Restaurants

Sean’s Panorama

Restaurant

This “rickety-chic” institution has been winning over Sydneysiders with its ever-changing seasonal menu since 1993. It’s packed with ultra-fresh produce from the restaurant’s own farm in the Blue Mountains – check the restaurant chalkboard details. Cheerfully charming and dangerously good.

Peppe's

Restaurant

This vegan wine-and-pasta bar has delicious plant-based pasta dishes and a great range of natural vino (not to mention garlic bread that's worth crossing town for). It all comes at a very attractive price-point, too.

Totti's

Restaurant

Italian food and good times galore in a greenery-filled courtyard behind a dive-y ’70s pub.

A Tavola Bondi

The pasta here is handmade every day on the communal marble table that faces out onto Bondi Beach. Visit for laidback coastal Italian dining, an all-Italian wine list and a friendly atmosphere.
