About

Arthur is Surry Hills’ newest neighbourhood restaurant. Headed up by Tristan Rosier, and named after his grandfather, the team aim to showcase our excitement for the local produce on offer through the constantly evolving set menu and all Australian wine list. Served to the table by our chefs, our menu is created so you can focus on your conversation and company, rather than what you’ll be ordering.

Continuing on with Tristan’s family tradition where his grandparents used to get everyone together, and like his parents do now, we now hope to do this for our community and be the place where you celebrate milestones, catch up with loved ones and spend time with those who matter the most.

Bookings essential.

So pleasantly surprised. I have heard good reports about Arthur and what was delightful was that it was even better than the recommendations.

Probably the best food for value the price I have ever had. It was seriously one of the best places I’ve been to in years and that’s a massive compliment coming from a fine dining background. Would highly recommend and would want to know when menu change happens.

Thanks very much for great night

Arthur is the ultimate location for dinner, lunch etc. I took my partner to Arthur for his birthday and we were absolutely blown away by not just the delicious food but the amazing service. Arthur is now our favourite dining destination!

Really enjoyed the food and service. Was an exceptional meal all round. My only minor complaint is the stool to bar height ration. The stools are a tad too high which makes sitting at the bar quite uncomfortable.

Classy restaurant in Surry Hills which serves modern Australian cuisine in an intimate setting. It's degustation-only dining but they do cater for dietary requirements. The dishes are shared between two diners so it's a little different to most degustations where each diner gets their own serve, but the dishes are exciting and showcase the ingredients well. Highly recommended.

This was my second time to Arthur, and it didn't disappoint. I enjoyed a different menu this time, which was just as delicious as the first, with a delicious wine menu to match!
The only small downside on this experience was that we felt a little rushed by the waiters.
I was catching up with a friend that I hadn't seen in ages - and for just about every course that was served, they hurried us to finish the plates so the next course could be served. I understand that you only have a license to 11:30pm, so the meals need to be served for everyone to finish by this time. It just would have been nicer to have a little more time.
Regardless, I would still highly recommend this restaurant to everyone - and have told so many people about it! :)

Good effort at innovation and only a little pretentious. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. Only half-full so the noise was ok, but it would be intolerable if it was near capacity. If you want to save on laundering table cloths and vacuuming a carpet, at least put something on the walls to control the sound.
The small all-Australian wine list was vey good and quite reasonably priced, too.

We had a good evening and thoroughly enjoyed the food that was served. The food was high quality, nicely presented and very tasty. The only draw back was the time frame/slot. We knew we were on a timer, but another hour would have been amazing so we could have enjoyed more of the delicious wine. Overall, we had a great evening and would recommend.

Eat here! The food at Arthur is excellent. There is a very thoughtful combination and balance of flavours and textures. Flavours are distinct but always well balanced. Simple ingredients are elevated to high level of enjoyment. Technically the cooking is of a high order. The wine list complements the food very well indeed. The pacing of service is well judged and information about each course is informative but not overpowering. Our only criticism is that a strong espresso between dessert courses would be desirable - coffee is not served at Arthur....

Amazing neighborhood gem! Great value for a 10 course tasting menu, everything was absolutely delicious and innovative. Chefs even made sure to accommodate couple of dietary preferences and changed up couple of the dishes as my partner is allergic to macadamias and i dont like capsicum. The bread was amazing! Definitely recommend this place!

Our dinner was nice but neither of us absolutely loved it.

We were vegetarian and ceoliac and we felt that the menu substitutes were a bit disappointing.
The service wasnt the best - they started bringing food without telling us how they were going to adjust the menu for us and before anyone had asked us if we wanted to order drinks. Nobody asked us about drinks until 40minutes into our service.
We also felt as though we were a bit rushed and the bill was brought to the table without us asking for it.
When we made the booking we were asked to specify if the evening was for a special occasion (it was, it was for our anniversary) but no mention was ever made of this, and nothing was done to mark the occasion.

Overall its a very pretty warm little place to sit, and the courses that were done nicely were delicious. It was a good evening but not outstanding.

One of the best dining experiences you can get in Sydney. From the atmosphere, the service, through to every element on the plate (and the plates themselves, why not!).

A warm vibe, always welcoming, and always an experience for the palate. This is my 3rd time visiting, and each time has been equally enjoyable - showing this isn't a one-trick-pony style joint. The ethos if spending time with those you are dining with, and having a progressive menu to explore through the evening makes for quality conversation/time, and also a real appreciation for good quality produce. The love, care, and connection with the paddock (both animal and plant) shines through - the chefs should be commended.

I'll be back for my 4th visit before too long.
