Hartsyard is an award winning restaurant located in the heart of Newtown. Owned and operated by Australian born Jarrod Walsh and Hong Kong raised Dorothy Lee, whom have both worked in some of the best restaurants in Australia. Our philosophy is to showcase the best local produce Australia has to offer and tie that in with asian flavours and techniques. Our ever changing menu is inspired by the changing seasons so every experience will differ! We offer both an al a carte and set menu with the option for matched beverages.

Hartsyard is set on Enmore road embracing the neighbourhood vibe in a relaxed casual environment. We have limited outside seating in the warmer months. Hartsyard is only a two minute walk from Newtown station.

So glad I looked up "best restaurants in Newtown" as Hartsyard was listed. We were visiting from the Hunter where we have many wonderful restaurants and this was up with the best of them.
Food and Beverage
We chose the 3 course set menu with snacks and paired it with the beverage package which we would highly recommend as not only was the food deliciously different but so were the beverages that accompanied each of the courses including an aperitif and dessert wine
Service
Waitstaff were attentive and knowledgeable without being intrusive and chefs brought meals to the table to let us know about each of the dishes.
Definitely one not to be missed.

Fabulous food, well thought out & conceived just a bit too little/small to be honest. Terrific vibe, service, just a fraction too small portions for all dishes which meant left hungry!

Exceptional service and food!
We had MANY dietary requirements and not only did the staff go over and above with meeting them in the degustation they also explained how they had been met when every dish arrived.
Would 100% go back and recommended.
Staff were also extremely friendly and professional and I loved that everything was sourced in Australia.

The wine pairing made the meal enjoyable and some of the menu was really good, but some was a little disappointing. It was quite a nice experience - the service was good - but I wouldn’t rush back.

Amazing food with relaxed but super efficient service. Food was outstanding and beautifully paired with a diverse and delicious drinks menu. Big thanks to JR our waiter, was on the rest of the staff and of course the kitchen. One of our top 5 meals ever!

Lighting was much too low. We had to turn on phone flashlights to read the menu.
Matching wines were a little too esoteric.

Hartsyard is outstanding!!! I am keto vegan, so the chef personally created a five-course menu (plus additional snacks) especially for me, and personally served me each dish on a busy Saturday night! It is rare that a chef can adapt to such a specific diet. And, even more rare to receive that level of personalised service! Not only was the food keto and vegan, it was also in-keeping with the chef's style of cooking. Each dish was exquisitely presented and crafted for texture and taste. The chef personally checked on me afterwards to ensure that I enjoyed the exceptional food. I highly recommend this restaurant! It is a gem in Sydney!!!

I booked a table of 8 and when we go there the table was clearly too small
While they did apologise and provide us complementary oysters, it should have happened in the first place and they clearly knew it was too small as soon as we spoke to them.

Food is great, but if you are going in a larger group be sure you have enough space

It was our first time at the restaurant and will definitely be back. All the courses were excellent. We also ordered the special of the night - WA Marron with burnt butter curry sauce. It was super delicious. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you for a lovely night, celebrating a birthday!

imaginative, innovative food which is well presented and very interesting. The staff were very good at ensuring all of the COVID requirements were met, without being officious, which we appreciated. The wine menu, although possibly a bit expensive was also interesting and innovative

We went for a set menu dinner, which was terrific. All of the courses were very well planned in a perfect proportion to make you satisfied at the end of the experience and also very well combined. My friends and I simply loved every detail. We will come back for sure!!
