We had an early lunch here on a Saturday recently. I had the spaghetti cacio e Pepe, the 2nd time I’ve had this dish at buffalo dining club. It was just as good on this occasion, incredibly tasty. It was quite a large helping and...More

Went here with a couple of friends as they love this place, and i’d heard rave reviews. No aircon and it was really hot inside that day. Tables tiny. Service was quite average, and the first waitress was quite rude and abrupt, the way she...More

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
