Barangaroo Ferry Terminal
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.
We all really enjoyed Banksii. Definitely be back!
Great experience and service whilst we celebrated our Anniversary over lunch! Thank you !
The food was incredible, we dined for lunch and service was wonderful too. We will be back!
A pleasant experience. Food was generous in portion size, and presented well. Wait staff could have provided a bit more suggestion on what to order.
Great Friday night dinner. Modern with warmth, fresh artisan style. Vermouth aperitifs were sensational. Very good helpful service. Really appreciate being moved to a pleasant seated bar area for dessert when our booking slot had finished. Barangaroo really has lived up to its promise. Only point to make is I'd love a tad more description with the menu, just because I like to know what goes in to make the dish work so well together.
After we sat down, the wait staff were lacking in attention. We had to wait a bit to get their attention and order our food. After the initial hiccup, it was all good. The atmosphere were nice but can be noisy. The food were phenomenal and good value of money. We love all our dishes but my friend and I loved the chicken pate. Honourable mentioned goes to the trout. I do wish we could have the table longer than 2 hours. This is the second time, I have been to Banksii. Definitely will recommend it to friends and family.
Everything was brilliant - service, food, ambience. Highly recommend this restaurant for a lovely evening.
Had a lovely lunch. Service and food excellent. We will be back
The service was amazing from the minute we arrived. That standard continued without falter for the entire night. The food was exquisite; absolutely beautiful. The seared Kingfish exceeded expectations. The vermouth selection was wide and the recommendations were perfectly fitting. The knowledge of product and service of the staff is commendable. It wasn't too much, or too little, and I left feeling more elated than I have ever felt from a restaurant experience. Five stars, and most certainly will be returning again.
Amazing food and exceptionally friendly and helpful staff! We were even given a sweet little surprise when I mentioned we were celebrating an anniversary to make a most memorable night.
Delicious fresh food. Very accessible menu with something for everyone.
The trifle is amazing.
Very enjoyable, it was a beautiful summer evening and our request for an outside table was granted. Tasty fresh food and friendly service.
When a staff member is intuitive and engaging the restaurant shines. Di our waitress was phenomenal. She attended to all our needs, even those we hadn't recognised or verbalised. The rest of the staff could learn a lot from Di.
The beef was fantastic, as were the prawns.
Overall a wonderful evening.
We ordered drinks before the food and had to wait quite a while, and ask again. This was repeated the next time we ordered drinks as well. The food on the other hand comes so quickly we would have got food before drinks. Thats not ideal as we wanted to unwind and have a drink before eating.
