Fine Dining without the attitude. It's all about the food here.

We love Ester. This is our go to restaurant for a special occasion or a meal with a difference. Not only are the meals executed brilliantly but it is the unique ingredients and unusual flavor pairings in the ever changing menu that keep us on our toes and coming back!

Industrial techy deco with a buzzing vibe. Creative combination of dishes! Love the Corn and Scallops.

Very good modern Australian food but I expected to be more surprised by the menu. Some meals were too spicy or not enough salty.

Excellent service and a wonderful experience. The roasted oysters and king prawns were 10/10.

The food was fresh and unusual, the hand cut noodles with abalone was delicious. The wood fire cooking was simple but provided great flavour to the fish and the cauliflower dish. Staff was nice and efficient. Highly recommended.

Staff very good. Food I didn’t find that great which was unfortunate as it’s renowned for being good. The bread starter at $22 is not worth it at all. I find the food very over priced and the wine list doesn’t cater for all price wise. Very few wines under $100. All organic. Nice decor inside. Sadly I wouldn’t go back nor recommend.

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
