Restaurants

Bistrot 916

Restaurant

Chef Dan Pepperell and his dream have brought a new wave of French dining to Potts Point. On the menu, it's saucisson, escargot pasta and steak frites. Plus, there's a drinks list by the Swillhouse Group's former sommelier.

The Apollo

Restaurant

Tasty Greek share plates.

Fratelli Paradiso

Restaurant

Definitive modern-Italian in Potts Point. Visit for ground-breaking wines, a Sydney-famous lasagnetta Bolognese and impeccable service. Frat Paz nails it every time.

Parlar

Restaurant

Sumptuous takes on north-eastern Spanish flavours are at the heart of this warm and intimate fine-diner. The tapas-inspired menu features Australian produce prepared with a Catalonian twist, with plenty of seafood cooked over a charcoal Josper grill.

Sonora

Restaurant

You won't find any sugar skulls or sombreros here. This eatery and mezcal bar is inspired by the coastal state of the same name and the executive chef's heritage, flour tortillas are preferred – and they're used to make Wagyu burritos.

Casa Merida

Restaurant

Visit for mezcal imported from Indigenous communities in Mexico and dishes from the Yucatan Peninsula – including cricket-laced guacamole, potato gratin with guajillo chillies, and octopus tacos.

Cafes

Glider

Cafe

Great coffee and a Thai-influenced menu.

Room 10

Cafe

Don’t be fooled by this cafe’s modest appearance – it can do plenty in its tiny kitchen.

Small's Deli

Cafe

This petite, takeaway-focused sandwich shop offers no-nonsense sangas, strong coffees and a few bits and bobs for the pantry. And that’s about it. In the morning, the croque-monsieur (filled with a gooey cheese-medley and double-smoked ham) is your go. Later on, every sandwich on the lunch menu is a crowdpleaser. There’s also a good range of salads, sweets and pastries.

Primary Coffee Roasters

Cafe

This is more showroom than cafe, with coffee from one of Sydney's most experienced baristas.

Orwells

Cafe

A menu that doesn’t sacrifice flavour to achieve its nourishing tag, and a drinks list that’s all about fermentation.

Joseph Hyde

Cafe

You’ll smell the carrot cake waffles before you even walk in the door.

Bars

The Roosevelt

Bar

The Eau De Vie team's second great bar has a Prohibition theme, and a far more substantial food menu that most.

Kings Cross Distillery

Bar

Inside a former adult bookstore, this female-led distillery serves local and international spirits, as well as its own gin, whisky and vodka that you can store in your own personal “spirit locker” between visits. To eat, think Mediterranean snacks and share plates.
