The Sardine Room had been recommended to us but this was the 1st visit. We were not disappointed. An intimate restaurant with a very warm welcoming feel. We were 2 couples who all love seafood & the food was wonderful. the service is personal but not intrusive. a very good choice.

My first review on trip advisor. My wife and I popped in and we were not disappointed. Excellent food, excellent service and I like that the restaurant is not overly big. We can't wait to come back.

Had an amazing dinner there with friends. The owner is a great host with a good sense of humor. The food was absolutely delicious, we all had different seafood dishes and espresso martini for a dessert. Definitely recommend Sardine room for everyone who wants to have fantastic seafood for dinner. Can't wait to visit again!

As the name suggests, this is a teeny tiny restaurant that specializes in tasty seafood. The service was fantastic. Attentive and friendly but not overbearing. The one sardine fan of our group loved his sardine dish, although we were advised that the name refers to the size of the restaurant and is not considered a signature dish. I had the... More

A bit off the beaten track, this was a chance finding and impromptu visit. We were shown, with no delay and great courtesy, to an inside table (though both options are available). The great service, chatty and informative, continued throughout, and helped us work our way through an outstanding menu. The seafood in particular was to die for, and the... More

We dined here with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Fantastic attentive and informative service. We chose all the entrees to share and enjoyed the lot. These were the highlight. Really great spot and will be returning.

Great little eatery. I came here with my boyfriend and had a fantastic time. The food is unbelievably good. The staff are perky and friendly. They have a great sense of knowing when you want them around and when you want to be left alone. We came here for our anniversary and this place delivered everything to a T. I... More

Let me preface this with "we are not big seafood fans"!! but we ate here last Thursday night while staying in Sydney for a few days. We booked for 9pm and took a cab from our city hotel. Potts Point is new to me but it is a very attractive part of Sydney with low rise apartment blocks from the... More
