The Centennial has a lovely comfortable dining room with some terrific round tables perfect for four people and is is nice place for weekend lunch or midweek dinner. The menu has a good standard range of pub fare - lots of steak, roast, chicken and some fish dishes, along with vegetarian - and it is well presented but not brilliantly... More

One of my favourites...the bar areas had been redesigned into a more upmarket lounge bar which is fantastic. The bar staff are very professional and friendly. The restaurant is still of a high standard but a little more comfortable that before the renovations. The food is very good in both the bar and restaurant....if you are a desert lover then... More

Originally a pub, the Centennial Hotel straddles the contra-Centennial Park side of Oxford Street and the oh-so-nice shaded pathways of Queen Street, Woollahra. It is a most acceptable, though sometimes noisy, restaurant in which my wife and I have had some good dinners and a very fine joint birthday dinner party. The Centennial had recently opened for breakfast, so we... More

We went here with friends to experience this often- considered venue and were not let down. We were early and had to wait at the zinc-surfaced bar for a drink, which was ok but I was surprised that we were subjected to a little "attitude" from the barman.. In any event, once the team managed to seat us for dinner,... More

We were taken by our local friends to this local neighborhood pub. the restaurant served up great food in a smart environment. Upmarket and modern pub restaurant. Good selection, great service. Its local so probably not for mainstream visitors, but we found it a great spot for dinner

after years of dining at the Centennial and enjoying consistently good food - on Saturday March 4th we booked to dine early. whilst the flat bread (pizza) entrée was fine our main meals were very disappointing.

Nothing better than a Sunday lunch with family and friends and Hotel Centennial was the perfect choice. The menu is full of old fashioned comfort food and nothing can top a roast on a Sunday for me.

The was my first venture to Hotel Centennial, joint friends in "The Library" for drinks and snacks. The decor was stunning and the quality of food and wine list was great! This could be a more regular stop going forward!

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is top of the range boutique pub food. However on our last visit the prices had gone up 10 to 15% and the size of the servings seemed a little smaller. Despite that we will give it another go just in case our last visit was a one off.

Exquisite hotel, each room is an inviting space furnished to perfection. Terrific drinks list with a wide variety of beer, wine, cocktails & spirits. The interesting menu looked more fine dining than bistro. The grand piano & the extra long boardroom style table add class to this very impressive hotel.

Description
Hotel Centennial's elegant, yet relaxed new look inspired by the gastro pubs and hotels of Europe, establishes the venue as one of Sydney's top drinking and dining destinations.

The interiors feature an eclectic mix of custom made furniture and antiques set against an impressive collection of contemporary photography, creating the welcoming feel of a private home.

Executive Chef Justin North and his team, headed up by Tom Deadman, have stayed clear of any fad dining themes with the food offering and designed a menu that focuses on their take on classic, good value comfort food.
