Description: Maloney's has all the warmth, heart and atmosphere as if it was transported from the Emerald Isle. Open 7 days a week, Maloney's has fantastic Bistro Meals, Irish Menu and drink and dining specials. Great destination to head into for a fun filled night with friends or a quite pint or two.

“Good food for a good price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

I visited Maloney's with a large group of friends a few times and was pleasantly surprised. We were staying at the ibis World Square and wanted somewhere close to the hotel were we could all meet and catch up between outings. The food was great and reasonably priced and the beer was delicious (they had a great selection).

One minor problem we had was on the Sunday night we were having a few casual drinks (about 9:45pm) and conversation, when they turned the lights off and cranked the music right up. I didn't do much for the atmosphere of the pub and was a bit disappointing (seriously, 9:45 on a Sunday night?).

I'll definitely return though if we are ever close by!

“The Ports, Good Food, Good Price. Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Stayed in Sydney CBD for 4 nights. Looking for somewhere to eat that was not Asian/Thai, or where a steak can cost you $40-50, just good Aussie type tucker, not too expensive. Very hard to find. Finally found it at Maloney's Hotel the atmosphere, the food was really great, good size meals and not expensive. The service was very good as well. Mid week it was not overcrowded or too noisy just a really nice relaxed atmosphere with good food.
