For the last night in Sydney we were looking for a nice place and a good meal and a kind waitress in our hotel suggested this place.The area is amazing, the restaurant nice and calm and the food overal good, despite quite elaborate: more close to french cousine than spanish, but quuge interesting!We asked for Sangria, that they slso not offer, and they propose their spritz that has nothing to do with a real Spritz!Overall, the experience was good sonwr reccoment it.Hola,Thank you kindly for taking the time to write this great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed dining with us and appreciate you sharing your experience. You are quite correct, our cuisine is not classically Spanish, however we do draw inspiration from all over the Mediterranean, hence the varied styles of cuisine on our menu.I was our pleasure to host you and we hope to see you again one day.With appreciation,Mercado Team

Lunched on back-to-back afternoons with business associates. Extensive menu complemented by specials (although they were the same both days, I think). I enjoyed the pasta both days, the ravioli one day and the papardelle the next. Really good wine selections. Very attentive staff. Across the street from Hyde Park, next to the Sheraton Hotel.

Anason - Turkish Restaurant

Reviewed By theol684

Have been here numerous times before but first time under new chef and with new menu. Not impressed. Some favourites have been retired (barramumdi) with new ones such as barbounia and snapper not up to scratch as they were way overcooked. The entrees have gone bland from their previous sharp tastes. Best on the night was the imported baklava and the coffee for which I will go again for - after having dinner elsewhere!

we had a combined room/dinner package. The atmosphere of the restaurant was small and cosy but the other people never felt intrusive. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much of a problem for them. Menu was interesting and well thought out in that the portions were such that you could share easily because of the way they were prepared. Also i felt the pricing very reasonable including the drinks.

Modern, elegant wine bar in the heart of Double Bay, with delicious food using the best local produce, exceptional wines and friendly service.

Reviewed By ArmaanHCMC

I was lucky enough to attend a third birthday dinner for Bibo Wine Bar this week. Not only do they have a highly original and unique selection of fabulous wines but these pair so effortlessly with their delicious food menu. Everything is a perfect match.Dinner was a selection of share plates starting with entree style smoked salmon pâté, the incredibly delicious scallop cru & finger lime, runner bean fitters, and the piri piri aubergine and the mouth watering Flambé chorizo. This was followed by the equally mouth watering main size Suckling Pig with Fennel, persimmon & pomegranate. We finished this with a quince & bergamot tart followed my mini Portuguese tarts straight out of the oven. All of this was with matching wines by the glass perfectly chosen from Portugal to Australia. All in all this was a wonderful evening. I would highly recommend Bibo Wine Bar for anything from a special dinner for two to a large group booking for a celebration. Either way you will be looked after and will have a truly special dinning experience.

Claires kitchen at le Salon

Reviewed By Jackie M

There’s a collective intake of breath in the intimate dining room when everyone opens their menus. Fanning out like piano accordions, each menu’s glowing white light captures guests’ faces in a state of childlike wonder as they scratch their heads and wonder what it is they’re meant to eat. Eat the pages of the menu? It’s rather absurd, but then so is the nonsensical and satirical movement Le Salon DadA is based upon. Being familiar with Marc Kuzma’s work at El'Circo at Slide, I entered Claire’s Kitchen at Le Salon with a fair idea of what to expect. In this setting Kuzma (who is also known as Claire de Lune) has kicked things up to the next level using a City of Sydney night-time diversification grant. These monies are all about local council trying to restore some of Sydney’s faded night-time glory, decimated by Gladys Berejiklian’s lockout laws. It's a perverse situation of local government giving what the state government has taken away.But I digress… Kuzma’s resulting night, (which will set you back $140/head) is based upon Cabaret Voltaire, a Swiss enclave of artists escaping the First World War. DadA was anti-establishment, anti-reason and anti-logic. DadA was the antidote to the bourgeois capitalist interests that the artists believed had led people into war in the first place. Following this line, our first course takes curative form as a wartime first aid kid with tongue depressor, bandages and a petri dish containing a smooth French mushroom parfait topped with sauternes jelly. Scraped onto crackers, it’ll sustain you through your cocktail construction – the recipe and ingredients are in your bucket.With shiso leaf-infused vodka, nettle liqueur and pomegranate cordial, it’s a tangy, slightly more sophisticated Cosmopolitan with little blasts of sweetness when the pearls of passionfruit and lime pop on your tongue. The rest of your boozing is done in the usual fashion, with many wines - including the 2017 Cave de Turckheim Pinot Blanc ($70/bottle) we selected - available by glass, carafe and full bottle. The fresh, dry white wine proves easy to enjoy through some on-stage art that sees a semi-nude model enhanced with the f-holes from a cello, and some at-the-table card tricks. It’s a multimedia affair, with German expressionist film, The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari (1920), playing on screens placed throughout the dining room. Seen through the eyes of an asylum patient, the film may leave you wondering what’s real and what’s not.Contortionist Jade Twist continues our surrealist descent by wearing a black zentai suit with eyes and lips in all the wrong places. Tying herself in knots until she looks like a human pretzel, Twist makes it hard to know which way is up, and which direction way is forward. It's a perfect segue to a course based upon The Persistence of Memory (1931), arguably Salvador Dali’s most famous surrealist work. From the edge of a martini glass, his melting pocket watch drips in cracker form to accompany a well-spiced cold capsicum and tomato soup. Your soup is poured from a vessel that is itself a nod to Dali’s 1972 piece, Marilyn Monroe, shown up on the screens.It’s this attention to detail that makes Kuzma’s night so intellectually rich for art-lovers, with clever details like Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel (1913) in the stairwell on the way up to the dining room. Even the table setting is done in the style of DadA, down to a DadA print cloth serviette. Without wanting to give it all away, the next course – the only hot course - a rainbow trout roulade, is a nod to Joan Miró. Everything on the splattered abstract plate is edible, down to the crisp fish bones.On the stage, the inimitable Shauna Jensen is clad in a thematic ‘singing fish’ (one of Miro’s recurring motifs) kaftan, as she belts out Ella Jenkins' Wade in the Water. Jensen returns later in the evening with This Is Me from The Greatest Showman. It's guaranteed to leave you uplifted – from her talented lips the power ballad’s lyrics sound inspirational rather than twee. Kuzma has been booking cabaret acts for decades and has a real eye for talent, as you’ll no doubt discover across the night.Le Salon DadA is a rich and punny, multimedia experience that will appeal to all of your senses. “Just like the painting, there is no confusion, it is designed to put in your mouth,” Kuzma finishes.Le Salon DadA takes place on Sunday evenings at Claire's Kitchen at le Salon. Bookings are essential.

Light & Modern French Fine Dining, yet with BYO.Could be described as Modern Australian with French influences or Lighter French Cuisine. Quality rather than quantity; starting from the initial bread with lovely olive oil and balsamic vinegar dipping sauce, progressing to the ceviche king fish entre & twice cooked pork belly with well balanced accompanying sauce and salad.My partners scallop entre and duck main were also very good.The restaurant has a lovely relaxed décor, with tables not too close together allowing easy conversation without having to raise ones voice. The wine prices are very reasonable, but if you have a favourite bottle of red at home take it with you as will only cost you $10 corkage.Only minor whinges are that steamed vegetables were string beans only and that waiters were slightly on the under attentive side.
