Great bar to meet up with Friends. Lots of places to sit and eat and drink. not bad to watch sport either it has TVs every where. I didn't have anything to eat but the food looked good. They did look like they had run out of good few of their tap beers. That is understandable after Mardi Gras. The food looked like diner kind of stuff. I was able to get a cans of cider for $4 cheap as!!
I would like to go back on a week night some some food!
The customer service is highly attentive and very accommodating and the food is absolutely incredible. The location is very relaxed and the place has a great vibe. Definitely order the order poached eggs on toast because they cook the eggs perfectly !!! The coffee here is Little Marionette.
Stopped by for brunch on a Sunday. Place had a few tables spare. Indoor and outdoor seating. Their coffee art is pretty impressive! You wont get anything like it in Sydney thanks to their talented barista Chai.
The lovely Chris told us to leave it to him and he would bring out some dishes.
Highlight dishes were:
-Smashed avocado, haloumi, roasted tomato, poached eggs, rocket on sourdough
- Spelt pancakes with banana fritters cooked in coconut oil and coyo
- Slow cooked lamb sholder with creme potato and red cabbage
- Kale, quiona feta, chicken, avoado
- Parsley sorbet on top of creamy base with meringue mushrooms and citrus curd (this dish will wow you pants off - tastes like splice!)
Creative dishes with great customer service. This place is one to visit if you are in the area!
I've been here so many times, I've lost count. The service is always professional & friendly - but not too familiar. And the food is consistently good. Portion sizes are generous, prices reasonable, and the vibe is lively.
The staff have never been anything other than helpful with trying to find a spot quickly for 1 or 10 people. The place is popular, and rightly so. Plan for a wait by having a drink down the road at their bar called Fico (it's deliberately not well signed on the outside of the building - but the staff will helpfully, point you in the right direction). Then afterwards, enjoy your Italian pasta delights. Their desserts are a winner too. Simple, and flavoursome.
Fun place. Really nice vibe and especially appreciate the free popcorn. The drinks are priced pretty comparable for the Surry Hills location - which translates to pretty pricey. But strong imported beer range. Staff are incredibly friendly and fun.
One of my favourite Sydney restaurants. The staff are amazing, attentive, skilled and friendly - without being in the way. I've been many times now with different people, and everyone's always enjoyed it. It feels like I could come here forever and never get tired of it.
Although I wasn't very impressed with the lady who was standing at the front, wasn't very friendly and kept talking over the top of me when I was trying to ask her a question. The dumplings and the rest of the food are the best!!!
Sometimes when you have had dinner in Darlinghurst Rd you want to go to a bar that takes you away from the busy crowds of the local pubs. Eau de Vie is the perfect location to have a relaxing cocktail in a beautiful environment that has a beautiful atmosphere. Friday and Saturday are busy and can mean that you will need to wait a while for a cocktail but you won't be disappointed.
Not the easiest place to find, hidden out the back of a hotel, you'll be taken away by the 1920's decor, and the cocktail list is magical. So much so that Eau De Vie is my choice for a cocktail lounge in Sydney. The service is spot on, with the waitress always knowing my choice of cocktail. definitely one to visit
Love the theme of this bar. You feel like you've stepped into a 50s American themed kitchen. Like the kitsch pineapple lamp on the bar, and the cocktails are always so unusual and menu changes frequently you'll keep going back for more.
It is very hard to miss this place during your walk along the popular Crown St. In the midst of the street field with business, Pieno offers a luscious and beautiful garden-like spacious outdoor atmosphere. It has plenty of seats, both indoor and outdoor, although they do get pretty busy most of the time.
My last visit was during a spring afternoon, and sitting outside might be proven quite problematic as the pollens would constantly fly onto your table, and eventually your dish and drinks.
I had their veggie big breakfast option from their all day breakfast & all day lunch menu. It consists of two eggs with sauteed mushroom & spinach, roasted tomato, potato rosti, tomato chutney and toast. The price was a little premium than its neighbouring shops, but it had beautiful poached eggs and clean elements across the dish with a main punch of spicy tomato chutney.
The staff was quite attentive at the time (which was not particularly busy) and the food comes in just a matter of minutes!
The classic Sydney hidden underground whiskey joint. Hundreds of whiskey choices to peruse and knowledgable bartenders who love to talk you through them and tailor some recommendations. They do a whiskey and fresh apple juice for the non whiskey tragics, and there are plenty of non-whiskey options to keep the otheres happy (with no judgement from the staff on ordering them). Endless flow of free pretzels keep you going for ages.
