This was the most memorable dining experience I had in Sydney. The food was creative, as were the drinks, and most importantly, Doug's great hospitality!

It seems that small and eclectic bars are appearing more and more around Sydney, each with their own unique appeal. Look for the white rabbit ears along Elizabeth Street and descend down the rabbit hole to the basement and escape the hectic streets above. The Rabbit Hole Bar and Dining can be described as a relaxed venue to explore creative... More

The Rabbit Hole has amazing food. It was my partners birthday so we went there for a special dinner before attending a show at the nearby Theatre Royal. We had the scallops which were cooked perfectly with an amazing beetroot and pistachio sauce. The beef was the main course for us and it was also cooked superbly and almost melted... More

The list of issues we had during this meal for 8 is long and I wonder how this restaurant survives when there are so many other great places to eat in sydney. While some dishes were quite nice, the issues surrounding the evening truly outweighed the dining experience. Here's a few: - waiting staff were more concerned with getting us... More

Down the rabbit hole you go to the first bar. A bit drafty in winter but hide out in the back bar & you'll warm up. The bartenders seem to love making cocktails & my companion is a fan of the negroni. The White Rabbit Pale Ale on tap is a winner at $7. It's a perfect little spot to... More

We stumbled down the Rabbit Hole for the first time last week, after recommendations from our friends. The venue is split into two sections: bar and restaurant. Both sections were VERY busy with a real buzz about the atmosphere . We started in the bar for some really top notch cocktails. The bartenders recommended what we should have and they... More

If this is your first date, it will probably be your last. Although the people next to us looked at our plates longingly, we wished that we had gone for the burger. Creative flavour combinations (chocolate mash potatoes) and presentation have taken precidence over serving something edible. The atmosphere and place are very nice and if you only wanted to...

Great Burger, it is a must have that goes along perfect with a Cold White Rabbit Beer. The atmosphere is great and the cocktails are tasty with great presentation. There was a delay on cocktails however the bar staff were kind enough to keep us informed on the delay. Would go there again, maybe for the dinning experience next time.

Come here for the cocktails and food, not the smiley service, and you (probably) won't be disappointed. The bar and wait service seems a little uninviting, though the bartender asked a couple of questions and then produced a cocktail that was just spot on. I ordered the fish main and hand cut chips and it was tasty and the right... More
