Have been here several times, mainly for the location. There is a wide variety of pancakes, however if you don't have a sweet tooth, the other food available is rather average

Fabulous pancakes. I eat there every trip to Sydney. It is in amongst some very nice stores, so I kill two birds with one stone.

Used to love this place but lately the service hasn't been good. It's as if you are doing them a favour by just being there. Do like the pancakes but due to the service hasn't been a good experience.

If you are not a big eater, then you should ask your friend to come with. Since its portion is a big one, so you could eat one portion for two :) Overall, the food is great :)

We arrive around 8:00 pm to a busy place. The staff was generally nice except a couple with a really angry attitude. Our server was very sweet. They got out coffee and food orders wrong but fixed it promptly. The pancakes and crepes were wicked , deliciously wicked. Prices were reasonable so is the service.

Admittedly, we didn't have pancakes here (though saw everyone else's and they looked VERY thick). Had a voucher for buy one meal, get one free, so opted for the most expensive meal (around $28) which was steak. It was cooked well, and was served with yummy potato things and a massive, fresh salad. Bottles of wine were cheap, especially considering... More

We heard about this place through word of mouth and decided to check out the pancakes. The location of the one we went to was fitting (The Rocks, Sydney), i only realised that they are a chain after I went there. The service was great, staff were really attentive and friendly. My wife and I decided to get opposite, I... More

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
