We had a large group at Ananas who all arrived at different stages of the night so we were able to take in the lovely cocktail bar as we were waiting and were treated to an excellent selection of wines which has been lacking in Sydney of late. We were eventually seated and were pleasantly surprised with the meals and... More

I met ex-colleagues here after a recommendation and was pleasantly surprised at the decor and welcome. Wine is not inexpensive here, but we were in The Rocks!, and the choice was extensive. Food was good and there was something that we all wanted to eat - but the noise was so bad that we could not really hear each other.... More

Recommended by a local hotel. This was a dinner with business associates, but not a business dinner. Service was very slow. Server did not know the menu and had to keep asking others for help. There were four of us and when we ordered our main dish we asked if it was enough or should we order appetizers. The server... More

We sat at the bar and enjoyed some wine and a few bar snacks. The atmosphere was great and the service very good. The female staff were well presented and attractive and I expect hired for that reason.The food was good but not outstanding. Overall an enjoyable place for a drink and a snack

I visited Ananas twice recently, once for our anniversary dinner and again with my Father who was visiting from overseas. 1st visit was myself and my husband, my mother-in-law & her partner and my father. We had a reservation for 6:30p, which is a great time as they would just be starting service. We all had multiple courses including dessert... More

I really enjoyed Ananas for dinner with friends. The food is French with a Mediterranean feel. I loved desert, Ananas four ways! Definitely worth a repeat visit.

My husband and I had a beautiful evening at Ananas Bar and Brasserie for our anniversary. The service was excellent and the food just right. We had a lovely table for 2 but there were other tables with groups who all seemed to be enjoying the ambience of the restaurant. This was our first visit but we will definitely go... More

We recently had dinner at ananas for a birthday dinner. The service was extremely friendly and professional, and being a French restaurant, all the waiters appeared to be French too. The food was exquisite, particularly from a technical standpoint. I had a duck entree, a fish main and chocolate dessert. The duck and fish were cooked to such perfection. Not... More

We went to Ananas to celebrate my wife's birthday. Had a drink at the bar first and then ate in the restaurant. Everything was spot on. The bar had a great buzz, the waitress was friendly. When the time came to move to the restaurant, the waitress unprompted went to get the person managing the front of house who then... More
