Modern Australian
Arthur is Surry Hills’ newest neighbourhood restaurant. Headed up by Tristan Rosier, and named after his grandfather, the team aim to showcase our excitement for the local produce on offer through the constantly evolving set menu and all Australian wine list. Served to the table by our chefs, our menu is created so you can focus on your conversation and company, rather than what you’ll be ordering.

Continuing on with Tristan’s family tradition where his grandparents used to get everyone together, and like his parents do now, we now hope to do this for our community and be the place where you celebrate milestones, catch up with loved ones and spend time with those who matter the most.

Bookings essential.

Intriguing combinations of food delightfully served. The set menu idea is brilliant and very well executed.

Great wine list, too

Our dinner was nice but neither of us absolutely loved it.

We were vegetarian and ceoliac and we felt that the menu substitutes were a bit disappointing.
The service wasnt the best - they started bringing food without telling us how they were going to adjust the menu for us and before anyone had asked us if we wanted to order drinks. Nobody asked us about drinks until 40minutes into our service.
We also felt as though we were a bit rushed and the bill was brought to the table without us asking for it.
When we made the booking we were asked to specify if the evening was for a special occasion (it was, it was for our anniversary) but no mention was ever made of this, and nothing was done to mark the occasion.

Overall its a very pretty warm little place to sit, and the courses that were done nicely were delicious. It was a good evening but not outstanding.

One of the best dining experiences you can get in Sydney. From the atmosphere, the service, through to every element on the plate (and the plates themselves, why not!).

A warm vibe, always welcoming, and always an experience for the palate. This is my 3rd time visiting, and each time has been equally enjoyable - showing this isn't a one-trick-pony style joint. The ethos if spending time with those you are dining with, and having a progressive menu to explore through the evening makes for quality conversation/time, and also a real appreciation for good quality produce. The love, care, and connection with the paddock (both animal and plant) shines through - the chefs should be commended.

I'll be back for my 4th visit before too long.

Interesting concept. Love the space, good service. Food looks stunning, but not backed up by the taste. Style over substance with no balance of flavours. Love what they’re trying though.

We had a great night, the food and service was amazing. There was also a great selection of wines to choose from. My only issue was that one of our party cancelled and their strict no cancellation policy was still kept in place. Our party of 6 spent over $800, I think it would've been nice if they could've made an exception.

Although I did t enjoy the food this time, I would still recommended Arthur as it’s a lovely local restaurant with a good atmosphere. For me, the food was not to my taste this time. This is just personal preference. My first visit was a few months ago and the food was outstanding. Great service from the staff and good wine pairings on request. I will visit again when the menu changes.

Arthur is only a few minute walk from where my partner and I live in Surry Hills. We had been looking forward to trying out Arthur since it arrived a few months ago. We gathered a few of our favorite friends that are foodies and and arrived with very positive expectations from the many excellent reports we had from reviews and reports from friends. The beginning of our degustation menu was delightful including a very nice wine we chose to accompany the food. Gradually the five of us noticed the three people sitting behind us were quite loud and their boisterous conversation was intruding and became quite obnoxious. We could here everything they were saying because they were leaning back and screaming at each other with outdoor voices. We were all old friends who had not seen each other for a while and were keen to catch up besides enjoying Arthur’s beautiful food. The.atmosphere became so unbearable because of the unbelievably selfish behavior of our fellow patrons seated next to us, I spat the dummy and gave them a serve. They used normal voices after that but the confrontation put a damper on our Arthur experience. Let’s face it, most crowded restaurants in Sydney have abusive noise levels. I have suffered through many expensive dinners yelling into the ear of the person sitting next to me. This experience was beyond that. The management or employees should have asked the selfish thoughtless patrons next us to lower their noise level but chose not to confront them. We all came away saying great food and service but hideous atmosphere because of the buffoons sitting next to us.

Excellent innovative food though slightly disappointed that my OpenTable booking did not show I was a non red meat eater and subsequently the main course offering wa adequate rather than great. Our table of 4 thought there was way too much garlic in the food. LOVED the bonito dish and the bursts especially

Most of the meals were delicious but adaption to vegetarian and pescitarian options was pretty average. The eggplant and mushroom main for veggies was disappointing and simply removing muscles with no replacement lacks inspiration

It’s not often that I give 5 stars across the board but this was a ‘total’ experience deserving of it. I went with 3 others for a birthday celebration and from the moment we stepped in to the time we left, we were all taken in with the whole show - the food, service, ambience and the small details that make the difference between a 4 star rating and 5. Thanks Team Arthur - will definitely be back soon.

I loved the space and what Trsitan & the team have created, they have managed to capture the essence, where so many fail, of what makes a great restaurant and that’s the 'whole package’, where you could
sit all day and wish it was an extension of your own dining room...

The food journey was delicious, such great value and loved their wine list, with some of my favourite top Australian producers. Very easy to navigate, short, succinct and had something for everyone….

Bread and butter as an starter? Whole restaurant was rushed between 20.30 and 22.30 to get the shift done. You could see the whole restaurant getting every course at the same time, so maybe just a bit smarter serving the courses out so it is less noticible for the guests. Constant pouring of the wine without ever asking if it is oke. When we didnt liked a course which ofcourse can happen, the waitress though we just didn’t like raw fish. (It was just this particular dish we didn’t like). It was blunt instead of hospitable to handle it this way. No coffee or thee possible. Overall restaurant looked gorgeous, wine was good. Food was not on the same level as the interieur and wines. So I left dissapointd.

The only thing to note was the space between the tables, it felt very awkward trying to maneuver between tables without disturbing the patrons along side, to make ones way to the rest room. Other than that I am extremely happy to recommend your restaurant to anyone. The service was excellent, the variety of food really good and the wine to match equally good. Well done and thank you!
