After spending years roaming the restaurant scene in London, my partner and I have had problems finding a really good middle class restaurant in Sydney. After eating at Ester last night, it's fair to say that our search is over. We had five smaller dishes and flathead as a main. Even though the main was good, the real standouts were the oysters, the raw kingfish and the squid ink noodles. Out of the deserts, we really liked the lemon meringue burnt pavlova. Funky wine selection plus attentive and relaxed service made a great evening. Highly recommended!

The service was not particularly friendly or warm. Food was pretty good but slightly too salty. The sourdough bread was delicious but it shouldn’t be a course in a tasting menu. We also didn’t appreciate the service charge for using a credit card. I don’t think I would return.

Great intimate atmosphere. Roasted oysters and prawns are a must try :)

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
