little hard to find but worth the effort. Easily one of the best restaurants in the Rocks.
