Excellent food--we enjoyed every dish we ordered, but especially the spatchcock and the calamari. The service was quite slow. Nice ambiance overall. We came during restaurant week, so we got great value out of it.

Come early for fantastic cocktails before getting cosy in the restaurant above. The spatchcock was amazing and so was the gnocchi topped with Parmesan chips! The desserts could be improved with a bit of cream or something to cut into the rich flavours but if you love a very chocolatey choccy mousse then go for it!

Food was great. Try to make sure the bread with Wold Boar or Rabbit Terribe ain't too burnt.

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
