    It is better than it used to be:
    Selah near Circular Quay, good rep but always full when I try to drop in.
    Bistro Moncur, no bookings and closes at 9:00
    Otto at Woolloomooloo an old classic that is very glam
    NBIF and Icebergs at Bondi
    Longrain, Spice am I, and Sailors Thai (but Potts Point only)
    L'etoille in Paddington with some TV chef glam
    Pony in the Rocks and maybe the new Sake cheffed by Shaun Presland (Nobu and Shushi e)
    Hugos at the Cross
    Fishface in Darlinghurst but risky with a party as they only reserve until 6:30
    And maybe the best The Four in Hand Dining Room in Paddington, great review from Durack http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2010/0... I haven't been for a few years but my last visit was great.

          Has it changed? Their website says dinner is Tues to Sat.
          It is also on our to do list, recommended by Brett Graham in London; we could rendevous for dinner one evening?

              indeed it does. But in the news section it says it's open on sunday. I know someone who's booked it. I'd happily give it a go for dinner

                  Four in Hand excellent - great suggestion. Smallish dining room, good produce well presented, 90% hits apart from a strange dessert (roast peach, beer ice cream, cucumber soup). Pork, lamb, fish at our table - all excellent. Surprisingly good cheese baord for Australia. WIne list had some good priced stuff on it, we had a Cahors for 56

                    Glad you enjoyed it - I must push it up our list.

                    Interesting on the French wine, we tried Baroque in the rocks a few weeks ago and also enjoyed a good French (can't remember which but I think from the SW as well, Languedoc in this case) wine at a better price point than the Aussie counterparts.
