First off, the food is sensational. Not large portions but very tasty and worthy of slow eating. The Waygu beef was outstanding and the duck leg exquisite. The dessert was, as always, first class. What was not so good for me was the wine matching. Far be it from me to complain but the amounts were small compared to our... More

An amazing combination or food, art and science. Had the 9 course degustation. Was a fantastic experience but was a long evening. 4 hours + of dinning was too long for me

I'm drunk on the beautiful experience I've just had at Sidart. Exquisite food topped only by the best customer service I've ever had. Well deserved accolades.

A set menu isn't for everyone, but each dish is exquisite in it's artistry and taste. Our friends have a lot of things they dislike, but were blown away by each dish. Try this restaurant if you want to broaden your horizons with different meats/fish/seafood or ways of cooking it. Only downside is the restaurant doesn't exude romanticism in it's... More

Having visited this restaurant in its early days and found the 'Art' of the food too much (more focus on the presentation, which was beautiful to look at, but less on the actual food) I have taken many years to return. However, wanting a memorable evening for our annual 'best' dinner with my visiting parents, my foodie friends said I... More

My friends and I were utterly delighted with Sidart. First off, the service was impeccable - attentive, polite, knowledgeable, and fun. And the food was exceptional. I'm a naturally analytical person, but I gave up trying to identify everything I was eating, and just sat back to enjoy the ride. One dessert course in particular had me bouncing around in... More

I honestly think this is one of the best meals we have ever eaten We appreciated every aspect of the degustation, from the warm, knowledgeable and welcoming service, to the beautiful crockery and exquisite presentation and the delectable food. The dishes were so well considered full of complementary and mouthwatering flavours. We will be telling all our Australian friends and... More

We've visited this place a couple of times in the last year and on both occasions we've had outstanding food and very good service. We've dine on a Tuesday when they try out various dishes for their next 'tasting menu' - the food combinations and clever play of the palate is just brilliant. The situation of the restaurant is rather... More
