The food is to die for, but you do pay for it, and for the exclusivity and other bells and whistles. I think the lamb is slow cooked, very yummy and mouth watering. They certainly do hospitality well, and the door girl, Sarah, she had got to be the coolest front of house ever, love her feminine style and pin curls, worth it just to see that.
Porteno has been one of those places that's been on our list of "must try" but we never got around to it. Finally someone organised an event and it was the perfect reason to go and sample what the fuss is all about. I left the food decision power to the people on the table. I was just happy to try a nice repertoire of their foods. We started with their House Bakedread more
I think this is one of the best restaurant in Sydney. It has a very cool vibe and excellent food. Best to go in a big group so you can try as much as possible! The brussels sprouts are a must to order. Would recommend heading to the bar upstairs while you wait for a table.

My mum was told that they could not be seated until all of us were present. Then my husband and I rushed there. Bad luck with the traffic. Until the time we were there (around 7p.m),read more
One of my favourite Sydney restaurants. The food is excellent and the service genuine. It's not showy or pretentious, yet the vibe is great. They are known for their meats, but ironically, my favourite dishes here tend to be vegetarian / seafood dishes. (I am also not a huge meat-eater though.) Come early (it opens at 6pm) or book if you are coming in a group of six orread more
was divine. But so was everything else that we ordered - even the vegetable sides - they made brussell sprouts taste great. Staff were a bit gruff but they were definitely efficient. For less than 6 people you can't book but it would be worth the wait - have a drink in the great bar upstairs while you wait.
