None of the hype of restaurants in the nearby restaurant precinct but a better quality and more enjoyable.

There's a number of components to a great dining experience and Restaurant 16 had them all - relaxed ambience, attentive service, BYO wine/champagne well handled, good menu with many specials, nicely paced delivery and very, very good, clean, fresh simple food. Luscious !

One of Sydney's best for Italian but unfortunately, location restricts wider interest - a neighbour gem favoured by locals but it is not in the main restaurant strip near Young Street. Excellent entrees and mains, excellent quality produce, but this is one of the few...More

For a long time I had always wanted to dine at Restaurant 16. Promotion seemed very low key but there always seemed a high level of occupancy. The locals know it well! The occasion came up this week and we selected the 7 course tasting...More
