I crash into the diners eating on the side walk every day. Most annoying. Why can't they sit in closer the restaurant.

The breakfast I had here was outstanding. The poached eggs were cooked perfectly, as was the very large side of asparagus. The sourdough toast was just the right thickness and not hard. The service was very prompt and pleasant. Highly recommend.

Great spot for after work, drink and a little meal. I'd recommend it heartily. It can get a bit noisy but you do feel you are in Europe with attentive staff, good vibe and an interesting buzzy classy restaurant.

This review is for the original Bambini Wine Room in Elizabeth Street in the CBD. Beautiful space, extensive drinks menu, and nibbles well worth the expense. This is a fantastic, sophisticated venue that benefits from being a little off the beaten track, so doesn't tend...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
