We dine at Johnny Fishbone weekly. The food is delicious. We particularly like that the menu changes constantly so there is no chance of getting bored! It’s really reasonably priced for Sydney. The owners and staff are experienced restaurateurs, super friendly and look after their regulars. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

This is a great little place. Bar seating is fun if it’s just two or three of you. Cocktails are made well, and menu is usually pretty small (share style), but most things are very very good as a result.

busy and noisy but all for good reason. The cocktails were good, wine excellent and well priced ......and the food. Veal tartare was spectacular.....cheese and pepper risotto was perfect winter meal. Great value and no wonder its popular.

We enjoyed everything about Johnny Fishbone! Food was great but the fusilli was pretty spicy (still delicious though). Particularly enjoyed the croquettes 😍

Super tasty, super sharp menu (changes every week too!)
Wine list is Spanish/Italian focus with very interesting drops that you don't see anywhere.
Hectic service run by 2 professional and friendly staff who makes you feel like you have been long time friends!

This is a really nice place for a get together and share a bottle and some food. The wine selection is good and the tapas selection keeps on changing, so you never know what's on the menu. Service is warm and friendly with good attention to detail.

The menu changes all the time but the smoked prawns are often available. They are amazing, but so was everything we ate.

We loved our first meal at Johnny Fishbone.
So handy to transport we commuted 20 Klm and it was worth it!
Stepped inside great atmosphere one look around I could see happy faces at work the bar was great and the food was absolutely exceptional we are amazed at the high quality of food and the range of options on menu. Even the handwritten menu looked special . We ordered a Pino Gris from Orange and was told all about our choice prior to trying it was beautiful and so worth it too.
Service was great but the food was the star of our night we loved everything we tried yum!
We are coming back soon and are sending other family there next week !
The chef and kitchen staff all look so happy , food is creative clever and delicious ! This kind of food can only ever be supported by good management
Fav dish of the night was toss up between wagu grained beef paper thin. And the swordfish wow !
Thank you Johnny fishbone
Kind regards
Toni and Russell

Great service but the food was awful. The food menu is a clear afterthought. Three pieces of supermarket salami doused in oil and a dollop of cheese on top is an entree one serves at home and not at a restaurant. Will not be coming again.

Wow! Had a really enjoyable evening. Food was class, accompaniment of wine was top shelf and to cap it off, service from Bruno, was exceptional. Would highly recommend and will continue to guide people in their direction as a suggestion.
Food was fresh, well priced and above all, YUM!
