Welcome to Sydney’s conservatory of green.

Set amongst an ‘indoor-alfresco’ dining setting, Alibi Bar & Dining serves up Mediterranean veggie fare with flair and soul.

Pairing Australia’s pioneer of plant-based cuisine, Shannon Martinez with legendary mixologist Andrea Gualdi, Alibi creates a sensory journey of discovery.

Expect a soulful menu that leans heavily on Martinez’s Spanish heritage, and a fresh and sustainable drinks list that takes inspiration from the Mediterranean style of drinking.

Currently, we trade in the restaurant Tuesday to Saturday evenings from 5:30pm.

We offer bookings in our bar as well as our restaurant (dining). Bar bookings are offered a brief snack menu with some substantial options.

In the restaurant we offer an A la Carte menu option Tuesday to Thursday. On Fridays and Saturdays, we offer a share menu.

    Amazing food and amazing service. We had the pumpkin risotto, the cacio e pepe, the focaccia bread, quince filled donuts and sangria crumble with saffron custard which was heavenly! Our servers were friendly and helpful with making our selections.

    Dinner: Loved Alex and his suggestion for the squid stew. Loved Felix, again, mostly because he's Felix. And all the other team - you were all wonderful. Tasty food too - was a good notch above the last menu we tried there a year ago. Beautiful setting. And being all vegan makes it extra special. Just nice all round. Great job all of you, including the ones hiding in the kitchen. Breakfast: TBH not particularly vegan friendly at all. Room for improvement here.

    In a nice quiet restaurant at a lovely hotel. The Staff were amazing and the service was great. The food was good, however it didn't really reflect the price point. It felt like a pub meal. Fried olives in a basket and the mushrooms in a sauce for starters were average. The squid was ok, very average but the eggplant fig main was really really good. I love that it is a fully vegan restaurant and I really didn't want to say anything negative as it's so hard to find nice fully plant based place. Thank you.

    I went here for my birthday with my friends, absolutely loved it! Whether you’re a vegan or a meat eater, the food is incredible…. my personal favourite was the mushroom. Another bit that made our experience was our interaction with all the service workers. I don’t drink alcohol so I was given a surprise mocktail which was the yummiest drink I’ve had in a while. We managed to have a conversation with every service worker we came across and they were all lovely. Finally, the place itself is drop dead gorgeous! They have art installations all across so keep an eye out for them. I don’t live in Sydney but when I visit next time, I’m definitely coming back. :)

    We arrived on time, but we had trouble locating the staff. After waiting for a while, we had to search for them ourselves. The food was disappointing, and the prices were high. The Caesar salad was just lettuce with a few croutons, the focaccia was not good and was slightly burnt on top, and the quiche was microwaved. The only decent dish was the bravas. The staff were okay, but we were unsure what to order at some point, and the staff member appeared annoyed, tapping on the table a few times. I have visited Alibi before and noticed a significant decline in the quality of both the food and service. On top of that, we thought we had booked a high tea, but for some reason, they've removed that option for now.

    Don’t leave without trying the mushrooms, they are a must-have. The croquettes are delicious and the sangria desert is not bad at all. But the service is what I would go back for.

    Everything we ate was delicious and the staff were very attentive. The venue is lovely. We tried all 3 desserts and they were all amazing! The mains were a little small for sharing so add in some sides. The potatoes were next level as was the pumpkin risotto. A really lovely place to visit.

    A nice vegan restaurant with lovely staff. A fair bit of choice. However, dishes with a view to healthy eating would be great. E.g. some raw food, such as a range of fresh salads and cooked unprocessed cereals such as whole grain rice and pasta. Desserts which are not covered in processed sugar.

    One thing I've missed since turning Vegan 7years ago is a good crumbly schnitzel and this place delivers! A huge portion with parmigiana sauce, delicious. My wife and I just celebrated our anniversary here and it's a very fancy posh restaurant, very friendly staff and good music at a good volume. We had three starters, mushrooms, focaccia, and spanakopita, and we polished the plates. Highly recommend, we'll definitely be back and not just for special events.

    The food was incredible. Delicious! Hats off to the chef. Unfortunately the service was disappointing. We were offered one drink when we started and not offered another drink again after that. (We probably would have ordered 3-4 drinks each if we could have) it was difficult to get the attention of staff and you could continually see 3-5 staff gathering at the bar talking when we were looking for service. We had over ordered and a wait staff suggested to put it in a take away and bring it back, when we paid and requested the take away they forgot and had thrown it out.
