Made a reservation two days in advance but they lost our booking when we first arrived at the restaurant. Had to wait for 10 minutes for a table with my friends under the cold winter weather. Food was not hot and fresh enough. Felt like having left over from the day before. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I went here recently for my morning coffee as my usual cafe was closed for the christmas period. The lady behind the counter was unnecessarily rude and gave me a hard time because I came up to the counter to order my coffee - she was upset with me because it was table service and I was going against her...

A warm welcome and good coffee is what will await you. Service was so friendly and welcoming - I would want every cafe in Sydney to be at this level.

This is a really nice little unpretentious cafe/bar/restaurant with friendly and helpful staff, good coffee, and great cakes and biscuits to have with it. When we were there in an afternoon on a busy weekend they were happy to rearrange the tables to accommodate our group, and happy for us to stay as long as we wanted. I don't know... More

My wife and I went here before seeing a play. What a rip off. $21 for a lasagne the size of tea cup, a tiny salad and stale bread. My wife ordered a salad with prawns and we were charged $28, about $8 more than the advertised price. Never again.

Great food, lovely (and cute!) staff. Love the location too, but its so so busy. Thats the biggest drwback, sometimes you just want a quiet place to eat and chill ot. If thats you, this isnt the place. But if your mood is upbeat and noisy, this'll do very nicely thank you! Recommended.

It was a Friday night, it was pouring rain and this cafe was full. The staff went out of their way to find us a spot and to make sure that we were comfortable (and we saw them do this for other people too). There were various food options and some gluten free cakes as well so we were happy.... More

Located in the arts precinct of Sydney and just around the corner from The Rocks, Larrikins Cafe offers all day breakfasts, scrumptious paninis and floaters (pies), good coffee and iced chocolates. This comfortable cafe was very pleasant with lounge and table seating with magazines provided and efficient service. It was an excellent alternative to other restaurants in the area since... More
