The term 'hidden gem' was coined for the Oxford Social, a superb bistro anonymously tucked away on Oxford Street. Service is 'par excellence', attentive staff, willing, able and enthusiastic. We had three grazer dishes, and a bowl of nuts, these proving to be ample for the two of us. The scallops were gently seared and served with a slither of crispy bacon - delicious. The autumn salad was tasty and tangy, the pear and the feta matching well. The 'to die for' dish was the arancini balls, a melt-in-the-mouth array of flavours. For dessert, we shared a crème brûlée, which was creamy and richly textured. With three glasses of wine, the bill came to $86 without tip, which we thought outstanding value for money. I appreciated the waitress bringing the list of dessert wines by the glass when I ordered dessert. The ambience that everyone writes of was not too obvious, which I put down to Sydneysiders being out-of-town with school holidays. If possible, ask for the table by the window so you can people watch Oxford Street. Fully deserving of its high ranking on TA.
