We had the festival fast feast - steak perfectly cooked and wines well matched. Mango cheesecake amazingly good. Will return to try the usual menu.

Fantastic place! Modern and funky with a great vibe. Suitable for romantic meal or fun catchup with friends. Wonderful friendly, easy going and knowledgable service. Menu was expensive, as was the wine list. Best pics of the night were fantastic hot spanner crab cakes for entree and the pork belly with truffle sauce for mains. Entree sizing might have been...

You can't say no to the Pav! Gowings has the best pavlova in the whole Sydney area, fresh fruit, coconut flesh and the best meringue, it's irrisistable. The atmosphere is great here and the service is impeccable. The pork belly for my main meal was mouth watering. You might pay a small amount more than some other places but you... More

We booked online for the special Festival offer, which caused some confusion on arrival, although the manager agreed to let us see the special menu, which was pretty ordinary! Having seen the 'real' menu while we waited for the special... More

I have just had another excellent experience at Gowings Bar and Grill. In fact I have eaten here over a dozen times - that says something for starters! Always busy (a good sign), always first rate food and always excellent, informed service. The menu has been superbly curated and the venue has a fantastic, dynamic atmosphere that I always enjoy....

So headed to Glass at the Hilton only to find it shut for refurb.I couldn't think of any other half decent place in the city on a Sunday where we could go but then I thought of the QT Hotel on market...
