Friday Night - cocktails & dinner
My wife & I had an enjoyable meal at The Beresford in Sydney on Friday.
Excellent cocktails in the buzzy bar with a good meal in the restaurant. Service was a touch chaotic, but the tasting menu was excellent value - $70 for 6 courses
- cheese & truffle toastie
- seared scallops with witlof
- gnocchi with ham hock & peas
- blue eye with more truffle
- beef fillet with artichoke & porcini
- an unfortunately terrible dessert - a sort of almond & chocolate mousse (it couldn't be perfect)
It was pretty full-on food, typical of a rustic italian cuisine. I'd definitely go back.

Would anybody be able to recommend more friday night places in Sydney that serve good martinis and offer a good 'degu' at under $100 a head?
Lovely blog- I'll be checking in with your experiences again! Thanks for sharing the hot tip - Beresford tasting menu looks great.
I can recommend Assiette, Surry Hills, for its degustation menu. I also love the Banquet dinner at Longrain- with an obligatory wait for a 'table' (it's communal) over a thoroughly decent martini. The friday night scene can be loud though (it's the hip night and they bring in a dj), which may or may not be your thing.
Thanks for the compliment. Just arrived in Sydney so trying to get to all the best restaurants.
The tip about Longrain looks good. I didn't realise they had a banquet menu. Will be giving it a go. I've recently been to Sailors Thai, along with Spice I Am. With Longrain I get the complete set!
Beresford also have a great Italian Family Feast on sundays for lunch. $45 per head, antipasto, pasta or soup, a roast (we were served a roast pork shoulder yesterday) with sides (yesterday was pumpkin and witlof & blood orange salad)
Was stuffed and didn't require dinner
