Impressive entrance though Victorian courtyard. Beware cobbles if you've had a glass or two! Outdoor seating in courtyard, but indoors, the place is a vast seating area with a strange mix of furniture. Rattan, modern, 1970s and 'out of the box' feeling. Service is slow,...More

Great place for an afternoon beverage after a hard day of shopping or sightseeing. Charming with reasonable prices. Bar staff not the friendliest I have met but that can be over looked with the location.

We came on a Monday night, decent crowd. Had a calamari entree & burgers for main - both were awesome. We sat outside...It's pretty in the day, but gorgeous at nighttime. Good value & overall definitely recommend.

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
