If searching for a dining experience around the Rocks or Millers Point that you want to be unforgettable while also remaining casual and sociable, you will be hard pressed to beat Henry Deane at Hotel Palisade on Sydney’s Bettington Street. Open every day for lunch and dinner, Hotel Palisade’s premium restaurant showcases the best of modern Australian cuisine through elegant share platters designed to enhance the sociability of this amazing space.
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).
Lovely table near the door with a fab view, great food and good drinks. Nice service as well from friendly staff. Note, the Public House is on the ground floor, so it has a bit of a view from some tables not all.
I must say that I've been here twice and it's been fantastic on both occasions. The food really is top notch and I would highly recommend
On a surprisingly quiet Sunday night, the Palisade served up the highest quality pub food made even better with a good wine selection and the excellent Balter XPA on tap. Top marks.
Great little pub with fine food at a reasonable price. They reserved the best seat in the house too. Check it out if you want an authentic Aussie pub experience.
Awesome pub! Great food, great spot, fabulous ambience. The menu isn't extensive (that's a good thing in my opinion), but there's an excellent choice on offer. Our food was served quickly and was completely delicious. Service was great, although the food ordering process seems a tad clunky for groups ordering separately—especially for other punters at the bar who only want to order a drink. Online reservation is so quick and easy, loads of options to book a table on the half hour and a 20 minute leeway offered before your table is given away, which is definitely helpful when coming from the office for a midday sitting. Confirmation was received quickly, and two last-minute requests to increase our party size were also quickly confirmed. Awesome place for a delicious lunch with colleagues or friends.
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!
Menu was meh. Service was slow and getting there was difficult. Probs won’t go there again. I waited to be served and then 2 women approached the bar, demanded to be served and the bar guy served them first. That’s terrible service in my eyes. I even told the guy I’d been waiting longer and he still served the women first.
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.
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.
