A Hedonist’s guide to…

Sydney

Fred’s
A French-style restaurant headed up by Chez Panisse alum, Chef Danielle Alvarez, Fred’s manages to be both elegant and welcoming at the same time, a place of warmth and sensational seasonal cuisine.
Firedoor
Entirely fueled by fire, Firedoor in Surry Hills offers guests an elegant, richly rewarding dining experience, showcasing local, seasonal Australian ingredients and age-old techniques.
Est
To those in-the-know, est. - spelt lower-case and with a full-stop at the end - is the place to come for high-end cuisine and an even higher-end clientele.
Mr Wong
Summit
High-end food high up; Summit scales new heights in gastronomic excellence.
Jonah’s Whale Beach
Marque
Chefs Mark Best and Pasi Petanen of Marque are masters of calculated culinary risk, creating such an exquisite degustation menu here that it would silence even the most cynical critic.
Momofuku Seiobo
Japanese-Australian fusion that could just change your view fine dining.
Rockpool
China Lane
Tetsuya’s
The affable, world-class chef Tetsuya Wakuda (known affectionately as 'Tets' to most Aussies) is lauded by foodies around the globe, and his Sydney restaurant is where the magic happens.
Bentley Bar
Attracting fashionistas and foodies in equal measures, Bentley Bar has struck the perfect balance with a menu of mouthwatering tapas and a wine list to match.
Aria
Otto Ristorante
The who's who of Sydney flocks to Otto, a doyen in the fine-dining world, with Chef Richard Ptacnik's light, Italian menu as well turned out as the designer bag-toting regulars.
Bathers’ Pavilion
This elegant restaurant is plonked on the million-dollar Balmoral Beach pRomenade, a mere metre (or is it two?) from the glistening harbour and frolicking beachgoers.
Uccello
Italian fare in the heart of the Ivy Pool Club - the perfect way to duck beneath its notoriously taut velvet ropes.
Porteño
One of the most exciting spots to open in Sydney of late, Porteño is an Argentinean grillhouse in an incredible Spanish-style villa, complete with white-washed walls, a courtyard and wrought iron railings.
