More about Hotel Palisade – The Public House, Millers Point

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).

Great location, awesome views excellent service and great value and quality pub food. Before you leave check out the view from the balcony of the top floor restaurant/bar. Well worth a visit.

Staff were super friendly and helpful. Restaurant wasn't open as it was Australia Day, so there was only a BBQ outside. Great atmosphere! Although very busy, people were constantly coming and going, so able to get a table quickly.

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.

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.

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.
