We like this place very much and the food is really great! The only problem is the service goes off after a little while and you find yourself waiting for the original person who looked after you to come back and see if there is...anything else you might like. Or in fact, anyone. We tried to praise the food so much but there wasn’t a lot of interest in what we thought or said. Would like to go back, but the service would have to be better.More

Thankyou for taking the time to leave your review; we will definitely be reviewing our sequence of service and making sure that our staff are maintaining the attentive standard that we aspire to every day. Hopefully we can see you again soon, and keep our...More
We had a nice night- great company, ambience and service but the food was really disappointing and the bill made me fall over . The waitress kept suggesting we would need double of everything we ordered because the dishes were small so we went with...it . By the end of the night we had an absolutely ridiculous bill. There is no way I would eat there again because it just wasn’t worth it.More

Hi Sharon, Thankyou for your feedback. We pride ourselves on sourcing the best quality ingredients we can find, and our chefs work long and hard to prepare them in a mindful and inventive way. The prices we charge, and the coinciding portions, are the result...More
We all know local restaurants are struggling to survive at the minute so decided to go local rather than into the city and so glad we did! The five course degustation menu was beautiful, my favourites were the spanner crab salad and octopus but hey,...they were all delicious. I think the menu changes monthly so we’ll be back next month for sure. Matching wines are available but we chose a French Chablis, premier cru, not cheap but a fabulous wine and overall the meal was value for money. Important we don’t devalue the excellent food and service provided by suburb restaurants just because of location. This is an awesome restaurant, delivering delicious food and personal servIce. Well done Annata!More
A delightful 4 course meal for our group - tuna tartare, spätzle, pork neck and a light and appetising cheesecake. The mushroom arancini as appetiser was well crafted and to finish off we also had complementary puffed rice nougat.
Impeccable service, al fresco dining meant...we had the area to ourselves.
A nice little find in Crows Nest which has no shortage of dining experiences.
Happy to recommend & re visit!More
Its hard for us to leave Crows Nest - there are so many good restaurants. This is as good as any of them. The flounder I had was probably the best fish I have ever had. The waiter knew his wine...and the salad with the...fish was superb....This is a restaurant we really want to return to. If it is as good the second time - then it will get a five star!More
Really enjoyed the 4 course set menu here with a group of friends. Staff were knowledgeable and took care to discuss options and accommodate any requirements. Wine was also good and explained well but expensive. A great experience.
Keen to support Anaya post-COVID restrictions as our last dinner there was excellent. Great 5 course set menu tonight and the staff were uber-professional. Sommelier very helpful. Menu nicely paced and, despite a 1hr 45min dining window, we did not feel rushed. Great work Annata...and see you again next time!More
I've had the great pleasure of dining at Annata on a number of occasions. I managed to get in last night for their degustation, which was absolutely lovely. Annata's menu changes regularly, which is fantastic as iIt gives me a great reason to go back...time and time again.
The great food is suitably complemented by a very good cocktail and wine list. The bar staff do their utmost to find a wine to suit your palate. The cocktails are not surprisingly some of the best to be found in Sydney. At the moment they have a feijoa based cocktail which I thought was absolutely sublime.
The staff at Annata are genuinely friendly and know their stuff.
