Our host Amir (sp?) was friendly and lovey and fantastic. The food was absolutely delicious along with the perfectly matched cocktails for each dish. We'll definitely be back.

Excellent food. Not your usual bar menu. Good cocktails and friendly staff.

This place was warm and inviting. The staff greeted us with a warm smile and always had time for us. We had children with us so we were seated on the second floor where there are tables. The food was very tasty and presented beautifully. The spatchcock was our favourite! I cannot fault this place. When we left, my young daughter had trouble going down the winding stairs but a lovely customer from the bar helped her down. The gentleman working behind the bar gave us another smile and a wave despite being so busy. I really like this place. There is not a big selection of food but every dish is fantastic

We went for the degustation with matched wines. The waitress took time to explain each course and the wine to accompany it. Great food and great wines. This is a small cosy restaurant so book ahead.

About The Owl House

Have a hoot of a time Behind an unassuming red terrace door, on the Darlinghurst end of Crown Street, lies a neighbourhood watering hole that makes drinking at the ‘wrong’ end of Crown Street a much more pleasant affair. Downstairs, happy patrons crowd around the long narrow bar sipping cocktails under the oversized, naked light bulbs. Mingling with others, or even with owners Amir Halpert and Paul Loulli is not uncommon at this compact eatery so be prepared for bar banter and story trading if you enter this little local. Bar snacks such as smoked bone marrow and oxtail croquettes, and marinated Sicilian olives go down a treat. Or you can choose to dine upstairs on the second level, where things are a little more diner-friendly, and not such a tight squeeze. The best seats in the house are unquestionably up on the intimate balcony, which seats a party of four. But no matter where you sit at The Owl House, you’re sure to have one hoot of a time. Hoot, hoot! Best dish: smoked bone marrow and oxtail croquette
