Great location, some parking, (would be a little difficult to find without directions).

The food was very nice and its a great spot for a private funtion. We had 40 people and there was plenty of room, (could probably do double that).

Bar was reasonably priced (although not cheap), with a good selection of beers and small wine selection.

The service was attentive and friendly.

Would recommend!!

Thank Simon W

I don't know what's happened to this venue, but it's now consistently a disappointment. The salad we ordered arrived 45 minute late after no less than three requests and was dry, boring and missing some vital ingredients mentioned on the menu!
It is still very popular, I hope they up their game but I won't be back.

I love going to The Grandstand two or three times a week. It is definitely the best option for lunch and beers at Sydney Uni campus and the surrounding area. From the menu, I particularly enjoy the risottos, which always arrive yummy and perfectly al dente cooked.
Everyday the chefs prepare a couple of specials, normally with a delicate touch of Asia, that surprise and make my afternoon happy.

I have also used The Grandstand to work on my own,or have an informal meeting with muffins and perfectly brewed coffee.

Luke Mitchell seems to have breathed new life into the Grandstand Restaurant on No.1 Oval in the grounds of University of Sydney. Just a skip and a hop from Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, lunchtime diners can find themselves elbowing sportsmen, health workers and academics for a table with a view over the sports oval. The menu is small but interesting, and the lunchtime specials seductive. We had chicken breast wrapped in proscuitto on a bed of salad and boconccini. Our friend went for the Salt and Pepper Calamari with potato wedges. The service is adequate for this restaurant's station in life. Out waiter, Francisco, happily indulged us. What a hidden gem this restaurant turned out to be. You can park in the university grounds, for a fee. Grandstand is a short walk from anywhere on the university campus, it is just at the end of the driveway from the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Emergency Department and a short bus ride from the City. They have a wine list, and serve beer and soft drinks. You can also have coffee here. I'm going back.
