Restaurant Hubert

French in City Centre & Haymarket

The memorable descent into the sexy old-time ambience plunges you straight from suity Sydney into a 1930s movie. Delicious French fare comes in old-fashioned portions – think terrine, black pudding or escargots, plus a few more avant-garde creations. Candlelit tables and a long whisky-backed counter provide seating. There's no bookings for small groups, so wait it out in the bar area.

This is one of the few top-quality venues in Sydney to serve food this late (the kitchen closes at midnight). The bar in itself makes a great destination for a few cocktails – check out the vast collection of miniature bottles on your way down.
