The Apollo - 44 Macleay St, Potts Point

* A Stay Local Partner *

(4 min walk)

This classy, contemporary Greek taverna will leave you hearts and stomachs full. Start with the taramasalata and pita bread, feast on the roast lamb ribs and traditional lemon potatoes, and finish with a dessert of your choice (read: order the loukoumades - Greek Doughnuts). The sharing plates and Mediterranean spirit makes this place perfect for groups, and the gorgeous marble bar also caters for the couples.  If you have a group of 8 or more - join the Chef at The Apollo and dine in the kitchen ... ask for the Chef's table and you'll be right in the middle of the action.

Bistro Rex - 50 Macleay St, Potts Point

Bistro Rex is a sophisticated take on a Parisian Bistro in the heart of Potts Point. This French dining room balances a casual vibe with its impressive interiors, set in the former Commonwealth Bank building. The restaurant uses native Australian produce and ingredients to serve mouthwatering classic French dishes, chicken liver parfait and onion soup. It’s hard to go past their steak frites - although it is drowning in butter (as it should be!). If you wake up feeling a little guilty, check out some of Sydney’s most beautiful coastal walks

Fratelli Paradiso - 12-16 Challis Ave, Potts Point

This neighbourhood favourite is a sophisticated Italian trattoria worthy of your tastebuds and wallet. Open from breakfast to dinner and drinks late at night, no matter what time you dine here the food is damn good. Choose from any of the dozen or so classics scribbled in italian on the blackboard, and pair it with a glass from their curated italian wine list and it’s hard to go wrong. There’s a good reason why Fratelli Paradiso is a Sydney institution.

Yellow - 57 Macleay St, Potts Point

Hip, healthy and vegetarian, Yellow partners with local suppliers to bring you delicious plates made from the freshest produce.

The plant-based menu is complemented by an eclectic mix of wines, that includes a range of biodynamic and organic wines. This is one of the finest vegetarian experiences you’ll have, and we encourage even the carnivores among us to give it a go.

There’s so many more great eating spaces and drinks places in the area, but that’s our short list of fine dining experiences.  If we’ve got you hungry and you’re killing a bit of time before dinner, take the time to check out some of Potts Point’s specialty food shops for a snack, or start planning a night out to remember (and forget) at Sydney’s best hidden bars.
