Saint Peter

Paddington, Sydney, New South Wales

Price: $$$$
Seafood, Modern Australian


Transformed from a conventional table-and-chair dining room, the Saint Peter dining room is now intersected by a striking 12-metre Carrara marble-topped bar. With the kitchen on one side of the bench and diners on the other, the switch gives Niland and his fellow chefs more cooking space, while also giving diners an opportunity to watch the action from their comfortable, plush navy stools. The layout means the restaurant now seats just 18.


This set-up creates a kind of performative cooking experience. It allows Niland to further espouse the virtues of his pioneering fin-to-scale philosophy and the quality of the produce he and his chefs work with. That intimacy between diner and chef also transforms the restaurant experience into a quasi-masterclass, offering in-situ demonstrations of oysters being shucked, fillets being pin-boned and perfectly aged fish skin being grilled into pork-like crackling.
