This place never fails to deliver.

I've gone here a couple of times with friends and I never leave disappointed.

They have a variety of tapas dishes to choose from ($10 each). These include pan fried haloumi, salt and pepper calamari, tempura zucchini flowers, etc.

Their pizzas are perfect for sharing and they have a good selection to choose from. On my latest visit, a friend and I tried the Peking duck for the first time. We were pleasantly surprised with this as it really did taste like Peking duck - just on a pizza!

Their cocktail menu is also great! They have flavours such as Lychee Bull, Toffee Apple, Redskins and Sexy Time. They're all really refreshing and are individually unique.

I definitely recommend this place and would suggest that you try something that's out of your usual comfort zone of restaurant choices.

After experiencing a few "snooty" staff in various venues nearby, it was great to be so welcomed and looked after at Stacks. Food and wine choices were good, well priced, but the standout was the service - made for a very enjoyable dining experience.

Found this place on the last night of my stay and was disappointed I hadn't found it sooner. Happy hour from 5 to 7pm meant $5 beer and wine which was great and they had a spring menu special where you could choose two courses from a set menu which included a seafood salad entrée, sirloin steak main and I think a fruit / berry mix dessert. This with a glass of beer for only $25. I chose the entrée and main and was more than satisfied. The seafood salad was very nice and the sirloin was cooked perfectly medium as requested. It was the most tender steak I have had at a restaurant in a long time. I would recommend this place any day of the week and would be happy to return.

This was a contiki included dinner for our official first night of our tour. I got the pineapple and ham pizza. A pretty substantial size for 1 person and also tasted good. Also had a glass of their house wine, cabernet sauvignon, which was just ok. We also got desert which was absolutely not bad at all. Will definitely recommend to friends.n

Saw this restaurant whilst walking through Darling Harbour and booked a bench table outside for lunch in an hours time. Came back 45 minutes later with the rest of the family and our table of four had been given to a couple. Had to sit elsewhere. Kids options are about the saving grace for this place. Kids wagyu burger and pizza was great. My husband and I ordered the steaks cooked rare. They turned up well done. When we mentioned this to the waiter he was not happy and unsure what to do. Eventually someone else came over and wondered if we wanted replacement steaks. The replacement ones were cold. I imagine the chef was annoyed with having food returned to the kitchen, that he cooked the steaks for about 10 seconds each side. Yes they were rare alright! The fries weren't replaced and so they was as cold as the kids ice creams by the time we saw them again. Better restaurants in Sydney!
