The wine list was good but the food was a little disappointing apart from the snails and the onion soup both were very good. The service was very slow, they just didn't have enough staff working, which meant we basically took care of the wine pouring ourselves (not a big deal)but it is always good when you feel that you...

Had a great lunch here overlooking Circular Key and the Harbour Bridge. The food - a bouillabaisse - was delicious - copious amounts of fish, shell fish and mussells. The wait staff were attentive but not obsequious. The view was stunning. It was quiet so that conversation was possible.

We caught up with friends on Saturday night at this restaurant on a recent visit to Sydney. The decor was dated and tired and not promising for a good night. On the plus side the service was very good, friendly and knowledgeable. The wine selection is good. However the food was terrible. A very limited and unexciting range for a... More

Had lunch with a friend and was firstly very surprised how our shoes were sticking to the dirty floor. Next, our waiter thought cracking jokes at us and saying things like "I'll bring you a wine glass and straw" was funny. I asked for 2 pieces of bread and he said "no". Humour, no, rudeness, quite possibly. Then came our... More

I'll confess that this is one of my favourite places to eat when I'm on my own in Sydney. A bright, fresh menu is offered to the solo diner and the wine list suits the style and ambience perfectly. Service is good, particularly if you sit either at the bar, in the Parisian fashion, or nearby. A good view of... More

Overpriced, underwhelming and a poor shadow of what Ananas Restaurant used to be. Had dinner with three work colleagues, expecting something similar to the old Ananas Restaurant in the Rocks area (now closed). Decor is a tired old and dirty disaster. Food was of a lower quality/quantity than expected. For example, I ordered Steak au Poivre, which arrived as a... More

The food was nice, average prices. Not sure about the drinks as we had water. This new restaurant is in the Barangaroo Precinct and whole area is lovely, all new and vibrant. On the water and will soon have uninterrupted views.

Fabulous early evening before a show at the Opera House a very short walk away. See had reservation and glad we did. Filled up fast. Food was very French. Service was better than French. Good wine selection and Australian recommendation. Lots of French wines. Wait staff and manager were very attentive and helpful. I seldom give out a high score!😊

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
