This is our Restaurant of choice when we want something relaxed, but a little bit Special.
Unobtrusive but attentive service superb flavour combinations, an ambience reflecting the art Deco surroundings. Love it!

Please don't change the current formula - price, quality of food and service. Perfect as it is. If any of these dimensions are changed I will go somewhere else.

Great food and ambience. The only fault I could find is that it takes a while for the food to be delivered

One of the hidden gems in the city. Excellent value for a 4-course dinner with good quality food. The service staff were friendly and very attentive. Good ambience, although I thought it was a little darker than I would have liked. The one suggestion I have if for them is to expand the dessert menu. Other than that it is a great place to have dinner with friends. I am also a member of the Primus Hotel and you get very generous discounts on top of the already reasonable price.

Unique venue, aspect looking across the foyer captivating. Remodelling, while modern, is quite sympathetic to the age of the building. Food very good, however the kitchen had trouble coping with the number of guests (including a table of 24 and two tables of 8-10). We waited a long time for our food - staff very attentive and provided an additional complimentary glass of wine and apologies. Will go again.

There were 2 or 3 things unavailable to be ordered, even though we arrived when afternoon tea started.
Staff were friendly enough but not really attentive.- took a while to order tea/ food.
Some of the sweeter items were very average, savoury items were quite tasty.

Delicious food with perfect presentation served in the art deco environment of the 1930-40's museum of the Sydney Water Board. The only drawback is the set menu.

Centrally located in Sydney, this is a lovely lunch or dinner venue. The set-price menu is good value. Our meals were tasty and we'd recommend the grilled barramundi as a main.

Service started very good, but then slowed down tremendously. It took almost an hour between course two and course three, and the restaurant wasn’t incredibly busy. Chicken in course three seemed undercooked in areas.

This is my favourite place to eat in the CBD. I have been there 3 times now and it never disappoints.
The service is excellent along with the food. I will be going back on my next trip to the City.

Great value dinner menu, though the courses started coming out a little quickly. Once we'd spoken to the right waitstaff, the service was more spread out. Food was excellent. Even the house wine was quite reasonable.

A lovely meal, as always, in as beautifully restored Art Deco space. The menu range for main courses is small but they are delicious and attractively presented. The service is excellent.

Food was average. Some highlight and lowlights. Dessert options were dull and not very tasty. Overall, for a 4 course meal, it felt very rushed as there was no or minimal break b/n courses

This was the second time that we dined at here and it was just as good as the first time. The service was excellent - one of our group didn't come, so the staff moved us to a nearby table with better seating for 5, at our request. The staff really try to go the extra mile. The food is also very good. We will dine here again.

We are members of a book club called The Happy Bookers,, so we needed an area where we could discuss the book we had to read whilst having coffee..and the Primus Hotel fitted the bill with a generous seating area...then on to lunch at the Wilmot..a few steps away, where we enjoyed a very good lunch , great food and
good service. The Happy Bookers will be back no doubt about that.
