    Margaritas are nice and tasty. Guacamole is delicious. Food was reasonable. Staff were a little busy and found it hard to get to us. Staff were pleasant.

    Food was only OK. Service was a bit disappointing. The place is so nice... We will be back to give it another go, but not overly optimistic.

    The food is alright but unfortunately I can’t say the same about the service. They recommended too much food, the wine recommendation didn’t match what we asked for and we had to wait a long time to get our drinks and main when the place was not so busy.

    Really great food and service was exceptional! One of the best margaritas around Sydney. I've been here 3 times and never disappointed. Definetly worth booking ahead if you do so you don't have to wait to be seated esp on a Friday evening!

    I was so excited to go. I’d been meaning to go for ages. We arrived, were seated and got menus - so good so far. Ordered. Received half the food we ordered before cocktails and then the food came out so so quick. Like all five items, way sooner than is reasonable. before we could finish them all. There were mosquitos around the table and it was so cold. I won’t be returning. So disappointing. Service was pretty good. Not great but not terrible.

    The restaurant is positioned beautifully in Circular Quay with views of the Harbour Bridge. We unfortunately had to follow up on our food a number of times as there was about 30 mins between getting the first two items and the remaining items coming out. Guests who arrived and ordered after us had their food brought out and had left before we had received all of our food.

    A great spot to meet friends for a drink and food to share. Great small plates easy to share among everyone at the table. The fish tacos are delicious. Def must try the Tommy's margarita - so good! And save room for dessert - churros in warm chocolate sauce - need I say more!?

    Excellent service as always at Bar Patron. The food was awesome, especially the zucchini quesadillas. The kale enfrijolades were not great...a air-to-air

    This restaurant has improved since it first opened. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food and atmosphere make for an enjoyable evening. The half price drinks and nibbles prior to 6pm are a great bonus

    Great spot and nice cocktails and wine. The food was over priced and the service was super slow even though we had booked a table it wasn’t ready and we were kept waiting for ages.

    The food was absolutely delicious. We had a greater waiter who helped us out through the night. Incredibly filling food! Al Pastor tacos are a must eat.

    Service was a bit disappointing, our waiter disappeared and even though we wanted to order more we ended up just getting the bill. Wasn’t even full that night. They make amazing margaritas though!

    For a weeknight they were not overly busy but only had 3 wait staff and a bartender so service was a little slow at times. The food was amazing and highly recommended. We also had a flight of tequilas and a number or margaritas.

    This place is a little gem. The service was excellent, the quality of the food and it's serving was spot on, and the espresso martinis very very good.

About the restaurant

When one of this country’s greatest chefs teams up with one of the world’s finest brands of tequila, a fiesta is brewing. Bar Patron by Rockpool, in Sydney, offers a high-end take on traditional Mexican food.

All your favourites are here - with a sophisticated twist. Enjoy that street food staple, the taco, filled with fried market fish or grilled beef tongue. Maybe a tostada with chicken and beans is more your style? You can order anything from a snack right up to a large share plate, along with an artisanal, tequila-based cocktail on the side. Leave a little room for sweets like polvorones, a Mexican almond shortbread.

Useful tidbit: Happy Hour is from 4-6pm.
