We went here for brunch and sat outside. While the food wasn't top notch, the omelet was huge, and it was particularly enjoyable sitting on the deck people watching. It felt like European service where there really don't rush you to finish. It was a...More

The Vintage Café was a fun, small restaurant in The Rocks district with live music (while we were there). For Sunday lunch, we had options for a full breakfast, or a variety of lunch entries. The fish special, Barramundi, was very good! Each of the...More

$30 special was a fair price for a healthy pour of wine, fish over a bed of asparagus and baby potatoes. Competition here is fierce and I said average because our friends rump roast had very good gravy but tough meat.

In search of a pub type meal but in the open air, we found the The Vintage Café on Nurse Walk behind the main shopping street of The Rocks. Not much to look at, and a single row of tables facing a walkway, it nonetheless...More

We had a pleasant dinner here of a variety of small dishes, all very good. This is a small place, a little hard to find, near the corner where Nurse Walk lane intersects with another lane. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and the service...More

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
