“Great wine list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Had a few bottles of wine catching up with friends. Enjoyed some tapas style nibbles that we shared and were just right after a bigger meal earlier in the day. The wine list is big and has some really quirky inclusions, including top flight wines at typically eye-watering Sydney prices (but not doubt cheaper than some of the competition). Service was efficient and friendly but not overly warm. Is a bit dark and the seats not really conducive to sitting on for a few hours while talking your way through a few bottles of good wine.

“Great wines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Decided to venture out into Darlinghurst on the hunt for some new bars. Had read that this was a great hidden bar which it definitely is!!! Hidden down an alley this bar is small but managed to squeeze 8 of us in at the end of the night! Great atmosphere with lovely staff who recommended some really good wines :) Will def be back soon!!!

“A Superb night out with friends at Love Tilly Devine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This bar was apparently recently rated one of Sydney's top hidden secrets so a friend decided that we'd try it out for her birthday night out.

Located just off William street, LTD is a small hole-in-the-wall style bar with a great atmosphere. We were there as a group of 8 meeting up on a Thursday night from 6pm and we got pretty much the last table. The lighting was good and the music was excellent but a bit on the loud side for intimate conversation. If they could have turned the volume down just a little then the ambiance would have been perfect. The food was tapas-style and reasonably priced. The table service was A1 and the bar as a whole got the thumbs up from all our group, so we will be going back, even though none of us live locally.

“Welcome addition to Darlinghurst”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Very good wine, good service, food perfectly matched, this is a casual friendly 'hole in the wall' venue that will flourish or die on service. It was flourishing when I visited and I will be back.
