Same owner since the 60's. The menu has not changed since I first eat there in 1990. Great value Italian , pizza and the best value Hamburger and Steak Sandwich east of King Cross.

My wife told me that the food was terrible and sadly I found out myself when we visited with relatives. 8 different orders, two were wrong and one was forgotten and the food was so bad it was on the verge of not edible. I didn't know it was actually possible to make a bad pizza but they did it.... More

Yesterday evening when we entered the restaurant water was dripping heavily from the roof in varoius areas. Staff acted as if nothing was happening. It should have been closed to the public for health and safety reasons.

While it's a little expensive and only accepts cash I cannot fault Grandfathers. I have been coming here for close to 25 years and it's always good with the freshest ingredients. Pasta is good - especially those with a tomato cream sauce as is the pizza. Marinara pasta and pizza are probably the best although the burgers are pretty good.... More

Hubby tells me we are going to a little cafe he has frequented over the years in rose bay. This little restaurant is such a surprise. It's not what I would call a cafe. Is an Italian pizza and pasta joint. It did have nice desserts in the fridge too. It's been around for 57yrs. Original owner. If that was... More

My wife and I live on the Northern Beaches of Sydney but choose to drive all the way to Rose Bay for pizza! My wife first went there in the early 70s! While the restaurant is very plain and definitely no frills, the pizzas are special. Definitely our favourite pizza place. They serve other dishes too but not why we... More

I have been going to this cafe for 40 years. It hasn't changed, which is wonderful. It is cozy and traditional - lots of polished wood, warm lighting, about 12 tables - two can seat 8 people. The owner is nearly always there. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food is yummy and of the home-cooked style. They serve... More

One of Sydney's hidden gems. Fresh & flavorsome pizza & pasta with a warm feeling throughout. Do note that they only take cash, no need to worry if you forget with many banks atms within a 2 minute stroll from the restaurant.

Me & my family eat here regularly & have done for over 40 yrs. The pizzas are great & always loaded with fresh ingredients. The service is friendly, efficient & knowledgeable. Rose Bay wouldn't be the same without Grandfather's moustache.
