“Wine heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

What a lovely find this was. A first class wine bar and restaurant with an associated wine shop, all in the vibrant Rocks area. There are lots of wines, from everyday to very special (including Grange), to taste by the glass, and all kept under nitrogen to maintain freshness. We ordered a white flight and a red flight, each consisting of three tapas style dishes with three tasting glasses of wine. It provided a wonderful range of tastes and the food was all well cooked and nicely presented. We finished with a cheese sharing plate, which was a well-chosen selection of four cheeses, of contrasting types, with three accompaniments. These included something which was quite a revelation - honeycomb with olive oil and garlic. This went better with the blue cheese than anything I can remember tasting. Really excellent, and if you are interested in wine, this is a place you must not miss.

“The best Beef I have ever had!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Oh my god!!! Sean Calliste the chef is amazing here.... I had the Baby Beets to start followed by the Slow braised Beef short ribs, then the Creme Brûlée... I cannot rave more about this delightful restaurant which is found in The Rocks area of Sydney. Wonderful atmosphere, beautiful wines and very friendly and welcoming staff. I would come back to Australia just for this restaurant.

“superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

well lets keep this brief, I spilt some food on the floor and I just picked it up and ate it. That sums up our trip here to the Odyssey. Just fabulous staff and the wines are amazing, I loved the french waiter we couldn't understand it made me feel I was right back in Paris. The wine room is just a dream come true. This place is like wine porn! I'll be back for that fantastic SGM. Oh Man I need to go sleep now.

“Finest Australian wine experience in Sydney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Where do you find handcrafted wines from small and exclusive Australian producers? Nowhere else but at Wine Odyssey in The Rocks. Small delicious dishes accompany the vast variety of wines you will not find elsewhere. Go for a tasting of some 70 wines from all over Australia, or half a glass, or if you like it a full glass. Don't forget their wine store next door where you find exclusive small lot gems. Try it!

This is a great place to taste Australian wines. A great set up with pay by the taste or glass with some excellent food options. We loved it.
