The staff here are so knowledgeable but so approachable, it’s an absolute delight to have a Chat with staff about all things food and drink. The kitchen is manned by absolute talent as each dish that comes out is on point- surprising on flavour combination and beautifully cooked.

Missed out on the duck and quail even though we were there for 1:00pm booking!!!!! Many other favourites to chose from thankfully.

Every single dish was fantastic! I brought my mother for her birthday and she's a picky eater but she enjoyed everything! Favourites were the roasted oysters with pepperberry, potato bread with trout roe, raw kingfish with burnt mandarin, pipis with garlic and chilli, cod with mushroom soy, and the sourdough ice cream!!!

We sat at the bar overlooking the kitchen area watching all the staff at work which was very interesting and entertaining.

About Ester

Ester-mania... Much-loved by Chippendale's multimedia creatives, Ester restaurant is seriously smokin’ hot...in more ways than one. Not only does this quirky eatery reign in the diners but it dishes out some seriously delicious share plates (all smokin’ hot), whipped up in a massive red hot wood fire oven that sits at the heart of the kitchen. With the oven the focus of much of the cooking, the chefs are trying to get everything touched by it, somehow. Anything from fish, chicken, lamb, duck, steak and even blue swimmer crab will come from the flaming hot oven. Try the half-head of cauliflower roasted until charred and served on a creamy almond emulsion with fresh mint (it’s absolute perfection!) and save room for a spoonful of caramel semifreddo for dessert (you won’t regret it). The space is an absolute charmer, wrought from rendered concrete, painted steel and glass. It’s the perfect place for a drop-in, sit at the bar style meal or a book-ahead, wine and dine with friends type of occasion. Ester has gone back to basics cooking principles and it’s paying off, this contemporary diner will be smokin’ hot for a long time to come. Best dish:half-head of cauliflower roasted until charred and served on a creamy almond emulsion with fresh mint
