Quality of food was awesome, service a tad slow however because the food was good it didn't matter. Fresh produce. Next to Hotel 57, easy and accessible. Does deliver to hotel 57 guests if need at certain times of the day. Good price.

This was our first time dining at Foveaux since it re-opened and we were very pleased with the experience. The restaurant is verging on industrial chic, with low lighting, exposed brick walls, and very nice chairs. The menu was creative and full of interesting options. To start I chose the Pigs Head Terrine with Toffee Apple, which was full of... More

There are plenty of booths in this bar which would normally be a plus, but OMG the seats are super uncomfortable - like sitting on a concrete slab. Even though the service was friendly and the drinks were fine, my uncushioned butt was telling me to get the hell out of there after one drink! The chairs at the individual... More

The food is clever, subtle and very well crafted. There is a very skilled chef Paul in the kitchen and his team compliment with casual professionalism. We were treated to a delightful dinner, by two of our favourite people my son and his lovely partner. Ok the company was good, the place is/was fashionably industrial chic, the service was very...

We went for the first time last night for dinner. We arrived at approx 8.15pm to be greeted by two lovely waiters and seated at a table just near the kitchen which has glass walls for viewing. Ultimately, Chef Paul Gordon has created a fabulous space with an amazing menu that isn't just the usual run of the mill. We... More

We took gourmet friends from Melbourne here in January and we were all delighted with the experience. Loved the limited menu - as in France they don't do too much but all our meals were very inspired and delicious. Service was exceptional and loved the decor though the music was a bit loud. We can't wait to go back, but... More

Unfortunately, Foveaux Restaurant was closed for some time. However, it has reopened better than ever. The Wine and Cheese Bar downstairs but we were here to see if Foveaux Restaurant had not lost any of its inventiveness and great combination of flavours. We decided to get the "More From The Table" selection - an eclectic serving of snacks, entrees, mains... More

For starter I had the tuna which was lovely and fresh, husband had the terrine which had mini toffee apple which was amazing. This was followed by the lamb for me which... More

I don't know if this place has any hats but it deserves 2. Exciting adventurous food on a small menu that means that they are focused on their specialty dishes. A chicken and bug entrée was amazing followed by a drop dead lamb dish and then a twist on creme caramel to die for. Service is amazing and the sommelier... More

This an excellent venue for a gourmet night out. Dishes are creative, atmosphere intimate and the service was very good. The wine list is limited but good enough and they're BYO except for Friday & Saturday.

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
