I arrived at the Sheraton on the Park in Sydney on Saturday night without a dinner reservation. While the hotel did accommodate our table selection, I found the food to be just OK, certainly not as "spectacular" as the prices would indicate it would be. I ordered lamb. It took way too long to get to us after a side... More

Dinner this week at Bambini Trust - just great. Good (not too extensive) menu, service great, food excellent, very good wine list, and terrific ambience. Definitely worth a visit.

We have been a few times to this fabulous restaurant when in Sydney and each time has been a treat. The food and wine are fabulous but so too are the staff.

Whether breakfast, lunch or dinner this place continues to produce outstanding, superb food. Beautifully presented, the staff are fabulous and so very helpful. We make this a "must go" place whenever we visit Sydney

We went here on our first night in Sydney after a long day of travel from the US. It is a businessman's type of place and it was near our hotel. We had a very friendly waiter and our food was good but not great. The ravioli was quite good but the expensive caprese salad was tasteless. The other main... More

This is a very lively place opposite the expansive Hyde Park in Sydney. The bar is full of young and trendy folk during happy hour. The restaurant/bar offers two menus at dinner time, one more elaborate and the other simpler. Both include some unique items. The Alaskan crab salad I had was fresh and refreshing. The spagehttini had a piquant... More

We had two salads and paid 60 US Dollars. That is really all. No wine nothing.. You can make the math... The ambiance is ZERO. Small, dark and little shabby looking. We had disappointing experience. The service was friendly and personal but that is all about it. Would never eat there again.

Had a leisurely lunch at Bambini Trust with a friend last week and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We sat inside as the weather promised to turn nasty and Elizabeth St can be noisy. Although the lighting is a little subdued for my liking (as in, I had difficulty reading the menu), this is but a small criticism of a venue... More

This review is for the wine room which is attached to the restaurant. The room has a lovely European feel to it, with soaring ceilings, dark wood. gilt mirrors, chandeliers etc. On a warm evening they will open the French doors with a nice view onto Hyde Park. Very good selection of wines; 20 pages in all with nearly 30... More
