I was taken by friends to this restaurant largely because of its name. Bentley cars are my favorite! I don't know if there is a connection but it was kind of them to think of me in this way. I was neither impressed or otherwise by the restaurant I found it fairly good but not outstanding.

I took my Mum to dinner here for her birthday on a Saturday night. We arrived a little early and we're happy to have a drink at the bar but the staff asked us if we would like to go straight to our table which was nice. There is only the Saturday night tasting menu on offer this is noted... More

I don’t know if the Bentley's name was inspired by the luxury British car, but, if so, it has every right to share that reputation. Described as one of the best and most elegant places for lunch in downtown Sydney, this restaurant offers a selection of raw and cured oysters, scallops, prawns, and dried meats. Having visited the place a... More

So the building is awesome - from the front steps through to the venue inside you are struck by the enormity of the place, the history the grandeur but it is not intimidating. Instead it has a warm cozy feel and you feel encouraged that you are about to have a good night. So the wines and cocktails on offer... More

Went on a Saturday night when the choice was between a 5 or 8 course tasting menu. My wife and I had the 8 course menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. My wife is vegetarian so she naturally had the vegetarian option and rated this as the best she has ever had! The food was delicious, wine excellent and the service... More

Heard plenty of good feedback about Bentley so went along last night for a meal with a friend. Service was very good, wine selection and service was exellent, the food was what disappointed me slightly. I wouldn't recommend the kangaroo and pork loins good. But overall just ok for a fine dining experience.

Very quiet and comfortable dining in a hotel setting. The food was very good but not quite what I was looking for. The service was very attentive and the all the staff hustled to make for a great dining experience.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
