Fortunately for me I live just around the corner from this uber-cool wine bar. Whether it's a catch up Friday or Saturday lunch with a girlfriend (the only days they are open for lunch) or meeting up for a drink after work, 10 William delivers. Professional staff, an eclectically curated wine list and a seasonal menu with hints of Europe... More

The great thing about this restaurant is that when it's open there is continuous service. We had lunch at 3.30pm on Saturday (it is only open for lunch Friday and Saturday and is closed Sunday - who can blame them with penalty wage rates in Australia) and the kitchen closes at 11.00pm - unusual in Sydney. With a late lunch... More

Went here after a DISASTROUS meal at East London restaurant (in the London Hotel - avoid!). But as always, Ten William delivers. Amazing food, great wines, uber-professional staff ... the complete package. Just what Paddington needs and deserves. Congratulations - you have set the bar high (and your competitors like East London clearly cannot compete).

We read about the place on the Virgin Airline magazine and decided to give it a try. We were not at all disappointed. We tried a couple of glasses of Australian wine, and they gave us a taste to make sure our expectations were met. We ordered a plate of cheese with it, which was well presented. Next door was...

Had dinner here between xmas and new year's eve. The menu and wine list was interesting and delicious. We shared several dishes, the plates lend themselves to sharing. Service was great and I would love to visit again.

Full marks for 10 William Street. Easily punching above its weight on value. Food really good. Interesting menu of share type plates but also suits a traditional 'I want all my own' entree and main order. Good flavour and spice to spicy dishes. Very good wine list, especially international. Good selection by the glass. Not overpriced. Friendly and capable service,... More

Cosy little place, specialising in shared plates. Very tight downstairs so try and get a table upstairs. Gets very busy and no bookings. Very interesting array of European wines. They are very happy to let you try as many wines as you like before you buy. Almost all wines by the glass. Food was excellent and reasonably priced for the... More

The moment I put the whipped 'bottarga' pretzel into my mouth I was on cloud nine. I could feel umami playing melody on my palette. Then the unforgettable octopus fregola, smoky and flavorful. Just amazing. We also ordered the prawn chitarra and albacore. Loving them all! Will come back again for sure!

This is a great little bar with authentic Italian food. It's a bit on the pricey side however, but I would return. My companion was blown away - she loved it. I fancied something light so ordered the asparagus salad. It seemed to be missing the egg so definitely not worth the $17 or $18 it cost.

After finishing lunch in Paddington walked down William Street and found this amazing bar, we ordered a bottle of Italian red purely by the region alone and was not disappointed it was a very tasty drop. This is definitely a bar you will return to it is small and a little cramped but has lots of atmosphere.
