Value breakfast

A table in the sun on a crisp winter's morning, with The Rocks' Sunday Markets bustling nearby. A small breakfast menu, but good-size, good-value, well-presented meals. My eggs were perfectly poached. Excellent coffee and very friendly service.

I understand that they were busy and we did have a large group but we made reservations days before so they anticipated our arrival but we literally waited 2 hours for the food to arrive!! Our drinks came after 40 minutes but they didn't even give us food to nibble on like bread or something! Definitely not worth waiting 2... More

We were in Sydney for a week and ate there 3 times. You got a lot of food for a good price and we always walked away stuffed. I had a small house salad every night and it was well above average and almost a meal in itself. The first night we went we tried a sampler plate for two... More

Supper in heated courtyard. Good seafood pasta and other Italian dishes. Served us even though right on closing time. Lovely limoncello at end of meal.

After our morning shopping at The Rocks Markets, we again chose to have lunch at Caminetto, with its outdoor seating. This was the third time we ate here at this solid Italian restaurant. We shared a dozen natural oysters, sizzling garlic prawns, garden salad, Toscana pizza, and veal scaloppine with mushrooms and cream sauce. Very generous portions that left us... More

Large outdoor area and also does take aways. It was busy when we called and we had not booked but a chap who didn't speak much English said ok and pointed us to a table. No menus appeared and when I eventually asked the waitress she evidently had not been told about us. From then on the service was excellent... More

Me and my boyfriend visited here last week. The place seemed nice but when we entered a lady just pointed to a table in the corner not addressing us at all in any friendly manner. She then took ages to take our order as she was to busy gossiping with another staff member. After waiting for an hour for two... More

This restaurant was recommended by a bellman at my hotel. I checked the reviews on Trip Advisor, which were mixed. My wife and I decided to give it a try, and we weren't disappointed. I started with a beautiful, tasty garden salad. My wife decided to try the Lasagne and I tried a dish I had never had before, Veal... More
