INSIDER tip

Executive Chef Arnolfo Raimondi was born and raised in Rome, Italy, from a family of restauranteurs. After opening his first restaurant in Rome in 2011 he moved to Hong Kong to further his culinary experience working along side Giandomenico Caprioli. Moving to Sydney in 2016 to open Olio, Kensington street, he then took over Eastside Bar and Grill and Gavroche Chippendale. Arnolfo was inspired to create this custom Parrilla grill due to his love of cooking on an open wood fire, and in-house dry-aging using the best of Australian produce.

    The 7 of us all had steaks and they were tough. The quality has really gone done not sure I will be back which is a shame as this is my 5th time at the restaurant.

    The location and ambience is fantastic. Service was poor and lots of miscommunication. Food was good but I won’t be raving about it or returning anytime soon.

    The food and service are quite nice, although a few types of steak are unavailable. The restaurant has a good wine list but only got limited choice if order by glass.
