I usually go to the Bonnie Prince once or twice a year when in Sydney. I look forward to it. This past Saturday, January 14th, 2017, I went and really wanted a steak. I ordered the 12oz T-Bone steak with a baked potato and some fried onions. Ten minutes or so later, my food arrives. First I notice there are... More

The food was unexceptional, but there was lots of it. They had a private dining room suitable for a large group (we were approximately 40 people). The service was fairly quick considering the size of the group. This is not a good place for anyone with special dietary requirements or allergies. Staff were unsure of what was in food, and...

I know my steaks and get a steak almost everywhere I go. This by far is the WORST place for steak. Not sure why reviewers claim it's a great steak. If you like your steak pounded so thin you can almost see though it, then sure. If you ask for a medium rare and you get well done and you're... More

We've been here several times in the past, all have been positive experiences and the food is always tasty. I never seem to get past their fish dishes.

This is basically a pub food restaurant. We went for supper and had the fish and chips which were nicely done. The serving was generous and the fish was typical pub style. The service was efficient and courteous. The restaurant is clean and the washrooms are well looked after. Plenty of parking is available. A good place for a pub-style... More

The Bonnie Prince is a great place to eat. The food is hot and delicious, they have a wide selection on the menu. It is very clean, the staff are very friendly and efficient. At Christmas time they decorate it to the max and it gives you that extra special Christmas feel. The next time your in Sydney drop by,... More
