Kittyhawk Sydney is the sophisticated restaurant and cocktail bar that you need in your life. Situated on Philip Lane, this Sydney spot has an exquisite French offering and decor that harks back to the Liberation of Paris in 1944. But, what exactly does that mean? Well, you can expect a whole load of old world charm, sleek mahogany furniture, exposed brickwork and some stunning framed artwork. Then there’s cocktails, a full wine list, Champagne and all kinds of beers to entertain you. Plus, the food ain’t half bad either! So, next time you feel like a swanky evening in a very cool setting, we can’t recommend Kittyhawk enough.

Absolutely loved it! Service, staff, food and vibe was amazing!
beautiful service with beautiful food, thank you so much x
Overall good experience. The staff were terrible, however. No explanation of food or matching wine. They all seemed a bit disinterested/lost.

If you’re planning to pay Kittyhawk Sydney a visit, you’re probably already aware of the delicious French feast that await you. But just in case you’re aren’t or if you need a refresher, let’s delve a little bit deeper into the extensive French menu on offer at Kittyhawk on Philip Lane in Sydney. We highly advise kicking things off with some starters to share, because what better way to get a feel for the menu and connect with your fellow diners? We love the oysters with Champagne granita; baked camembert with truffle and quince paste, lemon and thyme; and the steak tartare with cornichons and spiced ketchup. Plus, a cheese board or charcuterie platter wouldn’t go amiss either.
Moving on to the main event at Kittyhawk Sydney, the pot roast poussin with lardons, brandy, tarragon and mushrooms is particularly decadent. If you’re a fan of classic dishes, how about the moules frites or steak frites? Anyone dining at Kittyhawk as a pair should most definitely consider the chateaubriand which consists of a 750g fillet steak, mushrooms, watercress and a red wine jus. This beauty takes a little bit longer to cook, so you can indulge in some of the incredible cocktails on offer while you wait. Sydney foodies should consider themselves very lucky to have this spot right on their doorstep, that’s for sure.
