Italian

Devine is one of the city’s most established wine bars, on the corner of Market Street and Clarence Street, in the heart of Sydney CBD and a short stroll to the QVB, State Theatre and Town Hall.
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, zucchini flowers 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 Wagyu Steak are a must!

Choose from over 400 wines on the Award winning wine list at Devine - with 40 available by the glass! European grape varieties and natural wine producers aplenty.

At just a stone’s throw from Darling Harbour, Devine is a must for corporate meals, social & family celebrations

    My daughter and I were in Sydney for the weekend from Melbourne and on a friend’s recommendation dined at Devine Food & Wine for dinner. The service was exceptional and the food excellent. Highly recommend the Prawn and Balmain Bug risotto and Wagyu Beef Pappardelle. Suggested wines for the main course and dessert by the waiter were superb. Will definitely be back when next in Sydney.

    Pros: Food was delicious and wine great. Service was excellent. Cons: Noise from large group tables was terrible and offputting. Setting was cosy, intimate, candle lit but destroyed by yelling guests packed into a small space. Candle light was fine but needed our cell phone lights to read the menu and to see the food when it was served.

    We were looking for a restaurant close to our guests hotel and picked Devine based on the excellent google star rating. Never having been there it was a bit of a let's see scenario however we loved the vibe of the restaurant as soon as we walked in. The staff were friendly & helpful & attentive. The wine selection was great - we chose an Italian Chianti which was exactly as our wait staff described. The food was delicious with quality produce. Afterwards the owner came over to give our international guests some tips on other great places to eat. We'll definitely go back.

    Have been to this restaurant a number of times pre Covid and the food was good and value was reasonable. However this most recent experience was very disappointing. It seems to have evolved into more of a wine bar than a good restaurant. The price has gone beyond good value ($38 for a pasta) and my Kingfish entree was so small you could hardly see it on the plate. The noise level was unacceptable for a good conservation. We were seated in the wine bar section, despite the request in our booking to be seated in the restaurant proper at the rear (the excuse was there was a party in that area, which on observation didn't seem to be the case). Overall a poor value, noisy and less than enjoyable experience, and I won't be back!

    Our waiter was excellent recommending delicious specials for entrée (stuffed zucchini flowers & Pambula oysters ) & mains (Italian crumbed veal cutlets) matched with beautiful wines for each course. Desserts were excellent recommendations of panacotta and semifredo. Overall, an excellent meal with fantastic service.
