Macleay Street Bistro

Potts Point

A traditional french bistro! We had the classic from French Onion Souffle to start (delicious) tot he steak frites..I dod ask for some Bernaise sauce too which they happily served! And of course a chocolate fondant to finish (melt in the mouth). A good nigh out with friends in chilled bistro. Worth a visit.

This restaurant in Llankelly Place is true neighbourhood gem. The food has a real touch of magic with say the Goats Cheese, Peas & Mint Arancini's for a starter then to the fantastic Duck with beetroot risotto. Nice wine selection too! A greta night out in a laneway that just has pleasant buzz!

The seafood bouillabaisse was a stand out dish tonight. Great flavours! The salted caramel Panna Cotta with Dark chocolate and almond Tuileries was a superb finish. Delightful.

One of the best food offerings in the neighbourhood. The Lamb Cigar and sumac entree is a great starter. Nice wine list too!

A good night at 4.14. The colcannon cannot be missed. Good wine list and service. We always like to sit at the kitchen bar/bench. Watch all the action. Good night out

Lovely truly Italian menu. The gnocchi is a delight and the pizza (melted pecorino) was delicious

Macleay Street Bistro

Great night out. Dinner for four of us was a sheer delight. The food (we shared the Chateaubriand) was just cooked to perfection. Our friends really enjoyed the Barramundi with a salad and raspberry vinaigrette.

A funky fit out, old english colonial meets modern indian. Great take on some of the dishes, Curry Bombs are a must.

Had to try the lamb ribs with a smoky eggplant, stick fingers but oh so worth it! A delightful neighbourhood gem.

A hidden gem in Llankelly Place. Cant decide if the spanner crab salad or the lamb rack with fermented garlic, pomegranate and yoghurt is the best! Really friendly and knowledgable staff about the food and the wines. Have to mention .. I love the Pigs blood parfait, crispy pork skin, apple syrup ... sounds really adventurous but respects the dish beautifully (I mean pork and apple together is always good)...the parfait is like a great pate! Enjoyed very much

The location and ambience is nice. Our waitress was lovely and helpful. The meal was OK but I think expensive for what you get when you spend $100 per head and thats with 4 people sharing one bottle of wine..
