I absolutely adore this cafe and am a regular there! There breakfasts and baked goods are amazing! My favourite is thier salmon and scrambelled egg special... creamy eggs and great quality salmon. All the staff are always so friendly and kind :) Keep up the good work and great quality Uliveto!
The Kross can be grime at night, but in the day this place is buzzing with ppl out for brunch and lunch. The seating is open so on a sunny day you couldn't ask for a better dining experience. Service is great, the food is yummy and the coffee is always a winner.
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.
Most impressed with the service. Bar staff are friendly and interesting to have a chat with while drinks are being prepared. Of course, that only happens when it's a bit quieter and the throng of thirsty swilling hasn't started yet.
Drinks are simple, yet very compelling. The tequila has quite a bit of quick, and I loved that magical timewarp feeling of sinking a few in the dimly lit bar and stepping out into the early evening setting sun realising you are waaaay tipsier than you noticed inside. It felt fun and naughty.
Popcorn for patrons was welcomed, and had the added benefit of keeping me thirsty. I was particularly fond of the Tequila Sunrise.
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.
Din Tai Fung is undoubtedly the best dumpling joint in Sydney and perhaps the world! I can easily consume a dozen of their Xiao Long Bao with its delicate thin skin and warm porky broth on the inside. I have tried my share of these soupy dumplings across Sydney and have yet to find one that betters DTF's thin delicate dumpling wrappers. The pork dumplings are not cheap at 4 pieces for $5.80, but they are a worthwhile treat. My other favourites are the crab meat and roe with pork dumplings and shrimp and pork shao mai. Be warned though - it can be pricey to fill up on just these dumplings.
It can be quite a wait to get in but the dumplings are ohh sooo good. The xiao long bow are the best I've had - in fact, this was the first time I've experience dumplings with soup on the inside... that's right - the inside! The restaurant has a card on the table showing you how to eat them with step by step instructions beside the vinegar and soy sauce. Delicious!
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
"Fashion fades and only style remains"...the same can be said about a bar. To be a truly fabulous establishment there has to be more than just a concept (that in time will fade); it has to offer an amazing experience.
Eau-de-vie certainly has the incredible cocktails, original, well-mixed and stylishly presented but these were not what we remembered. Instead our night was coloured by the terrible service received. I can only describe the experience as similar to a break-up and who goes out on a Friday night to break-up with their staff?!!
When asked for a glass of wine, our staff refused to serve one - yes we get it is a cocktail bar but a simple "we are a cocktail bar and so don't have an extensive wine list but I can recommend x y z.." would surely have been more stylish than a flat out refusal...later on in the night the same staff brought two glasses of champagne to the table instead of the ordered cocktails. Having explained there had been a mix up our friend asked if they would be complementary but the staff rudely informed them there were no complementary drinks at the bar. I then asked if we would be charged extra for the champagne (as they were far more expensive than the ordered cocktails) only to see the staff pick up both drinks and pour them into the cute plastic popcorn container on the table as the staff proceeded to tell us off...staff then returned again with ordered drinks and demanded that we 'discuss' the issue. Trying to diffuse the situation I suggested that perhaps we forget about it and we just get on with the evening but to no avail. As we finished our drinks, paid the bill and sought out our jackets our staff was still hovering trying to 'discuss the issues'.....
It would be great to return to the bar and enjoy the amazing cocktails but I am not sure I can cope with another break-up...
I'm a fan. The place is just big enough that you get a good vibe and buzz - but, not too big to lose the intimacy. Groovy crowd just enjoying themselves without the drunkenness of some of the big bars in the area.
Great cocktails and staff are super friendly and helpful. I've been a few times now, and always enjoyed myself.
The 50's are back and they landed in Darlinghurst in the form of this cool new bar, the decor makes a nice change from the usual dark wood and low lights of so many other bars in the area, foods not too bad, try the polenta chips, pretty tasty, I wouldn't come here if you are a beer drinker, only 2 on the menu and one is a light, but this place is definately worth a visit, for a cocktail and a bite in a fresh new bar that fits in nicely on this street,
Not normally a person to opt in for a sweet breakfast, I was in for a very pleasant surprise when I took a friend's advice and tried Bill's signature ricotta pancakes. The verdict? - I thought I had died and gone to heaven! Those pancakes alone are worth the sometimes hour wait on weekends, but a sneaky trip during the week means I can avoid the queue, and slip straight into pancake heaven.
Bills Surry Hills has a fresh, chilled atmosphere. I'd been for breakfast lots of times before but recently had lunch there. The pesto rigatoni tasted great and the service prompt too. Our waiter sorted us out with takeaway coffee after - a nice little extra!
