At dinner last week, bread, entrees were tasty (although very small) and the steak course was the best of the mains. The swordfish was supposed to be with a broth but there was just a dribble and not enough for a spoon. Wines good. Service very slow and poor, particularly by a male with attitude. Very hot until 3/4 through... More

This is a lesser known gem in Paddington. The dining room is beautiful and the ambience perfect to a slow meal. While the chef has changed along with the menu, it continues to nail it! If possible, I highly recommend sharing the rib eye which is incredibly tender and tasty. And of course the bar next door is always fun... More

I visited Four in Hand the day after going to Benjamin & Daughters - the prices were similar but that is where the comparison ends. Four in Hand was busy, with a buzzy atmosphere. The yellow fish tuna was delicious and i followed that with Flat iron steak which was very tender. Definitely on the list for a return visit.

The dining rooms is still as lovely as ever, the food menu well thought out and the wine list is one of the best. However some dishes (mainly the raw ones) lacked finishing touches (seasoning). Overall we had a great evening and the service is first rate but we probably won't head back in a hurry.

I'm a huge fan of Guilliame, and of the Paddington gastro-pub, so I really wanted to love this place. And it did nothing wrong. Good food, great service. We had the five course tasting menu with matching wines ($85/ head for food and $60 for wine ... not bad) that had some good dishes but a miss in each. I... More
