Ester is a busy restaurant with limited walk ups so book if what be sure of a seat. Great tapas style menu with dishes you won’t find elsewhere. Excellent service and wine list. I’m going back to try the rest of the menu!

We reserved this restaurant for our first night in Sydney based on the rave reviews and were satisfied, but not overly impressed. Everything was.....good. The food was innovative, but the flavors didn't pop. My wife enjoyed her first Orange wine. The staff was super friendly....More
