Li’l Darlin Darlinghurst can be found along Victoria Street between the intersections of Liverpool Street and Victoria Street, and the menu has to be seen (and eaten) to be believed. Combine fantastic tapas and pizza with an endless selection of cocktails and drinks, plus one of the city’s best options for private hire, and you’ll be the next in line to fall for Li’l Darlin Darlinghurst.
Li'l Darlin Darlinghurst is well known in Sydney for its ability to put on stellar private parties and media events. The staff here know how it all fits together, and work tirelessly to make hen’s nights, birthday parties, spontaneous soirees, product launches and fashion events slip down easily. It’s all in the details, from the intricate kitchen offering of Spanish tapas to authentic Italian pizza, to the resident mixologists’ endlessly inventive creations, to the stylish venue. Li’l Darlin Darlinghurst, along Victoria Street, is no different. But then again, it is.
The chefs at Li'l Darlin Darlinghurst have whiled away the wee hours to bring Victoria Street punters a fantastic menu of pizza (the Peking duck is unmissable), some of the best tapas in town, their rolled up versions of their house pizza (again, the Peking duck!), and the pocket bar that serves up rustic, oven-baked puff pastry treats. All of these match naturally with the signature Darlin Cocktail Collection, a selection of fresh juice and espresso based concoctions, a famous rum degustation menu and (should we continue) the brand-loyal Bottega Cocktail Range. This Li’l Darlin has us a little dizzy, to be honest.
This place is always great. Amazing cocktails and delicious food. Still my favourite place to go to catch up with friends. Can't really recommend it enough.
Fantastic cocktails and friendly attentive staff. Highly recommend you try "The Beast" and sit with a view to the cocktail making process for entertainment, we will be back !
Nice Cocktails and very cheap if you go at happy hour times, friendly staff
Great food great atmosphere. Tapas were amazing and we wanted to order the wholevmenu, and let's not discuss the array of alcoholic drinks.. so colourful and yummy. Def go back again
3 of us were seated at a small high table by the side of the room. I was a little confused by this when there were larger tables available that no one was sitting at. When we asked could we move we were told the tables were reserved but no one sat at them the whole 3 hours that we were at at restaurant. The food was yummy, cocktails were to die for but when we asked to split the bill, which i have done many times before at the same place we were told it could it split by 2 but not by 3. Very strange if you ask me. But overall a good evening
We had a nice time and enjoyed the cocktail menu. Three people ordered the calamari salad (which was just calamari and leaves when it arrived) but unfortunately they all said it was very bland and didn't taste of much. They asked for extra dressing which was provided. Perhaps the salad needs a bit more than just leaves? The duck roll and a burger were very nice and the girls filled up on the leftover fries from the burger. A nice venue, think we were just unlucky with that dish.
Friendly Doorman, friendly staff, quick services, really good food, decent prices and omg fairyfloss cocktail!!! So Good. Among other cocktails they can make custom drinks, I thoroughly enjoyed this place, it does get a bit loud at night, make sure you book a table to get a spot without having to wait.
Nice and friendly service. Delicious meatballs and menu. Cocktails not overly expensive The only negative was that the waiters kept clearing plates as soon as last bit of food eaten and while others on table were still eating. giod to be efficient but equally annoying and rude. Would been better if they cleared table once everyone had finished meal.
Great food, great cocktails and great atmosphere. I came to lil darlin on a Saturday night with a few friends and it was very lively. Being a tapas style restaurant I enjoyed sharing multiple dishes to get a flavour of everything. Will be coming back!!
The drinks were amazing, Absolutely loved the fairy floss martini, the door man was so nice, and the bartenders and staff we're super friendly. The food is great, I wish I had more room at the time to order more. Too full hahahaha.
