Six of us enjoyed an early dinner here before viewing Sydney's 'Vivid' festival of light at Queen's Birthday weekend. The food (Middle Eastern) was delicious & the service, very good. We ordered a variety of dishes and shared them - that way we were able to sample as many flavours as possible. We were glad that we had booked, as the restaurant was packed. I would definitely go back.

Went here last night with my partner on a Living Social voucher, and was really impressed with the quality and quantity of food. Service was great, and the restaurant is located in a lovely part of Sydney in Walsh Bay.

Recently had a dinner date here. Located in a quieter precinct of the Rocks, its a very tastefully styled establishment that I stumbled upon by chance online.

Their service is prompt & attentive with staff being very knowledgeable of the menu - always a plus.

Food wise we chose the Vegetarian Platter which was amazing & in generous portions. The only downside was we couldn't finish it!

Would recommend El-Phoenician to lovers of Middle Eastern Cuisine or fans of a good dining experience in general.

We went there with friends and we found both food and service to be excellent. The menu includes all the middle eastern entrees, including many vegetarians options. With the entrees, usually to share, it comes a large serve of Lebanese bread, plain and fried. For mains you can choose a combination of grilled meat or other communal dishes with seafood, fish or meat or to opt for a single plate. After a full round of entrees we had the traditional lamb kebab, which was juicy and delicious. The restaurant has a good wine list, including French wines. The service is prompt, fast and friendly.

From the outset we were impressed with this dining experience. The decor was tasteful, the location was quiet and pleasant and the service was attentive, discreet and efficient. Our group of eight chose the El Phonenician banquet which was excellent and comprehensive. An impressive array of Lebanese dishes was brought to our table over comfortable time frame. Delicious!
P.S - have the sangria...Mmmmmmm :)
P.P.S - Turkish delight not bad either!!
