The Winery




The Winery
285A Crown Street, Surry Hills Sydney

Saturday night and contemplating where to venture to? You must give The Winery a go!

Amongst the swarms of people queuing just to get a seat at this two story immaculate venue is one of the best places at the moment in Sydney.

Not only is the food fantastic, the staff are friendly and the atmosphere is glowing. Candles lit throughout the venue, the lights are dimmed and the people are happy and excited to be there.

If you are after a romantic night here, I would choose a week night.
If you are after a great place with friends, any night is the right night.

This is my kind of place, a huge wine variety, lovely cocktails and finger-licking good food.

The highlight is the Coffin Bay oysters at  3.8 each with vinegar & shallot pearls. The oysters are full of creamy goodness. The vinegar & shallot pearl are out of this world!! Yes they slightly explode in your mouth (just like caviar) but don’t let this put you off. The combination is heavenly and goes down a treat with a sip of white wine or champagne of your choice. 

Sweet pea, mint & feta salad, young shoots, honey – yum. What a fresh dish, when you are out not many people want something heavy as it can cause bloating and tiredness. Everything in this dish is fresh – the sweet pea, mint & feta are lifted to an even lighter level with the drizzle of honey dressing.

Cheese board with 3 cheeses, lavosh, homemade quince jam. Generous portions of each cheese, and the quality is particularly noticeable. Try any cheese with the roasted walnuts on the board- the textures melt in your mouth.

For those who are a little more on the regular side try the chorizo & veal sausage roll, home made chilli jam. Although yes this is a sausage role, it is executed very well and tastes great.

These are just a few of the many tapas available on the menu. The winery also have main meals for those who are on an empty stomach.

The ONLY downfall was the fact I wanted more oysters and they were all out – come on guys stock up on oysters, especially on a Saturday night!

  1. Hey i really like your blog,
    me and my girlfriend were thinking about starting up something similar..
    I've noticed you're reviews are primarily seafood based (that's fine). You should check out Nick's Bar and Grill... i think you'd enjoy that place, has some nice cocktails too.

    You should make a top 10 cocktail places list :P i'd be interested to hear what you recommend cause i know little about the right places to go.

    1. Hi Marcus thanks for your feedback, I do love my seafood and in Sydney we are blessed to have access to such fresh seafood :)

      I will try Nick's and give you my feedback.

      To be honest I am not a HUGE cocktail fan, one here and there is fine but I love my wine!!
