We had a lovely evening with friends, the atmosphere, food, service etc. were all great. The brussel sprouts and roasted cauliflower are a must have!

Love the clear labelling for various dietary needs! All is missing is a vegan dessert option! :)

It was a wonderful evening and we sat by the window which was a perfect spot. The only feedback I'd like to give for consideration was that the music was a little loud and it was hard to have a conversation.

Service was excellent, menu interesting and varied, food delicious. Very flexible and attentive from kitchen to floor staff. Cocktails look amazing. I'll have to go back to try a couple when i'm not driving.

About The Cottage Bar & Kitchen

The weather is warming up and The Cottage Bar & Kitchen in Balmain has launched its new spring menu just in time – designed by head chef Ellen Young it’s perfect for sharing with friends and family on long hot sunny days. The venue is a wine bar that feels like grandma’s farmhouse, with a mismatch of kitsch and vintage furniture and a newly opened courtyard for alfresco dining. The menu is inspired by ‘share-style’ food and pizza’s cooked in the huge pizza oven – one of the centre pieces of the venue. The extensive wine list is comprehensive yet approachable with some quirky twists, along with the top notch cocktails and craft beers on offer. Working with renowned designers Luchetti Krelle (of Momofuku Seiobo, Hinky Dinks and Sake fame) the owners Rob & Osman put together the concept for the venue, creating a warm and friendly space which compliments Balmain’s rustic heritage. The Cottage brings to the area a charming venue which food and wine lovers will relish and locals will want to make their regular hangout.
