    Great lunch time spot, delicious food but can get a bit loud so it’s difficult to hear. A little bit expensive but quality ingredients. Great wine list too.

    We went there on a Friday night, it was quiet in a very nice sense, the perfect setting for our romantic night. Super fresh food, well cooked, warm and balanced service, not rushed. Don't miss out on this fine dining venue!

    Usually its a pretty safe place to get quality food without the eye watering prices of some other CBD establishments. But my lamb shank was virtually raw and very small.

    The service at Republic Dining must be the best in Sydney. Also the best steak I have ever eaten.

About the restaurant

CBD gastro pub dining at its best

Located on Level one of the historic Republic Hotel is Republic Dining... Enjoying panoramic views over Pitt and Bridge Streets, the dining room is an oasis from the wheeling and dealing of the CBD during the day and an intimate space by night.

The venue boasts a bright and airy room with a classic bistro feel, it’s the perfect place in which to enjoy amiable table service and a glass or two from the extensive wine selection.

Republic Dining has always been famous for their fresh oysters and in-house cold smoked salmon, and now, after the recent renovations, Chef Lee Thompson has access to a Montague Broiler, directly imported from the USA, which is producing premium steaks, lamb and pork. (**Inside Tip: Ask your waiter if the off the menu Rib-eye is available**).

And don't worry chef hasn’t forgotten those who are in the mood for lighter fare, with seasonal fish and house made gnocchi amongst other dishes.

Best Dish: Renowned for their steaks, these are a must when visiting Republic Dining.
