Meet the Chef

Richard joined Otto in 2003, having worked with some of Europe’s great chefs in Berlin, Switzerland and his native Prague. He worked as James Kidman’s sous chef for five years, assuming the role of head chef in late 2009. His food style is unashamedly simple - modern Italian with roots firmly placed in the classics. For many it has come for many to signify the quintessential Sydney cuisine; fresh, seasonal, produce-driven, sourcing the finest ingredients and letting them speak for themselves.

    The crumbed chicken had been well fried but left the chicken itself completely dry. Was excited to go for the new dish but very disappointed. Everything else was great as usual.

    Otto is a fabulous dining experience. The welcome and service was amazing and the food was to die for. We had the yellow fin tuna, scallops and kingfish for entree. Each was presented beautiful and equally as tasty. The pork, beef and barramundi for mains were also fabulous and the dessert delicious. Thank you for an amazing night!

    Mostly great food. My husband had the fish which was disappointing. For $50plus,they could do mor than a piece of fish all alone on a plate. Very plain

    I love that they had a vegan menu and it was very tasty and well thought out. It's rare to have vegan fine dining so I was very happy that they offered that menu. Service was friendly and efficient and we had a great night.
