We had the special brunch during the Bastille week celebration and the food was superb. There was oysters, cured prawns, salmon, tuna, beef carpaccio , turine, pate, and waiters serving canapés . The taste and quality was just superb. Would certainly go there again.

Our first visit to Ananas after a recommendation. In a lovely part of Sydney at the historic Rocks. Nice decor in the bar and restaurant. Service was very good. Seafood a specialty, we had the lobster ravioli which is one of the best dishes I have had anywhere in the world. The pates are a must, smooth and delicious and... More

Ananas has always made an impression. The decor inside is opulent with the restaurant and bar built into the shell of an old colonial wood/stone warehouse. The bar area and the bar in general is very stylish. This would be a good place to meet just for drinks. We were here for a birthday dinner, we went for their 2... More

Great place in the heart of the Rocks area in Sydney (truth be told, this is a major tourist trap are in Sydney actually). Funky place with great decor, pineapple light fittings, rooster painting on the wall, urinals in the male toilet that look like an open mouth with big red lips.......you know, that kind of thing. A cocktail is... More

They’re assembling quite the gun team over at Ananas, what with Citi Service Excellence Award winner Louise Tamayo stepping in as Venue Manager, and Daniel Mussen (ex-Shady Pines) helping kick the cocktails up to the next level. After 8 ($19) is a prime example, combining two of his loves – whiskey and mint – into a sophisticated tipple with a... More

Got off to a slow start with cocktails slow to arrive. They were ok but not fantastic as had been predicted. Then came the food. Delightful tuna and snapper entrees, followed by the most delicious French style mains and generous sides. Desserts were even better rounded of with sip of muscat liqueur. The surrounds were elegant and the lighting just... More

A colleague and I took some international business visitors to Ananas for dinner not knowing what to really expect. When we first walked in we thought it might be a bit pretentious at first but when we were greet with enthusiasms and a smile our fears disappeared. Our waitress was a delight and very helpful. The food was its class... More

Oh my, where does one start? I was eating on my own this time and even got a booking 15 minutes before I wanted to eat! The wait staff were attentive and very helpful. A charcuterie plate stated my French food journey. The entree was very small but was plenty to savour every morsel and appreciate how amazing it was.... More

I went there for my 23rd birthday with the family and it exceeded my expectation in terms of service. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and the food was exceptional. It's definitely a little French treasure in the heart of Sydney.

Ananas was recommend to me by AMEX concierge...AMEX rarely get it wrong and this was no exception. We had an early 6:30pm booking on a Saturday night so we didn't have a problem waiting for our table like some other people have described. The food was excellent. Some of the food on the menu wasn't available but everyone at my... More
