My friend got the Swordfish and said it was dry but everyone else’s food was great!

On vacation. Loved the vegetarian menu.
We're so glad to hear you loved our vegetarian menu - we're a fan of it too. Don't forget to visit us next time you are in town!
Banksii has to be my absolute favourite restaurant/bar in Sydney.
Every time I dine here the experience with food; wine; vermouth and staff is exceptional. I love taking my interstate and overseas visitors here and they also make it their favourite :)
What a fantastic place for a celebratory dinner. Food was incredible and the service was first rate. We love this restaurant and will definitely be going back.

The staff were lovely and made our birthday dinner very special. Thank you for the treats!
Pleasant afternoon, good food although small portions, great location
Great food service and location one of my favorite at Barangaroo
The Balmain Bug tortellini is a must have dish. It's the perfect bites of seafood and pasta.
On arrival our reception was lovely, staff were lovely, we were celebrating two birthdays and as we all were seated our lovely waiter Jeff bought over to the birthday boys a lovely box with a handwritten note saying happy birthday from the staff - inside were chocolates - very lovely
Always a great experience. Consistently good food and service with a great selection of vermouths to try out.
I have eaten here many times and recommended it to many people. The food is great and the service excellent. The staff really try to form a relationship with the diner. It is quite an unusual style of service that I enjoy
This was an evening dinner with friends. Everything was as it should be service was exceptional food delicious and of course the ambulance outstanding. I heartily recommend it for all occasions casual and formal!
Such fantastic service, wonderful food and incredible wine! Lovely location. Maitre d Micky made the day an exceptional experience by looking after us so well.
Loved it!! Will definitely be back
It was my friend Erick’s 50th birthday! We had a great time and sincerely apologize for The 50th balloons annoying other diners. It was windy and we hadn’t accounted for that. Sorry if we were a bit loud laughing and enjoying ourselves. We all hadn’t been together for a long time, so loads to catch up on and celebrate!! Hopefully it added to your atmosphere!!
Erick dines there a lot and travels a lot globally so is an international diner but always says he loves Banksii!
Thanks so much to the staff for being so accommodating. We all loved it and will definitely recommend to all our friends... in fact we already have!!
Thanks so much
Loved the relaxed atmosphere, and the helpful, knowledgeable, and attentive staff. The food was delicious - stand outs being the chicken pate, green risotto, and brisket. The pipis were a little chewy and fishy but the sauce they were in made up for it. We explored the extensive vermouth menu, but the dirty martini was the best we’ve ever had. Will definitely be back!
Food, drinks, service were all great! A little regret was the beef brisket which could have been better if the meat was more tender. The macadamia cream dip with toast was awesome! Great place by the waterfront, not difficult to get a table on a Friday night. Love the vermouth cocktails!
Food was amazing but very slow service throughout the whole evening
Draconian for groups and it was 1/2 full. zzzzzxxxx
We had a great time at Banksii, our first visit. It was for our anniversary, we received a card and gift of petit fours! The food is great, the share mains are a good size for two, even three people. The starters are quite simple but the quality of the ingredients is what makes for a standout meal. The variety of vermouths is mind blowing (check out the wine list online before you visit for the first time) or take the advice of your waiter. I have a dietary issues which was fully addressed. Highly recommended!
my friends and i have visited two to three times now we love to do the share plates they are not only delicious but great value as well
Fantastic, would eat here again for sure. Food, staff, everything was spot on.
Amazing venue and amazing food. The vegan options were plentiful and beyond flavourful and filling. Will definitely make this our regular hang. Highly recommend!
This was my third time dining at Banksii and it was once again a very pleasant experience. We were looked after by the wonderful Julia, who was competent, efficient and always had a smile on her face - nothing was too much trouble. We actually had a few friends who cancelled on the dinner just before our reservation. We felt very sorry for the last minute change but Banksii was very understanding and made the adjustments straightaway. Thank you for a lovely evening; we'll definitely be recommending you!
The professionalism by the staff at Banskii was beyond amazing, the team were attentive and graceful and the whole evening was a sophisticated, food was beautiful, well priced and cocktails were well made and presented with style. We will be back!
The food and service was fantastic. We really enjoyed the set menu as we could try a number of different meals on the menu. Thanks for a great night.
good service ,great food, good atmosphere and vibe.
Awesome venue. Great food and wine menu
we got the course menu , i got the pork belly that was really tender and cooked just the way i lked it. The trifle is to die for! Love the over all experience!
Great vegan options, lovely service. The ambience was fantastic.
