Finding the best restaurants in Sydney doesn’t have to feel like a game of hide and seek. So, we’ve put together a host of favourites that keep the locals coming back for more and attract the attention of the culinary crowd.

The best go-to for a Mediterranean feast: The Apollo

With a perfect combination of fine dining but the warmth of a family table, The Apollo on Macleay Street provides a great spot for inviting all-day dining. Offering a menu that fuses Australian and Greek cuisines, it’s no surprise The Apollo ranked highly in Gourmet Traveller’s Top 100 – 2019 Australian Restaurant Guide.

The long table at Cho Cho San has seen its fair share of return visitors for two reasons – the inventive, tantalizing dishes and artistic cocktails. Along the sleek backdrop, the artistry of the food comes alive, offering a fresh selection from the raw bar to charred delights from the hibachi grill. And if you’re in need of something sweet to top off your meal, we can’t go past the Chocolate & Shisho Brulee.

The best community-loved Chinese eating house: Billy Kwong

Billy Kwong is more than just a restaurant – it’s at the heart of the Potts Point community, with its delicious meals also enjoyed by visitors at The Wayside Chapel. Masterminded by ethical eating and sustainable food campaigner Kylie Kwong, Billy Kwong has long been a staple for those in search of a nourishing, wholesome meal that incorporates the freshest Australian native ingredients.

The best wine list (that can accompany food): Bistro Rex

Bistro Rex has gained a reputation for its sommelier service that has access to an extensive list of over 300 French and local wines. In between glasses you’ll be tempted by the sharing menu and Modern French dishes including French Onion Soup, Steak Frites and Parisian Gnocchi. And a quick heads up – don’t try to test your willpower against the Apple Tarte Tatin, because you’ll lose.

The best gourmet Italian experience: Fratelli Paradiso

In the mood for refined Italian cuisine in an atmospheric dining room? Fratelli Paradiso lives up to its promise as a paradise for fresh, lively dishes that won’t disappoint. We can’t pass up the handmade pasta dishes, including Tagliatelle Ragu and Scampi Spaghetti, which conveniently pair deliciously with their host of fine imported wines.

The best spot for Yum Cha: Fei Jai

On Challis Avenue sits Fei Jai, serving Chinese food with Sydney attitude. The dark, brooding space draws in a crowd who appreciates their seasonal menu. On the weekends they offer a substantial Yum Cha menu and a simple yet tempting dumpling menu throughout the week. You’ll know one thing for sure after your visit to Fei Jai – flavour is king.

The best food with French flair: Macleay St Bistro

Macleay St Bistro doesn’t shy away from Australian influences. Rather, they’re embraced in this classic French Bistro nestled at the ‘Paris end’ of Potts Point. Opening its doors to diners for over 30 years, this bistro prides itself in its classic menu that’s built on a foundation of seasonal offerings. And when it comes to dessert, there’s no denying their captivating spread of Profiteroles à la Crème de Vanille with Warm Chocolate Sauce.

The best courtyard contemporary cuisine: Et Al.

Joining the new restaurants in Sydney not too long ago, Et Al. emerged as the must-visit casual eatery that delights friends and families with simplistic yet satisfying fair. The contemporary surrounds are complemented by the classy menu, with the courtyard allowing visitors to soak up the alleyway atmosphere whilst sampling their range of organic and biodynamic wines.

The best budget-and-taste-bud-friendly spot: KL Kitchen

The cheerful surrounds of KL Kitchen go hand-and-hand with the lively Malaysian Chinese cuisine on offer in Lankelly Place. The traditional weekly specials accompany the comprehensive menu of classic dishes such as Beef Rendang and Deep-Fried Pork Belly, meaning that there are constantly new dishes to sample.

The best share plate and socialising spot: The Butler

The hot new kid on the block of Potts Point, The Butler, has attracted a steady stream of appreciation for its approach to share food and innovative cocktails. The eclectic, exotic decor exudes confidence which shines through the established menu of Ibero-American cuisine. This is one of our favourite spots to sit back with a Toasted Coconut, share a couple of gourmet plates and take in the panoramic views of the Sydney skyline.
