Nothing off the charts but very good and consistent quite affordable. Great wine list sadly they've dropped the sherries : ( The fresh figs and goats curd was excellent as well as the Sardines.

We called into this delightful little bistro wine bar at 9pm after a concert at the nearby Recital Hall. We were met immediately and shown to a small table and given a menu and advised of the water choices. The staff were delightful. The tables are very close together and you need to ensure you don't encroach on the next... More

Great little restaurant in the heart of Sydney. The wait staff are very friendly and informative, providing us with great wine recommendations. The Charcuterie is to die for with beautiful cuts of meat served in generous portions. We had two mains - the Spatchcock & Beef Cheeks! The spatchcock was definitely the winner for me. Unfortunately, we were the unlucky... More

Great little wine bar in the middle of Sydney. Have visited for both drinks and dinner. Delicious share type food with a nice wine list. Service is great and the setting is nice, almost like you are in paris. Only negative is that the tables are a liitle small!

In the laneway near to the Ivy; this place is across (and owned) by Felix. Had a business lunch here and it was very good. Great ambience and very Melbournesque dining outside. Well shaded and a good buzz. Charcuterie board was one of the best I've had (no boring old prosciutto on there!). Loved it! There are other small and... More

I've eaten here several times and whether it's lunchtime or pre concert it's always enjoyable. Great wine list and food to share. Casual vibe. Only quibble is the size of the tables - ultra small but you somehow manage with a bit of shuffling of wine glasses and plates! One of the few laneway eating places with atmosphere that Sydney...

Small but very tasty and interesting small and large plate offerings...seafood, lamb cutlets and salads. Lunch crowd was full of business types but the outdoor setting makes it casual. Wine list is mainly international and not over priced. Service is always stretched and not as personable as it should be.

Description
A modern European-style bistro, Ash St. Cellar and wine bar is intimately tucked away behind ivy. Classic café chairs, warm wooden décor and Parisian 'plein aire' seating creates an ideal hideaway from the hustle and bustle of Sydney's CBD. Head chef Zac Ahrens creates stylish European tapas with French, Italian and Spanish influences to compliment the fabulous array of wines. The charcuterie starters are a favourite, but leave room the tart of the day. Franck Moreau, Merivale's award-winning Master Sommelier, presides over a world-class wine list that doesn't disappoint. Now also open for breakfast daily from 8.30am weekdays.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
