“Great new option in Sydney.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Food is really tasty but the price point is a little off. Oysters are devine and so are the majority of the menu options. I've never had a bad meal here. The place can get a bit confused on whether it is a bar or restuarant. Service could also be a little better considering thenprice. I think there's a few tweaks that need to occur to make this one of the best spots in Sydney.

“My new favorite Sydney Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Super location, amazing Oysters, excellent menu, all in a open space with good seating arrangements. The staff are very attentive, smart, fun, and helpful. If it was less expensive I would eat here all the time (prices are fine for Sydney CBD)

Try the Hamburger (really good). Go alone and you can sit at the bar and will enjoy it.

“Not cheap but worth the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We ate here after arriving in Sydney, we had the chilli crab linguini which was delicious. The restaurant does seem to be full of 'hoorah henry' types but the quality of the food means you get over this pretty quickly. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place.

“Delicious burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We dropped in for lunch not really knowing what to expect and were delighted with the experience. We both had the burgers which were delicious with duck fat chips, and a nice glass of wine. Friendly efficient staff, lovely decor and ambience. Will come back again.

“Fantastic Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Great food to be had at The Morrison! To be recommended, a good choice of plates to share. We went on Friday evening and it very noisy and the service a little off its best. Nonetheless well worth the visit for the food alone and will go again when next in Sydney.
