I held a function at the Arthouse Hotel for a 21st Birthday. We were in the Beautiful Attic Room, the lighting was perfect and complimentary to the artworks. The event co-ordinator was very helpful. It was a fantastic night.. The evening was truly successful and wonderful, it was the perfect venue, the canape & platters served was superb, the staff... More

Food servings are generous and excellent value for money. Steaks and the fish and chips (huge serving) are best. Lovely interiors and a convenient location on the heart of the City

This was my second visit in just over a month. Restaurant upstairs is now called Grafitti. The decor is gorgeous, the wait staff were very attentive and knowledgable about the wines available. The food was good quality and the serves generous. The apple and raisin ravioli with custard was delicious. A nice place for lunch in the city that is... More

This is a converted Art School, turned into a multi-level pub, bar, restaurant, event centre. We had lunch here on two occasions on the ground floor, and while not great food, the service was brisk, the beers were cold and we were not hungry at the end. The overbearing loud music makes it difficult to have a business conversation. Worth... More

We stumbled across this place while in the city for the weekend. We ate in the restaurant upstairs and the service and food was fantastic.It also had a lovely atmosphere. Is very reasonably priced too. We will definitely be back next time we are in Sydney. Highly recommend this place

I used to love going to the Arthouse, it was a great place to kick back and enjoy food, wine and the beautiful art littered on their high walls. Perhaps they have changed ownership since their glory days, because it certainly isn’t what it used to be! Last night I went to the Arthouse to catch up with some friends... More

Turned up today with 8 colleagues; had reserved a table in advance. Ordered under two numbers within 5 mins but meals came out over the space of about 30 mins and I had to wait about 50 mins for mine to turn up - by which time some of my colleagues had already finished. Food was disappointing too, $18 for... More

Visited for the Dr Sketchy session on a Tuesday which was great fun, a very different night out and had some food to accompany. The food was reasonably priced and did the job. The whole experience was fantastic though, definitely recommend!

The Arthouse Hotel has a bar on the ground floor and the Dome restaurant upstairs. We had a look at both and as we were in a rush to get to a show, opted for the bar. I disagree with some of the previous reviewers - a bar is a bar and one shouldn't have great expectations. In this case... More

We were at the bar as a group of ladies for a birtday celebration. Our food took more than an hour to come out and was really quite bland. Don't expect much from this place!
