Delightfully rich French food. Oysters always good. Surprising number of wine list bargains.
I love the place and its been a perfect hangout for me living in Potts Point, the staff are fabulous, considerate and caring
Great night out, the perfect choice for Valentines Day.
Food was top notch with perfect serving sizes and variety in each course
Service was outstanding too. The planned dessert had run out however the alternative was amazing and very professionally handled.
5 Stars - would definitely recommend
A busy night due to it being Valentine's Day but that just accentuated the bistro feel. The ambience is always going to be a touch noisy but very relaxed. A special degustation menu for the night was a great mix of flavours and the delivery was well paced. Service was friendly and efficient. All in all a great dining experience and a fun night out.
Excellent on all accounts. Food was incredibly delicious; the best steak I’ve had in memory. Staff were perfect and so many wait staff meant perfect service. Beautiful and welcoming layout. One of the best dining experiences we’ve had here or overseas.
Absolutely delicious- service was just right, and the food was really enjoyable. Great choices and great wine list too
Bistro Rex is one of our favourites in Sydney. Great service, delish food and a buzzy atmosphere.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Bistro Rex and highly recommend it. The wait staff was outstanding, the food delicious and it felt like a pretty good value for high-end Sydney dining.
just the best of everything and more
And we will go again
What an evening! I had heard about this place from a friend and didn't know what the fuss was all about until tonight. From the moment we (my girlfriend and I) walked in to Bistro Rex, we were greeted by a friendly staff member, and even though it was a fairly busy evening, he still took the time to take us to our seat and show us the menu. They were very attentive.
We needed a little help and so he recommended the Duck Leg for my girlfriend, and I got the Scotch Fillet. We also got a few side dishes and entree dishes (we were pretty hungry!). And the meals were perfect. They also had an enormous selection of French wines! We allowed them to recommend what they thought would be paired best with our meals and it was perfect.
Considering it was a fairly busy evening (you need to book or you may miss out on a seat), it wasn't too loud. The restaurant is pretty big, so they can comfortably cater for a large number of people. But the dimmed lights, music and ambience in general made you feel like you were in a boutique restaurant right in the heart of France, so they play that card very well!
I would definitely recommend Bistro Rex to my mates, and look forward to going back very soon. Thank you for a great night! :)
We were a bit puzzled about why Bistro Rex was so quiet on a Friday night. My wife and I used to live in Potts Point and Bistro Rex was our favourite restaurant not just for the cuisine but also for the atmosphere. The place used to be buzzing and there was a queue out the door every weekend night. So why has this splendid French eatery lost its popularity? In terms of food enjoyment, the mains was a big win but everything else lacked the "wow" factor. Nowhere in Sydney does a better steak and the "Steak Frites" really does transport you back to a pre-yellow vest Paris when France was still a great country. The beef tartare did not pack the same punch as the last time we dined here. It lacked seasoning and the accompanying puff pastries were over-baked. Plus, the Sydney Rock oysters lacked that fresh-off-the-boat zestiness. Alas, perhaps this quaint bistro is on a downward spiral and this is deeply saddening as it truly was one of the best joints in town.
Outstanding yet again, wait staff knowledgeable and friendly, food amazing as always. Can’t wait to see you all again soon.
We spend a really lovely time to the Bistro Rex last Monday with my husband. Amazing wine menu ! Perfect for french palete. The menu as simple as it is, still Taste amazing. We were feeling in France just for one night. Service was perfect, thank to all the staff. We will be back for sure.
Bistro Rex continues to deliver excellent food and service to locals and newcomers alike. Every customer is made to feel welcome,drinks and food arrive promptly in a lively and chic atmosphere.
Date night with the wife. Great food, amazing service and all round great dining experience
Great food and excellent service.
Got preferences right
Staff are outstanding
Another beautiful lunch. Superb fish. Great service
Absolutely terrific, one of the best meals I’ve had in Sydney. Fantastic service, great wine and the food was incredible.
We had the grand banquet menu and it was worth every penny.
Been looked after well by nick. He emailed and call us before hand. Good value for money. I went back second time and will be more to come
They are really pro and know what they are doing. My friends like it and impressed.
