We were celebrating my partner's birthday and we could not be happier with our choice. The atmosphere, the service, food and wines were just amazing. We had the degustation menu and matching wines. The presentation was really nice and the taste and combination of flavours were fantastic. everything so natural, not with a lot of extra ingredients just getting the... More

We visited as a large family group celebrating a 60th and 70th birthday! One of our family is vegetarian and we always seem to struggle to find somewhere that has a really good vegetarian menu for her. Not so at The Devonshire! Thee most wonderful 'vegetarian' degustation and also degustation for the carnivores, so everyone was happy. The food was... More

We really enjoyed our evening. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were all very pleasant, friendly, professional and did not rush us. We found the experience much more pleasant for example than the current trend of a loud, noisy restaurant with staff who think they are better than the guests. Nice to have tablecloths and napkins. We had the... More

Writing this as I felt like there isn't enough vegan fine dining reviews out there to help out other vegans , so I'm reviewing a bit more on the details side... Booked two weeks in advance, had the vegan degustation. We ordered a rose and pinot noir to go with the meal as we can't handle all the pairing wines.... More

A group of us were keen to try a decent well priced degustation in the city and we were all very impressed with our overall experience. The waitress was friendly and the atmosphere was unpretentious. They were very accommodating and changed a dish because of allergies. All dishes were elegently presented and fresh. The standouts were the octopus roulade and... More

Saturday night meal. Have been here several times before and would say that it is still very good but not outstanding. Perhaps it was a case of over familiarity. Noticed the demographic of diner had changed considerably - it appeared full of chinese tourists, possibly the new target market. Could be tempted back but my verdict is that there has... More

Had dinner here last night with a group of friends. We all had the degustation with matched wines (my wife and I the vegetarian version). Everyone was impressed. The matched wines were particularly impressive. I thought it was reasonably priced give the quality of the food. Service was good. Pacing of food and wine good. Definitely a place worth returning...

We have intended to dine at The Devonshire for a while but for one reason or another never quite made it. Last night we couldn't get into another restaurant and thought we'd try our luck - and thankfully they had a table for us. We opted for the pre-theatre package which was a choice of two courses from the a... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
