This is the ultimate guide to the best restaurants in Sydney’s Potts Point.
Luckily for us these guys are our neighbours! This interior design winning restaurant is fresh, flavoursome and incredibly fast paced. Pillowy bao buns and Yuzi Spritz come to our minds first. Their menu offers a wide range of Japanese cuisine’s. It is hard to choose just one (trust us!) so we recommend getting a few to share around. You are going to want a piece of everything, literally!
If it’s a table for one, sit up along their concrete bar and nibble away from their Izakaya menu
A true example for minimal and simplicity working so well to achieve something so great. These guys are no competition for the dumpling game. Their 14 item menu consists of authentic flavored pork buns and dumplings.
Did we mention it’s BYO? Grab a bottle on booze from around the corner, and voila! You are set for the night!
Their coy nook does have minimal seating, so we recommend booking.
undoubtedly one of the best restaurants in Potts Point.
This place is buzzing from breakfast, brunch till dinner. Their alfresco dining is just as good for an early morning espresso as it is a late evening Aperol.
You will find dishes off mouth-watering ragu and lasagnetta taking you back too fonder memories channelling the Amalfi coast – almost!
If that does not win you over their continuously changing extensive wine list surely will. They have hand selected the best of the best with something for everyone. Pleasant pinot’s and Italian orange wines for the win.
Oh and it would be a crime to pass up a slice of their tiramisu for desert!
Be prepared to be planted a kiss on arrival. Enter as a stranger, leave as a friend.
Located just off Orwell Street this hidden away alley consists of some of Potts Point’s most fabulous casual dining establishments. Fitted with a bright light instalment that pays tribute to the neon’s that once flanked the red-light district of Darlinghurst Road. Some Locay favorites include.
Wok and Noodle Bar or as we call it, the best ‘hole in the wall’ – a great spot for some ramen! Whilst it may not look like much from outside, the hot bowls of delicious Japanese Soups and/or curries are hard to beat with prices from as little as $10!
Dear Sainte Eloise
A quirky wine bar with phenomenal knowledge. With a selection that is hard to beat, they certainly know all about pairing the perfect drop with your next bite and offer a cute, intimate atmosphere to take it all in.
Sometimes simple is what works best.
And in this case, it absolutely does. Great Coffee, classic salads, breakfasts, and sandwiches. If you are looking for a good lunch fix with quality produce look no further. Be prepared to wait, this is arguably THE most popular place for morning breakfast and lunch in our neighbourhood of Potts Point. We can absolutely vouch for it being worth it though.
A Jensen Favorite, for centuries.
One of the most immersive charms about Potts Point is it’s never ending history behind every corner store, apartment building and at the end of every pedestrian crossing.
The Roosevelt first opened 1943 near the end of World War 2, and was a go-to for American Soldiers’ taking their Australian girlfriends out for a good night. In 1947, Abe Saffron – who people referred to as the “King of the Cross” brought the establishment with a strong mind set for bringing the glitz and glamour he found in Vegas, to Sydney.
Frank Sinatra and Sammy David Jnr were once frequent visitors behind these doors, and its fit out surely lives up to that expectation. With traditional cocktails, red velvets, crystal glassware and dim lighting – slip back to a time where dames drank martinis and men boasted loudly about the number of whiskies they had over lunch.
With new bars and eateries popping up around town there has never been a better time to eat and drink your way though Potts Point. Weather you are on the hunt for a late-night feast or a primo morning brew Potts Point truly does have it all covered.
