Beautiful historic building, lovely service and perfectly cooked fish!

The grilled sole and steamed black cod was perfectly cooked, mash potatoes to die for! Service relaxed, attentive but not overwhelming. Our only disappointment was the beef burger moist but over seasoned. To finish, the creme brulee balanced well with the lemon sorbet, and excellent coffee.

The restaurant was icy cold which was actually uncomfortable. The table was wobbly and the food was dreadfully bland. Lamb is normally so strong and delicious and this tasted of nothing. The apricots were not confit and the spiced yogurt was drab. The saving grace was the waitress who was lovely, but clearly under a lot of pressure.

Have been here for dinner on 4 or 5 occasions now. Food is fantastic, staff are attentive and the cocktail list is heavenly. My only gripe is the smaller area centrally where couples are squeezed tightly together. Its always awkward to be bumping elbows with a stranger next to you while trying to hold a conversation with the person across... More

We were celebrating a friend's birthday on the 5th of Feb. The atmosphere was wonderful and the attention to detail by the staff in accommodating our party of 11 was much appreciated. The food was spectacular (the duck confit and gazpacho were both delicious and are highly recommended). We will definitely be returning soon.

From the street you can easily see the name of the restaurant. However the entrance is under an archway which leads to busier bars. At the weekends you have to make your way through the bouncers. The restaurant is French in style with a varied menu containing lots of seafood. I particularly liked the bouillabaisse which was delicious whilst my... More

I've now been twice to Ananas; once for champagne and a light supper and one for a three course dinner - both were really great! When I went with a friend for champagne we also ordered the terrine and cheeseboard. The cheese was lovely but tiny portions for $35. The staff are very friendly and helpful. When we ate dinner...

We dined here on our first night in Sydney. What a lovely surprise and great start to our trip. The manager was delightful. Friendly, knowledgable, efficient and charming . The menu was far reaching and interesting. The food was one of the best meals we have had. The fillet of beef ( steak au poivre ) was chosen and cooked... More

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
