We were tired from a day of touring and all we wanted was a simple meal at our hotel of a burger and a beer. This restaurant had many higher cuts of meats available, but they were very accommodating and split our burger and salad, which made it just the right amount for a small meal. The decor is dark woods in a pub styre.

As the name suggests this place is about meat and yes the wine list is extensive. We booked for 6pm and it was a good thing we did as by 6:15 the place was full. Our waiter advised that it doesn’t matter what day of the week the place is full.

The food - as mentioned the theme is meat and if its ribs or a slab of beef you are craving then this is the place to be. They do other stuff as well like lamb, chicken and seafood. But it is the selection of beef that catches the eye. The other thing that catches the eye is the knife, any North American bushman would be happy to have this hanging off his belt, not quite up there with Crocodile Dundee but you get the picture.

I had the rib eye, medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. A good range of sauces, if you like a bit of spice I recommend the African hot Chilli. Also included a side of fresh green beans with roasted hazelnuts and caramelised onions. The beans were great, still with a bit of crunch and the nust and onions just added that something special.

The wine list is extensive and caters for all tastes and wallets, with prices ranging from about $45 to $990 per bottle.

The ambiance is relaxing with a sort of South African feel, the service is good and the staff were both friendly and helpful.

We stayed in the InterCon during a recent visit to Sydney and by chance popped into the Meat & Wine Co based in the ground floor of the hotel. We were greeted by really friendly staff who presented us with a comprehensive wine list. We opted for a few glasses of wine in the afternoon on our first day which were superb and very reasonably priced. We popped back in on our second day having had a bad food experience in The Rocks area of the Harbour. We ordered some wine and a few bar snacks (Salt and Pepper Squid and Ribs) both of which were amazing. The Welsh bar man was really great company and added to our enjoyable experience. Overall - a trip to The Meat & Wine Co is highly recommended for its great food, wine and service.

As someone who likes their food just as it sounds on the menu I thoroughly enjoyed their great steaks, especially as they were unadulterated with lots of spices. And, I like a well-done steak and this was prepared with no fuss and too perfection. Loved the blue cheese sauce. Ate the same meal on two different nights during our stay at the Intercontinental. Why go elsewhere with food this good.

If you want a 5 star service and good food to match the the meat and wine co at the Intercontinental Sydney is the place to go.

A very good selection of steaks which can range from low marble way up to premium cut.

The atmosphere is amazing and wasn't to crowded. Just the staff was always on hand to help out and there for any queries that I had.

Would for sure be recommending this to everyone that wants food quality steaks and service!
