Great reasonably priced food and service to match. Really the service is worth mentioning. Just right not pushy or distracted. Food was excellent and generous portions. Smallish so book

Although the noise from the adjoining full pub with Rugby crowd, the restaurant was excellent. Great wine selection with French and Aussie delights. The food was superb evenly matched with great service. Noise abated once rugby was over although some revelers wandered in. Even so it didn't ruin our night out because the food and company made it special. I... More

We had a very tasty lunch with some of the stand out meals being the grilled octopus w broccolini and lime aoli, pork belly and the mulloway. There were plenty of desserts to choose from and the staff were friendly and helpful and plenty to choose from the wine list. This is another gem in the Paddington area.

On a midday Friday, the Four in hand bar was relatively peaceful; we were two of six total patrons. In previous visits, the Four in Hand has been raucous and packed, particularly if Rugby is on - you probably will not find parking and abandon your intention to dine at this restaurant and the fancy one next door. Yes you... More

A family dinner at this restarunt last week was a disaster. Having asked for medium the duck was delivered uncooked, red raw. We asked for it to be cooked further only to have it returned to the table in the same state. The waiter explained poor lighting in the kitchen had made it difficult for the chief. One of our...

Stopped in for lunch - curious to see the changes from the new management . There are no visible differences, but the bar menu was improved. I had grilled fish with hand cut chips - great portions, fish cooked to perfection. My guest had the chilli meatballs - he did say they could have been spicier . Ordered cinnamon doughnuts... More

I haven't visited this gorgeous Paddington bistro for a while (and since it changed ownership) and, if anything, it was better than the last time. The decor is clean and modern and perfectly suited for the neighbourhood Paddington pub in which it sits. Yes, its a little noisy, but we were having a fun lunch with friends and so it... More

Now run by Guillaume. In theory this would be a 'second' restaurant for him. In reality it the ambience is great, the wines by the glass are varied and matched well to the menu and the food is outstanding. The service is very good and the staff know the food and wine well. It's an outstanding restaurant masquerading as part... More

We went to the FIH for an early dinner with friends (4 of us) on a Saturday night and were lucky to get a table upstairs where it's much quieter. The food was great, shared 2 entrees and a main each (with two vegetable sides) and a desert each with a great bottle of red wine !!! So much food... More

We probably ordered badly by choosing the shared plate of roast duck which was far too much for 2 people. Although very well cooked it became a bit monotonous as the portion was too big for 2. There was an excellent wine list. The service was excellent and very accommodating. I shall return to taste non shared plates. There was... More
