My daughter chose Li’l Darlin, Surry Hills for her birthday dinner, but being closed at the time she wanted to go, we booked its sister place in Darlinghurst and had a lovely evening sampling a number of dishes and drinks.

Visited on a Saturday with a few friends for birthday drinks and dinner. Cocktail menu was fantastic, massive variety and didn’t take too long to come out. Service was also great. Food was alright, nothing special. Would visit again for the drinks!

Atmosphere and service good but food very average, bordering on fast food. The tapas service wasn’t paced either - just dumped all 5 courses on the table at once. Good place for a first drink and light snack then head somewhere else for dinner.

Bar tender was extremely rude. Had to walk out and not order a thing due to the poor service and attitude of the bar tender! Won't be coming back!

There are a lot of places to choose from at The Spot, and a lot of people choosing them. Li'l Darlin advertised burgers, and we opted for the simple solution. It looked crowded, but we got seated straight away. They're served big, on wooden boards,...More

Fabulous tapas bar with great ambience! Great place to chill out and enjoy a cocktail and the tapas are awesome! Highly recommend the duck pancakes, tempura prawns, prawn and scallop dumplings and soft shell crab! Pizzas and sliders also very good! Staff attentive and friendly!

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small