This was my second time I'd been to Bistro Rex and I was showing it off to my father - they didn't disappoint . I loved it again and Dad is keen to go back next time he's in Sydney.
Lovely neighbourhood restaurant with authentic French Food...
Catered for food allergies.
Pate is amazing!!
Nice night for my and a friends birthday.
Good food, was a late booking and didn’t feel rushed to leave
FINALLY AFTER MANY ATTEMPTS TO GET TO BISTRO REX - WE MADE IT! WE HAD AN EXCELLENT TABLE WITH ATTENTIVE, PROFESSIONAL, POLISHED SERVICE THAT DIDNT MISS A BEAT! OUR WAITER WAS ALSO VERY KNOWLEDGABLE ABOUT THE DIETRY AND BEVERAGE QUESTIONS THAT THE TABLE HAD, WHICH WAS A REFRESHING CHANGE.
THE MENU WAS AN EXCELLENT WELL BALANCED CRAFTED LIST OF FRENCH CLASSICS AND PROVIENCIAL STYLES. THE FOOD ITSELF WAS OUTSTANDING AND PASSIONATELY COOKED WITH EXCELLENT FLAVOURS THROUGHOUT ALL THE DISHES.
THE DESIGN OF THE SPACE IS VERY UPMARKET BUT LENDS ITSELF TO ALL TYPES OF EXPERIENCES FROM A CASUAL DRINK AT THE BAR TO A FULL ON FORMAL NIGHT. THE VIBE INSIDE WAS UBER COOL WITH A FANTASTIC MIX OF CLIENTEL.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BISTRO REX AND I CANT WAIT TO GET BACK TO TRY IT AGAIN.
Fantastic service with a great bistro menu that has all the classics. Superb selection of wine to go with anything you order.
This is my first time at Rex Bistro. It was a great experience and as a chef, I like everything about this place from foods to service.
A perfect lunch. Food wonderful. Service exemplary
I just love this restaurant! No matter what time I have been there to eat, the food is always good, the wait staff friendly, atmosphere fantastic and top cocktails 🍸
As always, a fantastic night at Bistro Rex. Couldn't fault it really. Staff were very welcoming and friendly, laying the groundwork for a great night. Brilliant food, service and fab buzz to the evening before Christmas Day.
Looking forward to the next visit. Thank you.
Dinner at Bistro Rex was a wonderful mixture of professional service and style with a clever and thoughtful menu, and an impressive (French) wine list. Highly recommended for a first date or that family gathering, or quick lunch with a friend.
We were made feel very welcome by the owner Peter . The staff were tremendous , the service quick and efficient . Will be back and recommend .
This was our second visit to Bistro Rex and again weren’t disappointed. The wait staff were great with recommending food, the wine was amazing and the food. So good!
Food was tasty. Chips were fabulously well cooked-not a spot of oil However food was very plain- a piece of steak on a plate with NOTHING else on it. Very small portions for the price. Constant service from the staff to know if we want to drink anything to the point of being annoying.
Just nothing to entice us back unfortunately
Beautiful food, great wine list, and the wait staff were so helpful. We arrived an hour early as the bar we’d arranged to meet at was closed. The staff were so helpful that they put together a table as we waited, even though the restaurant was packed. Loved it!
Great dining experience. Lovely friendly staff and the service is great! Love the tasty menu
Initially you wonder what will the food be like....looks more like a pub/bar...surprise surprise...food was and is excellent and so the service....wine list is dominated by french which a touch difficult for some of us not necessarily very familiar with....I suppose assistance available if required...overall very interesting joint but again the food and the service indeed very very good...!!!
Very attentive staff with exceptional food at read prices
we have been there on 4 occasions now and it is too noisy and too hot.
The aircon only works in the front of resturant the back is very hot
Loved the vibrancy enjoyed watching the open kitchen with chef being the maestro of the whole restaurant
Authentic, interesting and very well cooked French bistro food with an Australian twist. Attentive competent and friendly service. Very nice open ambience. Lots of tiled surfaces but noise attenuated so coversation easy. Good wine list.
