Wonderful food and great service. Go for the prawns if they are on the menu - the best I have had.

We went to Ester during a "foodie" trip where we also visited other top Sydney restaurants. I can see why this is the top - the service is impeccable and food was exceptional. The only reason I gave it a 9 instead of 10 was because I thought the wine list was a bit limited. Atmosphere was cosy and whilst its expensive, you get what you pay for here. Our favourites were the artichoke with egg butter and the king prawns. Definitely worth our visit from Melbourne!

Great food, the staff accommodated for my shellfish allergies on the set menu. Felt a little rushed at the end, only because they needed the table for the next sitting, otherwise was great!

I can see why it was rated so well. Great, uniquely prepared food but not crazy expensive.

Can absolutely see why it's been ranked the top restaurant in NSW in the AFR's Top 100 Restaurants

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
