I'm not easily impressed

Being fromSan Diego and having our own great culinary scene, we are total food snobs and aren't easily impressed. We found this place on Yelp and while it was a hop, skip and jump to get there from our hotel, it was totally worth it. Nice atmosphere and many locals go there. I had a saffron... read more

Wonderful welcome from the proprietor Angela. Came and sat with us and took us through the menu. Asked what we were thinking of having from the menu then made some recommendations. Had Sardines to start and then Crispy Snapper that really fell off the bone. Absolutely fabulous. Finished with the vanilla custard with filo pastry which was delightful. We shared... More

We had late lunch early dinner there after long summer day in Sydney, took us fairly long time to find the restaurant as it's not well located and have two different names. The location is good but the tables were literally in the kerb of a noisy street, but this was not the most annoying thing about the place. The... More

This is a first class restaurant owned by husband and wife team who are dedicated to providing interesting and delicious recipes at sensible prices. The food is very well presented and tasty. The crispt sea bream is outstanding. Well worth a visit.

As with the others reviewers, this little bistro/ restaurant delights in presenting very fresh and flavoursome fish dishes - apologies for the alliteration. Definitely have to book a table, particularly during the Summer evenings, and enjoy the buzz of the Potts Point locale and small talk with the friendly staff. You can Bring Your Own (BYO) wine if you like... More

Every time we go to The Sardine Room in Potts Point, the hostess & owner, Angela is there to meet & greet, friendly, happy to see returning customers , who she looks after as family. The food is always excellent, consistent and plentiful. I can honestly make the following statement: I have never had a bad meal at The Sardine... More

I think the lady that served us was one of the owners, the food was a credit to the chef, and she matched the food, for style and charisma, a great night all round, best night out in Sydney for a long time.

It's cozy, it's family run (husband and wife team and when I was there there little one was snoozing in a basket in the corner) and the food is magnificient. The atmosphere is warm and toasty, like sitting in your nonna's living room. I took my parents here and they were delighted by the service, as the owner took up... More
