“5 Star Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We booked to go to the Sardine Room on a Sunday evening - our final night in Sydney. We decided to go for a seafood restaurant and, upon looking on TrustAdvisor, found this to be the highest ranked restaurant. A little more research online confirmed it to be a good find.

From the moment we entered to the moment we left the service was first class. It was a quiet Sunday evening, but even so the full menu was described in great detail and we had a good understanding of what the dishes would taste like.

Between the 2 of us we had scallops, crab, cod and red snapper. The red snapper dish was one of the best fish dishes I have ever tasted. I finished off the 2 superb courses with a sublime dessert that topped the evening off perfectly.

I would highly recommend this restaurant. The prices reflect the outstanding quality of the food and service. With a BYO wine option you can also treat yourself without having to face a steep alcohol bill. If I were to return to Sydney The Sardine Room would be one of the first restaurants I would visit.

“Delicious seafood!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

We shared 3 entrees and all were scrumptious. Main course deep fried whole snapper crisp on the outside and melt in the mouth on the inside. Fabulous service; very attentive and well worth venturing out in the cold evening. My only negative was that it was quite cold inside the restaurant and had to keep my scarf and coat on.

“A Dining Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Angela and Rod run a truly delightful, small European style restaurant and are very happy to accomodate special requirements. Everything is fresh and most dishes could be made gluten free, with no bother. The salt and pepper squid made with rice flour was delicious and one of the signature items, the fish moussaka was also made for me gluten free and it was superb. The food is fresh, the prices moderate and the service excellent. We went twice in our two week visit to Sydney and will certainly go again.

It's truly an experience at the Sardine Room. A Culinary delight in the heart of Sydney with two of the most wonderful people operating it. They will make you feel incredible the moment you arrive. Its a must try!
