Oozing charm, sophistication and 1940s cool, The Flynn is the place to be if you’re in Sydney. Having undergone a recent revamp, this CBD spot is fitted out with cosy, chic furniture and the attention to detail in the design is second to none, complementing the food and drinks just perfectly. As for the food, well, The Flynn’s got a range of choices to suit whatever mood you happen to be in. From casual and relaxed dining, to more formal set menus and, of course, a selection of bar snacks that go down a treat with a tipple or two. The dishes on offer are inspired by Australian favourites with an emphasis on seasonal produce, so you can be sure what you’re eating is of the best quality. Sounds just ideal to us!
The food and ambience at The Flynn suit each other like peas in a pod. The dishes are fresh and match the cocktails, which in turn both match the Old World charm this Sydney haunt evokes. If you’re in for drinks, keep an eye out for The Flynn specials and try your luck with the Sloe Mexico made with fresh orange, celery bitters, Cuervo tequila and Sloe gin, or, Henry’s summer punch mixed with Hendricks, Chambord, apple and lime. Or keep it classic with an espresso martini or negroni, a bottle of wine, prosecco or beer. No matter what your tipple of choice, this Sydney CBD haven will have you satiated just right.
As for the food, well, get ready. Kick things off in true Australian and Sydney style with a serving of salt & pepper squid with lashing of chilli, lemon and black garlic aioli and spiced chicken oyster tacos with slaw, mint, puffed rice and harissa yoghurt. Yum, right? Then, tuck into the apollo burger made with lamb shoulder, slaw, mint, harissa and house pickles; macadamia-crusted barramundi served with cauliflower mousse, wild mushrooms and truffle oil; or an artisanal pizza topped with buffalo mozzarella, basil, fior de latte and tomato. With plenty more on offer, do yourself a favour and reserve a table at The Flynn as soon as you can for some of the best Australian fare in Sydney. Located on Bligh Street in the CBD, make sure you bring your appetite!
The Flynn is a great location to catch up for lunch with a co worker. They also have on offer great daily specials. Will come back again.
The Flynn has a good menu, with plenty of options for a work lunch or after work dinner. The service was good and the length of time between ordering and the food arriving was pretty quick (we ate on a Tuesday, at lunch). I happily recommend them
Thank goodness they put the southwestern chicken burger back on the menu! I dream about that burger and the delicious crispy fries! Staff are excellent, very attentive and friendly. I love the decor and always choose to sit in the restaurant, love checking out the eclectic mix of 1950s ornaments. Booth tables are great for larger groups and the low lighting is just perfect. Always happy with the food, presentation and effort that goes into detail. Upmarket gastro pub that is still down to earth.
