We stopped in, not knowing what to expect. What a surprise! We were pointed to, and HIGHLY recommend, one of their sampling menus. Ours was a 10 course feast of small-dish sharable Lebanese dishes, all delicious. Some amazing. Wow! Very eclectic interior, fun people, and some interesting wines. Yes, we loved it and have already tried to duplicate one of... More

I have to tell you about this warm and charmimg place. It's in a busy corner of Oxford St. , We arrived to this Lebanese Restaurant with no expectations. But we found this to be a nice and beautiful experience in Embers Mezze Bar. Even the drinks we ordered: Ahwe, a combination tequila, kalua, lebanese coffee and other ingredientes; or... More

This place is a real find & for lovers of sharing a real gem. Dined with a friend recently & decided to explore their small plates despite the appeal of several of the larger ones. Positioned as Lebanese this is not traditional Lebanese but rather a modern take using the wonderful ingredients & flavours associated with Lebanese cuisine, and led... More

The food was amazing and very well priced. The grilled pawns were sensational and the duck "special" with cherries, cauliflower purée & grilled asparagus stunning!!!!!

An excellent restaurant with attentive but not intrusive service. We were made comfortable, welcome and special from the start. The food is amazing. Not standard Lebanese cuisine but an eclectic fusion of mediterranean and middle eastern. The Beqqa Valley wine was so amazing that we had way too much. Highly recommended for something different and exciting

I've been here a few times now, and I'm always left wanting more. The ambience is great, the staff are really friendly and the food is delicious Highly recommend coming here with a small group of friends so that you can taste everything! Love the cauliflower salad and beef cheeks

The place is nicely styled, service is casual but very good, but the food is the main star. We had a few different dishes to share and can't pick one out as they were all outstanding. Not sure why the place was so quiet on a Friday evening at 8:00pm.

We went for a special occasion and my partner was recommended this place in the Eastern Suburbs. We arrived earlier than our booked time and the waitress was not troubled. As it was our first time the waitress suggested the tasting menu for $55 pp. After looking at the menu we decided to order the meals we liked the sound... More

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
