Easy access from all the hotels around "The Rocks" - A clean reasonably priced meal.

Travelling with a four year old, granparents and an expectant mother, we wanted a reasonably priced restaurant near our hotel. This was perfect and no trouble getting an early evening table (indoors as it was raining). The restaurant is in several rooms on different floors; quaint but maybe a bit... read more

Pleasant surroundings. Not bad food but not great either. Veggies felt under done. The service was in between relaxed and slow.

We had eaten here on a previous trip to Sydney and had fond memories, so we wanted to make a return trip. What a difference in service a few years makes. We walked up and the hostess/waitress I swear had looks that could kill at the thought of having to seat/serve another table. How dare we want to eat at... More

Food was good, as was the nice bottle of NZ Sauvignon Blanc, but the service was mixed, including spiking our wine, and at the end of our meal taking the wine bottle away before we had finished it! The attitude of the waiting staff left a lot to be desired too. They didn't seem at all happy in their work,... More

I'll start by saying the location is great, right in the heart of the Rocks area, it was crowded with a good vibe, staff was pretty friendly. But the food was bland! Even my salad was bland...It's hard to make bad Italian food so we were disappointed to have eaten here on our last night in Sydney. Especially since there... More

Service here why is beyond what I would describe as indifferent. The wait staff were actually expressing displeasure at even working there. They had no interest in taking orders or in getting them right. The food when it did arrive was almost tasteless. Glass of wine were on the small side. They have fresh pepper but they didn't bother to... More

We picked this place because it had Italian style music playing outside the restaurant and the prices seemed reasonable for the area. The service was terrible! Our waitress seemed to completely hate her job, she was not rude but seemed to careless really. We ordered our food and when it was brought out I asked for more water and some... More

This is a beautiful outdoor restaurant at The Rocks. The food is simply delicious, you definitely won't be disappointed dining here. Staff are very friendly and attentive, lots to choose from on the menu, the vegetarian lasagne is beautiful as were the seafood dishes. You're actually spoilt for choice! Live music adds to the already great atmosphere, Dining here is... More

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
