We were looking for somewhere to replace Wildfire and saw an article in the weekend paper about Ananas. We've now been there a number of times and although it is at the higher price range this is in the heart of The Rocks in Sydney with great ambience in the bar area as well as in the restaurant. Staff were... More

We went to this restaurant with another couple to celebrate the end of dry July The food was excellent as was the service However I think its a little overpriced Would recommend this restaurant as a one off place to go for a special occasion

Given we had 5 people in our party for a lunch and the write ups reviewed prior to booking, this was a disappointing experience. Whilst the quality of the food was good, the service lacked attentiveness and the portion sizes were considerably inconsistent. We had to finally ask for water, then had to ask for service to take our orders.... More

Ananas is right in the centre of things in the Rocks. Food is good, not what I think of particularly as French, its more that the restaurant is themed 'French'. We were there as two couples so it was easy to talk but it could be trickier with larger parties. The restaurant decor is great, mixing the industrial interior with... More

4 of us celebrating a dual birthday and very well looked after by staff who knew it was special night for us. This was my 2nd time here. Food is superb, great atmosphere, and service impeccable. Will definitely return. Ask for a banquette seating - makes the night even nicer!

As soon as we were seated, the waitress rushed us to quickly order our food and gave us strict instructions that we must vacate the tables by a certain time so they can get ready for the 2nd sitting. This is unheard of for a fine dining restaurant. The waitress was very inattentive, and she did not even take our... More

Meal was ok. If im honest, from all the hype i actually expected more. Service was SLOW. Like ridiculously slow. We were also rushed towards the end, after they took their time all evening, so we could be out before the next sitting. We were a table of 10 and it really left a bad taste in everyone mouths.

This place came recommended by local friends. The food was exquisite and the decor lifts the whole experience. Their Citrus-pistachio creme brulee,lamb shoulder and snapper-risotto are a must have. I am not a snicker's fan - but hear the dessert is not to be missed.

Three colleagues and I enjoyed some good food and excellent wine at Ananas on a Friday night. The atmosphere is good albeit too loud for comfortable conversation and the service was a little slow but that's ok. The thing that spoiled it for me was that we were asked to leave the table for their second sitting after spending over... More

Went here with a group of eight business colleagues after work for a social night. It was a nice night but certainly the noise level meant you could only talk to those directly near you. Food was good but not distinctly French. The service was good but the mains took an extremely long time to come which made the evening... More
