We dined at Macleay Street Bistro with a large family group earlier this week -we filled up much of the restaurant!!. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. There were a number of children in the group who were served earlier than the adults which kept them happy. As it was a wedding anniversary and a birthday the staff did not mind our speeches and joined in with good humour! I only felt sorry for the other diners but they also treated it with good humour!
The food was excellent -the oysters superb-the steaks looked fantastic-the desserts were a little over indulgent! Great service too.
The only downside was the location of the "loo'" -out back through the kitchen!
I will return -I hope they get a 'hat'soon they deserve it!

My friend and I booked a meal here last night and we were delighted with its position and ambience. Staff greeted us and we felt very welcome. We ordered drinks and the waiter was able to advise us on which to choose. It was a good choice. Our French waitress explained what the starters were and we chose the salmon and the scallops. Another good choice. The staff were very attentive and most pleasant. Our mains were flat head fish in a beer batter and a fillet steak, both were excellent. We were not rushed and enjoyed the whole experience. After dining in many restaurants around the world this is one I shall look forward to coming back to again and again.

The Macleay Street Bistro is the BEST.

When in Sydney, which is frequently, we always have a meal here usually out the front of the restaurant & we take friends with us!
In 10years it has never let us down.
We ate here on sat night & the new front of the house lady was a real treat, WOW she turned into a French actress when going through the menu, describing everything with such passion.
The food was prompt & cooked as ordered to perfection.

Beverages chosen from the menu this time, instead of BYO! This way everyone gets what they want by the glass.

Look forward to our next visit.
