To start off with, we ended up going to the restaurant 3 times over a 7 day period in Sydney. It started off as a business dinner and the food/wine was just amazing. Burrata with Beetroot, Leek Pastry, Ravioli... Pretty much anything/everything on the menu...More

We had an excellent meal at the Pendolino. The service was impeccable and the ambiance lovely. Just the kind of restaurant we love. The reason for only 4 stars. Why not have a dress code. Everyone was nicely dressed, until a couple and their young...More

Have been here several times over the last few years and it’s an ideal place for a business meeting and social gatherings. The food is always cooked and presented beautifully to a very high standard and has very attentive staff to match.

Pendolino is the 'sister' to La Rosa at the other end of the famous Strand Arcade in Sydney. It sets out to be more of the 'fine dining' version of the two, whereas La Rosa is a bit more rustic and relaxed. I didn't think...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

Sorry it has taken so long to reply. Have only just noticed the message and you have probably already been there by now. Anything from smart casual to elegant is fine.
