“Superb Experience”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

The Pickled Pig offers a limited but
wonderful menu, a very good wine list and excellent service. My selection of scallops, lamb and home made icecream left me very satisfied in terms of quality and taste. The restaurant has a very nice ambience. Noise levels were low. We were a table 7women and right next door to us was a table of 8people which include 2very well behaved little children. A lovely night. Thank you

“Most enjoyable!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

As a vegetarian I'm always tentative about going to some restaurants, especially one like this with a Spanish theme across the menu - in my experience Spanish food is not very vegetarian-friendly. The Pickled Pig was most enjoyable - great service - knowledgeable, friendly, all the serving staff were clearly enjoying their work. The food was good, my companion had the Tasmanian salmon which she said was delicious and beautifully cooked with a very delicate sauce. I could have missed the patatas bravas - thought it would be a bit more than almost french fries with nice tomato-based sauce. The vegetable stew was tasty - a mixture of chickpeas and different herbs and spices. Good choice of wines by the glass or bottle and all reasonably priced. We finished with Crema Catalana which was delicious - very smooth and creamy perfectly caramelised - very similar to crème brulée.

Dear Robert99_12,
Thankyou for dining with us at Pickled Pig Restaurant and taking the time to post a review. We are very glad you enjoyed the food, wine and service. It was very rewarding to read your comment "serving staff were clearly enjoying their work" as we are all very passionate about food and wine. Although we do not offer a lot of vegetarian dishes we are more than happy to alter dishes from our menu to cater for all dietary requirements. We are disappointed that you did not enjoy the patatas bravas as this is a traditional Spanish dish which is very popular with alot of our regular customers. We hope that you will dine with us again at Pickled Pig Restaurant when you are next in town!

“Wonderful service and the food was divine!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

My husband and I booked to go to this restaurant for our wedding anniversary on the basis of previous reviews and it exceeded all our expectations. The food was absolutely delicious with great balance of flavours and textures and the wine list was also expansive. Its one of the best meals we have ever shared to celebrate a special event and its one of those intimate all time greats (and we've been to the top restaurants in Sydney)
