Highly recommend this place. The food was fantastic. We walked for hours around Sydney harbour doing the tourist thing. We came across this establishment on our walk. The burgers were delicious. The service was very good. Great value for money.

It‘s a fun place full of history. The service is very good and the food (beef ribs for example) is excellent. Even the regular size is enough food for the price.

This is a cafeteria style place where you order your food at the counter and pay and take a number to your table. No reservations for groups less than ten. We expected to be ten and had a reservation but ended up being only eight....More

I had the lamb ribs with chips and my partner had the dinosaur ribs. The ribs were good but a bit fatty. No real surprises or complaints here just good Sydney food at a decent price. I enjoyed the the lamb ribs.

A bit of a wait to be served but once the order was taken the service was reasonably efficient. The burgers were delicious as were the chicken wraps and fries. Affordable and friendly.

We visited Ribs & Burgers for meal prior to our walk around Vivid. A great discovery! The food is not expensive, the service is excellent, and it is well-prepared (open kitchen) right before our eyes. We each had different burgers, which were hot and tasty....More

Loved the perfectly charred juicy beef burgers and sweet potato fries after a Saturday morning stroll at the markets. Milk shake was good but a slight overkill with all the food. Great seating and views from the restaurant as well both outdoors and indoors!

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

When we attended, they had beers for sale. I didn't see bottles of wine but they would have glasses as they sell a number of other beverages.

For the restaurant on the rocks. It is directly across the street from the Holiday Inn. It's on the point where you turn right from George Street to Macquarie street. The sign is small, but you'll see a slate gray outdoor... More

Ribs and Burgers is a restaurant in The Rocks, famous for its burger all over Australia. We offer a wide range of ribs & burgers which are made from slow cooked ribs for 8hrs until the meat gets cooked in its own juices for strong natural flavour. Alongside, we have tasty side chips, fresh salad, onion rings and sauces in the plate. A meal at Ribs & Burgers is like stepping back in time, to a restaurant started by your local butcher who decided to put their cooking advice into live practice. We support local farmers, sponsor community groups and help the less fortunate. Visit us today and experience a great tourism in Sydney.
