Restaurants

Da Orazio

Restaurant

At this pretty corner spot just back from the beach, one of the city’s best chefs is serving perfectly puffy pizzas and a Sydney-famous porchetta roll. Plus pastas, carafes of wine and tiramisu.

Carbon Mexican Wood Fire

Restaurant

This spot offers a hint of the flavours you might find on Mexico's Caribbean coast. It's all about boutique tequila and DIY tacos: you select all of the fillings you want and assemble the taco yourself. It's so simple – but so fun and practical. We wish it was more commonplace around town.
