In an amazing location with stunning views from the top two floors. In the rooms upstairs it has been tastefully renovated and both the top floors have the views. We were refused entry to the top floor as some of our group (6 of us) were wearing shorts and sneakers. We would be classified as "seniors". We had completed a...

We stumbled in here on a Monday night - no problem finding seating outside or at the bar. Service and food were excellent. The Chef was amazing - oysters, salad and the lamp chop.. superb! Views amazing.... My bill included a 10% tip charge which was automatic, not sure if this is a customary practice for visitors only since there...

The quality service, amazing views and cocktails are the go on the rooftop, where there is a small amount of seating outside and much more inside. Downstairs and outside on a Friday is as it would have been for the last 100 years and good fun and a sensational view of the harbour bridge from outside on the footpath with...

Ok pub but prime rooftop is for resturant only and pub has no outdoor seating. We're were ok, few craft beers. Inside is good enough. Didn't eat but the menu looked pretty standard pub fair Pints for $11

Asked at the ground floor bar how to the upstairs bar, where my wife and friends were celebrating a birthday. Wasn't told about the hi-vis rule, nor is there a sign anywhere to be seen. When I got to level 5, was told I was welcome to find the group, but couldn't stay. Ended up sitting in the ground floor...

Whilst shopping in Surry Hills, a shop owner told my partner and I about The Palisades Hotel. This place did not disappoint! We went on Saturday at 11:30am, had a couple of drinks at the bar on the ground level, as soon as the rooftop bar opened at 12pm, we took the elevator up and the view was spectacular. The...

Our hotel stay at Palisades was without doubt, extraordinary. Steeped in romance. The views, the bar, the food – obviously excellent. But it's the staff that make this place magical. They provide attentive, fun and genuine service. A modern take on old world Sydney, our well designed, compact room gave me the feeling of authentic early Sydney. No competition with...

Visited after work for a drink with friends on the top floor bar. What an amazing view from across the harbour and back over Barangaroo. Stunning. The place was full with standing room only. The beer was lovely and cold -just how it should be. Will definitely be back when next in Sydney.

We saw the top level from down on the waterfront, and made a bee line for the bar. Awesome views of the harbour and Bridge and other coves of Sydney, and the staff were friendly and the drinks went down a treat.

This place is fantastic. Somehow combined a welcoming local vibe with a refreshing upbeat modern one. The upstairs bar is great esp for views but we preferred sitting downstairs in the hub and soaking up the atmosphere. Great local beers and drinks on tap and nice touch to pour individual peanuts for each table. Didn't eat here but menu looked...
