We shared 3 entrees and all were scrumptious. Main course deep fried whole snapper crisp on the outside and melt in the mouth on the inside. Fabulous service; very attentive and well worth venturing out in the cold evening. My only negative was that it was quite cold inside the restaurant and had to keep my scarf and coat on.

Angela and Rod run a truly delightful, small European style restaurant and are very happy to accomodate special requirements. Everything is fresh and most dishes could be made gluten free, with no bother. The salt and pepper squid made with rice flour was delicious and one of the signature items, the fish moussaka was also made for me gluten free... More

It's truly an experience at the Sardine Room. A Culinary delight in the heart of Sydney with two of the most wonderful people operating it. They will make you feel incredible the moment you arrive. Its a must try!

Was in Australia on a trip which included Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Naturally, tried to venture to new restaurants. Dinner at Sardine Room, which I went with 3 other friends, turned out to be the best meal I had in Australia! First of all, Angela lived up to her reputation as a fun, gracious host. Her casual manner and sardonic... More

Absolute perfect execution for both food and service, enjoyed everything. The fish was sublime and it is easy to see why the restaurant is so highly rated. Great wine list and nice atmosphere. Book before, a little bit crowded..

The restaurant and food was recommended to me by few friends and they took me there for dinner. The restaurant ambiance, atmosphere, decor and synthetic sense was something one can't forget to praise. Its a small, tiny and intimate cosy property thats also has an outside seating on the pavement of the street. We ordered the fish and chips and... More

We returned to the Sardine Room this year after discovering it on our annual trip to Sydney last year. We were staying at the Blue Hotel at Woolloomolloo (never could spell that) and this restaurant is a 5-10 minute walk away (but up a huge flight of steps-good for working up an appetite). It's small and intimate and cosy but... More

This restaurant was recommended to us with Angela sitting down with us to "get to know us" before making a recommendation. We had lamb and some local wine that was so very complimentary to the lamb. We enjoyed 2 dinners here, and would go back more, except it's an 18 hour flight from home!

Just returned from Sydney and our boutique hotel was literally across the road from this tiny restaurant. Being visitors we couldnt book in advance and first evening were told no tables were available although there were only three tables being used. Thinking we were too early we went next door! However I kept an eye on the vacant tables and... More
