Located in an industrial-style space that was previously a parking lot, Ester is one of the best spots in Chippendale - a neighborhood with tons of exciting spots to eat and drink. The food mainly comes out of the wood-fired oven (your family-style dishes will sometimes arrive with a dusting of charcoal), including things like burnt-butter prawns, whole chickens, cauliflower heads, and braised goat. But no matter what else you order, start your meal with the wood-fired oysters and a blood sausage sanga (an Australian term for sandwich).

For Chinese food in a grand setting, head to Mr. Wong. The two-levels are beautifully decorated and the whole menu is excellent.
The Boathouse Palm Beach
The view and the food at the Boathouse are more than worth the hour drive outside of Sydney.
