Hotel Palisade has really made the most of their phenomenal location with Henry Deane. Spread out over two floors at the zenith of their elegant boutique hotel on Bettington Street in Millers Point, Henry Deane is a triumph of modern Australian design with a sensitive eye for this location’s historic charm, celebrating the amazing surroundings. Henry Deane’s huge windows put all of Sydney on display for dinner and lounge guests, from the Harbour Bridge to Darling Harbour and myriad islands and points in between stretching into the distance.
However, though this hotel restaurant on Bettington Street in Millers Point is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque spots in Sydney to enjoy a tipple and a nibble, the food at Henry Deane is certainly not to be outdone by the views. The chefs handpick suitable items from all over the canon of modern Australian cuisine, from lip-smacking seafood (oysters au naturel with merlot vinegar, kingfish sashimi with bok choy and wasabi, for example) to intriguing fusion features (spiced cauliflower with almond crunch and smokey sauce) and exquisite desserts (we dare you to pass up the coconut and vanilla sago with mango, pomegranate and macadamia nuts).
The food was excellent and a great price point. Enjoyed the experience. Casual atmosphere and away from the city. The roof top looks like a great place for sundowners.
Best baby octopus I've ever had, paired with the reisling was sensational. Tapas style with a great menu. Amazing views and friendly staff. All of this made up for the pricey lunch menu. Great venue for a special event lunch.
Great views and food - surprised that there were not more people eating!!!! Staff very friendly and willing to assist and the location is slightly removed from the tourist throng.
Recently enjoyed a Friday lunch at the Palisade. Friendly staff, really delicious food and a terrific renovation of a genuinely historic pub in The Rocks. Highly recommended.
Food was good. We had the sashimi and crab milk buns and both were excellent. The tomato salad was good but would have been so much better with less dressing. Just too much balsamic. Nice wines too. Staff very pleasant. Only negative is the 10% service charge automatically added to the bill. OK it tells you on the menu to expect it but it's not that common these days. Overall a good experience and would definitely go back :-)
Brisket burger was ok. Cauliflower macaroni cheese veggie option is as bland as food gets - zero taste, as if there was no cheese. The staff should try the food they serve. The guy behind the bar hadn't tried the Mac cheese, so was in no position to warn us against it! Otherwise, great surroundings, atmosphere, service and decor. We'll definitely be back!
Wonderful afternoon at the hotel palisade! The food was delicious - all share dishes. We loved the kingfish, the crab rolls and the lamb special. The staff and service was excellent and the 360 degree views of Sydney just beautiful.
Very small menu and nothing really that the kids could enjoy except garlic bread. Apparently they are running on a limited kitchen at the moment and the meals, whilst good reflect this, as there wasn't much in the way of a true pub meal. But service was excellent and pub itself has a lovely feel...great for adults, not young families.
Very good pub food and excellent staff. We had a look at Henry Deane restaurant on the top, again excellent staff and will try the food here next time to look out at the magnificent harbour view. Love the old style of the building.
Great service and atmosphere. The food is really good quality and a bit more sophisticated than standard pub fare. Love that you have the option of upstairs cocktail lounge, a bistro and pub. Overall excellent venue.
Despite incorrect booking, we were all still fitted in to a great spot upstairs which was very good of the staff. delicious food and stunning views. Fantastic night, will definitely be back soon.
Funky noisy and jumping til late. Great pub food and bar service in this little hotel on a hill. A must for anyone especially those searching for Sydney before highrise took over.
This place has a small menu, but the food is great. The pub itself is beautiful with a stylish reno that is stunning. Great selection of micro beers. Would recommend to anyone.
Great food and large portions, ideal location and palce for a quick week day meal/ work meeting. Beautiful sections upstairs for weekend catch ups one of the best views in Sydney.
We were a group of 6. We walked along Barrangaroo then had lunch at the Palisades. We sat in the parlour area at a table by the window. Service , food and atmosphere were all very good.
The food and service were great. I scheduled a work function there for a few people. The only downside is that there was so much noise that we couldn't hear each other :-(. Very important point for a get together. Otherwise everything was great.
Excellent venue, food and service and the view is amazing. I would definitely recommend it for a drink or a meal day or night although Friday evening very busy
Place is great, food was amazing. DUe to Mother's day, staff were a bit overwhelmed with the large number of patrons, although they still managed to provide a great service, Thanks... we'll be returning
Really nice food, friendly staff & great views from the top 2 floors. Great location to take international visitors for a different perspective of our wonderful Harbour. Have already recommended the Palisade to friends
Great place and friendly staff. We all had an amazing time and food was really good and price was also very reasonable. We will go back for sure!
