Devine is the spot to find tapas, Italian-inspired a la carte and an excellent wine by the glass selection. Long known for it’s popular lunches and after work eats, you’ll see the hustle and bustle of the city coming in to wind down; sinking into the banquettes or sitting up at the bar with some share plates.
Freshly shucked Sydney Rock Oysters, local tuna crudo and artisan salumi boards might be the best way to start. Then any of the daily house made pastas, market fresh fish of the day, or the MB7+ Wagyu Steak are all too satisfying to ignore.
There are over 400 wines on the list at Devine - with 40 available by the glass! European grape varieties and producers are the specialty.
At just a stone’s throw from Darling Harbour too, Devine is the city’s own little piece of Europe

This classic venue is s great place to catch up for a drink, snack or meal, great wine list, nice short food list that works for sharing. Best of all it is possible to hear!!
As per our previous visits it was a great experience, strongly recommend to all looking for a great experience.
Great food, excellent wine list and helpful attentive staff. I reallyenjoyed it and would recommend to anyone.
Great place to dine! Would go back. Lovely food, wine and staff.
Excellent food and service. Great to see the restaurant keeping up the Covid safe standards as well
Highly recommend this restaurant. Food was amazing and will definitely be back.
Good spot, scallops entree perfection, risotto main also delicious. Octopus inedible but there was no problem having it taken off the bill. Nice ambience, wine list needs improvement and is a little overpriced but overall would return.
Hi Terri, thanks for your review and sorry about the octopus. As a requirement to be Covid compliant with disposable menu's, we have designed a short listing of wines as a reference and in addition we have a much broader selection of wines on our main list which is available for anyone to peruse. We hope to see you again soon.
Very acceptable. A touch expensive, but would go back.
Delicious food and exceptional staff. The food was brought out very quickly but was expertly cooked. A good wine list with a wide range.
The cocktail menu seemed small but the wait staff offered custom cocktails without prompting.
Sincere thanks for the positive review. You are right about our cocktail menu. Normally, we have over 15 cocktails to choose from however at the moment we are focusing on 5 different cocktails a month whilst we reboot post Covid. And yes, we will make anything you desire so long as we have the ingredients!
Lovely meal, professional & friendly service. Have gone passed on the bus to & from work, was working over weekend and had a chance to dine. We'll worth it & can't wait to come back.
Thanks Bradley, we appreciate you trying us out and are delighted we met your expectations!
Had a lovely meal with my sisters. Food was lovely, the ragun was lovely. The staff were very attentive and made our evening even more enjoyable. Would definitely go back.
Thanks Janine - we're glad you enjoyed our ragu matched with out attentive service. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The beetroot risotto was to die for; the service, as always, was fantastic.

Beautiful food in a cosy and romantic setting. Great service also! Would definitely come back :)
Thanks you Claire! We appreciate your review and thanks you for supporting us post Covid. See you again soon.
Amazing food, great service, wonderful experience and social distancing laws observed. I felt very safe and comfortable at Devine. Thank you for a great evening.
Thanks Naomi, We take social distancing, venue hygiene and customer safety very seriously, so much so we are now a NSW accredited Covid Safe Venue. Thanks for dining with us and we hope to see you again soon.
How good is it to eat out again??? De Vine was a great choice for dinner. The staff were friendly and helpful especially organising affogato as a request for my son’s dessert. We shared entrees (octopus, meatballs and antipasto) and then had lamb shoulder and barramundi. Everything was delicious. We had a lovely meal and will be back for dinner as well as the wine bar.
Hello there, We really thank you for coming in last week. It was great fun looking after your family and thank you for allowing us to provide the wine recommendation which we are pleased you really enjoyed. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Excellent service and top quality food / wine selection.
Always great here. Food is delicious and friendly service. Cocktails are lovely!
Absolutely wonderful service, food and wine. The host selected a fabulous Italian wine that hit the spot. The ambience was perfect for a date
Thanks for your review. We are delighted our wine recommendation matched with your food, hit the spot!
Waiters helpful, but the food service was excruciatingly slow - even though we arrived early, had plenty of time and notified in advance that we had a concert to go to. We had to regularly ask where both our entrée and main courses were - and then had to rush them. Really not great.
Pre theatre dinner. Wait staff were excellent, food was delicious. Excellent array of wines to choose from, though quite expensive. Would definitely go back.
I lunched here with a friend and we both agreed DeVine was delightful- we could have been in a gorgeous trattoria in Italy (great ambience) . The food was exquisite, from super-fresh entrees of tuna carpaccio and a shaved celeriac salad to squid ink linguini with calamari and mussels that tasted of the sea and ricotta cannoli zesty with candied orange peel.
The wine list is huge and plenty of by the glass options.
Really lovely dining room - be sure to request this if you want a quiet meal. HUGE wine selection. Scrumptious food. Only one block to the State Theatre so great for pre-show dinners.
Attentive service, course could have been more spaced out, was too quick between each course.
Great place in CBD area not far from Darling Harbour. Despite being a quiet Monday, food and service was great and would definitely return.
Wonderful Italian food in a lovely atmosphere. The staff are very attentive and polite and the wine list is longer than the Iliad.
Staff were very helpful and friendly and the ambiance was good for a team lunch. Food was delicious.
Been there a few times but never for dinner. This time we had dinner there but felt disappointed with the meal. We ordered small plates and a pasta dish. The insquid pasta dish was too salty and did not have much seafood in it. The oysters were ok but wished they did some sort of dressing and not just a wedge of lemon.
Love the wine and their selections.
Excellent food and service. The only downside is that you don't serve pizza in the Restaurant section and only in the bar section.
Fortunately for us the waiter and owner allowed us to order pizza even through we were in the Restaurant area and it made our night.
Another awesome feature of the venue is the fact that they have Bira Moretti on tap! Amazing :)
Really lovely meal. Nice service and pleasant surroundings and a great wine selection.
We loved the service (our server was a young guy from Manchester, England) and each course was very good with ample portions. Extensive wine list (like a book!). The only negative comment is about the hostess (blonde woman). She first seated us in the bar at a table with no table cloth and amid high top tables - perhaps due to our Open Table reservation? I requested seating in the restaurant and after checking, she obliged. She (and a few other servers) were welcoming or as friendly (without being overbearing) as our server.
Great food, excellent wine selection and friendly staff.
