Sydney’s Una’s is your ticket to ride when it comes to European cuisine, from Australia to Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Hungary. This is nothing new – Una’s have been taking Darlinghurst diners on a culinary voyage since 1970, and this venerable guide to the delicacies of the old world shows no signs of letting up. Found down Victoria Street in a pair or tastefully refurbished terraces, this long-standing institution raises a toast (of European beer or schnapps, perhaps) both to Europe and their loyal legions of gastronomic fans.
Una’s has a long and tapestried history, changing hands at least three times (over four decades) while gradually refining the mandate when it comes to glorious pan-European cuisine. It’s been over twenty years since Una’s Victoria Street, Darlinghurst premises expanded to take in two neighbouring terraces near the corner with Surrey Street, and since then it’s been a standby for Sydney-side lovers of German schnitzel, Hungarian goulash, Austrian apfelstrudel, Dutch beef croquettes and more.
The philosophy down at Darlinghurst’s Una’s Restaurant is hospitality from the heart, and from breakfast through lunch to the main event in the evening, you’re bound to get a warm welcome here in this bustling part of Sydney. Start the day with classic Bircher muesli, brunch or lunch on Swiss bread sandwiches (a popular one comes with Una’s legendary schnitzel), but be sure to book when dinner rolls around – this is where this Victoria Street legend really shines. Una's beef goulash with spätzle (Austrian noodles), pork knuckles, sauerkraut, rosti, paprika chicken from Hungary – all washed down proper European beer and schnapps, plus old world wines.
Always love the food although the the daytime waitresses are much friendlier...and night times are super busy. Going back to our normal lunches! But will be back
