I found this restaurant to be one of the best in Sydney. For atmosphere service and food quality . Certainly for its location in the central CBD area of Sydney.

This was our second visit it to the Esperanto Dining Room at the City Tattersalls Club and it did not disappoint. The room has an old world charm which is aptly matched by the very professional and efficient staff. A practically unobtrusive piano player providing short and very quiet renditions adds to the atmosphere where you feel you've travelled 100... More

I was fortunate enough to experience Esperanto at a Christmas in July catchup with some old work colleagues. Such a lovely dining room with attentive and experienced staff and the food - perfect. I had the lamp rump and it was devine. Everyone enjoyed their meals and if I'm lucky enough to be invited back I'll be going for the... More

Dined there with 3 others and enjoyed the very "different" menu. I had the seared Wild Pigeon for an entree which was excellently presented and was equally tasty. For a main I had Chicken Ballotine which was served with Rabbit Terrine and Foie Gras. I had Passionfruit Gateaux for dessert. All food was excellent. The setting is elegant and refined,... More

We had an excellent meal at Esperanto today. I had the wagyu beef and my wife had the salmon. The service was good and the old world charm of the restaurant added to the experience. We'll be back.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. A throwback to a more elegant and formal time; the service and setting are refined, the food delicious and the atmosphere straight from the twenties. You won’t have to shout over the clatter of cutlery and the smashing of pans from the kitchen, instead you and your guests can talk amicably... More

While we have now 'lost' Victor as a waiter [he was definitely one of a kind] this restaurant still has all the feel of a very upmarket dining experience without the exorbitant prices. The decor and seating arrangements suit so many levels, and the pianist is there but not overbearing seems to sum up this place. You can go for... More

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.
