“A hidden gem.”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We went there on a Saturday night with a voucher and were expecting the usual voucher treatment. Nothing could be further from the truth. Although the restaurant filled quickly, the service was attentive without being intrusive. And the food,,,,! Delicate flavours and beautifully presented. We'll be back even without a voucher because of this experience.

“High end cuisine in an unlikely location”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Unexpectedly, at the rear of a fashion shop in Sydney City Westfield, lies the restaurant Cara & Co. We had a voucher - I had never heard about it prior. I am so glad we bought it! For $99 we had a 3 course (plus amuse bouche, petit fours and cocktail each on top) for the both of us. It was fantastic! The food tasted as amazing as the food looked! Beautiful presentation and interesting and complex food combinations which just worked. We opted for matching wines as well which was a great addition. Great service too, even though we were mere voucher customers too. So although a quirky venue, the food is of very high quality. Very tempted to go back for the tasting menu, even without a voucher :)

“Cara & Co, truly an unexpected delight!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This gem of a restaurant was a total find. It's located in the heart of the city. While Westfield may be an uninteresting location, it's tucked at the back of the beautiful boutique which makes you forget that you are in fact at the mall. We started with the olive amuse bouche, hawaiian volcanic salt topped butter with sourdough bread. For entree, we had their salmon gravlax and beef tartare, both were absolutely divine. My favourite were the mains, we had the lamb shoulder, which was perfectly cooked and the cauliflower, brocoletti, anchovy and pistachio side made up the perfect summer meal. We also had the veal fillet with the toasted quinoa, i loved the toasted quinoa! Dessert was lime leaf terrine which we devoured in no time! Lastly, we had petit four with their excellent tea selection. All their dishes were exquisitely presented. The restaurant is both elegant and quirky. Service was excellent. They mentioned that the menu is about to change for winter, can't wait to go back!

“Great food, shame about the service”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Excellent food and attentive service but ony after waving staff down every time. Staff delivered dishes then disappeared behind rubbish bins that should not have been visible to diners. Shame.

“All in the presentation”
Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

This little gem is tucked away amidst the city's fashion ghetto. Presenting itself as a concept restaurant, diners walk the catwalk to reach it, and are then treated to fashion exhibits on the screen while they dine. The food is amazing - beautifully presented and each course is a fusion of taste sensations. I found the bombardment of fashion adverts started to grate on me after a while but it was a small price to pay for excellent food and service.
