Owner did not show care at all. Quite a disapponting experience actually. I would Hope that when a diner like me shows care and interest that an owner would at least show that , when the floor wasn't that busy

Food presentation and food was good. Unfortunately taste of food was at times brand. Two new of us had the dory which was overlooked. One person had the lamb which they said was very good.

Food here was superb! I've had my fair share of vising hatted restaurants however I would say the food at this place is better than a lot of them. The flavours were interesting and went well together. The thyme mayonnaise with the prawns was just an explosion of flavour in my mouth. Spatchcock was cooked perfectly, not dry and the onion risotto was delicious! Service was good however seating was a bit cramped. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

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
