Loved it.

The retuarant is tucked away in a lane way and it feels like an adventure as you enter the via the hidden door and walk the long concrete hallway to the restaurant area where the room opens up. Loved the ambiance, the staff were terrific, very attentive and helpful and the food was great. Designed... read more

This restaurant was recommended to friends of ours for a dinner for four on a Saturday night. On making the reservation by telephone, we were advised that there was no seating at the regular tables, fitted with comfortable looking wooden backed chairs, but we would be able to sit at a high table (with equally high stools), so we were...

Chefs who know how to cook with a incredible understanding of flavors & textures along with waiting staff with knowledge of the wines to compliment the food, a great recommendation from my foodie friend and a perfect end to an amazing 3 weeks holiday. I wish this restaurant every success as it truly deserves it.

The Berta team know what they are doing. Great wine list - high quality food prepared with care by very accomplished team in the kitchen. I recently took a friend from New York who loved every bite.

The restaurant itself is kind of cool, and makes you feel like you've found a secret spot. When you go in, it's definitely buzzing but they've packed in the tables a bit too tightly and you can barely get in/out of your seat without asking your neighbour to move over a bit. There are 2 seatings, which is a bit... More

If you like to experience great food, savour every mouthful, and be told all about from someone who actually knows what they're talking about, then this is the place for you. It has been a long time since I have dined at a restaurant where culinary creativity and enthusiasm for what the customer eats has been so obvious and enjoyable.... More

Unfortunately, Berta disappointed tonight. $75 banquet didn't go far and leaving still hungry never a good sign. Being charged $20 for bread is a bit mean.

Three of us are regulars at this restaurant and were fond of the Tuesday night sagra. Went on 3.2.15 to find their great chef was on holidays.... Unfortunately their new chef needs to take cooking lessons 'cause I cook food to that standard and I don't cook! Harsh you might think...... But can't anybody throw a handful of mixed lettuce...

Great innovative food, always a surprise and matching Italian wine. Price is reasonable for Sydney which became an expensive place. The Tuesday nights Degustation menu - unfortunately- is coming to and end due to the departure of their Chef. This place is a real treat!
