Concierge.com's insider take:
The chichi elegance of the restaurant inside the Establishment Hotel, with its columns and pressed-iron ceiling, polished timber floors, and crisp linens, is aptly matched by the sophistication of chef Peter Doyle's food. The dishes sound deceptively simple—like the salad of sand crab, avocado, and pink grapefruit, or fillet of John Dory baked in a carrot juice–and-sherry sauce. But once you taste these creations, you'll understand exactly why est. was chosen 2006 Restaurant of the Year by the Sydney Morning Herald: Simple can also mean perfect.
Open Mondays through Fridays noon to 3 pm and 6 to 10:30 pm, Saturdays 6 to 10:30 pm.
