Sharing the same funky-chic (and tongue-in-cheek) approach as its Elizabeth Bay sister restaurant, this Surry Hills delivers the goods. Offering a Modern Australian menu, original decor and of course, its impressive wine list, The Winery by Gazebo is great for weeknight drinks and boozy weekend gatherings.

In a restaurant complex, near the Campbell Street intersection on Crown Street.

Red leather lounges and white marble tables, pictures of Elvis that tell fancy fables, eclectic furniture that joy with it brings, these are a few of my favourite things…The Winery by Gazebo is not at all like the family Von Trapp, but it does boast a superb (and eclectic) collection of furniture and adornments. Split between several areas – an alfresco Parisienne terrace, a breezy dining bar area, a Baroque-esque private dining room and a lavish upstairs area – this restaurant and bar is filled with the irresistible, admirable style of its owners (which you might be familiar with from its Elizabeth Bay sister restaurant, Gazebo Wine Garden). So expect lavish red leather lounges next to cafe chairs and white marble tables of all sizes and shapes. Cow print lives comfortably next to Victorian lamps and vintage booths, while a wall of living greenery keeps company with red plastic chairs and tongue-in-cheek gold-framed pictures of Elvis.

But the focus of this restaurant, as its name (and flower-studded wine racks) would suggest, is vino. So once you’ve finished gaping about the room, you can give it your full attention. The wine list has earned some frequent flyer points with varieties from as far afield as Portugal, Germany, France and Italy making an appearance alongside local selections. There is also an amazing range of wines to choose from by the glass, including rare treats like the Penfolds “Grange”. The bar is also stocked with spirits and cocktails a-plenty. And there is a fantastic menu of modern European fare. Most of the dishes, like the chicken liver pate and the Champagne, grape and chicken pie have been carried from its sister restaurant, but there are some newbies, like a black olive and lamb burger with melted fetta, cucumber yoghurt, tomato and fries, as well.

The Winery by Gazebo - User Reviews


Everything was absolutely fantastic. Food, service and ambience. The whole family enjoyed themselves immensely. Nice to see staff that takes their food seriously but can still enjoy a laugh. Not cheap, but after a few bottles, who cares?review  18/06/2012
