Dined there with 3 others and enjoyed the very "different" menu. I had the seared Wild Pigeon for an entree which was excellently presented and was equally tasty. For a main I had Chicken Ballotine which was served with Rabbit Terrine and Foie Gras. I had Passionfruit Gateaux for dessert. All... read more

We had an excellent meal at Esperanto today. I had the wagyu beef and my wife had the salmon. The service was good and the old world charm of the restaurant added to the experience. We'll be back.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. A throwback to a more elegant and formal time; the service and setting are refined, the food delicious and the atmosphere straight from the twenties. You won’t have to shout over the clatter of cutlery and the smashing of pans from the kitchen, instead you and your guests can talk amicably... More

While we have now 'lost' Victor as a waiter [he was definitely one of a kind] this restaurant still has all the feel of a very upmarket dining experience without the exorbitant prices. The decor and seating arrangements suit so many levels, and the pianist is there but not overbearing seems to sum up this place. You can go for... More

We visited this restaurant on 16th July and frankly was embarrassed by the choices offered. The food may have been prepared well but the presentation was below standard for a restaurant of this quality and the prices charged. None of our party enjoyed our main dish. I feel the diversity of dishes is important and this was the main reason... More

If you wantt generous, comfortable seating at linen dressed tables where conversation can be private, this is a good choice. High ceilings, heavy drapes on windows and background music from a grand piano complete the experience. Waiters are friendly, eager to please. Food was a mix of good to ok with cured ocean trout / pickled vegetables a standout for... More
